#Marshfield Native Geoff #Sisk Captures #CapeCod Open Title!

It's shaping up to be an exciting 2012 season for competitive golf  here in New England!  3 times a charm for local Marshfield native Geoffrey Sisk who captured his 3rd Cape Cod Open title (1994,2004) yesterday amongst one of the strongest fields in the 21 year history of this 54 hole event!   Geoff opened his qualifying round at Olde Barnstable Fairgrounds tying the course record of 64 then posted 2 sub-par rounds (68,69) at the Hyannis Golf Club, setting a tournament record 12 under par 201.  Other notables were Dustin Cone of Bennington, Vt. and Andrew Guiliani of Westchester County, NY who finished 5 shots back and at 4 under par 209 a three way tie for 4th place ~ Abby Valentine of Bayville NY,  Rob Corcoran of Melbourne, Fla and Eric Dugas of So. Boston, MA.   Sisk's off to the 103rd Massachusetts Open Championship next week June 5~ 7th at the Walpole Country Club where he's vying for a 7th win!
