Giannetto’s tandem ties for second

PEOSTA — Elmwood Country Club Golf Professional Jay Giannetto and his playing partner Chad Proehl from Sugar Creek Municipal Golf Course in Waukee tied for second place in the Iowa PGA Professionals’ Pro-Pro event on Monday at Timberline Golf Course.

Giannetto and Proehl teamed up to shoot a 7-under-par round of 65, sharing second place with Sean McCarty and Jeff Schmid of Brown Deer Golf Club in Coralville. The two teams trailed the winners — Chris Black of Hickory Grove Golf Course and Darin Fisher of The Preserve on Rathbun Lake — by two strokes.

Giannetto and Proehl paired up for five birdies on the front nine and three more on the back, mixing in just one bogey. All eight of their birdies came on either par 4s or par 5s.
