Tyler LaPrad and his father, Steve LaPrad, won a three-hole, tie-breaker July 14 to win the Summerville Country Club Member-Member Championship tournament.
The field played four different nine-hole formats: best ball, captains choice, shamble and alternate shot. Team LaPrad and the team of Kirk Woods and Christian Woods both came in on the second day of the two-day tournament with a score of 127. But the LaPrads won the third playoff hole to claim the 2019 Member-Member Championship.
Tyler is a former Fort Dorchester quarterback and baseball player while his father is the Fort Dorchester Athletic Director and head football coach. To claim the title, the duo topped some teams that included athletes known more for their golf skills.
