Forsgate Country Club’s Frank Esposito Wins Third New Jersey Senior Open Championship Title

Esposito Leads 2018 New Jersey Senior Player of the Year Race

(Monroe Township, NJ)—Forsgate Country Club congratulates Frank Esposito, a member of its Teaching Professional staff, on winning the 2018 New Jersey PGA/New Jersey State Golf Association Senior Open, which was contested at Green Brook Country Club in North Caldwell last week.  Esposito, 55, successfully defended his 2017 Senior Open title with rounds of 67 and 70 to finish two shots clear of his nearest challengers. He earned his first NJPGA/NJSGA Senior Open victory in 2014.

Esposito, who said his game was off for most of the summer, admitted that going into the second round he found it tough to play with the lead. “All kinds of things go through your head, but you just kind of go about your business,” he said. “I was struggling off the tee and I started to lose confidence. In this game, you’ve got to have confidence. It’s always nice to win an open championship in your state.” Esposito currently holds a slim points lead for 2018 New Jersey Senior Player of the Year honors, an accomplishment he achieved in 2017 and 2014.

Considered by many as New Jersey’s best senior golfer, Esposito has played in PGA TOUR Champions Tour tournaments, competed in the U.S. Open and in two PGA Championships. In 2014, he won the prestigious Senior PGA Professional National Championship. Esposito has a stellar New Jersey golf resume. He is a five-time NJPGA Player of the Year, a two-time NJ Open champion and is a member of the New Jersey PGA Hall of Fame.
