David Spiro, a 2010 graduate of Scarsdale High School, won the Scarsdale Golf Club Men's Club Championship on Sunday, July 31, 2022, triumphing over defending champion, John Kawakami, in the 36-hole final. He won the finals 2&1 on the 35th hole. The club championship is match play format, with an 8-player bracket.
