Message from Hugh Quinn
Mother Nature was kind yesterday with a beautiful, sunny day but a little chilly to start. I’d like to thank Vivian and Jeanne from the TLGA for handling registration and the contests. Also, Rob Heflin helped at registration as well until we needed a last minute substitution and he got to play. He and his partner, Benny Murrill, finished 2nd in Flight 4.
Since this is a challenging type of tournament to score, I appreciated all the guys who helped at the end getting this done: Brian Nason, Matt Edwards, Stevie Blankenship, Nick Hamner and I know I missed a couple of other guys who helped. Thanks to all!
Flight Winners were:
Flight 1 – Chris Blankenship and Brian Nason
Flight 2 – Glenn Levine and Mark Harper Sr.
Flight 3 – Sam Crawley and David Fay
Flight 4 – Gene Cox and Mark Hartson
Flight 5 – Steve Felenczak and Carlos Rodriguez.
All the above players are now eligible for our year-end Tournament of Champions in November. The ToC is an individual event.
The first three teams in each flight received Gift Cards. Any ties were decided using the USGA method. See attachment for complete results.
Contest Winners were:
Closest To Pin #3 – Mark Nieters/Stevie Blankenship
Closest to Pin #11 – Donnie Holt/Rich Baytosh (paid)
Greenie #7 – Dickie Brewer/Hugh Quinn (paid)
Greenie #16 – David Wilson/Matt Edwards
Each was worth $70.
In the Skins Game, there were only two skins out and the winners were Steve Livingston/Joe Brooks on #5 with a birdie and William Harkey/Tom Birrittieri on #17 with a birdie. Each skin was worth $140 each and paid out.
If you did not receive your gift card or contest prize, the TGA has it. You can check with any Officer (me, Jim Williams, Brian Sainz, Hayes Smith and Joe Brooks) the next time you’re at the Club or it will also be available at our next event which is April 13 – more details to come on that one.
For our New Members as well as a reminder to our experienced Members, please remember to check in with the TLGA ladies at registration for each tournament which is always in the Grill Room, just past the Golf Shop. When the rounds are completed, we meet in the room adjacent to the restaurant counter to turn in scorecards and talk about how great we played or the one of many shots that got away!
