Men’s Golf Club Tournament

The first of two Leisure World Men’s Golf Club Tournaments this month was played on July 14. Two groups of three flights of variously skilled golfers vied for best net scores (gross score minus handicap), plus four circle holes (shots withina5-footcirclerewarded)and two closest-to-the-pin challenges.

A total of 52 golfers teed off at the Turtle Lake Golf Course and played 18 holes through the early morning and into the afternoon. The weather was sunny at the 7:30 a.m. start, and the temps and humidity rose quickly. There was little wind, and what did come up later was welcomed.

The fairways are in very good condition, but the tee boxes have not recovered from their dormant period.Evenso,withgreatfairways and much improved greens, 31 of 51 rounds were net at or under par.

A Flight encompasses golfers with handicaps of 0-7; B Flight is 8-11; and C Flight is 12-18. All scores below are net (gross score minus handicap).

A Flight Winners: First place: tie between Mike Mayfield and Bill Long, a nice 4 under 50; second: tie between John Kolthoff, Steve Walker and Bill Lyons, 3 under 51; third: tie between Dave LaCascia, Jae H. Lee, Ron Steele and Bob Barnum, 2 under 52.

B Flight Winners: First place: tournament director Alan Sewell, a fantastic 7 under 47; second: Won Lee, a nice 5 under 49; third: tie between Young Lee and Ron Jackson, a terrific 4 under 50; fourth: tie between Walt Bier and Trai Nguyen, 3 under 51.

C Flight Winners: First place: Sang H. Kim, a nicely played 7 under 47; second: Steve Kang, a splendid 6 under 48; third: Lee Broadbent, a super 5 under 49; fourth: Bill Zurn, a fine 4 under 50; fifth: tie between Mike Carlson and Dennis Jensen, 3 under 51; sixth: Won Song, 2 under 52; seventh: Jong Lee, 1 under 53.
