Golf League Results for March 11, 14

On March 11, 13 men and one guest of the Leisure World Golf League braved a windy but sunny morning at the Meadowlark Golf Course in Huntington Beach. A demanding course coupled with the windy conditions produced only three scores below par, but there were five birdies.

All scores are net (gross minus handicap). A Flight handicaps are 0-19, while B Flight are over 19.

A Flight: First place: Tim Looney, a well-played 2 under 68, plus fewest putts; second: Jim Goltra, a hard-earned 1 over 71, plus a birdie and closest to the pin on the 140-yard 16th hole; third: tie between Dave LaCascia and Sam Choi, at 4 over 74; fourth: Bill McKusky; fifth: tie between Fujio Norihiro, Gary Stivers, Chris Lankford and Larry Hillhouse.
