Guys & Gals Tournament

A total of 33 one-man-andone- woman teams participated in the Guys & Gals Tournament at Leisure World’s Turtle Lake Golf Course on March 30. Three flights of golfers competed for best net scores, eight circle holes (within a 5-foot radius) and two closest-to-the-pin challenges.

At the opening 7:30 a.m. tee time, the weather was a relatively warm and partly overcast. But the sun came out quickly, and it was a pleasure to play in its warmth, though there was a slight wind after 11 a.m. A remarkable 27 of the 33 teams posted a net score at or under par; plus, there were 40 birdies and six circle holes.

All scores below are net. A Flight encompasses of handicaps of 0-9; B Flight is 10-12, and C Flight is 13-18.

A Flight: First place: Bob Barnum and Kyung Ju, a very well-played 10 under 44; second: Terry Thrift and Mary Ann Moore, a super 6 under 48; third: tie between Young Lee and Hae Lee, Bob Turner and Janice Turner, and Kyoo Choi and Bong Choi, a terrific 5 under 49; fourth: tie between Paul Alloway and Ann Tran and Bill Lyons and Pam Krug, a sweet 4 under 50.

B Flight: First place: Walt Bier and Margie Thompson, a super 8 under 46; second: Steve Walker and Yvonne Yim, an outstanding 7 under 47; third: Byron Schweitzer and Bert Thompson, an excellent 6 under 48; fourth: Ron Jackson and Dale Quinn, a very good 4 under 50; fifth: Fujio Norihiro and Pattie Smith, a nice 3 under 51.

C Flight: First place: Pat Paternoster and Elizabeth Butterfield, a tournament-best 11 under 43; second: Lee Broadbent and Joann Lim, an excellent 7 under 47; third: Dennis Jensen and Marilyn Hewitt, a first-rate 4 under 50; fourth: tie between Dave LaCascia and Liz Meripol, James Choi and Grace Choi, and Brian Tivnan and Patty Littrell, a fine 2 under 52.

Closest to the pin on the second hole were Byron Schweitzer and Linda Herman, while on the 11th hole, it was Joon Sup Yoon and Devora Kim.
