Tournament Summary:
by Rod Manalo: Secretary of the RSMC

90 Members (57) and Guests (33) signed up to compete in this tournament. The format was a shamble.
  The specifics are as follows:

All players teed off from the white tees; Ladies teed off from red tees. The team selected one of the drives as the spot from which all team members hit their next shot.  All players completed the hole from the spot of the selected drive, playing their own ball. The two best NET scores on each hole were used to determine the “Team” score.  Par was 144. The team had to use a minimum of three drives from each member. This left a buffer of six drives for the team. In the event a team had only 3 players, then the players within the team set a rotational sequence where each team member played a second ball on each hole from the spot of the selected drive.  Each team member had to use a minimum of 4 drives.

July 15 handicaps were used for all the players. Those players who did not have an official handicap had their handicap calculated using the Wilson Handicap System. Their total strokes on holes: 1, 8, 9, 12, 14 and 17 were used.

As you can see, the team of Jerry Kuenster (22), John Barbour (17), Kevin Carlson (16) and Dan Owen (18) shot a phenomenal score of 42 under par: 102 to win first place in the tournament. This proves that the drive's distance and position is important in the game of golf. By using the best selected drive on each hole, Jerry shot a gross 82 (net 60); John shot a gross 82 (net 65); Kevin shot a gross 80 (net 64) and Dan shot a gross 76 (net 58).

In second place was the team of Fred Osmond (12) gross 77; John Lloyd (17) gross 75; Barney Babb (16) gross 80 and Debbie Babb (28) gross 97. Their team score was 108.

For the prize money, the complete final results are listed under Tournament Results:

Congratulations to all the winners.
