Win in the 2-Man Scramble Tournament
Tournament Summary:
by Rod Manalo: Secretary of the RSMC

62 members (31 teams) entered the tournament with the goal to win their flight in the 2-Man Scramble Tournament. The teams were divided into three flights. The team handicap was 25% of the sum of the team members. The maximum team handicap was 10.

The course conditions were great. Weather was great.

Each player teed off; team members then selected the drive to be used. The ball’s position was marked and both players hit from that spot within 1 club length of the mark no nearer the hole. This procedure continued until the ball was holed. When putting, the ball was placed within one putter head length of the selected shot, no nearer the hole. If a ball was holed out before a player’s teammate putted, then the team recorded that score. Hazards: The original ball was hit from the spot where it lay; the second player was allowed to place the ball in the hazard within 1 club length of the mark no nearer the hole.

Each member of the team had to use at least three drives on the front nine and the back nine.

1st Flight (9 teams / HCP 4-6): Tom (Michael) Terry / Mike Citta (6) won this flight with a net score of 61. In 2nd place was Bill Hinton / Tom Jackson (4) with a net score of 62. Tom Newkirk / Pat Bello (5) placed 3rd with a net score of 63.

2nd Flight (11 teams / HCP 7-8): Barney Babb / Alex Villanueva (8) placed first in this flight with a net 61. Frank Scholl / Andrew Mullins (8) placed 2nd with a net 63. The teams of Dave Eubanks / Harry Herrera (7); Ron Donahue / Dale Ramirez (7); Mark Bentley / Gustavo Ron (7) and Mike Cathcart / Butch Bishop (8) shot a net 65. Dave and Harry placed 3rd, and Ron and Dale place 4th via the scorecard playoff.

3rd Flight (11 teams / HCP 9-10): The teams of Jim Wilson / Ken Wilson (10); Steve Bittner / Tom Bittner (10) and Doug Young / Patrick Rowzee (10) shot a net 63. Jim and Ken place 1st.
