The Grande Meadows Men's Night Committee held its second Annual 4 Person Best Ball tournament on Saturday with a full complement of 70 golfers on 18 teams participating.
At the end of the day there were 2 teams tied for first place and 2 teams tied for third place so a playoff was held to decide the winners. The playoff consisted of one shot for each team member from the 150 yard marker on Hole # 9 with the closer to the pin winning.
In the battle for first with the two teams tied at -8, Derek Moulton bounced a nine iron to within 14 feet of the pin to clinch the title for the second year in a row. Other team members included Tim, Timothy and Terry Walters. Finishing in second place was the team of Ryan Lane, Matthew Shea, Colin Hodder and Brian Hicks.
In the playoff for third place Paul Hartson hit an eight iron to within 15 feet to barely beat out Jerry Adams shot which was about 17 feet from the pin. Other members of Hartson's team were Perry Stone, Matthew Hackett and Sam Warren. Finishing in fourth along with Adams were Morley Adams, Charlie Loughlin and George Brushett. Both teams finished the 18 holes at -7.
Closest to the pin prizes were Brent Clarke on Hole # 7 while Mike Russell claimed the closest to the pin with his second shot on Hole # 9.
In a putting contest Edmund Antle claimed the prize of which he donated to minor golf. Overall $60.00 was raised for minor golf.
Special thanks for a very successful tournament goes out to the Men's Night Committee consisting of Ray Walsh, Ches Cribb, Edmund Antle and John Bugden.
