Battle at/of the Beach | Hot Shooting!!

The Battle at/of the Beach was a fantastic event using both the normal layout and a 4 hole alternate teepad layout.   Coming into the break, NJ’s Hank Hendry shot a new course record with a -13 (45)!   Also, we had THREE AceHoles, Harry Ward, Mike Ande, and John Rabago!  Nice Job.

Following the second round, Hank reigned superior after a hot 2nd round -9 (51) was shot by Lou Garcia.  Top Three were Hank, Lou, and Lat64’s teen prodigy, Finley Buchanan-Jacobs.  Robin Billig ruled the Gmen field besting second by 6 throws!  Jeff Voorhees dominated MA1, Chris Krause destroyed MA2, Joe Franciose nipped MA3.   Jean Kopchak took down the Rec Ladies, Carl “Cubby” Cubbedge beat down the MG1s and Kevin Shermer hailed supreme in MM1.

Many thanks to the Hole Sponsors, Chris Hansen Construction, Coondogg, Frank, Chip & Cubby, Joe Harker, and our Friends of Doc Cramer.

Without further ado, scores are here:
