PeopleChamp_2_2

The 2014 Peoples Championship is in the books. The week leading up to the event, Mother Nature dumped a monumental amount of rain and flooded the course. With the determination of the local club, members of the club headed out the Friday before to find the water receded and there to only be a need for 1 temp hole.

Saturday morning 82 golfers came out expecting horrible conditions however they were greeted by great weather and even better camaraderie! Saturdays end of play was met with mixed results…a trunkload of pizza…and a passing shower.

Sunday was moving day. A bunch of 2nd card MPOs jumped to the top 4 for the final 9. In Grandmasters, the top 3 golfers were all within a few strokes going into the Final 9.

The Final 9 was no walk in the park. It was estimated to be a brutiful safari with a par of 34. If your shot was off of fairway…the recovery was at least 2 shots.

In the end…both MPO Devin Frederick and MPG Robin Billig reigned supreme for their 4th-peat! Masters winner was Richie Klinger while Hannah Leather, the only woman to play took home Pro Ladies.

In the advanced field, Zach Rex bested the field of 22 with a scorching final 9 to win by 5 after trailing by 2 going in. Cooper Michael took down the Intermediate division while Danny Carden Jr scored the win in the Recreational Division.

Maple Hill Qualifer winners were Andy Difronzo, Hank Hendry and Bob Hoffman!

Peoples Championship Update

As you know Mother Nature beat up and flooded Jordan Creek midweek. After the waters receded, we have 17 playable holes! Hole 2…at least for saturday, will be skipped and a temporary hole will be inserted between holes 8 and 9.

Throughout Saturday…we may opt to play shorter pins both rounds instead of just the first. Hole 8…has a sippy-hole in the middle of the fairway and i’ve cleared with Big Dog at the PDGA that you can take relief LATERALLY or STRAIGHT BACK.

Many thank yous go out to the folks who kept social media in the loop, organized and performed work parties today!

The Peoples Championship is just that…a celebration of golfers and friends who share the same interest and want to have a great time!

Registration is from 8-930 on Saturday. Generous break between rounds. After round 2…Pizza pies will arrive for player dining and socializing while golfers participate a CTB!
