Eight strokes separated first and last place in the 1st Flight while the spread was nine strokes in the 2nd Flight April 14 in a Pick Six scramble competition on the Magnolia course.
It took a team score in the 50s to be in the money in the 1st Flight; in the 2nd Flight, scores in the low 60s were good enough to put a team on the winners’ platform.
The team of John Bellucci, Kevin Brandon, Warren Lewis and Peter Quin had the low round of the day, shooting a 14-under 58 to win the 1st Flight. In second, shooting 59, was the team of Sonny Brownlee, Ed O’Donnell, Scott Stockslager, and Jack Welch; the team of Brian Duffy, Andy Eastwood, Rich Matos, and Jeff Nibley also shot 59, but came in third after a card-off comparison of scores.
In the 2nd Flight, the team of Phil Redmond, Don Snyder, Steve Voss, and Paul Warhola beat the field by shooting a 61; tied at 63 was the team of Bill Brunton, Rick Colvin, Charles Murphy, and Mark Witbeck and the team of Robert Linnett, Ken May, Gary Mehes, and Greg Snyder. But the Brunton et. al. team came in 2nd after comparing cards.
