The team of Ted Bumsted, Grant Buchanan, Mike Morris and Jack Welch shot an incredible 19-under to win the 1st Flight of the Dec. 2 “Red, White, and Yellow” game on the Deer Creek course. The team’s 53 bested the second-place team of Dave Creasy, David Evans, Steve Thomas, and Paul Warhola by three strokes. Coming in third at 12-under was the team of Lee Howard, Steve Nazaruk, Phil Redmond, and Tom Stephens.
The competition format required teams to count three net balls on holes with a front, or red, pin placement; two balls on white, or middle, pins; and one ball on yellow, or back, pins.
The 2nd Flight results were closer. The team of Larry Batanian, Rick Cricenti, Frank Schepis, and Jon Sweet came out on top, shooting a 16-under 56. Taking second, one stroke back, was the team of John Bellucci, Dan Malachuk, Ed O’Donnell, and Steve Voss. The team of Dave Angell, Pat Beringer, Bret Hardy, and Mark Monson came in third, with a 58.
Winning skins were Mike Allen and Jack Welch.
