Pick Six Competition Ends in Tight Battles in Both Flights

By Rick Colvin

Enjoying beautiful fall weather, the teams atop both flights eked out narrow victories in a highly competitive Pick Six LMGA outing on September 30 on the Deer Creek Course.

The team of Charlie Bradford, David Brown, John Landuyt, and Rich Matos came in at 18-under to win the 1st Flight by a single point over two teams tied at 17-under. Bruce Bertkau, Sonny Brownlee, Jack Welch and Edgar Yu took second in a cardoff with Bruce Decker, David Martin, Mark Monson, and Scott Stockslager.

Only five strokes separated first and last place in the 8-team 1st Flight field.

In the 2nd Flight, the team of Jay Carey, Dan Malachuk, Mike Staman, and Steve Thomas shot a net 16-under and won in a cardoff with the team of Herb Gallagher, Randy Gladden, Tom Richards, and John Soron. One stroke off the lead, the team of Bob Gardner, Lee Howard, Jim Shirley, and Mark Witbeck took third after a cardoff with Nathan Alexander, David Evans, John Evans, and Phil Redmond pushed the latter team out of the money.

The nine teams in the 2nd flight were separated by only four strokes.
