Wednesday, Jan. 30, Phoenix – Stableford
After Monday’s game at Emerald was cancelled due to the rain, we moved onto Phoenix today and the weather looked OK’ish as we arrived. There were a few spots of rain on the back nine but for the most part it was a fine day for golf.
There were ten groups out in three flights with the cut at 9-15, 16-21 and 22+, and a ladies division as well.
In the men’s divisions there were two 41 point scores winning the first and second divisions and a 38-pointer in division 1 today that did not even make the podium; he wasn’t a happy chappy.
1st Lindsay Phillips 41pts
2nd Mike Chatt 40pts
3rd Chris Voller 39pts
1st Randy Flello 41pts
