Monday, Nov. 19, Pattavia – Stableford

There was nobody in front today and our five groups teed off 30 minutes ahead of schedule. The greens here normally are very slick but with a very thick grain here today it still was a tough test.

Neil Gamble posted the best score of the day, 38 points, to win division 1 ahead of Bob Comartin in second one point behind. Per Forsberg, with a 17/15/15 back nine countback, beat Tim Hake and Dennis Scougall to take third place.

Gil Phillips was the winner in division 2 with 36 points, Steve Harris came second on 35 and Bill Kana was third with 29.

Near pins went to (Div 1) Neil Gamble, Tim Hake and Ron Miller (2), and (Div 2) Alan Bissell and Bill Kana (2).

Dave Chan birdied the fourth for the only ‘2’ in division 1 and there were two rollovers in division 2.
