FROM THE WINNER'S CIRCLE with Bobby Risbourg

“PLAYOFFS?  Are you kidding me, PLAYOFFS?”  Well, we had two of them on Saturday at Beaver Creek.  It was South Louisiana tournament golf at its best!

Champ Flight: Mick Huffman is beginning to become very familiar with the winners circle.  Mick won the North tour’s first major about a month ago and followed that up with a second place finish at Links on the Bayou, another North tour event.  On Saturday, Mick collected his first victory of the season on the South tour firing a blistering round of 69 on the Beaver Creek layout.  “I struggled hitting greens on the first two holes, but then got hot and made birdies on 8, 9, 11, 13 and 14.  I also left an eagle short on 13”, explained Huffman.  Congratulations Mick on being the Champ Flight Beaver Creek Champion!

A Flight: The A Flight was won by a newcomer to the tour in 2014, Mike Mouret.  Mike carded a solid 74 in route to his first victory on tour.  “I drove the ball really well, straight down the middle every time.  I didn’t have a lot of good birdie putt looks, but I was solid on all of my par putts”, explained Mike.  This is Mike’s first year on tour and only his second event ever.  Very impressive!

B Flight: Our B Flight Champ for 2014 is Charlie Buller.  Charlie is a 3-year tour member and the Beaver Creek tournament was his first victory.  Charlie played the round of his life with a spectacular 1 over par, 73!  To give you an idea of how good Charlie played, consider this:  In the first event of the year at The Farm, Charlie shot a forgettable 98 to finish last in the B Flight.  I asked Charlie about his worst to first performance; “After my poor showing at the Farm, I decided to switch iron sets.  I dumped my AP2’s and put some Cobras in my bag.  I parred all the par 3’s and drove the ball well with both my driver and 3 wood.  What ultimately did it for me was making two long putts on 17 and 18 with 17 for par and 18 for birdie, which turned out to be the winning shots.”  Great Job Charlie and welcome to the A Flight.

C Flight: WOW, what a great battle for the C Flight championship!  Depp Cheramie and Nolan Lemaire both carded very solid 84’s to tie for first place.  The two then headed to the first tee for a sudden death playoff.  This is how it unfolded:  Nolan teed off first and hit a nice drive down the right side.  Depp followed with a beautifully struck cut shot to the middle of the fairway.  From 160 yards out, Nolan hit an iron shot just short and right of the green.  Not to be out done, Depp stuck his approach shot on the front part of the green, about 30 feet from the hole.  The first miscue then occurred as Nolan topped a short chip shot, but then put the ball to within 10 feet on his second chip.  All Depp had to do was two-putt for the win and that’s exactly what he did.  Depp is no stranger to winning, having previously won twice on the Senior Tour.  This was his first win since 2012 at Atchafalaya GC on the regular tour.  “Today I drove and putted it well, but also lady luck was smiling at me all day.  I almost made a hole-in-one on 17 and then I made a 15-footer on 18”, beamed an excited Cheramie.  Awesome win Depp.

D Flight: Just when you thought things could not get any more exciting on the gorgeous day for golf, the D Flight had three guys tied for first and thus a 3-man playoff loomed.  Firing 88’s, were Greg Dennison, Cedric Richman and James Tate.  The exciting 3-man playoff did not lack for drama:  Greg teed off first and hit a pretty drive right down the middle.  Cedric was up next and proceeded to pull his drive left and out of bounds.  He teed it up again and found the fairway bunker.  James striped his driver right down the middle coming to rest about 175 yards from the flag.    He then topped his next shot, but, in doing so, managed to run it up to about 85 yards of the green.    Greg followed with a well struck iron shot that found the greenside bunker, pin high.  Cedric then took two shots to position his ball 10’ from the cup.  Greg did the best he could with a tricky bunker lie, and managed to get his ball within 8’ of the hole in 2 shots.  Then, the man of the hour, James Tate, hit a pretty little bump and run to within 15’ of the hole and processed to calmly sink the winning putt in dramatic fashion.  James had this to say about what had just happened, “I love it man, I just love it!  My third shot was good, but my putt was even better.  I can’t wait to tell my wife and friends.”  Isn’t that what it’s all about?  This is James’ first year on tour and only his second event.  I’m sure there will be more to come.
