ICEBREAKER @ Painted Dunes Desert Golf Course

Champ Flight - With these players being the first ones out, we were unsure how the weather would effect this group. At the turn we had 4 players within 4 shots of each other. And having to play in the snow was no easy matter. But once everyone was in the clubhouse getting warm we had a champion. Crispin Fuentes would shot a 75 (+3) and beat Mark Nash by 5 shots for his FIRST VICTORY on tour!!!!!

A Flight - We were going to have a new champion for the 2019 season with Scott Cain not being able to make the event. Who would be victorious during the Battle of Cold for the A Flight. Another tight race after 9 holes, and it would stay tight all the way through the final 9 holes. Tyler Solem would shoot an 82 (+10) and win by 3 shots over Glenn Gibson.

B Flight - We had a battle all day with all the players in the B Flight. Once again at the turn we had 6 out of 8 of the players within 3 strokes of each other. But one of the players out of the 6 was not going to give up without a fight. Amit Lopes would shoot a 50 in the front, but would then shoot a 43 in the back to claim his spot in a tie for first place. Amit would come into the club house excited to go heads up with Greg Bennett for the Victory. They would play a 2 hole playoff but Greg Bennett would hit a long putt for birdie to claim his first victory of the season.

C Flight  - Stop me if you have heard this again but Marco Arras would have another solid round of golf. Chris Rocha would give him a scare especially with a terrific start to his back 9. But once again Marco would be victorious and once again the chats rained down on him to move up to B Flight. Marco was able to get the 3 straight championships. His trophy case is starting to get full fast.

D Flight - Chris Bowman would come out with vengeance after his playoff loss at NMSU. He would shoot a consistent 49-48 for his round. John Vasquez would not give up with out a fight but it wasn't enough to claim the victory. Chris would win by 3 strokes to claim his FIRST VICTORY on tour!!!!!
