GolfWeek Members Invitational @ Horizon GC

Champ Flight - What a tight race the Champ Flight had all day long. Going into the turn 3 of the members were tied at 41. And for the next 9 holes it was a back and forth match between those 3 players. Once all 18 holes were finished we had a tie at 76. With only 1 hole needed Edward Geernaert would beat Billy Hinojos and take his first victory on tour.

A Flight - Tyler Solem would hold the lead at the turn shooting a 39 and leading by 2 strokes. But a consistent back nine with scores of 8 holes with 4 strokes, Rafael Torres would grind his way back. He would take the lead and win the event by 2 strokes shooting an 78 for his day. It was nice to see Rafael back on tour and playing some stellar golf in this flight.

B Flight - Another flight to keep an eye on all day as Amit Lopes and Gaudencio Pavia would battle it out all day. Sammy Pavia didn't want to be left out as he also became part of the battle at the turn. But with a couple of big mistakes down the stretch both Amit and Sammy would fall out of contention. That would leave Gaudencio all alone at the top and winning with a final +12 (82).

C Flight  - Nathan Markette came into the event ready to show this flight what he is made of. with a solid 43 he would lead by 2 strokes. But everyone in this flight was ready for the challenge. Marco Viramontes and Pedro Quintero would challenge Nathan throughout the back 9 but could only get within 3 strokes of him. Nathan would take the victory shooting a +18 (88).

D Flight - Another solid turnout for this flight and it was anyones event to win. At the turn everyone was evenly matched except for Craig Christianson who was leading by 3 strokes. John Vasquez and Edward Papke were coming for Craig and didn't want him to win another event. But Craig seems to have ice in his veins because he would keep his composure and hold off those 2 competitors for another victory shooting a +20 (90).
