Summer Showdown Major @ Butterfield Trail GC

Champ Flight - Leading off the tee times the Champ Flight guys were ready to set the pace. Anyone could win with the conditions we had. George and Daniel would battle throughout the day. Daniel would keep it close for a while, but George had other plans for the day. With the second lowest round of the day George would claim the victory shooting a 78 and winning by 6 strokes.

A Flight - Our biggest turn out for this flight had 2 guest and some regulars all challenging Scott Cain for a chance to be victorious. Scott has yet to lose an event that he has played in this season. Scott would make the turn -3 and would finish the round -1 for another victory. Will Scott continue to keep the streak alive or will he move up and challenge the Champ Flight members for victory?

B Flight - Our biggest flight as usual left nothing out of the ordinary. At the turn 7 players were within 3 strokes of each other. It was a tight race throughout the day, and with the winds picking up anything could happen. With 2 hole left it was looking like we would have another playoff in the B Flight. But with a triple on the last hole there was no playoff needed. Don Nance would take second place by a scorecard playoff with Greg Bennett. And once again Gaudencio Pavia would claim victory, shooting a 79 and winning by 3 strokes.

C Flight  - All the players in this event were equally matched and anyone of the 5 could win this event. Chris Rocha would start off the day strong with a 40 thru 9 holes. He would have a 5 stroke lead over James Enriquez. But for the next 4 holes Chris would struggle and James would take advantage of the mistakes made by Chris. At one point both were tied for the lead and plenty of holes left to play. Going into 18 Chris would not let the temptation of going for the green in 2, and he kept his eyes on the prize. Leading by 1 stroke Chris would lay up and take his Par. James needed a birdie to have a playoff but would also card a Par giving the victory to Chris. That would be his first victory on tour this year with his final score of 87. Is the momentum shifting?

D Flight - With 8 players in the D Flight, they would have their biggest field of the season. Craig Christianson would come in strong winning the last couple of events. But just like any other day anyone could win any event. Edward Papke would finally be healed from an injury he had and is excited to finally start his season. Edward would take a 4 stroke lead at the turn. Thomas Christianson would grind all day but would not have enough to over take Edward. Shooting a 87 for the day Edward would take his first victory of the season. We can't wait to see the battles that will happen within this flight for the rest of the season.
