Champ Flight - For the first event of the season, we had a good mix of familiar faces and new faces for this flight. At the turn, it was a tight race with the leader having a couple stroke lead over the field. Coming down the stretch, there was some great golf that was played and we would see our first under par round of the season. Scott Roser would come in with a -2 (70) and take the Kickoff Classic victory. New Member, HB Kim, would come in second with a +2 (74), and new member,Zach Adams, rounding it out for third with a +4 (76).
A Flight - Having one of their biggest fields we’ve ever seen, we saw a lot of new and familiar facesas well. At the turn, we had one player leading by one stroke with a 5 way tie for second. There was some solid play at the end and one player almost made a comeback! However, it wasn’t enough and we had a champion outright. New Member, Trey Scallions, would take his first victory on tour with a +3 (75). Rick Silva would eventually take second with a +4 (76), and rounding out the group in third would be new member, Nick Cuevas, with a +6 (78).
B Flight - Another great showing for this flight with most of the players having the ability to take the victory. One player in particular came out with only one thing in mind, and that was to take thevictory. With a commanding lead at the turn and consistent scores, we would have a clear champion. New Member, Mario Villa, would come out and shoot +5 (77) to take his first victory on tour and a promotion to A Flight. Gaudencio Pavia would take second with a scorecard playoff, and Bill Blackford would take third with both having a +13 (85).
C Flight - With the biggest field of the day it was going to be a fun time for all players involved. At the turn, we had half the field within 2 strokes of the leader. Then with 3 holes to go, we had a six way tie for first place. With a possibility for our first playoff of the season, all eyes were on the Live Scoring to see what happens. Once all the dust settled we had a champion and a well deserved one at that. Greg Bennett would take the victory with a +14 (86) and also a promotion to B Flight. Jimmy Enriquez would take second with a +15 (87). With 5 players turning in a +16 (88), we would go to a scorecard playoff to determine third to fifth place.
