Event 3: Partner Best Ball, Both 3s and 5s RESULTS

GREAT DAY EVERYONE! Of course I say this facetiously as we had several record HIGH scores (Including me). Will keep this in mind when scheduling 2016’s season as taking a whole month off (October) is just too much for this group!

Congratulations (again) to the luckiest person in this group, Danny Brown, for again getting paired up with a top 3 low net.

Event Winners: Danny Brown and Ryan Dobson (BOTH due for a SEVERE handicap adjustment)
