The start of the 2021 SWSGA got a mulligan and we used it to our advantage. With the rain out of our Arrowhead event in January, we were able to reschedule for February 15th and what a great event it was. 6 strokes separated the first 9 teams in the 1-gross, 2-net format. The all amateur team of Frank Ellenburg, Scott Stevens, Mark Joswick and Bill Santistevan tied with a score of 202 with Professional Gerry Norquist, Amateurs Terry Ruzzo, Julian Tatka and Paul Ruth. The two winners beat 22 other teams. There was only 1 score under par and that was Professional Greg Harmon who shot a fine 3-under par 69. There were 4 scores of 72, Jim Carter, Ralph West, Jeff Lane and Frank Ellenburg. There were no gross skins while there were 3 net skins worth $106 each. Kirk Allison cashed in on #1, Rick Danis on #10 and Greg Harmon hit the pay window again with his 3 on #16.

Murphy's Law Irish Pub Closest to the Pin competition.
Our sharpshooters receive an eGift card from Brad Ingarfield and Murphy's Law along with 1/2 dozen of Titleist Pro V1's. John Landy did the trick on #3, Barry Conser on #7, Mark Sporlarich on #11 and Greg Harmon AGAIN hit the pay window on #15. Congratulations to our winners.

Phil Kerr's CardinaleWay Mazda was our beverage sponsor, thank you Phil for your continued support!!

Two events in successive weeks was a first for the SWSGA and it felt like we were on tour. The weather was perfect at Lone Tree G.C. and the play was stellar. One team holed 3 shots from the fairway, now that is some accuracy.
Professional Barry Conser led all scorers and his team with a sizzling 64!! Barry's team of Jack Hailey, Mark Joswick (back to back winner) and Michael Healey had a 2 stroke victory over Professional guest John Franciso and Amateurs Greg Killian, Curt Cranmer and Ben Clement in the 1-gross, 2-net format. 10 strokes separated the top 11 teams. The 26 teams was the largest field in over a year and since Covid emerged. Thank you to all the players who have continued to support our organization.

Along with Barry's 64, there were 5 scores of 68, Professionals John Francisco, Gerry Norquist, Greg Harmon and Amateurs Don Krider and Michael Healey.
There were 3 gross skins, Rick Carosone on #1, Randy Wittig on #9 and John Dodd on #18. Each was worth $$113. There were 4 net skins worth $85. Rick Carosone on #1, Mick McKenzie on #4, Dale Shemelya on #17 and John Dodd on #18.

Murphy's Law Irish Pub Closest to the Pin competition.
The winners will receive an eGift card from Brad Ingarfield and Murphy's Law along with 1/2 dozen of Titleist Pro V1's. Jon Brockman on #2, Greg Harmon (again) on #8, Gary Dion on #12 and Thomas Roos on #14. Congratulations to our winners.

Founders Championship
Several players are off to hot starts in the Founders Championship Player of the Year race. Amateur Julian Tatka has a slim 2 point lead over Mark Joswick and Thomas Roos, 33 - 35. In the Professional side, Basrry Conser and Ralph West are tied at 33 points, 7 more than last year's champ Gerry Norquist. The top 72 Ams and 24 pros make it to the Championship in January. There is plenty of time to move up the list.

A complete list of the prizes won can be found on the schedule page next to the appropriate event.

Thank you to everyone that brought their found golf balls. Gerry Norquist will need a bigger trunk to transport those lost treasures. Please continue to bring those found balls with you to the events. They go to a great cause, Phoenix Children's Hospital.
