a clear and warm day, Alta Mesa Golf Club welcomed the SWSGA's 88
players to a well conditioned course right after overseeding.
day was highlighted by new member Tim Smith who aced the Alta Mesa 12th
hole. Tim also was closest on #5. His sharp shooting earned him $906 in
the hole in one pot along with the only gross skin of $304 and half the
net pot for another $152. Quite a day!!! The other CTP's were earned by
Brian Pavlet on #7 and Tim Blau on #17. This is the first Closest to
the pin contest since the spring and it was great to have Murphy's Law
Irish pub sponsoring this fun competition. The other half of the net
skin pot was won by Julian Tatka on #6.
Randy Wittig led all scorers along with his team of Amateurs with a 66.
Randy's team consisted of Amateurs Jeff Goettsche, Rich Danis and Jim
Howie who finished 3 shots clear of 2nd place with a fine 123 in the 1
gross, 1 net format. It took a score of 131 to make the prize list.
Professional Gerry Norquist and Amateur Ray Plewa were 2 shots back with
68's. It took a score of 72 to cash in the individual cash game and net
