SIERRA LAKES HIGHLIGHTS

Now we all know why Sierra lakes is Javier Chavez’s favorite course.  It was like a country club; facilities, fairways and greens all perfect.  Most of us are not use to hitting off of perfect lies and putting on pure greens.   Javier, after buying Clinton Cox’s old clubs in the parking lot 15 minutes before he teed off, holed out his 120 yard approach shot for an eagle 2 on the opening par 4 hole.   Then he makes a birdie 3 on the next hole, but after too much celebrating, dancing, and jumping around he got a back spasm on hole # 3’s tee box and sliced his drive out of bounds.  We all must remember we are not 20 anymore… let’s celebrate with a low 5 or fist bump instead, to prevent more injuries, also no jogging in parking lots even if you are “running late” (hope all is well Wallace.)   Javier got his 2nd eagle of the day on hole # 15 the par 5, as he once again hole out from the fairway -140 yards for a 3.  He finished 2nd gross with an 83, 3 gross skins, 1 net skin, and tied for low putts on the day with 31.  The low gross of the day was shot by the once again “Jimbomatic” his gross 71 (-1) wins first gross in A flight, tied for low putts, long drive regular and 2 of his 4 birds held up for a gross skin.  Mark Hardin shot the 2nd lowest gross score of the day (81) winning him first gross in the B flight.  Craig Cessna shot the low net of the day (60) and was the only C flightier to shot in the 80’s as his 87 wins him First place gross in the C flight and his bird on # 11 gave him a net skin.  For complete low gross / low net results see our web site at www.birchhillsmensgolfclub.com

SCGA away net rankings- This is another contest we run for the best net player on away course.  SCGA has a 2 man best ball net tournament for all Clubs.  Our club will pay for 2 players to represent us in this tournament later in the year.  To qualify your index has to be 18.4 or lower, you need to play in at least 4 away tournament, your 4 best away net scores will be use and the player with the lowest combined scores will be our champ and can pick anyone in the top 10 who qualified to be his partner.  Fermin Andres is leading the pack with a combine -6 after 2 tourneys.  Bouzos, Mullican, Cox, Mansfield, Hardin, M. and Dobashi are all tied with -2.
