Tropical Golf 12/05
Takeshi Continues To Roll…!
We are well into the month of May and hopefully the temperatures will start to drop. Of course with it comes more rain, but you can’t have everything. Over at Tropical Golf some wandering souls have started to return and we jumped up to 19 golfers for this Friday at Treasure Hill. Always a tough challenge, there were also threatening skies to worry about.
What can you say about Treasure Hill? It’s a tough but fair course, and if one doesn’t exercise control and discipline within their skill level, you will be heavily penalized. Sometimes you are penalized even using skill management. Playing off the yellow tees, the course was in good condition. Greens are on the slow side, but some greens have so much slope that if above the pin you wish they were sticky. We did have some rain in the “drizzle” category but not enough to stop the Tropical’s, and lasted just a couple holes. With such a testing day, who would rise to the challenge?
A-Flight (0-16): The winner with four strokes to spare was Takeshi Hakozaki (c/h 15) with an excellent 40 points! Takeshi is coming off a most impressive win at the PSC monthly, and he hopes to stay in The Zone for a while longer, funny how the game seems easy sometimes. Next up were Steve Truelove (9) and Gerd Riedler (9) at 36 points off single digits. Good golf!
B-Flight (17+): Flight winner Dick Warberg (21) really used his strokes to perfection with a 5 pointer and a couple 4-point holes to earn a remarkable 38 points. Good management. Next up was “just in time” Bob Britton (18) with 34 points, and the returning Daryl Evans (26) with 31. Never give up!
Best Nines (non-winner): Brian Parish, John Davis
Near pins: Dick Warberg, Brian Parish, Landis Brooks, Steve Truelove
