Little Big Show Recap and Marshall Open is August 16th...Register Now! - Aug 4th, 2014
The Little Big Show held at North Morse Park in Neosho, MO on August 2nd was a small but fun tournament. There were a few more players this year than last with 53 in attendance. The weather was moderately hot with very little wind. Definitely a beautiful day for golf. The first round was played on the original course design that was done by Cody Crocker several years ago (Miss You Cody!). Temporary baskets were set up on the original shorter hole positions on 14, 17, and 18. This made for a fun change and a chance for a few more birdie opportunities.
After seeing the scores and hearing players talk in the different divisions, it was evident all but one division was close. In the Recreational Division, Blair Furstenberg came back from a three stroke deficit to win by two over Chris Haynes (Great Job Blair). In the Intermediate Division, Neal Brooks and Braden Eads battled to the end in a one stroke difference. Neal took down the top spot (Kudos Neal!). Another note worthy point out was Andrea Meyers played against the boys and finished tied for 6th out of 14! The Advanced Division was a huge battle with a tie for 1st and only 2 strokes separating the 3rd and 4th places. Derek Norris (4th shot a 108), William Marshall (3rd shot a 107), and Aaron Cook and Chad Fisk both shot 106 that forced a 6 hole sudden death play off. Congratulations to both of you and a big hats off to Chad Fisk for his “Back to Back” LBS Advanced Champion Title! The only division that was not close was the Open division. Chris Eads of Ft. Smith, AR, devoured the course and the field turning in a 91 (8 strokes better than Dasun Keylers 2nd place score)! Absolutely an amazing two rounds. Congratulations on the THUMPING Chris... Great Job!
