The 2nd Gunn Park Open - Sep 18th, 2022

The 2nd Gunn Park Open Recap

This past Saturday 68 players made there way to Ft. Scott Kansas for The 2nd Gunn Park Open. A big shout out of thanks to Danny Craig for his efforts in making this happen. His dedication and advocating to the city has paid off and we all thank you for your efforts. We also appreciate the course prep work and putting out the signs and water on the course. It’s a lot of work, thank you again! To the City of Ft. Scott we want to thank you as well for funding this event. Looking forward to next year already.

The day started with nearly perfect weather. It was cool with a gentle breeze when players arrived and checked in. I’m sure I wasn’t alone, in thinking that the weather folks would be wrong as I saw the high temps were going to reach the 90’s. The first round temperature were mild with just a little breeze. Mother Nature had a bit of bipolar as the second round turned hot, as if someone just flipped a switch to Blazin’. The locals said they hadn’t had much wind there lately, but the Kansas winds we all know about showed up in the second round to make us feel at home. The tournament definitely finished a scorcher.

The first round played pretty quick. We started at 9:00, and everyone broke for lunch and were back playing at 1:00. The rounds went smoothly. There was an Ace hit by Chris Stebbins who enjoyed a little pay day.

There were eight divisions. Congratulations to all who cashed, and to all the winners Awesome Job:
