The hottest rounds of the day came from the MP40 division by Keo Sabengsy (The Snake Tamer) and Dasun Keylor who both shot -10 in their second round! Keo came out on top taking 1st place in his division and best score overall of the day!

In MA3, Ian Boyer and Jacob Woolston needed an extra hole to decide 1st place. Ian Boyer nearly aced his tee shot just narrowly missing hole 1. Ian took the win with a solid birdie tap in for the win!

In MA50 Mike Abbott and Darrin Dodson also required an additional hole to decide 1st place. An unfortunate skip landed Darrin Dodson in OB trouble. Mike Abbott took the victory with a tap in bogie.

Congratulations to our CTP winners:
