The Winter Blast Should Have Been Called the Spring Fling with Temps Reaching 70 Degrees! - Dec 16th, 2015
70 degrees on the day of the Winter Blast was just nuts, but no complaints from this Arizona boy!
The Christian County Family Crisis Center will be given a check for $910 plus a lot of food and cleaning supplies. The CCFCC said that cleaning wipes were one of the the most needed items. With he huge donation from Chad and several other players, the need was definitely filled for a few months!
The break down for the above $910 raised:
24 players paid the $5 extra = $120
45 bought 1st round $5 mulligans = $225
43 bought 2nd round $5 mulligans = $215
Raffle/straight donation made $350
Along with the very successful fund raising for the CCFCC, the tournament was fun as well. We were blessed with an absolutely gorgeous day as 49 Players competed in the Winter Blast. We had 8 divisions that included: Pro, Pro Women, Advanced, Advanced Master, Intermediate, Intermediate Women, Recreational, and Juniors.
The over all champion shooting a perfect 18 down on the 1st round and a 12 down in the second (-30 for the day, was Josiah Durham. I was fortunate to watch as Josiah throw a perfect front 9 (no mulligans used) combining 8 perfect parked drives and one incredible down hill putt from 50+. His big lead allowed him to keep 3 strokes ahead of Jeff Renner who made a run in the second round.
Other winners included Brandy Monnahan (102) by one stroke over Jamie Helton (Women's Open), Jonathan Stokes turned in an 87 in the Advanced division that was 2 better than Josh Drecker and 3 better than Chris Cleland, Chris Wheat took down the Adv Master Division with a 98 which was two better than George Eudy and Tad Odum who were both hot on his tail, Don Fite prevailed in the Int division carding a 93which was 2 better than Tadge Kavanaugh and 3 better than Craig Goldsberry (who shot a remarkable 43 first round), Staci was the only Int woman and shot 123, Todd Anderson had a comfortable 4 stroke win over Chris Ryan and Blaise Horesman with a score of 98, and the only Junior Blake Pendegrass finished at 134. Congratulations to all for finishing on top.
There were a few other high lights today as well. 10 Turkeys and 4 hams were given away in the CTP Turkey Trot. The biggest winner of the day was Chris Cleland who slammed an Ace on hole 5 to capture the money in both the tourney Ace Pot and the rolling Monkey Tag Ace pot which cleared him a cool $400 Christmas shopping bonus! If you missed this event, you missed a fun one. See you next time!
On behalf of the CCFCC: to all of you who made this happen thank you for your continued support. My prayer is for all of you may be blessed for your contributions!!
