We had another two great rounds, as Chandler Shearer and Colton Buffie both recorded 70. Other Flight 1 gross winners were Brandt Moretto (77), Mike Buffie (81) and Bill Barrett (82). On the net side of Flight 1 was Joe Henri (71), Murry Haukeness (71), Blake Frechette (72), Preben Rasmussen (73) and Ted Stewart (75).

The gross winners of Flight 2 were Terry Rai (79), Glen Trask (79), Justin Sketsch (81), Darcy Haggard (84) and Jaques Giovetti (85). On the net side was Jim Rhodes (66), Wayne Johnstone (66), Mike Doucette (70), Kyle West (73) and Fred Fredrickson (73). Flight 3 gross winners were Cliff O’Laney (89) and Dennis Frykas (91) and net winners were Brian Hill (71) and Bill Bjornson (76).

The closest to the pin winners are Terry Rai on No. 2, Kyle West on No. 4, Brian Hill on No. 13 and James Weening on No. 17. The charity closest to the pin on No. 7 was won by Cal Davies, who collects $52. All prizes may be picked up from the Pro Shop.

Next Sunday, June 11, as it is just a week before the men’s West Coast Amateur, we will be having an individual event best gross and best net. This will give everyone a chance to sharpen up their game before the big tournament. This competition is sponsored by Boomerangs Cafe.
