Congratulations to our 2020 Shelby Rotary 4-Person Scramble Champions — Fred Sanford, Erik Sanford, Stan Sanford, and Dave Wojcicki! They shot a 111 over the two-day event to win the tournament outright. They also made six eagles throughout.
After day one (and a 45 minute rain delay), the flights are as follows:
CHAMPIONSHIP 55-61 (7 teams)
FIRST 62-66 (16 teams)
SECOND 67+ (16 teams)
Day two will consist of placing 1st-3rd in the Championship Flight and 1st-5th in the First and Second Flights.
Congratulations to our 2020 47th Annual Joe Foster Open (Oceana Best Ball) champions — Chris Griffin and Mike DeRuiter! They shot a 135 during the two-day event to earn themselves a three-way tie with Inglis/Genson and 2013 Champions Sanford/Wojcicki; after heading to a playoff, they took home the title by birdieing the second playoff hole. Griffin and DeRuiter were also Champions in 2018.
The weather conditions looked like they could have been a challenge for the tournament with high winds on Saturday and a lightning storm delay Sunday morning, yet the scores told a different story. After day one, our field was competitive with each flight being separated by just three strokes and 21 teams shooting under par. And day two ended in many tiebreakers.
We had seven skins over the weekend — on Saturday, hole #4 Dawson/Shunsky, hole #11 Taylor/Buck, and hole #13 Genson/Inglis, and on Sunday, hole #4 Griffin/DeRuiter, hole #10 Pedler/Brott, and hole #18 Evans/Evans.
It was a windy first day of our 47th annual Oceana Best Ball—Joe Foster Open! We had a field of 105 teams for the two-day, 36-hole, four-ball stroke play tournament.
After day one, the flights are as follows:
CHAMPIONSHIP 68-71 (16 teams)
FIRST 72-75 (19 teams)
SECOND 76-79 (18 teams)
THIRD 80-83 (23 teams)
FOURTH 84+ (29 teams)
Day two will consist of placing 1st-6th in the Championship Flight and 1st-9th in flights First through Fourth.
Congratulations to our 2019 46th Annual Joe Foster Open (aka the Oceana Best Ball) champions — Mike Buckner and Ryan Mouw! They shot 133 during the two-day event to take home the title outright.
We had just 5 skins over the weekend, including four eagles — on Saturday, #4 to Shriver/Payne and #14 to Balkema/Horne, and on Sunday, #1 to Evans/Evans and #5 to Parmalee/Pranger, and on #11 to Morano/Sherburn.
Thank you to all who participated! Congrats to all those who placed in our five flights or won proxy shot prizes. Saturday’s sun made for a beautifully hot day, but the weather flipped on Sunday giving us over 1/4″ of constant rain and challenging course conditions.
Below are the scores from Day 1 of the 2019 Joe Foster Open. Flights are as listed (CHAMP 65-70, FIRST 71-75, SECOND 76-79, THIRD 80-84, FOURTH 85+) as we continue tomorrow for the final Day 2!
Thank you to all who participated this year in this event that helps support our course! All proceeds go right back to fund improvements needed for the grounds. The weather was beautiful for this Saturday event, sunny and high of 85 degrees with just a bit of a breeze.
