The main focus this month is on one of the premier events of our year, The Ironwood Cup Tournament.
The overall winner is Mike Woldt. He also won the 1st flight with a total three day score of 177 followed by Bill Beltz (181) and Mark Saylor (185). Flight 2 was won by Joe Burke (180) followed by John Skoworn (183) and Robert Love (188). Mario del Col topped Flight 3 with Joe Rizzi (184) in second and Bernie Duggan (187) in third. The 4th Flight winner was Dan Hewitt (184), with Dick Rathburn (185) coming in second and Roger Nordin (186) third. The 5th Flight saw John Rutt (185) take top honors with Frank Gaudioso (188) taking second place and Joe Mandour(190) third. The 6th Flight was won by Joe Klouda (185), Milt Sharpe (194) in second and Maurice Boudin (204) in 3rd place. After the final morning and afternoon rounds were completed, free beer and pizza was provided to all participants. The 19th hole celebration seemed to be enjoyed by all.
The annual Member/Guest Tournament on February 17 had a full field of participants and results will be reported in next month’s article.
The final major event of the season, The Club Championship will be played on March 3, 10 and 17. This year there will be a new flight, The Super Senior light for members 75 years of age and older. The tournament is a gross score event and signup sheets are in the scorer’s room.
For those who know Sun Lakes resident and ex-IMGA member Jack Holder, you probably know that he was a highly decorated veteran of WWII. He now has a book published that follows his war exploits from Pearl Harbor, to Midway, to Guadalcanal in the Pacific theater to the English Channel. The book, entitled Adrenalin, Excitement, and Fear promises to be a page turner.
In closing, I understand that Ed Rosenzweig is in Chandler Hospital and is expected to be there for several weeks for treatment. I’m sure that he would enjoy any cards sent to him.
