Five Star FWGA Mid Am
The deadline for the Mid Am entry is this Thurs. 5/16 at 12:00 pm. This is a 2-man 36 hole, 1 day event w/ the first 18 holes being best ball, shot gun start @ 8:00 am, followed by lunch (incl. w/ entry fee) then a 2-man scramble starting @ 1:30. This is sure to be a fun and great event!
Five Star Distributing is the Sponsor of this event. Thank you Five Star. As is now customary w/ a sponsored event, the purse grows significantly and we are increasing the payouts from 25% to 30% of the field. This event is limited to the first 30 teams signed up. Sign up today, don't wait until the last minute and get put on the waiting list!! Under a full field scenario, the top 10 teams will get paid!
The website indicates that each person is to sign up individually. However, there appears to be an occasional glitch w/ the registration process for this event. If for some reason you are unable to sign up, or can sign up but the system won't take your payment, we are allowing you to bring cash or a check to the event. In addition to this, YOU MUST INDICATE VIA EMAIL (under the contact us link) that you were not able to submit payment on line and are still participating in the event. This error is typically happening when the 1st player registers and identifies his playing partner, then the partner tries to sign up and pay as well - but gets the error. BlueGolf is trying to resolve this issue for us.
With all that said, don't let this be the reason of nonparticipation. Contact me as mentioned above if you have issues.
Thanks, Ron Schmucker
FWGA Southern Open
Congratulations to Scott Pieri for his dominating win at the FWGA Southern Open. While most of the field struggled over the two days, Scott shot 69,69 for yet another impressive win. Aaron Walters finished 2nd, Justin Bell 3rd, Josh Neal 4th and BJ Hayden and DJ Fisher tied for 5th.
Congrats also to BJ Hayden for his hole in one on the par 3 third hole at Donald Ross on Sat!
Special thanks to the staff and superintendents of both Donald Ross and Brookwood for hosting the FWGA Southern Open. Both courses were in fantastic condition! With sunny skies and finally a warm windy breeze, each venue proved to be a great test of golf to begin the 2013 stroke event series!
By virtue of a Top 10 finish, the following earned an exemption into the 2013 FWGA City Tournament: DJ Fisher (5th), Tom Botteron (7th) and Kevin Handley (10th). Congratulations!
