Stevens & Holloway Win Fall Shootout
Charlie Stevens and Mike Holloway win the Fall Shootout, again.
Windy conditions did not bother the 1st round leaders as they posted a day's best 65. Stevens started the round with an eagle at #1 and birdie on #6. Holloway followed with a 40 foot birdie putt on #7. The pair's only hiccup was a bogey at #9, taking a 2-shot lead into the back
nine. Birdies at #10, #11, #13, and
the final nail in the coffin at #16
earned them their 3rd consecutive
Fall Shootout victory.
Brian Petri and Nick Museousky
won the 1st flight, shooting a two
round total of 5 under 137.
Congratulations to the victors and
thank you to all participants for
playing this year!
