The weather offered perfect Arizona sunshine with temps in the 80s. All visitors from the North enjoyed getting away from winter’s cold and getting out to play in the sun. And a Hole-In-One was accomplished by Ken Appletree from Prescott, Ariz. on hole No. 8. This was only Ken’s second time playing hickory shafted authentic golf clubs … Congrats!
Jim Von Lossow of Seatle, Wash., was our overall Tournament Champion, shooting a fine 72 / 79, with Jimmy Hill, of Tulare, Calif. as our runner up. Jimmy was close on his heals with 76 / 76. Von Lossow’s 4-shot lead into day-two was short lived as Hill chipped away at the lead with consistent shot making, only to be edged by one stroke by Von Lossow down the final holes.
Our Senior winner was Jeff Simonson of Sun City West, who shot 79 / 78. The New-To-Hickory Division winner was Tom Quinn, also of Sun City West, with 80 / 81. Our Super Senior Division was won by Paul Biocini of Valley Springs, Calif., with 74 / 73. Our Ladies Division was won by Donna Richmond of Sun City West, with consistent rounds of 92 / 90.
