Poppy Ridge Stableford
September 26, 2015

Just like last year's event at Poppy Ridge we hit a typical September weather pattern in the Bay Area (heat) and played Stableford with some interesting results.  The 31 intrepid golfers who competed were treated to temperatures in the low 90's with only a gentle breeze to keep things cool.  Staying hydrated was a major concern with plenty of fluids consumed during and after the competition. 

In the First Flight, Jack Simpson continued his stellar play with a 77 (net 64) and a +18 in the Stableford scoring system to take the low net. Brad Miller was second at +11 after surviving a triple bogey on the 17th hole.  John Frykland played consistently with nine 4's, eight 5's and only one 6 for a +8 and third place.

Despite a wobbly back nine, Second Flight low net went to Greg Val with a net 68 and +14 points.  Ray Coler also wobbled on the back nine but survived the test with a net 71 and +10 points.  Keith Arends took third with two consistent nines and a net 71 for +8 points

In the Third Flight, Jack Woods shot a net 73 that gave him +6 points for first place.  Tracy Powell was second at +5 despite shooting a net score one shot better than Jack.  Third Place was divided between Darien Arends, John Binns and Chuck Pickett all at +2.

The webmaster was put to work as tournament director for this event so there was no time for pictures while he entered the scores and tallied up the results.

Congratulations to the winners.
