Las Positas - ILN
March 25, 2017

Las Positas in Livermore is one of our more popular places to visit for a tournament.  Typically we do so during a warmer time of the year when the temperatures are in the 80's and the course is dry.  On this trip, the thermometer registered in the mid 60's and the course was wet from the steady onslought of storms we've experienced this year.  There was lots of casual water and several areas of ground under repair from some minor flooding.  The players slogged through it all and posted scores a few strokes higher than ususal for the course.

First Flight low gross went to Dave Bridgman with a nice 82.  John Frykland, who last won an event in February 2016, took low net honors with a 71 in a card playoff with Buzz Ogren.  Buzz's finish took him to a familiar spot at the top of the TOC leader board.  Other top spots went to Stephen Suleski, Brad Miller and William Wei who won here last year.

In the Second Flight, guest Andy Larson took the low net title which included the prize money but not the TOC points.  Gary Pruitt shot the low score of the day with a 67 to win low net honors.  John Binns matched the winning score in the First Flight to take second with Marsh Armstrong, Lou Sehl and Chuck Pickett rounding out the list of prize winners.  On a side note, this was Lou's best finish since winning his flight in the 2013 Stroke Play Championship. According to him, the workload has eased enough to allow for more golf in the coming months.

Congratulations to the winners and thanks for coming out to slog through the muck with me.
