NCGA Senior Four Ball Qualifier
May 19, 2018 at Los Lagos

The club returned to Los Lagos in San Jose after a couple of years to play the NCGA Senior Four Ball Qualifier. The competition consisted of two tournaments - one to determine the two four ball teams that will go on in the NCGA competition and one to determine who won the prize money and the coveted TOC points.

In the qualifier, the team of Ray Coler and Buzz Ogren took the first spot with a nine-under net 59. John Osness and Jim Schenkel teamed up to take the second spot with a net 63 despite four other teams shooting a better score. The dilemma in the qualifiers is always which teams can play in the next round and sometimes the better scores can't continue.

In the "Points and Prize Money" portion of the tournament, the father/son team of Keith and Darien Arends won the low net with a 59 in the First Flight. Second place went to Ray Coler and Buzz Ogren with a 61 while Dave Bridgman and parnter Anthony Luscri took third with a 64.

Continuing the father/son tradition, the team of Bob and Ken Arends won the second flight with an amazing 11-under 57. Matching that score but losing a card playoff was the team of Tracy Powell and Chuck Pickett who took second. Third place went to Thomas Barreira and Robert Golzen.

Congratulations to all and good luck to the qualifiers in the next round of competition.
