5 Club Challenge

Baylands Golf Links
June 28, 2021
Atop of Cinnabar Hills

An absolute beautiful day in the Bay and a great round of exciting golf to be had. Tournament Director Andrew Clauson put together a fabulous event requiring partipants to only bring their five favorite clubs (putter included) to test their skills and creativity at Baylands Golf Links. We had a total of 61 entrants dueling it out over 3 Flights in hopes to earn their share of TOC points and purse money.

Flight 1 was tightly contested with first, second, and third place coming down to tie-breaker rules. John Driver edged out the competition and took 1st place along with 55 TOC points and $50. Sean Guzman was able to finish in 2nd place and Nick Williams took 3rd place. All three players finished the day with a net 73 (+1). 4th place is awarded to Chrarles Yun after he posted a net 74 (+2) and Shai Mohan and Jim Cowie split TOC and prize money for their 5th and 6th place finishes at net 75 (+3).Joseph Yagmourian had the best gross score of the day and earn his 55 TOC with a gross score of 72 (E).

In Flight 2, Christopher Walker posted a low gross of 83 (+11) to earn his 50 TOC points. Paul Lesti had 7 net birdies or better to earn 1st place and shot a net 73 (+1). 2nd place winner goes to Tim Schleiger for his great effort at shooting a net 75 (+3). 3rd & 4th place was again decided by tie-breakers when Rafael Carmona Toscano and Michael Kern both finished at net 76 (+4) for the day.

Flight 3 was home to our only net negitive scores of the day. 1st place going to Chuck Pickett after his spectacular day of 69 (-3) and earn 55 TOC points and $50. 2nd place is awarded to Andrew Castro for posting a net 74 (+2) on his first event of the season! Dominic Ascani was able to hold the field off with his 75 (+3) to earn 3rd place. While Ken Arends and Robert Gaffney finished in 5th and 6th with their net 76 (+4) on the day.

Thank you to our Tournament Director Andrew Clauson for such an amazing event. As he pointed out earlier, it doesn't matter which clubs you bring, inevitably, you will have brought the wrong one. Luckily for many of our players today they were able to fight off the elements of Baylands Golf Links and put together a great round of golf. Thank you to all the participants and we look forward to seeing you out on the links again soon!

Webmaster,
