On March 8, we enjoyed a beautiful day and some excellent golf. Ten ladies and ten men were paired for “horserace” style play.
First place pair was Barb Wallace and Dave White. Barb kept them in the competition with a clutch downhill putt on hole No. 8. Dave saved the day several times, but notably with a second shot from the rocks in the desert to the left on hole No. 2.
Second place pair was Marsha Brockish and Dean Huyghebeart. Hole No. 4 challenges SunBird golfers regularly. These couples showed us how it should be played. Marsha had one her longest drives ever on hole No. 4. Dean’s shot of the day was an approach shot that traveled over 200 yards and came to rest pin high just off the green.
The third-place pair was Trish Carrel and Bill Barkley. Bill used his 3 iron from 210 out on hole No. 4 to land just short of green. Trish’s shot from against the wall on the right on hole No. 3 to just off the green was a crowd favorite.
