2016 Handicap Championship Results
Janice Davis is 18ers 2016 Handicap Champion
A large field of golfers played in the 2016 18ers’ Handicap Tournament. The annual match-play championship is played in four rounds over two weeks.
The first round is the qualifying round. Based on that round of medal play, the field was divided into three flights. Three days of head-to-head match play followed. A consolation flight was played by those losing the early matches.
The final matches were played on May 26.
An exciting match for the Championship title was played by Janice Davis and Jane Lee. At the end of 18 holes, the match was tied, forcing the pair into sudden death in extra holes. The competitors tied holes 1, 2, and 3. Davis then won Hole 4, taking the title and Lee becoming runner up.
The Flight One winner was Theresa Kim with Gail Ramirez as runner up. In Flight Two the winner was Marcia Belcher and Helen Choi was the runner up. In the Consolation Flight Karin Romack was the winner, Janet Choi was second, and Ai Soon Hong was third.
Jane Lee won the “medalist” award by getting the lowest net score in the first day’s medal play.
Pat Deisem organized the four days of this tournament with the aid of Chris and Wayne from the pro shop and Grace Nitta organized the lunch that followed. Thank you ladies and gentlemen.
