A total of 14 teams gathered Sunday at Timber Ridge Golf Course for the annual 4-man calcutta golf tournament with the prevailing sentiment of gratefulness that the event was not held on Saturday.
With temperatures in the 90's well below Saturday's triple digit thermometer readings, the 56 players hit the course for nine holes in the morning round. Teams were placed in two flights for the final 18-hole calcutta.
The team of Dave, Doug, and Marcus Shalley and Mike Frazier set the bar high in the morning round, finishing nine under par with a score of 25.
Three teams set atop the leader board in the A flight with morning rounds of 30.
The team of Mark and Corvin Drummond, Derek Weber and Kevin Fromm shot a 52 in the afternoon round, which was 16 under par, to win the championship flight calcutta. That gave them a final tournament score of 80, which was good for second place in the overall tournament.
The Shalley/Frazier squad carded a 54 in the afternoon round, tying them for second in the calcutta with the team of Smith, Smith, Smith and Waddell.
The Shalley/Frazier team took home first place in the championship flight for the overall tournament, shooting a 79 in 27 holes, finishing 23 under par on the day.
The Smith/Waddell team took third place in the tournament, finishing with an 82 overall score.
In the A flight the team of Andy Boyer, Tyrell Poe, Shane Poe and Nick Oliver took home first place in both the tournament and the calcutta. The team shot an opening round 30 before shooting a 56 in the calcutta.
That edged the team of Cockrell, Meldrum, Foust and Lodgston, which shot a 30 followed by a 57, to finish one stroke off the pace in both the tourney and calcutta.
The team of Steve Dial, Kasey Dial, Jason Porter and Brandon Garnett finished third in the tournament with an 89, shooting an opening round 30 and a 59 in the calcutta.
The event was sponsored by Doggy Boy Enterprises of Brock.
