The 2014 Eagle Ridge Championship was met with not only beautiful weather, but, also with a host of wonderful competition. Fun by design and competitive by nature, the Championship proved to not disappoint on either front.
Bragging Rights Are Claimed!
With a total of seven flights up for grabs, Chris Buffaloe set the tone by taking hold of the Overall Men’s Championship with a dominant opening round of 3 under par for a 68 and an unreal 9 stroke lead. This was a two day event and Chris followed up with second round performance of 74 for a 142, even par for the event.
A valiant effort to keep pace with Chris saw Dan Davis place second with 151 (77-74) and Hunter Pennington filing into third place with a 153 (81-72). Unfortunately for those two gentlemen, once Chris ran away with the lead in the opener, he never looked back.
In the Senior Division Championship, all saw a much more highly contested battle. Craig Davis shot a total of 143 (70-73) which was just enough to hold off a phenomenal second round performance by Gary Huller who posted the ER Championship’s only other round that broke into the 60’s!
Craig’s strong opener was a bit much for Gary to overcome even with his blazing second round who finished with a 145 (76-69) and only two rounds off of the lead. What a heat that was.
The Ladies Show What They’re Made Of
The Ladies’ Championship was even more of a battle than the Seniors. After day one, all three ladies were within only two strokes of each other. Cindy Casey put up a strong second round and used that to motor away to a convincing eight shot victory over Jenny Martin.
Cindy’s two-day total was 162 (83-79) and Ms. Martin secured the net prize.
Great Competition and Great Times
The results for the remaining flights are seen below.
Flight 1: Tim Tant’s posted a 149 (76-73) to take the edge over Jimmy Cornell’s 150 (73-77) by just one shot.
Flight 2: With a two-day total of 157 (80-77), Buzi Ehilegbu finished only one shot lower than Rodney Lemmonds who took second place with a 158 (80-78).
Flight 3: Rod Parton made sure to give himself some welcome breathing room over Mike Mather’s 182 (94-88) by posting a three shot victory with a two round total of 179 (91-88).
Senior Flight 1: Another close showing came when Mr. Tae Kim edged his good friend Bruce Bright by a single stroke with a two-day total of 149 (76-72). Bruce matched Tae’s opener with a 76 guaranteeing it would come down to the wire. In the second round he posted a 73 to finish just out of first place on san luis obispo sign company board.
Join The Family
This year was extremely competitive aside from Chris Buffaloe taking this opportunity to show off against unsuspecting friends. It was all in great fun that ended with everyone reliving the best shots of the day and the “what if’s” over pleasant meals and with equally pleasant company.
