2012 Franklin Canyon Tournament

Another beautiful day on the Golf Course.  A little worried the day before as the rain poured down but Sunday dawned bright and sunny, with cart path only being the only result of the rain.   A great tournament hosted by our twin fashion models – Sally and Betty.

The format for the day was an individual game of Three Little Piggies.  Players got to throw out their worse three holes(net)  Wouldn’t we like to do that every round?  Two flights were awarded prizes.  For Flight A, Michelle Ross took Low Gross overall with an 80 which included 2 birdies – way to go Michelle.  Michelle beat out Kristina Ramos for first place in Flight A for Three Little Piggies by a cardoff.  Tami Waddell took third and Linda Rothchild fourth with a three way card off for fourth.  Piper Shaull won longest drive in the fairway for Flight A.  Dee Tuohy won closest to the pin.  For Flight B, First Place for Three Little Piggies went to a card off between Della Gutierrez and Linda Dobb, with Della taking first.  Kay Middleton took 3rd place in Flight B as well as Low Gross in Flight B and Longest Drive!  Way to go Kay!  Eleanor McGregor took 4th in Flight B.
