Last Saturday at the Madison Country Club, 16 two-person teams teed it up in the annual Two Flag Tournament.
What is unique about this format is having two holes on each green to shoot at. It was an 18-hole tournament with the first nine holes best ball and the second nine a scramble.
Stepping into the winner’s circle in the three divisions were —Division A: First place — Ricky Terrill and Luke Wright with a score of 65 and second place — Hubert and Travis Broaddus with 67. B Division: First place — Jim and Bud Carr, 67 and second place — Chad Gordon and Brent Whittaker, 68.
C Division: First place — Mike Freer and Harvey Winters, 73 and second place — Rick O’Toule and Kenny Wilson, 76.
The players all enjoyed this different format and had a fun day on the links.
