On June 7th, IAGA swarmed on the new Nicklaus Club course (previously known as Pasadera). The skies were bright blue, the sun was shining, the BBQ was grilling, the participants were there early, the players on the range were full of hope and optimism (as always)...........and then came time to tackle the Nicklaus Club.

Within a few holes, all optimism was lost, survival instincts kicked in, short 300 yard holes yielded IAGA Maxes, the taste of the BBQ left a vile flavor on the pallet as the nervousness of a downhill 500 yard par 4 raised bodily juices not felt before.

At the end of the day..........Nicklaus won!!!!! The scores were survivalist for sure. A day that began with hopes of shooting par, faded to thoughts of the looooong ride home.

Here is how it all played out. Suffice it to say, that despite the scores, the winners were still the BEST of the DAY. They played the best golf of all the participants and deserved the coveted top prizes they earned for surviving Nicklaus the BEST. Congrats to all the winners below.

  • Overall Low Gross.......84.......Sandeep Malik
  • Maharaja Low Net...........73......Sandeep Malik
  • Maharaja 2nd place........Sunil Mehta (in a 3 way tie breaker)
  • Tiger Low Net..........71......Ravi Chekuri
  • Tiger 2nd place.........Manjiv Vohra
  • Cobra Low Net.........71.....Murali Dharan
  • Cobra 2nd place.........Manoj Joshi (in a 2 way tie breaker)
  • Long Drive Maharaja........Anubhav Rastogi
  • Long Drive Cobra...........Vishal Goyal
  • Closest to the Pin........Amitesh Kataria

There were plenty of skins on the table and these were the skins winners in each flight. With the carryover from hole to hole, there is a chance to walk away with a nice chunk of change if you happen to time it just right:

  • Maharaja....Sandeep Malik......11 skins
  • Maharaja....Naresh Kapahi......3 skins
  • Maharaja....Jang Badhesha.....2 skins
  • Maharjaja...Kannan Ayyar.......2 skins
  • Tiger/Cobra.....Baqi Khan.......7 skins
  • Tiger/Corbra....Vishal Goyal....5 skins
