On a blistering day in late August, IAGA presented it's first ever 2 person BEST BALL TEAM stroke play event. It was a fantastic turnout and it brought a couple of new faces to the IAGA players as some of our members did bring guests (with NCGA handicaps already established) to the event.
There was a lot on the line as we not only had the Two person NET BEST BALL going, but the GROSS event brought it's own drama. This was also the first time IAGA conducted an event with ALL flights playing from the WHITE TEES.
The play brought high drama for ALL. The battle was watched closely via IWannamaker by the players and those following from the sidelines and the leads were changing hands just about every hole and the race was tight throughout.
At the end, it turns out IWannamaker did not reflect the final results 100% accurately as there was an error in entering a score by one of the teams into IWannamker. So what may have appeared to be was not and the OFFICIAL SCORECARD was required for the FINAL OFFICIAL RESULTS BELOW. It is why we always say.........the SCORECARD IS THE ONLY OFFICIAL SCORE, however, you MUST enter scores in Iwannamaker during the round to enable live scoring or face a DQ.
Congrats to the winners of the day:
- LOW GROSS BEST BALL - GROSS 72......JANG BADHESHA / RANDY SHIRBROUN
- LOW NET BEST BALL RED & GOLD FLIGHT - NET 63 .....SURENDRA VAID / VIKAAS DIXIT
