Tournament Summary:
by Rod Manalo: Secretary of the RSMC

90 members (45 two man teams) entered to compete for the NCGA Four Ball and Senior Four Ball Qualification.

All players played from the white tees.

For the NCGA qualifiers, members received 90% of their February 15th index, with a maximum index of 18.4. In addition, if there were more than 8 strokes between the teammates, their indexes were reduced by an additional 10%. There were 24 non-senior teams and 21 senior teams.

In addition to the qualifiers, the teams were flighted into 6 flights for prize money. In this competition, members received 100% of their handicap with respect to their index.

Course conditions were perfect. However, mid morning the winds were blowing.

In the NCGA Four Ball Qualification Tournament, Steve Mahrt and Dale Ramirez won with a net 59. That was 13 under par. I guess the wind did not bother them. Kurt Schindler and John Goodwin missed out by one stroke with a net 60. If the RSMC had 151 members at the January 15th NCGA deadline, two teams would have qualified. RSMC had 150 members at that deadline. Sectional play will be on May 14, 2015. Course to be determined.

The RSMC were able to send two teams in the Senior NCGA Four Ball Qualification Tournament. NCGA allows to teams to qualify if the club had at least 101 members.

The team of Mike Curtis and Ken Kantor shot a net 60 to qualify. They were joined by the team  of Gary Sigel and Tim Williams who shot a net 63. Sectional play will be on July 29, 2015. Course to be determined.

For the money, there were 6 flights. Flights were determined by total team handicaps.

First Flight: (8 teams): Mike Torrence (6) and Tony Amaral (4) won this flight with a net 63.
Second Flight: (8 teams): Kurt Schindler (15) and John Goodwin (10) placed first with a net 58.
Third Flight: (9 teams): Mark Dietrich (7) and Ed Forrest (19) won with a net 62.
Fourth Flight: (9 teams): Dale Ramirez (15) and Steve Mahrt (18) placed first with a net 58.
Fifth Flight: (6 teams): David Brikovich (20) and Randy Powell (24) won with a net 62.
Sixth Flight: (5 teams): Jose Reyes (28) and Ken Scheidig (33) won this flight with a net 59.
