Nelson, Pocknall the big winners at Champions!
We had a great field for the season's final event of the 2015-2016 season at Champions GC. Padden Nelson's two round total of 141 came out on top in our strongest field of the year. Nelson followed a steady round of one-over par 72 on the Cypress course on Saturday with a stellar 2-under par round of 69 on the Jackrabbit course to finish on top. James Bartell and Jess Bonneau finish in a tie for 2nd place with a two round total of 143. There were two other important sidebars happening as well on Sunday. David Pocknall took the 2016 Points race and the Jack Burke Jr trophy by a small margin over John Dowdall who could not make the last event. In addition to that, there was also the business of awarding the 5 exemptions to the top 5 finishers on the combined points list for 2015-2016. Andy Hydorn, Bill Skorheim, Padden Nelson, Dean Burke, and Drew Canty earned those 5 spots in the 2016 HGA City Amateur. Congrats to all the players for a great season. We will be adding some events this fall to start our 2016-2017 season. Please keep your eyes open for the schedule.
