Thanks to all who attended the first LFDT event of 2016 and made the Heart of NH Open at Top O' The Hill a huge success! Official scoring page will be up in another day or two but here's something to whet the appetite of all you DG stalkers out there. Before you scratch your head wondering "how did MA2 low beat MPO low" keep in mind that MA2/FA1 played from white tees round2, all others from blue.
Hot shooting from Lem to (orange) crush the MA2 field at his home course (10 strokes!!). Not to be outdone, Nicole Maclean paced the FA1 field by 18! Charlie Veysey kept it "close" in MA1 with a 6 stroke margin over Isaac Kipp. Chooch beat out perennial contenders Daniel Marcus and Chris Young to take MPM while Peter Anderson edged out Greg Bianco to take MPG. For the 2nd year in a row the MPO title came down to a playoff - this time between Mike Habets and Evan Shper. Both shot hot first rounds (64 and 65 respectively) and Vegas oddsmakers favored Habets' experience heading into round 2. Shper fought back and closed the gap to send it to a playoff. C'mon guys, 44 holes wasn't enough? Habets prevailed in the end and made it clear that he's gunning for a 2016 NH season title to go with the GMPS one he earned last year.
We're off to a great start so far and we've got Pinnacle and Bellamy to look forward to in May. See you at the next one!
