MGA 2020 Season Ending Dogfight Results

 We had 48 MGA members to participate in the (No Entry Fee) MGA’s autumn dogfight. Two man teams were randomly drawn and each golfer was playing with their dogfight points. The team of Tony Evans and Morris Thomas took 1st place. They were 15 points above their assigned points total. They each won $150.00. 2nd place went to the team of Harry Gaither and Craig Herrod. They were +9pts and they each got $125.00 ea. 3rd went to Ray Ferguson and Doug MacMurdo at +8 for $100.00 ea. 4th was Manny Gooden and Stan Newton at +7 for $75.00 ea. There was a tie for 5th pl between the teams of Rusty Howard & Joe Haney and Matt Osborne & Brandon Fincher. Each team was +6. All prizes were awarded in clubhouse credit. Congratulations to the winners. The MGA furnished a $25.00 cash prize on all four par 3’s and also furnished $200.00 to the skins pot. Ray Ferguson won two of the CTPs, Jerry Latham and Rusty Howard won one each. There were only three skins won and they were worth $66.00ea. Harry Gaither birdied #4 for a skin. Joe Howard birdied #7 and Matt Hardin had the only birdie on #15 to get a skin.
We held a silent auction for this tournament and it generated an additional $1185.00 in cash that was also paid out.
The top two individuals in the tournament were automatically included in a shootout that took place immediately after the tournament. Harry Gaither and Ray Ferguson were top two golfers that elected to participate in the side pot. They were both +7. Six golfers were drawn from the optional $20.00 side pot to complete the field. Shane Cleckler, Jason Berry, Jerry Latham, Matt Hardin, Randy Martin and Brandon Fincher were the lucky ones drawn to complete the shootout field.
Two golfers were eliminated in each of the first two rounds of the shootout. One golfer was eliminated in each additional round. Matt Hardin and Randy Martin survived to make it to the final round. Matt outlasted Randy to win the shootout. Matt won $250.00 cash and the MGA is donating $250.00 to the charity of Center of Hope on Matt’s behalf. Randy won $150.00 cash and the MGA is donating $150.00 to the charity of Special Olympics on Randy’s behalf.
The optional $20.00 side pot also included ten tickets in this week’s Moon Pot. Brandon Fincher’s name was also drawn for the Moon Pot. Brandon received $100.00 cash and the chance to draw for the Rook card. Brandon drew the Red 2 and the Moon Pot increased to over $1700.00 for next week’s drawing.
Thanks to the golfers for participating and our staff that made this another successful event for the members of Alpine Bay Golf.
