The Men's Member-Member was held this past weekend, Saturday & Sunday, August 27th & 28th at Pembroke Pines Country Club. 28 two-man teams competed in a 36 hole, team-combined Killer Quota format on what was a perfect two days of golfing weather. It was a star studded field with more than half of the field of players carrying a single-digit handicap. The final day concluded what was a tight race to the top of the leader board.
The start of the day showed promise for first round leaders Cal Bisson and Justin Wilk with a pair of eagles on the first hole netting them 16 points right out of the gate. The success on the 1st hole proved helpful but did not give them the win as they fell short of the charge from the team of Zack Buckman & and David Stickney, and to our eventual 2016 "P Cup" Champions Jim Dussault & Jack Perry. Congratulations gentlemen! Below are the final results for those who placed.
