2016 President’s Cup Results
Tony Dalton is the finalist for Saturday’s competition and John Pierce “Mr Cheese if you please” is Wednesday’s finalist. These two will finish off by playing each other again in match play to capture the President’s cup. Neal Fisel who was beaten by Tony last Saturday will get 3rd place. Having observed Tony and John play last Wednesday for the Wednesday crown, it would be worthwhile to be a fly on the golf cart. Let the match begin soon and may the better player win. And they did finally get it done. Earth and Fire came together and no quarter was given. Tony Dalton prevailed 5-4 and sent John Pierce home from Dove Valley defeated in match play but not in life. Like I said wish I could have been there. Tony nice job man you are taking home all the gold.
