Ben Hughes beats Southern Dunes, the humidity and the heat to win the event today with a 66 net by one stroke over 2nd place finisher, Margaret Storms. Margaret shot a 67 net today. She was in my group so I got to see it first hand. As always very steady down the middle but her putting was awesome today. She made a very tricky 40 footer from off the fringe of the Par 3 hole # 4 green that would make any Pro proud. Nice work Margaret. The “Golden Boy” Rusty Silverman and Chris Ray locked up in a tie with 68 net scores. Rusty won out on a scorecard playoff and Chris alas gets the Atta-a-Boy.  Troon North is up on Wednesday with the rest of the field’s scores below.
