Four Parks – Howard, Jenny, Jason and Hyung – and Sohn Moon combined to win the Fall Five Ball Tournament at the Whidbey Golf and Country Club Saturday, Oct. 8.
The quintet captured the tournament with a 122 net and also took first in the Choker Honey Pot competition and the 18th hole skins game with a 17.
Two teams tied for second at 124: Rick Nunn, Chuck Flajole, Rob Wunder, Bob Wilzen and Tom Kidd; and Scott Nelson, Greg Hall, Greg Chandler, Mick Brusco and Doug Campbell.
The tournament, sponsored by China City Restaurant and Lounge, had an unusual format. On each hole the teams had four players play a scramble and a designated fifth player play his or her own ball. Those scores were combined to create a team score.
Team competition: fourth, Jake Cohen, George Schmidt, Ocki Dureau, Chuck Yurcina and Gary Van Cleve; fifth, Craig McCaul, Gary Boonstra, Steve Shyman, Gordon Sears and Bob Greathead; sixth (tie) Dan Nordstrom, Roger Pierce, Tom Ford, Doug Pierce and Dave McCool; Gene Cushway, Pat Ford, Marv Seelye, Steve Anderson and Tracy Voss; and Keith Larsen, Eric Gentry, Leo Munzo, Bradd Fodor and Albert Pulido.
Chocker Honey Pot: second, Schmidt, Dureau, Van Cleve, Yurcina and Cohen; third (tie) Sears, Shyman, Boonstra, McCaul and Greathead; and Larsen, Gentry, Munoz, Fodor and Pulido.
Team Skins: hole 4, score 5, and hole 7, score 4, Nelson, Hall, Brusco, Campbell and Chandler; hole 12, score 7, Cohen, Schmidt, Dureau, Yurcina and Van Cleve.
Closest to Pin: hole 2, 5’10”, Yurcina; hole 7, 2’2.5”, Jack Martens; hole 13, 3’4”, Gentry; hole 17, 32’15”, Bryan Wilson.
