The three time defending championship team led by Dr. Mark Pedroncelli came in second with a score of 56. Coming in third with a score of 58 were Sam Cole, Ralph Herrera, Craig Sepulveda, and Willie Johnson. Mike Hemak won the putting contest with a score of 11. Dave Cox from Ellis and Ellis won Closest to the Pin. Shelley Troshinsky, Doug Malinoff, and Tom Yee won our long drive contests. John Lescroart's team won the best dressed foursome contest.
