The first NFJG Tournament was cancelled due to Hurricane Matthew, so Oak Marsh began the first one of the 2016 - 2017 Season. AA was once again the only Foundation Girl, so played with the boys.
From Jack's newsletter:
This week The Foundation Division would be consolidated with three boys and one girl in the field. Rumor has the Foundation TOUR will grow in the coming months as the US Kids Players
advance up the tournament ranks. Richard Hayden Ruth was all smiles as he sported a nice 43 with a birdie at the 4th hole. Alyzabeth Morgan, last season Player of the Year would fire a very nice 48 to take the Runner up spot while newcomer Anderson Palm would become a first time award winner finishing in the Third spot earning his first NFJG TOUR Medal.
Also, it was all about Phillip Dunham who is beyond his 8 years - From Jack's newsletter: At 10:00 am the first group would be announced to the tee and the Boys 10-12 Division lead by Sam Davis would be selected as this year’s opening player. Hitting the tee after Davis would be TOUR veterans Jack Hardy and Cam Goldknopf. All three hit the fairway running and in confidence. Because of his outstanding skill level eight year old Phillip Dunham who won 17 times on the NFJG TOUR in the previous season would advance to the Boys 10-12 Division. He would once again continue his trend of winning as he would shoot the low round of the day, a three over par 75 to claim the championship in the Boys 10-12 Division, followed by Sam Davis and Andrew Davis. Dunham would also be the tournament overall winner.
Ford ordered a burger for A to eat on the way home - she enjoyed every bite!! (I stayed home with Ginger, it would have been too long for her to be in her crate).
Next up is the King and Bear!
