A terrific group of ASGA members enjoyed an adventure to Banff, Canada in July for the 2022 National Two Man Team Championship. Hosted by the Fairmont Banff Springs Resort, this was a trip that many members had circled on their calendar for years and the sold-out crowd was not disappointed! – the spectacular scenery just added to the championship caliber-golf, warm hospitality and wonderful food and drinks put forth by the Resort.
Many thanks to the large group members who helped to make the event special and congratulations to all of our winners from the week!
Matt Gilbert and Matt Ryan from Tallahassee, FL played great all week and on the strength of an opening round 67 followed by rounds of 73-74 captured the top gross prize. Finishing second four strokes back were with Craig Hopple (Sylvania, OH) and Mike Struna (Bonita Springs, FL).
Bob Elliott and Neil Falco of Bluffton, SC posted very impressive scores of 64-63-65 to take top net honors by three strokes over Bill Pigott (Toronto, ON) and Charlie Weston (Midlothian, VA).
In the Ladies’ Division, Carole Pigott (Toronto, ON) was crowned the gross champion with Lori Brisben (Hobe Sound, FL) finishing in second place. Geri McLauchlan (Boynton Beach, FL) captured the low net prize by a single point over Patti Struna (Bonita Springs, FL).
We have terrific events coming up at Cape Cod and Bonita Bay this year and will start 2023 with more great trips to Casa de Campo and Barton Creek in Austin, Texas…..we hope to see you at many!!!
