Travis Trueblood lines up a putt as Randy Trueblood and Kelly Cooley look on during the Fatherís Day Tournament at TRGC.
It seems only fitting that the title at the 2010 Pepsi Fatherís Day Tournament at Timber Ridge Golf Course went to a father and son team. Mike and Mark Drummond claimed the top prize in impressive fashion, eclipsing their previous tournament record with a 16-under par round of 52.
ďWe got a good bounce on the first hole, when I chipped in for eagle and that just seemed to get us rolling,Ē said Mike following the tourney.
The Drummonds were 10 under par on the front nine, recording an eagle on hole #1 followed by a birdie on each of the next eight holes. They cooled off a bit to shoot a 28 on the back nine, but still finished eight strokes ahead of the competition in the morning round.
The father/son tandem of Dave and Marcus Shalley took second place in the championship flight with a score of 60 followed by Chris Hunt and Steve Simpson in third with a 63.
A total of 30 two-golfer teams took part in the morning round.
First place in the A flight went to the team of Fromm and Webber, who won a tie breaker with the team of Dixson and Dixson. Both teams finished with a 66. Steve Dial and Laddie Briscoe took third place, winning a three-way tiebreaker of teams with scores of 67.
The B flight was won by Kyle Lister and Robbie Miller. Second place went to Mattingly and Mattingly while Randy and Travis Trueblood took third place. There was a four way tie at the top with scores of 70.
Two more father/son tandems took home prize money in the C flight. Gary and Brian Dial won the flight with a score of 72. Gary and Bary Young took third place with a 73, with Andy Mallett and Jason Small taking second.
Only 20 teams braved the heat to take part in the afternoon round of the tournament.
