JJ Walker is all class
JJ Walker (43 points) was firing on all cylinders giving a superb golfing exhibition as he raced home in 40 and 26 points on the back nine, including birdies on 10 and 18.
After an average front 9, Walker was all class.
Daylight saving was second and Danny Mickleson 3rd on 40 points, as he dealt to his son in the semifinal, booking an appointment with Gary Thomas in three weeks. Mickleson birdied seven and nine, along with seven pars in a solid 81 off the stick.
A number of players recorded 39, including Duane Dick, Denise Millner, Koke Cashell, Merv Tapp, James Fannin and John Fenemor. Dick and Cashell both shot 74 off the stick. Cashell was consistent, with 15 pars, whereas Dick had one birdie and 13 pars.
Millner played the par threes extremely well.
Tapp had a little trouble on the 15th in an otherwise rock-solid exhibition. James Fannin booked a place in the junior final, after dealing to the vice president John Gilbert.
Fenemor, like a number of players, finished his round in superb style, recording 12 points over the last four holes, including pars on both par fives.
Nick McGuinn came in with 37, while James Mickleson recorded 36, Matt Thomas 35, Kevin O’Brien and Pedro Valentine 34.
