Battling the radar, 35 TFT Participants came out to FDR golf course to test their skills in our 2nd TFT Tournament of the year. The South Philly Open. Tee Times for the day started at 2:50 pm with our 15-18-year-old students setting the pace. After a minor storm delay, everyone was on the course by 4:30 pm.
Our 18 hole Divisions played a stroke play event. Our 9 hole Divisions played a Stableford event which the player with the most “points” after 9 holes wins.
The Divisions of play and Champions were as followed :
18 Hole Boys – Julian Ciurlino (79)
18 Hole Girls – Dakota Baker (82)
9 Hole Futures – Devin Carpenter (25 points)
9 Hole Discoveries – Spencer Einck (21 Points)
18 Hole Boys – Sam Smith
18 Hole Girls – Phoenix Baker
9 Hole Futures – Max Menna (24Points)
9 Hole Discoveries – Nathan Anderson (18 Points)
The weather held off just enough to get the tournament in. The 9 Hole Discovery Division was scored off of 8 holes, due to the fact that weather did not allow a few groups to finish with strong Thunderstorms rolling through the area.
We want to thank all of the parents and participants for coming out and enjoying a day of golf, learning some new things, and being competitive. Each and every
one of the students did an excellent job following the 9 core values throughout the day!
Our next Tournament will be June 25h at the Philadelphia Cricket Club, St. Martins Course.
