Over the past weekend, we just concluded our 2 day club annual tournament for 2011 at beautiful Chardonnay Golf Club and Eagle Vines Golf Club in Napa Valley. During those 2 days, our members battled 75 degree weather, endured sunny blue sky, braced for gentle breeze and suffered from views of ripe grapevines and carpeted greens and fairways. If anything, golf is indeed hard work. However, through this hard work, friendships have blossomed; camaraderie has grown and a sense of mutual respect has deepened. For all those who came out over the weekend, it was my pleasure and privilege to share those two days with you.

In the lady’s flight, Stella Chan captured low gross honors by shooting an excellent round 93 on the first day as she rested on the second day. Sandra Lo catapulted to low net victory with a great second day round of 96. Aree Fasudhani and Terri Huang came in 2nd and 3rd low net respectively.

In Men’s B flight, Leo Lee won low gross by playing consistent golf through 2 rounds, beating out Rangsan Fasudhani who had led him by 4 strokes after the first round. When it came to beating up on senior citizens, Leo, You Da Men. While not placing in the top 3 and trailing first day leader by 7 strokes, Suthee Tritasavit captured B flight low net honor by a great 2nd day performance. Walton Chang and Ron Ho round out the 2nd and 3rd low net in B flight.

In Men’s A flight, Dong Zhang ran away with low gross. However, special honor goes to our low net winner, Dr. Phillip Yu. After finishing his round of golf Saturday, Dr. Phil went back to the hospital to work his night shift, and then back to the golf course on Sunday again to finish the tournament. Playing golf during the day and saving lives at night, I wonder if the man wears a red cape during his life saving moments. Well Dr Phil, as long as you don’t babble like the TV Dr Phil, you can be in my foursome anytime.

For Founder’s Cup, this year’s winner is Stella Chan as she participated in every tournament this year and played with consistent excellence throughout. Leo Lee finished second once again while Sandra Lo came in third with her excellent play during the club annual.

Our final tournament of the year is on Saturday, Nov 12, 2011 at Roddy Ranch Golf Club. We will be playing this tournament in a team format. Please reserve the day as announcement will be forthcoming.
