Robbie White and Landon Covington shot 10 under par for 27-holes to win the Harry Neese Memorial tournament today at City Park. In this unique tournament the players play 9-holes of scramble, 9-holes of better-ball, and 9-holes of alternate shot. The formats get more difficult as you go. Jason Helmke and son were also very steady shooting 29-29-30 to finish in second at 8-under par 88. Jason Miller & Matthew Schroeder tied for 3rd with Scott Haynie and Frank Schroeder at 5-under par 91. Congratulations to everyone who played in this challenging yet fun event at City Park.
Gage Landry set out to defend his title as the Baton Rouge Champion. Defend he did, and in a rather convincing manner. Blistering a demanding front nine with a two under 34, he finished with a one over 73 to eclipse the field by a margin of 7 strokes. The St. Amant golfer who staged a come from behind victory on the back nine in 2019, acknowledged that this year he set out with a plan to take more of a commanding role in the early goings, a plan that worked very well.
Julie Harrison was basically fairways and greens on the front nine, shooting a one over 37; meanwhile Sophia Macias started off with a pair of double bogeys. Settling her nerves, Macias finished just three strokes behind with a birdie on the difficult 9th hole. Undaunted by Macias’s birdie, Harrison knocked in a 6 foot downhill breaking putt on the same 9th green.
Greg Berthelot & Taylor Calandro shot a 6-under par 66 round at Beaver Creek today to win the 2020 Plainsman Better-Ball tournament with a two day 10-under par 134 total.

Berthelot and Calandro won the second tie-breaker with a 3-under 33 on the back 9 on Sunday. The low round of the day went to Landon Covington and Robbie White who shot a 7-under par 65 to finish one shot back in third place, winning a tie-breaker at 135 with Tommy & Mickey Garrity.
