Despite the cloud cover and brisk winds, 76 players showed up for the second Course Challenge Series event of 2012 at Turtle Creek. The first round of action resulted in a very tight field across all divisions. Phil Miller jumped out to the lead in Men's Open with the lowest round, 51, and a two stroke lead going into second round. Rebbeca Cox in the Open Woman's division turned in a 54 in the first round,good enough for 3rd in the Men's Open division. Jim Ferrara turned in a 53 in the first round, granting him a one stroke lead in the Men's Open Masters Division going into the second round. Drew Zeiglar earned some breathing room in the first round with a 55 and a 4 stroke lead in the Men's Advanced division. In the Advanced Masters Men division, Ron Godbey jumped out to a 1 stroke lead with a 58. The "Grape Ape" Tony Holsinger also distanced himself from his competition in the first round, shooting a 58, with a 3 stroke lead heading into second round. In a field of 29 players, Mark Dunn jumped out to a 2 stroke lead in the Rec division shooting a 59.
The second round the field started to heat up. After lunch, 4 time CCS Men's Open champ, Dave Cox, decided he had nothing better to do than take first in the Men's Open division, sneeking up off the second card for the win with a 48. Jim Ferrara bested his 1st round performance and the rest of Men's Open Masters Division, shooting a 52 for the win. Drew Zeiglar turned it up in the second round, shooting a 52 and taking the advanced division by 12 strokes! Lynn Ledford climbed the ranks to take first in the Advanced Men's division shooting a 56 in the second round. Jeremy Ison jumped from second to first in the Men's Int. division with a 55 in the second round and Mark Dunn joined the ranks of our winners securing first place in the Rec field with a 61 in the second round.
Congrats to all of our winners and we hope to see you, and better weather, in May at the next CCS in Oxford.
