Vincent Gilmore has a 66 winning percentage at Oakhurst. No other player has dominated one course like Vincent in league history when playing one course three times or more. His very first win was at Oak Hurst back in 2015. I made a closing statement then about him losing his virginity and all the boys would be chasing after him well now it has definitely come to full fruition with his second win this year he is amongst the leaders of the pack. This win moves him up from 6th to 3rd on the League ranking, overtaking Captain Roland Turner and possibly relieving him of his duties as captain of the blue team. Stay tuned as the World Turns cause the super competitive Roland will not just hand over the keys to the Captain chair without a fight. Well, speaking of the Culture, Vincent 3 shot victory was over two of his teammates, Tony Barnett and Lonnie Knowles. Lonnie was cruising nicely he was hitting every fairway and every green on the front and forge himself a 4 shot lead, but when he made the turn he left his game in the snack bar. The back nine he lost 10 shots on the first 5 holes to finish tied for 3rd with Mike Rizzo. Second place was between Tony Barnett and Uday Singh. Uday ice-cold putter on bad greens was killing him pretty much handing the second place finish to Barnett. My hat goes off again to Vincent Gilmore on your 6th career with getting close to the Hall Of Fame numbers which are 10 wins that include 2 majors. Good Luck!
Well, Billy White's motto is 'look good and play good'. That is exactly what Billy has been doing. He has won his first two tournaments and put the B flight on notice
that he is the Man to Beat. The flamboyant Rookie has jumped to the top spot in the League Ranking in the B Flight. He has two tournaments and has won a White Jacket Masters Championship and Leader
on the Money List. Now that's Dressing for Success. The Oak Hurst victory was the very close race between rookie Steve Sachs who also won his the first tournament at Country Place last month and
veteran Jon Brazeal who is still searching for his first career win. Right now Jon holds the record for the most tournaments played without a win. Anthony Lemons 2017 champion and Nathan
Simcox who finished second and the Masters. All five of these players had their opportunity to win.
Lemon gave up 10 shots on the final 5 holes to finish 3 shots back in 5th place. Simcox lost 5 shots on the last 3 holes to lose by 2 shots. Jon and Steve had scorecard killers triple bogies on the back, lost by one and two shots respectively. Two things are a must when trying to win the golf tournament, you must keep the big numbers off your scorecard and finish strong. And that is why Mr. Dress for Success won the tournament no big numbers on the card and he did a good job of finishing the tournament. So congratulation on your win Mr. Fancy Pants Billy White.
