Week of Aug. 22 -Enough men showed up at the Pinehurst Golf Club to form a field of five foursomes. The competition was in the format known as a "shamble" where all team members hit a tee shot - the best is chosen and each golfer plays out the hole from that spot. The best three scores on each hole are used to come up with the tally for the team.
Placing first with a score of 115 were Les Yokom, Gene Noble, John Jones and Trenny Jordan. In second was the foursome of Jim Quinn, Dick Furman, Bill Christ and Bob Rogers with a total of 119.
In third place at 120, and out of the money, was the team of Bill Ottaway, Dave Holser, Butch Joint and
Ray Cenni. Rounding out the scoring was the foursome of Bob Lokietek, Jim Higginbotham, Vinny Paternosh and Todd Swanson at 129.
In a league of their own was the team of Bill Cole, Steve Woleben, Mel Allen and Rick Lawson who played a different format and were thus disqualified.
Solo awards went to the following men:
Longest putt made on No. 1: Butch Joint
Closest to the pin on No. 4: Gene Noble
Closest to the pin on No. 7: Les Yokom
