The Fall McPherson Optimist Golf was held on Saturday, September 16. Five two person teams played a scramble format in beautiful conditions. The team of Our President Elect, James Melland, and Jack Rader won. The team of Keith Janzen and Duane Bender beat the team of Chad Clark and Chuck Singleton in a score care playoff for second! Chuck had the longest drive, James had the longest putt, and Chad Clark, Jack Rader, Ardie Streit and Neil Colle each had one of the closest to the pin shots on the par threes. We hope to see you on the course next year.
