The Labor Day scramble wasn’t the only event of the weekend, as the club also played their men’s league championship tournament.

“Ham and egging” their handicap strokes to the fullest, the team of Chad Abner and Clint Raney pulled away from all challengers during the final round to capture the 2019 Men’s League season ending tournament at the Winchester Country Club.

The duo entered the third and final round of the event with a slim one half stroke lead over their nearest challengers and another three teams within two strokes.

Their net better ball total of five under par 30 left them with a three round total of 90.5, a stroke and a half better than runners up Darren and Allan Henry.

Alex Rowady and Jim Fluty rallied to finish third (92.5), followed by Brain Baber and Stacy Lisle (93.5) and the fast closing Barry Warner and Porter Roberts (93.5).
