Report
 

“We did not realize it was a golf game!”
:)
but indeed it was one of them and with some really good scores (winter rules enforced also in the rough, only a gentle breeze and greens in great shape helped).

It started like the famous John Carpenter’s movie but the creepy fog rapidly eased (scared by our shots?) and over the last few holes some pale sun was illuminating us.
Justin placed his brilliant bomb at hole 18th and won the longest drive while Tony, our stableford winner!, won also the nearest to the pin, at hole 14th (where he holed a nice birdie).

A very solid Keith made it to the second place (on back holes count) for the second time in his career at the Brancaccio's Golf Days and third (always solid) was our multiple winner Martin.
