RRMGA held its second annual AssBackwards Tournament on April 1, ‘Fools’ Day. This tournament is a nine-hole event playing the Buttes Nine, backwards. Players hit tee shots from number 9 tee-box, backwards to number 8 green, then proceeded to the next tee-box.
Players competed in two flights, based on handicaps.
First Flight Winners: Roger Shelton, Doug Connell, Don Juillerat, Nick Pike (wearing his shorts backwards) and John DeChristopher.
Second Flight Winners: Tom Harris, Bob Kleinke, Don Edge, Bernie Drew and John Peterson.
Everett Goin earned the AssBackwards Trophy, shooting the highest score.
After the challenging but fun tournament participants gathered in the Hermosa Room for pizza, beer, beverages and awards; another great day here in paradise.
