The Rossmoor 18ers Golf Club had their annual Handicap Tournament over three days, June 10, 15, 17. This event is one of the 18ers two “majors”. The first two days of play were stroke play and the final day was match play.

Players were matched up with similiar handicaps for the first day. On the second day players were matched up by their net results from the first day. Players were matched up with the net totals of day one and day two for the final day.

On the final round, Joan Binnings emerged as the Champion, winning on hole one with a playoff against Ann Hamilton who finished as Runner-Up. Third place went to Joan Baggett and fourth place to Karin Romak.

The winners of the other matches were: Janice Davis, Jean Carroll, Joyce McCann, Daisy Soo Hoo, Janet Choi, Anna Kim, Olivia Hsueh, Pil Choo, Joanne Kim, Theresa Kim.

It was good news that Covid restriction rules changed as the members were able to play a shotgun start on the final day of the tournament and were also able to gather at Stanley Dollar picnic area for the first social event of the year.

Joan’s name will be inscribed on the perpetual trophy. Congratulations to Binnings as the 2021 Handicap Champ.

Thanks goes to Jacque Vigil golf pro, for her superb job in handling the event, score tabulations, pairings and tee times. Appreciation to Claudia Terry, Janice Davis and Denise Pratt for organizing event.
