Tiburon in southwest Omaha is one of the Lincoln Senior Men's Golf League's favorite stops because of the great combination possible on the 27-hole course. So for 2018, the league used all three nines, allowing 183 golfers to experience the wonderful course and its amenities.
Because of the expanded field, two flights consisted of 16 four-man teams in A and B, with flight C having 15, while prizes were awarded for the first four places. Six pin prizes were also awarded by the league in the form of $25 gift certificates on the Mako and Hammerhead nines, and five on the Great White nine.
Prizewinners on Mako: Mike Abbott, Longest Putt on #1; Tom Brewer, closest second shot on #3; Mike Dosskey, longest drive on #4 fairway; Myron Thoreson, closest tee shot on #6; Jim Cunningham, closest tee shot to pin #8; and Bill Rainey, closest third shot on #9.
Prizewinners on Hammerhead: Mike Smith, longest putt on #1; Darrell Plumb, closest tee shot to pin #2; Wes Galligan, longest putt on #3; Rick Owens, longest drive on fairway #5; Jerry Petersen, closest second shot on #6; and Bill Westlund, closest second shot to pin #8.
