Lincoln Senior Men's Golf League groups were challenged with three different formats for the three flights of U-Pik teams that played on all three nines on one of the league's favorite stops -- Tiburon Golf Course at Omaha.
The 178 golfers were divided into 15 four-man teams in all three flights, while prizes were awarded for the first four places. Flight A utilized a Best Ball format with 60% of players' handicaps on Hammerhead and Mako; Flight B was a Shamble, also using 60% of the handicaps on Mako and Great White; and Flight C was a Scramble on Great White and Hammerhead. Six pin prizes were also awarded by the generous club representatives on the Mako, Hammerhead and Great White nines.
Pin prize winners on Mako were Dewey Zerr, closest tee shot on No. 8, and Dennis Lewis, closest second shot on No. 3. Winners on Hammerhead were Robert Hailey, longest putt on No. 3, and Steve Ferris, closest third shot to the pin on No. 9. Winners on Great White were Allan Gabel, longest fairway drive on No. 1, and Harold Griffin, longest putt on No. 8.
