El Encierro Recap
We had our Men's Member-Member, El Encierro, this past weekend. After an impressive 9-under par 63, Ben Fisher and Matt Mitchell were able to hold off Steve Scott and Chad Tidwell to take the title. John Fisher and Buzz Fly made an early charge but had to settle with a third-place finish.
In the Net Division, Sammy Stover and Jaron Wilder came from behind on Sunday to take the title. Tim Brahm and Bill Edwards made a ton of birdies and even a couple of eagles to finish second. There was a tie at third between Kent Thompson and Bill West and the team of John Maiden and David Oxley. What a great weekend!
