Bassters Fishing Derby

June 24, 2016

One of the highlights of the week is the Bassters Fishing Derby held on the bridge leading to the island par three, fifteenth. Players pair up in teams and have forty-five minutes to catch as many bass as possible. First place goes to the total weight of their best five catches.

The team of Marita Engzelius and Liv Chang angled their way into first and split $500. An extra prize of $100 went to Christine Meier for the biggest fish. The winning lunker was around two and a half pounds.

Winner, winner, let’s have fish for dinner.

If there was a booby prize it would have gone to Allie Knight for hooking a crappie. Good try though.

Island Resort Championship – Round 1

June 24, 2016

My player is Madeleine Sheils.

Two under today. Very steady.

Played with the Symetra Tour leading money winner, Madeline Sangstrom. Let me tell you, she is the real deal. Very long, plays aggressively but smart, great short game and a super attitude. She will win in her first year on the LPGA.

Bully is looping for Peiyun Chien this week. Shot –5 and is in the lead.
