Our year long $10,000 Reynolds Red Zone Challenge had its finals on October 18th.  The eight finalists were picked by a drawing of the golfers who completed the Red Zone Challenge, improved from the first test to the second test, and turned in an entry form.

We held the 2nd Annual Red Zone Challenge at the National Golf Course and Golf Academy.  The weather was great and everyone involved seemed to have a great time.  We played nine holes at the Ridge with various short game shots from 100 yards and in.  We took the nine hole score minus half the golfers short game handicap to determine the four who would be part of the second phase of the competition.


The final four then hit two shots in each of the 6 Red Zone categories: Short Putting, Long Putting, Chipping, Pitching, Bunker and Distance Wedge.  The competition was tight early, but Jim Erlandson started to pull away and it became a battle for second place.  William Stewart’s final shot over the creek from 60 yards gave him 20 additional points that narrowly put him in front of Claude Moldenhauer.


Lyda Bonifay carried the torch of the female golfers in our program very well and did her best on every shot (even though she was nervous with it being one of her first competitive outings).


All eight finalists gave it their best to win the grand prize- a day at the TaylorMade Kingdom and full set of TaylorMade Golf Clubs.  Jim Erlandson took first place and will receive the Grand Prize worth over $4,000.00!  Each finalist came away with a great prize.  The other 7 places are as follows:


2nd Place – Year of Lessons with Charlie King – William Stewart

3rd Place- Entry Fee to 2010 Member/Guest- Claude Moldenhauer

4th Place – TaylorMade Performance Lab Fit – Lyda Bonifay

5th Place – 3 Hour Family Lesson with Charlie King – Ron Lang

6th Place – TaylorMade Putter – Dale Johnson

7th Place – TaylorMade Wedge – Larry Combs

8th Place – Penta Golf Balls – Carl Stollenmeyer
