Battle at the River Golf Tournament Results

The 2022 Battle at the River was held on Saturday, May 7th @ River Club Golf Course in Pawleys Island, SC. We had a smaller field than normal but still a great event. Tom and his staff were incredible as usual. Thanks to him and of course the Founders Group for allowing us to play on their courses. Once again the course was in great condition.

Jamie Costanza (84) continued her impressive play to take runner-up. Randall Johnson also recently promoted finished 3rd at (86). David Swimm coming back after some back issues, finished 4th. 

Div 5 – I have been waiting to be able to write this for along time. I am so proud to announce that we have the newest member of the Srixon Family and long time Friend, Student and player get his first win ever playing golf. Mr. Bill Price our 2021 season Most Dedicated Player award winner and a 75yr young player pulled it out. He was playing only his second round with he Srixon ZX4 and and first round with his XXIO driver carded a 96(His Lowest round ever) to edge out Travis Shively by 1 shot. Needless to say Mr. Price along with everyone playing was so happy for him getting his first win. Travis had finished and was waiting in clubhouse to see what was going to happen. Travis was 2 shots behind Mr. Bill but Mr. Bill had 2 very difficult holes to play. #17 playing 140yds, which is long for Mr Bill and #18 a very difficult par 5 which was also long and has a lot of water on the left side all the way to the green. Mr. Bill hit his 5 wood to the front of the green on 17 and 2 putted for par. On 18, it took him 4 to get to the green and was able to 2 putt from about 25ft to take the win. Travis was pulling so hard for Mr. Bill and showed what kind of young man he is to be pulling so hard for him. Greg Dover continued to improve to take 3rd with Dalton Mitchell finishing 4th. Congrats M. Bill, you are the reason I do this!!!! Mr Bill received $120, Travis Shively $40
