Blue Ridge Shadows Golf Club Tournament Results
30 Golfers battled it out over two days and the US Open Rough at Blue Ridge Shadows. Recent rains had prevented the course from tackling the rough and it captured many during the course of the 36 Hole Championship in Front Royal, Virginia.
In Division 1, Sean Heath was the only entrant and got off to a rough start with an 88 on day 1 but recovered nicely on Day 2 with a 73.
In Division 2, Bill Marlowe of the Maryland Chapter came out of the gate strong on Day 1 with a two over 74. He carried that momentum in to day 2 and posted an 81 for a 6 shot victory over fellow Marylander, Jeff Snowden. Maryland Chapter Owner, Dave Baca finished 3rd, 9 shots behind. Marlowe also captured 3 Flight Skins on Sunday and 2 Super Skins.
