FTSG for the last Weekend in 2020
And the Winner Is.....
PMGC_LogoLast year we started the Play more Golf Challenge and Kim High won the $750 Gift Certificate, we ran it again this year, and WOW what a change, as just about everyone entered played more golf.  

The method to determine the winner and honorable mentions was based on the number of rounds posted compared to the year before. 

The larger the difference the greater the number of chances to be selected. 

After the chances where awarded from 1 to 8, the names where ran through a randomizer 7 times and the person coming out on Top was Cindy Sitzman(2)*, receiving honorable mentions and listed by order of finish were Roger Sorey(4), Richard Wisecup(8), David Fox(2), Lori Foringer(8), Paul Mosko(8)

Cindy will receive a $750 Gift Certificate to the club her GHIN Membership resides.  The other top finishers will receive MVGA headwear.

Join us again when registrations start in the Spring of 2021

* Number of Chances to Win Based on Total Number of Scores Posted in 2020 as compared to 2019

From Golfworld's Valentino's Redemption

"Most nightmares last five to 45 minutes, or so scientists who study sleep tell us. Divorced from an earthly sense of time, all the dreamer knows is, there’s no end in sight. Valentino Dixon’s nightmare lasted 27 years and a month, although it could’ve been for life. How he found the strength to keep going while locked inside one of America’s most brutal maximum-security prisons for a crime he didn’t commit, and then emerge with his mind and spirit intact, I’ll never know."
