Great Feats in Golf
This past Sunday, Paul Day won the Dayton City Stroke Play Championship with a Course Record 62 on the 7174 Yard, Eagle Course at Kittyhawk, breaking the course record of 63 set by Mike Dempsey.  

Some highlights from Paul's Second Round.  He made 4 pars and an eagle on Hole 2 to start is round, then turned it on, birdieing 9 of his next 10 holes, standing on #16 Tee at 11 under par before he parred #16 & #18 with the only blemish being a bogey on the 150 yard par 3 17th.

Congratulations Paul on the Win and such a STRONG Round...
