Ben Shur

2016 City Golf Champion
The PGA Tour trade marked "These guys are good." We're applying for the trade mark, "This guy is good!"

Gavin Lee

2016 Arnold Palmer Champion

Gavin likes even numbers. He won in 2014, too!

James Bedard

2016 Ben Hogan Champion
A former S. B. Dons high school golf coach, a great inspiration to junior golfers, and just lucky Coach Dave De Heras is PGA and can't play the event. Sorry James, my kid went to D.P. Go Chargers!

Bruce Shinden

2016 Jack Nicklaus Champion

Bruce is so good, he won his flight playing every shot left handed!

Jim Tricase

2016 Lee Trevino Champion
Jim is smiling because he knows this is the only flight that really matters. Sorry guys, I do the website, and I'm a huge Trevino fan!

Jim Thornton

2016 Sam Snead Champion
This guy looks way too happy. Did we forget to tell Jim all proceeds from the Hogan Flight are donated to the City of S. B. General Fund?

Jeff Hengels

2016 Gary Player Champion

Jeff enjoyed the event so much, he played one extra hole to win it. Congrats on the play off victory.

Pete LaMantia
The "G" Team

Oh, "G" doesn't stand for golf, we used up A-F for the flights, so G was the best we had left.

In all seriousness, those who  emerged victorious are to be  congratulated for putting together not just two, but three great rounds to win.

The event is just an event, but you and your fellow golfers make it a fun and exciting competition each year. Thank you for your support.
