DC Metro 2023 Flight Points Winners


Weather shortened the DC Metro 2023 Season Finals to 27-holes, but the play was close and competitive. The weekend started out as a beautiful late-summer day, with no weather forecast for inclement weather or rain for the weekend, however, as usual the weather forecast changed late on Saturday to pretty much 100% chance on Sunday. 42 golfers from two (2) Golfweek Amateur Tours: DC Metro (49) and Richmond (1), tee'd off in Fayetteville, Pennsylvania @ the Penn National Golf Club. On Saturday the golfers tee'd off on the immaculate Iron Forge course. While the course was pretty much open, the rough and greens caused man problems. The rough was daunting and the green slippery fast. On Sunday, it rained from the 1st group to tee off until the last groups finished the front nine. By the time group 1 got the hole #8, the greens has almost became unplayable. All groups were directed to move the ball on the green to a location no closer to the holes in order to miss the massive puddles that began to form. With the forecast calling for heavier rain around 1330, the goal became to have all groups complete a minimum of nine-holes to ensure the round could count for the final.

(NOTE) The D-Flight Trophy from Stonewall was won by Jay Thompson based on his low D-Flight score on Day 1, however, he presented the trophy to Dee Hancock as she had he low score of the Day through 7- holes at Stonewall. That was a great gesture.
