Shufelt (73). Chad Frank and Bill Foster

round of 2-under par 70. His round included six birdies and four bogeys. It
was the lowest of many good scores in A Flight. Scott Puttick

four strokes as Ben Hamby carded 81 to take second by one
stroke over two players. Jim Kenney and Ernie Hallare
tied with 82's Matt D'Auria rounded out the top 5
with 83. Khokar joined the tour in the second half of last
year and with the victory has earned a promotion up to A Flight beginning with
his next tournament. It is one of the great things about the tour--when a
player "takes his game to a new level", he earns the right to step up his
competition. Good job Andy!
