The Pauma Valley Country Club Pauma Valley, California June 22-23, 2015
The 2015 TaylorMade Father and Son Invitational was played under warm, sunny skies at the beautiful Pauma Valley Country Club. The competition was fierce yet friendly, and the champions played some magnificent golf.
The low net championship was not decided until sudden death. Bruce and Matt Thompson came out on top when Bruce played a wonderful chip shot from the back of the 3rd green which required a short tap-in for victory over Bill and Mike Page. Both teams tied with a total of 134 (8 under par), and both teams rallied from behind the last day to get into the playoff. Bill and Mike shot 63 while the Thompson’s came home with a 62. This was the 3rd TaylorMade Father and Son victory for Bruce and Matt.
Our low gross champions for 2015 played incredible golf! Darrell McGehee and his son-in-law, Kris Hons, finished at 7 under par (135). This great team effort bested the team of Ken and Scott Earle by 3 shots, despite a fabulous final round by the Earle’s (65). This was the first time for Darrell and Kris to hoist the coveted champion’s trophy.
Pauma Valley proved to be the perfect host club and location for the tournament. So much so that next year’s event will once again be held at Pauma Valley. Information regarding the 2016 event will be posted as soon as available, and we hope to see all of you who relish this special relationship will be able to join us.
A big thank you goes out to the News 8 team in San Diego who joined us on the first round of the event and aired it a special feature that evening on CBS, San Diego local channel 8.
