Once again, the Laidback Golf Tour traveled to Greensboro National Golf Club where they held their 14th tournament of the season. Just as in previous seasons the group of 24 golfers found the course to be in great condition and one of their favorite stops on their schedule. This time the challenging layout gave up two eagles and eighteen birdies to the field as four golfers turned in rounds in the 70s.

Leading all scorers for the day was Mark Dill playing in the A Flight with his score of 74. Dill carded one eagle and one birdie in the round to allow him to claim his second win of the season in just four starts. It was also two in a row as he also won the Tours last event which was at Forest Oaks. Steve Cummings and Fran Hensley both turned in scores of 75 to tie for the second spot; but Cummings collected the prize money as he won a single hole play-off against Hensley.

A play-off was also necessary to determine the B Flight as Tom Simmons and David Wilson both finished regulation play tied at 82. Simmons won the play-off as he two putted while Wilson took three putts. It was Simmons first win of the season. Wayne Ferrell claimed third place in the flight at 85.

The C Flight also had a first-time winner for the season today as Debbie Thompson claimed the two-stroke victory with her round of 83. It was only Thompson’s second outing of the season. Lee Lemons also competing in his second event of the year took the flight’s second place with his round of 85.

John Horton collected his second win of the season in D Flight with his round of 89. Meanwhile Curtis Smith and Tour Director Kenny Powell had to have a play-off to determine second place. After coming to the 18th hole tied; Smith forced the play-off as he putted in from off the green to tie Powell at 94. They went back to replay the 18th hole for the play-off only for Smith to once again putt in from off the backside of the green to win the second-place prize.

The Tours next outing is scheduled for Tuesday Oct. 9 beginning at 10 a.m. at Deep Springs Country Club in Stoneville, N.C.
