The PLMGA tournament directors, John Germaine and Shelly Washburn, outdid themselves when they came up with a tournament that pitted the two club Pro’s against teams of PLMGA members. There was some haggling on the make-up of the PLMGA teams. The initial definition was a group of three-man teams playing a scramble format, where each team member hit a shot and the best shot was selected for the following shot until the hole was finished. The Pro’s thought that would give the PLMGA members an unfair advantage, so the teams were reduced to two members playing the shotgun format.

The Pro’s turned out to be correct in their protest on team size. Even with the reduced team size of two, nine of the twenty PLMGA teams wound up beating the Pro’s, and shared the pay-out. The winning team was Shelly Washburn and Mike Burke.
