Ben Blundell and Jordan Cook during first round of Trans-Miss Four-Ball
FLAGSTAFF, AZ (September 28, 2016) -- The teams of
Danny Licursi / Bowen Osborn and Ben Blundell / Jordan
Cook share the lead atop the Championship Flight
leaderboard after round 2 of the 36th Trans-Miss Four-
Ball Championship at Forest Highlands Golf Club in
Flagstaff, Ariz. Both teams finished with a 36-hole total
of 13-under par 129.
The Championship Flight led play this morning after
the final groups finished their remaining holes of the
first round. Ben Blundell and Jordan Cook, both from
Oklahoma City, Okla., came out red hot and fired a
front nine score of 6-under par 29. Blundell and Cook
finished with a 5-under par 66, backing up their first
round score for a total of 129.
The morning wave was interrupted for a brief
moment, as weather was again present at the Canyon
Course at Forest Highlands. Tournament officials had to
suspend play at 11:58 a.m. due to dangerous situation
in the immediate area; play ended up being suspended
for 90 minutes with resumption at 1:30 p.m. local time.
Highlight of the day came from the team of Danny
Licursi and Bowen Osborn, as they shot a sizzling score
of 10-under par 61. Danny Licursi aced the 200 yard,
par 3 fourth hole as steady rain was hovering over
scenic Forest Highlands Golf Club for majority of the
morning. Licursi, however, didn’t let that stop him as he
had three birdies and the ace in a four hole stretch to
help the duo cruise to top of the leaderboard.
When asked about their stellar play after the
second round of play, Licursi and Osborn noted that
their combined effort of not only each other, but also
their playing competitors. Playing alongside Licursi and
Osborn was the team of Jason Vedadi and Rob Mangini,
who also played well and shot 6-under par 65. “Acing
the par 3 fourth really helped us gain momentum as a
team” said Licursi.
With the completion of the Championship Flight, the
field has been cut to the low 17 teams. Tee times will
begin at 9:00 a.m. and 9:20 a.m., off #8 and #1 tee
As a result of the suspension of play earlier in the
afternoon, play for the afternoon wave, consisting of
both Senior and Super Senior Division players, was
again suspended by the Tournament Officials due to
darkness at 6:15 p.m.
Play will commence at 7:30 a.m. local time for
teams needing to finish their second round of play. The
last groups of each divisions have roughly six holes
remaining before Tournament Officials will cut the
Senior and Super Senior Division based on the pro-rated
allocation of teams in each division: Senior (17 teams
and ties); and, Super Senior (14 teams and ties).

ABOUT THE Trans-Miss Four-Ball
One of three annual championships hosted each year
the historic Trans-Mississippi Golf Association. Each
player must be a member of a Trans-Mississippi
club, but not necessarily the same club. Players who do
not belong to a Trans-Miss member club can speak to
their club's manager or board of directors to encourage
them to join (dues are very reasonable and support the
Trans-Miss Turf Scholarship Fund). Alternatively,
entrants may make a contribution in lieu of club
membership to the Turf Scholarship Fund.
