NCGA Four Ball Qualifiers in Northern California

NORTHERN CALIFORNIA (April 7, 2005) Qualifiers were held on Thursday throughout Northern California for the NCGA Four Ball, a tournament that will be held in May at the famous Spyglass Hill Golf Club. Players in 2005 will find out how good Phil Mickelson's round of 62 was at the AT&T as they struggle to break par ... BEST ball.

It was definitely an 'all ages' affair, as qualifying 2-man teams ranged from combined age under 50 to over 100. The team of senior player Dave Parsons and Neil Hamilton tied for low at Shadow Lakes with a wonderful best-ball 65.

Results from April 7 follow. Congratulations to all qualifiers.
