The 2018 Vince's Corner A-B-C-D Double Draw Golf Scramble was held this past weekend at the Four Winds Golf Course and it was a "Hot Time" for the 124 golfers involved as the temperatures rose to the upper 90s both days. Henry Heeg, owner of Vince's Corner, and his staff of volunteer helpers, made sure all golfers were taken care of, as far as, refreshments to keep them cool and refreshed.

Some red hot golf was also played, according to the scorecards turned in. There were 31 four-person teams involved as the entires were shut down at this figure with a waiting list in case anyone dropped out. Each team was made up of an A-B-C-D player with drawings held Friday and Saturday evenings for the next day play.

Four places were paid both days, plus four places for each division for the final results. On Saturday, the team of Brock Ehler, John Mejia, Trevan Hinton and Bobby Wistrom, shot the best round of 60.228 handicapped strokes (A player through D listed in order). the 2nd place team was John Mitchell, Troy Hill, Steve Linn, Kyle Anderson with a score of 60.334. Third place went to Michael Robinson, Rob Alderson, Dave Senior and Mark Fornstrom with 60.385. The 4th place team was Jeff Greenwood, Scott Butler, Mike Mason and Dave Mann with 60.825. Also, on Saturday, skin money was paid out to 3 winning teams with the Ty Garrett and Kelly Garrett team for their birdie on number 18, the team involving Kenny Greenwood, Bill Hinton and Jeff Anderson for their Eagle on number 8 and the team of which Randy Bohac was a member for their Eagle on number 13.

After a noon-time start on Saturday, the golfers teed off at 9:30 Sunday morning and the team of Ty Garrett, Troy Hill, Jeff Heller and Clint Nelson, took top day honors with 57.773. In 2nd place was the team of Jeff Greenwood, Will Sims, Pat Cordell and Mike Reuter with 60.825. Taking 3rd place honors on Sunday was Chuck Christensen, Bill Sinner, Brent Bauer and Mark Fornstrom with 61.013. Fourth place on Sunday went to Tony Robinson, John Mejia, Lloyd Howard and Cody Mann with 61.060. Only one skin was paid out Sunday and Pat Cordell, former Kimball High teacher/coach, winning that skin all by himself, as his team used his tee shot on number 17, with Pat also making the 8 foot putt for the birdie.

Four Winds Pro, Chad Wise, said, "The tournament went very well and it was fun to see so many who return every year. I want to thank Henry Heeg and the entire Heeg family for sponsoring this tournament on an annual basis, and I want to thank Jeremy Williams and his crew for having the course in such awesome condition." The Chamber of Commerce and the Kimball businesses should also thank Henry, as it brought many out-of-town golfers to Kimball. The parking lots at both the Four Winds and the Windbreak restaurant were full of vehicles and also campers who spent a couple of nights, plus those who were at the local motels.
