Brown Brothers 2020 Father's Day Classic Golf Champions

The three-man team of Mitch-Preston-Taylor Brown captured the championship of the 2020 Father's Day Golf Classic winning by 3 strokes over the defending team of Kenny-Jeff-Jordon Greenwood.

The Brown team was trailing by 3 strokes after the opening Saturday round with the Greenwoods leading the field with their round of 58 on Saturday while the Brown's shot 61. On Sunday, the Brown's shot an amazing round of 55, 17 under par, and the Greenwood team slipped to 261 leaving the winners with a final tally of 116 and the Greenwoods at 119.

Another family team of father Chad Wise and his son Dillon and daughter Payton finished 3rd at 60-62=122. The Championship flight was composed of nine 3-man scramble teams.

A total of 35 teams made up the field this year at the Four Winds Golf Course after one of the 36 teams signed up failed to show, and despite a waiting list of additional teams, it was too late to call in one of the out of town teams listed.

The 1st flight was also made up of 9 teams and the winning team was Vickie Brown, Aaron Brown, Ralph William shooting a winning score of 63-63=126. In 2nd place was the team of Andrew Brown, Aaron Osborn, and Terry Osborn shooting 65-63=128, and third place went to Kevin Thomas, Gary Haack, Ty Laws with 67-61=128.

The 2nd flight had 10 teams with the winning team of Bill Hinton, Tanner Hinton, Trevan Hinton shooting 72-64=136. Blake Bohac, Brandon Bohac, and Randy Bohac finished 2nd with rounds of 69-69=138, and the team of Lucas Land, Austin Lang, Kelby Lang was 3rd with 69-70=139.

The 3rd flight had seven teams with the team of Dave Lukassen, Rick Henricks, and Mike Coleman winning with rounds of 73-67=140. In 2nd place were Duane Janicek, Todd Janicek and Troy Janicek at 76-71=147, and in 3rd place was Joe Fennell, Jay Fennell, Lanny Little at 75-74=149.

In addition to the top 3 teams prize money, daily flag prizes and skins, along with day money were paid out. The tournament was one to remember with the great turnout and with everything going off smoothly.

Tournament chairman Randy Bohac said, "It was a great weekend with great weather. The course was in great condition. There were great friends and family all around, and some great fun filled golf."

Randy went on to give a big thank you to all who played and offered up a "shout out" to Jeremy Williams and his staff for getting the course in excellent condition, and to Chad Wise and his staff in the Pro Shop were keeping things running smoothly throughout the entire weekend.

An observation I made was that the name Brown was the most popular this year, as noted in the teams mentioned in the winning lists, but along with several others. The Hobart Brown family out of Texas brought in 6 players, and this special family plays this tournament every year.

I also want to thank Randy Bohac for all of his help in making sure I had all the information I was looking for. The 2020 Father's Day 3-person Scramble is in the books and we already look forward to next year.
