June 25, 2014 - David Dai Cho is 2014 President's Cup Champion
The annual LWMGC President’s Cup is a grueling Two-Stage Major tournament which is contested through entire month of June. After an 18 hole first round Medal Play event, the field is narrowed to the top 16 players in each of the four (A, B, C and D) Flights. From there-on-in it is a single elimination Match Play tournament within each Flight until the four Flight winners ultimately battle it out for the top spot … President’s Cup Champion !! For players who do not gain one of the coveted “sweet 16” spots in each of the four flights after the first round, there are still TPC Wednesday Tournaments for non-qualifiers in the weeks following the first round. The competition for this title is stiff … as a matter of fact, in the entire forty-eight year history of the event there have only been two repeat winners. Archie Kneff and A.J. Stadjuhar !!

This year’s tournament kicked off on Wednesday June 4th with 136 entries and after a demanding four week schedule it all came down to the “Final Four” shoot out which began on Monday June 23rd. The four individual Flight Champions were: Don Fleming - A Flight, Chul Kim - B Flight, David Dai Cho - C Flight and Dr. T.S. Kim - D Flight.

August 7, 2013 - Aces & Eights Lucky For Leo Pak
Leo Pak used a 7 iron to score an ACE on the 142 yard 8th hole of course #2 during the Team Skins Major Tournament on Wednesday 8/7/13. This was Leo’s 3rd hole-in-one on one of our 8th holes in the last 3 years. He had previously recorded an ace on the same hole in 2010 … and in a case of good luck but bad timing … Leo scored a hole-in-one on the 8th hole of course #1 one week after Fladeboe Chrysler was giving away a free car during our annual memorial tournament. Way to go Leo !!
 
 
 
July 8, 2013 - Hassell W. Berry Scores One For The Ages
Hassell W. Berry’s recent golfing accomplishment puts him in ultra-rare company. On 7/8/13 he scored a hole-in-one on the 1st Hole of Course No. 2. The reason this will be such a rare achievement is that on 10/1/13 this hole will once again become a Par 4 and the likelihood of anyone else scoring an ace here will be slim. During the past few months due to highway and course construction the hole has been playing as a temporary … but legitimate Par 3 at 120 yards and to testify to its difficulty, Hassell’s ace was the only one recorded during that time. Way to go Hassell !!
