The SFC Ice Bowl is over, thank goodness. We had 31 people brave below freezing temperatures for much of the day, despite some sunshine. I guess it was fitting we had ice (on some of the tee pads) and some actual snow flurries. I'll give y'all a better report later tonight and I'll have the full results posted with scores.
I can tell you that: Chad Smith, Huntsville, Al., won Pro Open (6); Addie Isbell, Huntsville, won Pro Women (1); Mike Nichols, Florence, Al., won Advanced (5); Ernie O'Toole, Huntsville, won Advanced Master (9); Drew Sockwell, Florence, won Amateur Men (5); Judy Haydel, Columbus, Miss., won Am Women (3); Dan Albright, Florence, won Novice (3).
Despite the bitter cold, everyone appeared to have a good time.
Two people aced holes during practice. Larry Hobock, #10, just before the first round; Brian Moon of Birmingham aced $5. There were two aces during the second round. These aces were on the same hole by players on the same card, Richard Brown, Birmingham, Al., and John Baccus, Sheffield, Ala.
I want to thank all the folks from out of town, about 12 of you, for coming to this event, despite some really cold temps. Thanks, RwC
