First Round – Baywood Greens, Long Neck, Delaware.
Partly cloudy as the heavy rain storms over the last 36 hours headed towards the ocean in time for our afternoon opening round. This left the course soaked and it was also quite humid with temps in the mid 60’s when we teed off at 2:00 pm.

Final Round – Nutters Crossing, Salisbury, Maryland.
The partying at Jim’s ended between 2 and 3 am while it rained all night and into the morning, the course was drenched. Luckily we had a window between storm cells from the Southwest to forge ahead with round two. Temps in the low to mid 60’s with a little wind at 10:00 am for the start of the second round.
Leon double bogeys the first hole then runs off a string of 5 pars. He bogeys the tough par five 6th and finishes with two more pars to shoot a 3 over 39 for 6 points on the front nine.
The tournament was called after nine holes due to the torrential rain that rolled in for the remainder of the day.
