One of the biggest weekends of #CityGolf came to a close last weekend on the Nextengolf City Tour. There were 9 tournaments taking place, so much action it took a full week to recover from all the excitement. Here are a few highlights:
Milwaukee - The Oaks Golf Course
Wow. Scorching rounds were played by the members of Tin Cup who combined to post an impressive best ball score of -10. Yes, you read that correctly, 10 under par, the lowest score on the City Tour thus far. Special shout outs to Judson Bro (69) and James Christian (72) on the Par 71 Oaks Course in Cottage Grove, WI.
St. Louis - Spencer T. Olin Golf Course
Not to be outdone the team going by Stroke of Genius in the Lou came together in their first tournament to post a score of -9. Setting the pace was the duo of Josh Baysinger (71) and Eddie Stahlhuth (72). Get these guys together at the City Championship and it’s going to be a shootout.
Atlanta - Chateau Elan Golf Club
