Well, the first day of the 2015 AGT Championship is over and it's pretty safe to say we had a great time out there today! Thank you to the staff at Greywolf for a great experience and amazing conditions. It was almost everybody's first time out there and they loved it!
We followed up the round with an awesome meeting at the Copper Point Resort discussing the future of the Tour. Thank you to everybody for attending this meeting and providing so much feedback! It is much appreciated and the future of the Tour is looking very bright thanks to eager and loyal players like you.
Then we made our way over to Copper Point Golf Club and enjoyed a great putting competition and long drive contest hosted by Copper Point's Head Professional Scott McClain (AKA: Copper Scott). With an impressive 3 way tie for first place in the putting competition, wise Brian Payne taught the young guys a lesson getting closest to the hole in a 1-ball putt-off from the most difficult location. Congratulations Brian!!
The group made their way over to the 3rd tee on the Point course to hit long drives into the setting sun on this visually pleasing par 5. Andrew Cook smoked his driver 350 yards winning the Champ Flight, with Chris Patterson coming in 2nd with 317 and Mike Rowe in 3rd with a 310. In the A Flight, Brian Payne once again showed off his skills hitting a very impressive 298! "The Prez" Leah Bathgate showed her players she could hit a ball with the best of them with a 241, with Sandra Schell continuing to try to out drive her, but rolling back down the hill to a 238! Amanda McAstocker hit an impressive 181.
The fun is just beginning! Tomorrow we play Radium Springs for Round 2. Click here for full results from the 1st round of the 2015 AGT Championship at Greywolf. Talk to you tomorrow!
