Spring Hill Makes a Statement at MGAWC17!

Representatives from the MGA Spring Hill chapter travelled to Las Vegas to take part in the MGA World Championship 2017 on Nov. 10-11, and all the festivities surrounding it.  Troy, John, and myself were accompanied by Troy's groupie Dawn Miller (AKA Troy's housemate).  I think I can safely say that this adventure lived up to the hype and more.

And we certainly made a statement while we were there!...though obviously not a fashion statement.  Actually we made two statements.  (1) We are definitely mediocre at golf and (2) we know how to have a good time both on and off the course.

Since memories are fleeting, and some even fled immediately the next day, I will attempt to document some of the highlights here for posterity.  And follow me @springhhillmga on Instagram to keep up with photos and videos of our chapter.

First let me set the stage for the two venues we inhabited for pretty much the whole stay.  The first is the Sam's Town Hotel in Vegas which is not on the strip so it didn't have the large crowds and ambience you may have experienced before, and this was great with me.  The second is the Revere Golf Club in Henderson which is where we played a little golf.


Now that's out of the way, let's get to the good stuff with actual people...



Friday Nov. 10th - Tournament Round 1


And for anyone interested, here are our scores (full results are further down)...

  Round 1 Round 2 Total Place
Troy 105 99 204 57
Pete 106 105 211 87
John 100 114 214 104





Whew!  You finally got to the end.  And there were so many stories left untold.  I hope to see you at the 10th anniversary World Championship, MGAWC18 on Nov. 9th and 10th at Revere, so you can make your own memories.  Mark your calendar now!

Also, please see this related news article for the stories and pictures of the overall tournament including some great interviews with the new champion!
