12/11/11: Holly Daze Tourney Recap
The Holly Daze Tournament went down on the 10th of December…if you missed it (or maybe you just need a little help to remember it!) here’s a by-the-numbers breakdown of the fun:
70 golfers showed up for the 22nd installment of the Holly Daze, held this year at Sioux Passage- 36 holes in 2 rounds covering over 15,000 feet of golf across the signature hills and valleys of one of St. Louis’ finest courses. Layer-shedding 40-plus degree temperatures; a tasty $5 hot lunch on-site; and Zero – the number of Cali’s Neil needed to finish the Putter Challenge sidegame! The legendary Santa Laker made an appearance in his perfectly placed (and fully stocked!) LakerLand encampment near hole 4, and both the tree and Santa were loaded with presents…
From a competitive golf standpoint, some guy named Nikko Locastro won the Open Division. We’re still waiting for full scoring details, but i believe he threw 101 shots over the 2 rounds. Not far behind was Roger R., which i think makes the second RCF event in a row he’s placed 2nd to Nikko. In the Pro Old Guys Division (sorry fellas), i hear John Lloyd held off a charging Joe Jaegers to win by a stroke in a battle that wasn’t settled until the last throw of their final hole.
