Tim and Kevin clean up at the Am-Am

SAN CARLOS PARK, FL - The Fort Myers MGA launched its 2024 season with the Rebel Beach Am-Am at San Carlos Golf Club. A new team was formed by Tim Gunn and Kevin Leahy, and they took home the dual trophies by a comfortable 10 stroke margin.

The Gunn/Leahy duo was the model of consistency, posting a combined score of 174 on a day when the competitive field bitched endlessly about not holding greens and sending their putts flying past the cup. Gunn edged out Chris "Moose" Holland (86 to 87) for the giant check by virtue of carrying two fewer penalty strokes than his runner-up. Moose's gross 84 was good enough for a tiny little keychain trophy.

While belied by their scores, Chad and Gabe took the seriousness of this event to heart, showing up in their best formal wear. Rookie Dave Abney received the traditional "welcome to the Fort Myers MGA" in the form of the Key to the Red Tee.

As the great poet Ice Cube once wrote, it was "a good day." Weather was awesome, and San Carlos was in prime condition. It's an underrated course in Southwest Florida and we enjoy playing there. Thanks to Gary and staff for hosting us.
