The winners of the Texas Scramble 25 percent combined handicap tournament at the Ga'ash Golf club on Wednesday were Amos Raz and Gil Don with second place once again taken by the young pair of Inon Zadok and Itai Gonen. The Texas scramble in this particular tournament had both players teeing off and then continuing to play from the best position until the ball reached the hole. The tee shots were divided by nine for each player, making the logistics somwhat difficult. Don and Raz had a front nine of 34 shots which included two birdies, six pars and one bogie and came in with a 33 which included four birdies, three pars and two bogies. Zadok and Gonen played excellent golf, due to their extra practicing during the school holidays, and their training by the Ga'ash golf professional, Basil Katz. Inon and Itai had a front nine of 35 and came home in 32 which included three birdies and six pars. The Nearest to the Pin prize went to Don. The 64 participants were treated to a barbeque on the terrace of the Albatross restaurant, at the Ga'ash Golf Club and while dining were entertained by a belly dancer. The next tournament will be the Monthly Medal at the end of August and the 2009 Club Championships coming up in September.
