Twenty- five area golfers left home on the morning of June 26 heading to Olde Mill Golf Resort in heavy fog and 100% rain in the forecast to participate in the Laidback Golf Tours first MAJOR of this season. Upon arrival they found the fog lifted and a beautiful seventy degree overcast perfect golfing day. It was like God had an umbrella over the course as clouds and rain mist surrounded the area. The fifty- year old breath-taking Ellis Maples designed course again proved it’s worth giving up only three rounds in the seventies, one eagle and twenty birdies to the entire field.

The A Flight had to be determined by a play-off by the same top two finishers from the 2017 event here. Both David Turner and Steve Cummings finished regulation play tied at 76. They proceeded to the par 5 first hole where the both made par. On the second play-off hole a par 3; David Turner claimed his first win of this season as he again made par while Cummings bogied the hole. This was the third year in a row Turner has taken the top spot here at Olde Mill. Turner also claimed a skin with one of his three birdies of the day. Cummings got his fourth second place finish of the season to go along with one win in his five season starts. Johnny Gauldin collected third place with his round of 78.
