Frischette and Team Win Yankee Run 5-Man Scramble; 3 Holes-in-One Made for Skins!


Under ideal playing conditions with April temperatures near 85 degrees, a field of 36 teams vied for a $10,000 purse with an added $960 in the skins game.

The team of Eric Frischette, Todd Cravens, Mike Doan, Kyle House, and Ken Cook shot an amazing 19 under par, a tournament record. They amassed 2 eagles, 15 birdies, and only one par for their winning score of 51.

In the skins game, there were an amazing seven skins out — and an even more incredible 3 holes-in-one on the day! In the many years of this event, there have been only a couple of hole-in-ones in that entire span of time; three in one day is a spectacular feat. Complete results below.

As was stipulated prior to the start of the tournament, all ties were decided by a scorecard playoff beginning with the hardest handicapped hole and going forward. The following results reflect that tie-breaker:
