GOLF – winners of our biannual family golf  tournaments 


Starting in 2002, myself, my nephews, and my sons began participating in two golf tournaments every year.  We called our spring outing the “SPRING FLING” and the fall tournament was called the “FALL CLASSIC”.  The individual winner of each tournament became the possessor of the “CHICHI” trophy, named after ChiChi Rodriguez, for six months.  That player had the privilege of picking the venue of our next tournament.  We also paired the #1 and #8 players, the #2 and #7 players, the #3 and #6 players, and the #4 and #5 players into a twosomes, and the twosome with the lowest combined scores would claim the “FREDDIE” trophy for 6 months, that trophy being named after Fred Couples.  We have played on wonderful golf courses, from Bountiful in the north to Mesquite, Nevada in the south, from Page, Arizona in the east to Fillmore City in the west.  We have had such wonderful times together for all these years, and I cherish the memories of our love and camaraderie.   Here are the names of our winners over the years.
