Mountain Woods Golf Club, Past Presidents Cup Team Update

Round #2 of the NBGAs Past Presidents Cup,  was held this past weekend and featured an exciting duel vs Lakeside Golf Club.   The festivities opened on Saturday at Mountain Woods,  where the home Team rallied to a 13 point lead after day one.   With all 8 pairings battling hard for every point, it was the Nixon / MacFadyen duo that dominated the field with a 7 up victory over their competition.  Moving into day 2 at Lakeside,  the 13 points we had in the bank gave us the confidence we needed to play well on the road.   As the day rolled on and scores were echoing around the course,  the tides were turning somewhat through the front nice and our 13 point lead had shrunk to just 6 points.  Rounding the corner after finishing 11,  Nixon reported that he and Oxner had fought back to square the Match,  great news considering they were 2 down earlier.   The Back nine bowed well for Mountain Woods and all Teams rallied coming home.   The most impressive stat of the day had the first 6 groups come in without giving up a single point on the road,  stretching our lead from 13 to 23 points.   The final 2 groups closed the gap on their opponents as well and our squad finished with a 2 day total of 151.5 points,  a very impressive number vs an excellent opponent.  Great Job Team,  well see you all in round #3.
