2022 has begun and the preseason Par-3 Challenge inducted a lot of new people to the RDUgolf Tour, and we couldn’t be happier!
Todays field of 40 golfers were put to the truest of tests:
Frost delays, rain all week, time changes, a stout wind on the back-9, and a closing stretch of holes which played TOUGH!
Being so early in the season, this event showed whose game is ready and who is waiting for the after-work range sessions of Spring!
After this test, this seasons competition should be fun!
