For the third year in a row Sabine and I played in the Punta Mita Member Guest Golf Event – this year as always it was a fun couple of days of golf and spending time with our Punta Mita Friends and their guests. This year they had the best turn out in Punta Mita Member Guest history with 40 teams participating. Great golf, food and drink were enjoyed by all in the 5th annual event. Punta Mita History was made with the first father son team victory at the event. Gary and Doug Antonoff managed to jump outto an amazing start firing a first round Sixty (60) in the Best Ball competition. They were pursued aggressively but carded asecond round 67 to nose out the team of Bobby Krugman and Tim Smith by one shot.
As is tradition partnered with my Neighbour Neill Manning and despite a promising Day 1 we could not scramble to to the Podium on day 2 and finished in the middle of the pack with a 66 – 69 : 145 some 8 strokes off 1st Place.
In the Ladies section we had the team of Donna and Margaret Antonoff almost making it a true family affair grabbing a slim one shot lead with a first round 71. It was however Robyn Ritchie and Lynn Grafton who played spoiler to the Antonoff sweep overcoming a 4 shot deficit carding a second round 67 for the victory. Sabine and Susan wrapped up the tail in the Ladies Section.
