The 2nd Annual Cut Invitational went off without a hitch. We kickstarted it off at Newport Beach Golf Course (aka 'The Mats'). Players went off in groups of 8, and individual stroke play was the format with closest to the pin contests on 7 of the 9 holes. Our closest to the pin winners from each hole had a shootout on Number 3 to determine the winner of a brand new Nation MFG Surfboard, and bragging rights for the year. Ben Taylor, of Par 69 Golf, took the win stuffing a wedge close and claiming the board.
From there we cleaned up and strolled over to The Country Club in Costa Mesa for fine appetizers and hosted cocktails. Stories were told, laughs were had, putts were rolled on our custom Golden Tee, and we prepared for the big event the next day at Strawberry Farms Golf Club.
We awoke to beautiful clear skies on Thursday October 18th. The stage was set. Expectations were high after our 1st Annual Invitational. This year we were able to garner support from the likes of Coors Light to keep our patrons quenched. The good times rolled. Enjoy the video, and make sure you clear the calendar when we announce dates for the 3rd Annual Cut Invitational!
