36th Trans-Miss Four-Ball Winners

Vinson and Davis Claim Victory at 36th Trans-Miss Four-Ball Championship

Van Herpe and Pouliot emerge as Senior Champions; Hardin and Mokler victorious as Super Senior Champions.

championship-flight-winners super-senior-flight-winners senior-flight-winners

 The final day of the 36th Trans-Mississippi Four-Ball Championship was met by another cool morning, with periodic showers and drizzle consuming much of the forecast.  With tournament officials having suspended play Wednesday evening due to darkness at 6:15 pm local time, competitors in the Senior and Super Senior Divisions returned to complete a short collection of holes on the front and back nines at Forest Highlands’ Canyon Course.


With play resumed at 7:30 am local time, competitors still on the golf course grinded through their remaining holes in an effort to avoid the 36-hole cut and compete in the third and final round.  The Super Senior Division cut included teams posting a two-day total of 149, seven-over par, for fourteen total teams.  In the larger Senior Division, the eventual mid-morning cut included teams posting a two-day total of 147, five-over par, landing 17 teams in the final round.


While a majority of the Senior and Super Senior fields would see a short-break ahead of their final round, the youthful Championship Field began final round play, having completed second round play the previous day.  A later start to the morning proved beneficial for Fort Worth’s Blake Vinson and Beau Davis as they began their front side with a birdie-filled 29, en route to a 7-under par 64, the low score on the day.


Vinson and Davis credited their success in the final round – and throughout the championship – to complimentary play by both partners.  In the final round, the partnership contributed evenly – nine holes a piece – to their four-ball score.  “We got it going early,” Davis said, “and we managed to contribute equally throughout the round… We stumbled a bit on the back and didn’t think it would be enough.”  Despite their reservations leaving the scoring area as clubhouse leaders, Vinson and Davis would quickly learn that their final round push was enough to take the Championship Division.


Tied heading into Thursday morning as final round co-leaders, Ben Blundell and Jordan Cook both from Oklahoma City, Okla. and Danny Licursi, Thousand Oaks, Calif., paired with Bowen Osborn of Burbank, Calif., both got off to slower than anticipated starts, with the groups posting one-over and one-under front nine scores, respectively.  Consistent posting of pars and periodic bogeys along the back nine meant the 36-hole lead held by both teams would diminish, resulting in an eventual five shot margin of victory for Vinson and Davis.


Having completed second round play ahead of their Senior counterparts Thursday morning, the Super Senior Division would crown champions next.  Carrying a one-shot lead into the final round, the California tandem of Gary Hardin and Greg Mokler capitalized on five birdies through their final 18, led largely by the steady play of Gary Hardin.  Seeking to make up ground close behind were another team of Californians in Dave Sheff of Dana Point and Rich Tolly of Laguna Hills.  While the latter pairing exchanged birdies in an effort to make up ground, both teams would go on to post final round scores of 68, 3-under par and finish one-two in their division.


Rounding out final round pairings were the Senior Division, led after two rounds by co-leaders Steve Van Herpe, Temecula, Calif. and Dan Pouliot, Burbank, Calif., paired against Lawrence Field, Tulsa, Okla. and Murphy Mitchell, Scottsdale, Ariz., who both sat at 11-under, 131.  The stellar play that saw both teams beat par over the first two rounds was humbled by an afternoon of more consistent play with barrages of pars, along with intermittent and untimely bogeys.


In similar fashion to the storyline in the Super Senior Division, the younger Senior leaders would eventually only separate themselves by one-stroke to finish as champions and runners-up. Eventual champions Van Herpe and Pouliot would post a 1-under 70, edging runners-up Field and Mitchell by a single stroke.  Despite fine play by several teams in the Senior Division, Arizona residents Jeff New and Phil Phinny posted the low Senior round of the day, a solid 3-under 68, allowing them to grab fourth place.


Despite difficult weather conditions, the Trans-Miss Golf Association and host Forest Highlands were able to contest each round of the championship as originally intended.  A significant thank you goes out to the golf course agronomy staff at Forest Highlands’ Canyon Course, whose tireless efforts allowed the championship to be played in great conditions.  Further, the Trans-Miss Golf Association extends its thanks to the membership and staff at Forest Highlands for their collective efforts in hosting the championship and being gracious hosts throughout.

Forest Highlands to host 2019 U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur

Forest Highlands Golf Club in Flagstaff, Ariz., has announced they will play host to the 2019 U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur on September 14-19.

Forest Highlands features two courses: Canyon, a 1986 design by Jay Morrish and Tom Weiskopf that ranks 78th on the Golfweek’s Best Modern Courses list, and Meadow, a 1999 Weiskopf design. After 36 holes of stroke play, the 132-player field will be cut to the low 64 scorers for match play.

The U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur, which debuted in 1987, is open to players 25 and older who have a Handicap Index of 9.4 or better.

Forest Highlands has hosted three other USGA events: 2014 U.S. Girls’ Junior (won by Princess Mary Superal), 2006 U.S. Mid-Amateur (Dave Womack) and 1996 U.S. Junior Amateur (Shane McMenamy).

“Forest Highlands is pleased to have been selected by the USGA to host the 2019 U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur,” said Robert Scott, club president. “We are proud of our two championship courses and honored to work with the USGA in crowning another national champion at Forest Highlands.”

Staging Your Home

From Realtors to bloggers to HGTV, we all hear about the need to get creative to attract prospective buyers to home listings. If you are preparing to sell your home this season it is important to remember that buyers often cannot see past personal taste and distractions when touring a home – and how easy it is to get your home in the best shape possible.
In the National Association of Realtors’ new 2015 Profile of Home Staging, 96 percent of Realtors who have experience assisting buyers thought that staging had an impact on buyers at least some of the time. Not only are the visual results dramatic, the financial results are proven to help sellers beat the market.

Tips to remember when getting ready to sell your home:

  • Depersonalize
    • Remove clutter, photos and kids art from the mantle, refrigerator and tabletops.
    • Hang new and fresh artwork to help simplify décor.
    • Pack up unnecessary items and furniture before you show the house.
  • Declutter
    • This includes furniture that blocks any walkways, is unnecessary or is oversized and may make a room appear smaller.
    • Stage rooms for their intended purposes.
    • Remove extra items from countertops and the floor.
  • Clean up
    • Make any outstanding repairs.
    • Apply a fresh coat of paint
    • Clear all windows, allowing for the best views and most light to enter.
    • Replace worn carpets or rugs
    • Unpleasant smells like cigarettes, pets, or litter boxes can be an immediate turn off to buyers.
    • Remember the importance of curb appeal; add blooming flowers near the front door and trim the landscaping and grass.
    • Make sure all lights are working and have new bulbs.
    • New appliances, fixtures, cabinets, and countertops always appeal to buyers.

When preparing to list your home and take professional photos, take a few snapshots of your home first. This will give you a good idea of what the camera can capture, and what buyers may see as distracting. Most buyers will view photos and listings online before viewing a property in person. If you find items or blemishes distracting chances are buyers will have the same reaction when viewing your home’s professional photos.

The Forest Highlands Realty team are experts at marketing homes and our community, and are a great resource to turn to when preparing to sell and stage your home.   Please reach out to our team if we can be of service.
