The 2018 FSC Member Partner was played on June 9th & 10th at Riverwood and Eagle Ridge Golf Clubs. Thirty teams were divided into 5 flights consisting of 6 teams each. The teams played three nine hole matches at Riverwood on Saturday and two nine hole matches at Eagle Ridge on Sunday. Each match was worth ten points, one point for each hole won and a additional point going to the match winner. The five flight winners were invited to an alternate shot shootout on the 18th hole which was turned into a par 3. The winner of the shootout was crowned the 2018 FSC Member Partner Champion.

In the 1st Flight, John Curry and Lou Masini were able to accumulate 31 of the possible 50 points over the 5 matches to win the first flight over Mike and Lance Johnson who had a 5 match total of 29 points.
Despite an impressive 5th match taking 8 out of the possible 10 points Scott Hammond and Wes Davis (29.5 points) finished in second place in the 2nd flight behind JD Mann and his partner Chris Gardner. (30.5 points)
Steady play in the 3rd flight lead the Rodney Jeffrey and Dean Debardelaben (28 points) team in to the championship shootout over the second place team of Jim and Kemp Mattocks. (27 points)
After a solid first three matches at Riverwood Bruce and Tami Bright (30 points) were able to hold off the rest of the 4th flight by a point and a half. Andy Baker and Darrell Canady managed to pull out second place with a 5 match point total of 28.5.
The 5th flight was also won by a single point. Willie Strickland and Bobby Bryant had a total of 28.5 points to join the shootout. Robert Hostetter and Scott Distler finished in second at 27.5 points.
At the conclusion of the 5th match with the flight winners determined, the participants were asked to come to the converted 18th fairway for the alternate shot shootout. After the first round 3 flight winners remained. With two of the three teams safely on the putting surface the teams of Mann/Gardner and Bright/Bright would have to putt there way to victory. JD Mann rolled a lag putt close enough for his partner Chris Gardner to tap in the winning par putt.
Congratulations to the 2018 Member Partner champions JD Mann and Chris Gardner!
