<< Mini-golf -- #57 Phi Kappa Blanca LVIII >>


 

Tournament #56, Phi Kappa Blanca 3/26/94
NCSU Student Union, Raleigh, NC
TD: Robert Singletary
Section: U1800
Time Control: 40/90, G/30
<Crosstable>


While I've had several +2 =1 showings in these Under 1800 tournaments, this was a true breakout tournament for me. Not only is it my 1st 3 win finish, but also my 1st win against Joan. Looking at the cross table, this was also one of those strange occurrences where there were two or more players with a perfect score. As popular as this tournament was, this was not entirely uncommon and Robert was always nice enough to award a full 1st place prize to both players when it occurred. In the last round, Robert Folts, who had beaten me in the last tournament played against Mike McHale (a future rival) on the top board, and I played against and beat the top 1.5, Joe Swindler.
