The team of Victor Tocwish and Bill Stanley were crowned champions of the inaugural Legends Division of The Shootout. “Once we figured out that our collective age was above 110 years, I knew we had a good chance of winning” said Victor Tocwish. “I finished dead last in 2003 with Al Paszyna and now I’m an Invitational Shootout Champion. You can’t imagine how much this means to me!”
Mike Troy became the first player in Shootout history to card a hole-in-one, acing the 130-yard 12th hole with a 9-iron. “We knew it was close” said partner Bob Aikens. “But kind of lost it in the sun when it hit the green. For awhile, we thought it was lost, but I finally found it in the hole and everyone started going crazy.”
Thus begins the legend of Mike “Ace” Troy. “I’m not much of a golfer, but the game does seem to come easy to me” said Troy.
Under brilliant blue skies and breezy conditions, the team of Mike Howley and Scott Pommo outlasted 86 golfers, the largest field in Tournament history to win the 2006 Invitational Shootout at Water’s Edge. The win erased twelve years of frustration for Howley, whose previous finishes with Pommo since 2002 have been disappointing at best.
“I told Scott before the round that I had a good feeling” said Mayor Howley. “We knew that this was a course that suited our game, we just needed to execute. Thankfully, we got off to a great start, reaching five under by the tenth hole. We just tried to hold on after that point.”
