Jun Ho Won Seals 2015 Hickam Invitational Golf Tournament!

2015 Hickam Invitational Golf Tournament- Mamala Bay Golf Course, September 4 - 6.

9.6.2015-- The 54-Hole Hickam Invitational was held at Mamala Bay Golf Course on Sept. 4-6 after being off the tournament schedule for more than 3 years.  The golf course was in great shape despite the recent storms and flooding on Mamala Bay.  The five flight, 123 player field turned in some great scores.  Kyosuke Hara carded an 8-under 64 on day two and was matched on day three by eventual champion Jun Ho Won on day three with a 64 of his own.  The Champ Flight had seven golfers finish the 54-hole tournament under par! Jun Ho Won finished (-12), Kyosuke Hara (-10), Tyler Ota (-7), Dalen Yamauchi (-5), Kyle Suppa (-3), Andy Okita (-2) and David Saka (-2).

The A-Flight Champion, John Mun finished the tournament with a tree day total of 232. Followed by Allen Martinez and Arnold Fukumoto both carding a 237 total.  Kimo Greene finished fourth at 238 and Wendell Kop rounded out the top five with a 240 total.

The B-Flight Champion, Brian Pang shot 233 for the tree days and won by two strokes over 2nd place finishers Leighton Uyeda and Sean Hamada, both at 235.  William Enomoto at 236 and Dale Dennison at 237 rounded out the top five positions.  The highlight of the tournament in the B-Flight was the first round Ace by Glenn Hasebe on hole 12 in the opening round.

The Senior Flight Champion, Carl Ho shot an impressive three round total of 221 winning over Richard Mendez (230) by 9 strokes.  David Hamada finished in 3rd place at 233.  Martin Black (236), John Lohr (239) and Bob Starkman (243) rounded out the top 6 finishers in the Senior Flight.

The Super Senior Flight was a nail biter when Phil Anamizu birdied the 3rd extra hole to win over David Kawahara in a playoff.  Both finished the tournament with a three day total of 232.  Mervin Matsumoto finished in 3rd place, 4 strokes back at 236.  Jeff Remmington shot a three day total of 238 to finish in fourth.  Ed Hawkins at 245 and Richard Sieradzki with a 247 rounded out the top 6 in the Super Senior Flight.

Overall, the tournament was a great success.  The 123 player field had a great weekend of weather with little to no wind, making the course play just a little more forgiving.  The course held up after the recent storms and was a good test of golf.  We certainly look forward to bringing this event back to the tournament schedule in the years to come.

Congratulations to those that won and we certainly look forward to next year’s Hickam Invitational!
