There were 46 players in the tournament. Choctaw Country Club’s next tournament is June 13, a two-person scramble/shamble with teams playing a scramble format the first nine holes and then playing a shambles format the final nine.
In the shambles, both teammates tee off and they pick the best tee shot and play their own ball individually from that point open.
The tournament is open to everybody. There will be live music from 7 to 10 p.m. featuring RearVue Mirror.
