Thunderbird Hills North and South

Huron, Ohio

October 2-3, 2004 

They say history repeats itself, and it did this year in the second season of The Mulligan Tour.  Last year, frontrunner Dave Hawk led going into the Tour Finale, but finished at the back of the back and nearby competitor Gregg Roberts rallied to win the 2-day major and take home the coveted Tour Championship.  Would a similar situation occur in 2004 or would players learn from last yearís mistakes?

Going into the event, Englishman Darren Parkes led the Tour, albeit by a narrow margin.  Lurking behind him was the solid veteran Chuck Nagy, and the young newcomer Dennis Beno.  Darren had a statement round on the first day, weathering the difficult conditions and shot a terrific net 79.  This could have demoralized other competitors, but not Chuck and Dennis.  Dennis quietly shot a net 70 and showered Darren with beers in the clubhouse after the round.  But Sunday was a new day, and the pressure of completing his miracle turnaround season came down in Greg Norman-esque style.  Darren struggled and shot a gross 88 on what is a traditionally friendly Thunderbird Hills South.  The Commissioner is currently investigating allegations of club tossing and foul language on the part of Mr. Parkes and fines could be handed down soon.

Meanwhile, Dennis Beno saw an opportunity and took full advantage of it by shooting a gross 87, putting him at 2 under par for both days.  Dennis has a lot of raw talent and anyone who plays with him can see that.  Dennis captured the 2 day title and leap frogged a freefalling Darren Parkes to win the event and become the 2004 Mulligan Tour Points Champion.  Great job Dennis!

Chuck Nagy suffered through a mild case of jet and tequila lag as he returned from Mexico late Friday night.  He held it together through the wind and rain on Saturday and survived a Saturday night on Kellyís Island to come back strong on Sunday.  Chuck ended up at 1 under for the 2 day event and also passed Darren on the Points Leaderboard for 2nd place.  Chuck was helped by a pin shot on Day 2 as well as both Long Drives which let him edge Darren for 2nd place by 3 points.

Rookie Bob Donay posted a good showing by putting together 2 consistent rounds and finished in 3rd for the event.

Darren Parkes ended up in 3rd place for the season and deserves our congratulations for his dramatically improved play.  Darren you give hope to all of us and it just goes to show that if you work hard and practice, that your game can turnaround.  Rob Parolin, who only played in a few events this year, also had a drastic improvement over last year as a result of a series of golf lessons.

As you know, $2 from each event went to the year-end prize pool.  The total amount paid out to the Top 3 was $284.
