The teams were chosen, the weather was magnificent and the players were ready to go. The 2017 version of The Ohashi Open was played under sunny skies on Sunday June 25. After several gruelling hours, the team of Bill Mitchell, Dennis La Placa, Gerald Renneberg and fan favourite Brad Blisner emerged victorious, pulling out a three shot victory over the nearest opponent.
Meanwhile in match play, #1 seed Brad Blisner will face the veteran Moe Takeuchi in what could be his toughest match in the season long event. Rob Currie will play Rich Odamura in the other top bracket match. On the south side of the draw, Aki Akizuki will square off against Bill Mitchell, who is continuing his strong play this season. In the other match, Gerald Renneberg will battle Roger Nakagawa.
