When it was all said and done, only the team of Moe Takeuchi, Art Nishi, Gord Mizuno and Tom Yesaki was able to complete the round without losing a yellow ball as they cruised to a 10 shot margin to win the 2016 Yellow Ball Tournament. Rich Odamura, Dave Wolsey, Martin Kuramoto and the day's top performer, Isao Kuramoto finished a distant second. The yellow ball seemed to be a curse for many of the golfers as they posted double digit scores with the sacred yellow ball in play.
In other club news, Dave Wolsey came from behind to defeat Brad Blisner to capture the final match play spot. He will be in tough against top seed Rich Odamura.
