R.Young & D.Dean Repeat As 2023 Harwood Two Man Champs!



Over this past weekend we held the Twenty Sixth Annual Harwood Plumbing & Heating Two Man Scramble Tournament at Highview Golf Course!


Our annual two-day event attracted a full field of 208 competitors once again this year. The teams had a few cloudy scares but played in some solid conditions overall and nice weather all weekend long! We had Practice Round tee times all-day Friday, Qualifying Rounds on Saturday from 7:30-9:30 & 1:00-3:00, and Final Round Shotguns at 8:30am & 1:45pm on Sunday. It was a bumping weekend for all at Highview!


Our 2023 Two Man Scramble Winners are the first repeat winners since 2015! This year's champions are none other than our 2022 winners; Rylan Young & Derek Dean (Other Previous Wins - '18 & '16). Capturing their fourth Harwood Two Man Championship as partners! The duo posted an outstanding Minus-11, 59 on Saturday. Leading by three strokes going into the Sunday Final Rounds. Groups prepared for some hotter weather, as well as trickier tees and hole placements on Sunday. Shooting from the Blue Tees - Young & Dean posted a solid Minus-1, 69 to finish the two-day event at 128 in a tie with 8-time winners, Nick Nauta & Dean Harrington. Coming into the clubhouse with a 62 on Saturday and 66 on Sunday, Nauta & Harrington forced a Sudden Death Playoff against Rylan Young & Derek Dean at the end of the Final Rounds.


Sudden Death Playoff Scenarios at Highview are played on Holes #1, 2, & 18 (Repeated if Needed). Starting on #1, Young/Dean & Nauta/Harrington all just missed the green off the tee. Both teams chipped on from a short distance, leaving Young & Dean with a short Par putt and Nauta & Harrington with a mid-range putt to push it to a second playoff hole. Nauta/Harrington both just missed their putts, allowing Young & Dean to tap in theirs to win the Playoff with a Par - 3 on the 1st Hole.


Congratulations to our 2023 Winners ~ Rylan and Derek!
