Mixed Invitational Results | 2017

Rich Parsons and Janis Kapp Win Mixed Invite for Third Straight Year!

By Pat Payton | Sports Editor for the Journal Argus

A fun day with friends was the theme for this year's Mixed Invite. A fun round of golf spoiled only by a brief rainfall was followed by a tremendous meal accompanied by a dessert filled with local strawberries and great prizes.

Rich Parsons and his wife Janis Kapp won the annual Mixed Invitational golf tournament for the third straight year at the St. Marys Golf and country Club on Saturday, June 17.

Parsons and Kapp combined to shoot a two-over-par 74.

Couples Golf ChampionsThe Chapman format was used by the 86 golfers (43 teams) who took part. In this format, both teammates tee off, then they play each other’s tee shot. Once that is done, teams select a single ball to finish the hole with and play alternate shots from there.

Parsons gave a lot of the credit his wife for keeping the ball in play.

“Janis kept it in the fairway and hit it solid,” Parsons said. “Actually that was the key to winning.

“She also made some nice shots around the greens. She can play when she has to.”

Parsons also contributed. He canned his approach shot from 160 yards out on the par 4 No. 13 hole for an eagle 2. “It was one hop and in the jar - it was pretty cool,” he reported.

It was also worth a ‘skin.’

Parsons and Kapp combined for a birdie 4 on the par 5 No. 15 hole. It was worth a ‘skin’ as well.

Last year, Parsons and Kapp combined to shoot a two-under 70 to repeat as tourney champs. In 2015, the long-time St. Marys Golf & Country Club members topped the field with a score of 76.
