The 2018 Royal & Ancient Champions

The 44th Royal & Ancient featured 75 teams competing this year and during the first round, scoring conditions proved to be very good with over half of the field shooting in the 60's. Friday's first-round scores were highlighted by the teams of Scott Buhl/Ryan Buhl and Rock Edwards/Dan Williams tied for the lead at 62 (-10), followed by the defending champions Fred Webster/Steve Potter and Michael Holling/John Embree right behind the leaders at 64 (-8).

With overnight thunderstorms making the final round contested with lift, clean and place, scoring for the final round was much more volatile. A few hours ahead of the leaders, the pace for the day was being set by J.D. Wright/Chad Thomas with a final round of 63 (-9), leaving them in the clubhouse at -13 for the tournament. With -13 in the clubhouse, the team of Bob Schriver/Ben Perks was starting to get things rolling on the back nine with 5 birdies and posting a final round score of 64 (-8), eclipsing the lead by one and posting -14 in the clubhouse. With the overnight leaders both struggling, the team of Dan Huber/Eric Mogentale was off to a fast start with a 30 (-6) on the front nine, bringing them to -12 for the tournament entering the back nine. With an eagle on #10, they now had the lead at -14 with 8 holes to play. Meanwhile, the defending champs, Webster/Potter birdied holes 10, 13, and 14 to get to -13 and within striking distance. After a bogey by Huber/Mogentale on #14, we had a 3-way tie for first place at -13. Both teams birdied #15 to get to 14 under par and set the stage for an exciting finish. Huber/Mogentale proceeded to birdie #16 and #17 to take a 2 shot lead with one hole to play. With a solid par on #18, Dan Huber and Eric Mogentale secured the title and were crowned 2018 Royal & Ancient Champions.

A mid-Iron second, over a nasty hazard, with more trouble right of the green,
tests your technique, your equipment, your fitting, and your confidence.


A Hybrid has the forgiveness,
and deeper centre of gravity this shot needs.
But some golfers struggle mentally with the
need to strike the ball a descending blow
with a Hybrid.
That’s why some manufacturers have
created Crossovers or Hybrid-Irons.
Mentally it is easier to think about,
and execute, a slightly descending
blow with this club.

If there’s an area of your approach shot game from the Fairway that punishes you too often,
there’s potential for scorecard improvement. Use the right fitted equipment with the right technique,
and you’ll be able to take the challenge on with a greater chance of success.
Spend 45 minutes with us. Let’s make a difference.


If you’ve already shown the athletic ability to get to 90 or threaten that score,
then it’s highly likely that we can help you improve your swing quickly to the point that you’re in the low 80’s.
The question is how quickly and easily?


If that’s a golf experience that appeals to you, then please don’t wait.
Start the journey to hitting even better golf shots.
