In what turned out to be a tight battle for the first ever NYSABA Annual Golf Tournament, Team FMC, led by Captain Phil Luers, pulled off a very tight victory by one stroke.
The Tournament, held August 28, was declared a roaring success by organizer Cris Wunder, NYSABA Board Member.
"We raised funds to expand our membership services and education outreach. Everyone had a great time," said Wunder. "Mark your calendars for the last Thursday of August for next year's tournament."
