Future Champions Golf held one of its most exciting events out at Primm Valley Golf Club on both the Desert and Lakes courses. The picturesque fairways and tee shots coupled with the fast and undulating greens to make for some excellent scoring conditions which would reward those who took risks and punished those who played it too safe. The weather made this weekend a tough test with two lightning delays during round 1 of play. Day 2 saw two hours of steady rain but the scores were still very good! Nice work to all competitors for playing in some tougher conditions than usual for west coast spring play. With over 200 players in the field, the FCG Las Vegas Championship has become one of the most popular events on the FCG Tour. Without further ado, we’ll begin the champion spotlight and event recap.
