Steve Kearns and Steve Karassik were a winning combination in Saturday's five-hole shootout that determined the Men's Division overall champs of the Valley Club Member-Member Shootout golf tourney.

Teams that placed in the five men's flights were placed in a five-hole shootout, which was won by Kearns and Karassik ($125 each). Men's runner-up team consisted of Jim Latta and Dick Coleman ($75).

In third place in the men's horse race were Todd Martin and Jeff Rust ($50 apiece).

The men's and women's overall champions and runner-up teams received framed paintings of Valley Club golf holes as their special prizes to wrap up the two-day tournament attracting 51 twosomes.

Women's overall champions were Melinda Elliott and Heather Flynn. The runner-up team in the June 24-25 tournament featured Margery Friedlander and Jane Hansen.

The players started Friday in a better-ball format, followed by Saturday's Chicago-system format that determined the top three placers in each of seven flights. Flight winners each received $200 golf credit in The Valley Club golf shop.
