Links Course Report

4:40 PM -- Well, hey! It's pretty much the weekend, and we almost forgot to report the results of our annual golf tourney at Heavy Reading's Links Executive Summit 2006.

Our resident golf semi-pro, Heavy Reading sales director Dave Williams, reports back that we had exquisite weather on the Sandpiper golf course in Santa Barbara. "What a great course and the weather cooperated more than anyone could ask," writes Williams. "Clear sunny day, temp high 70's, very light breeze, and the visibility up and down the coast was endless."

Anyway, according to Dave, probably one of the most scenic holes was the par 3 #11 which was facing the ocean. "170 yrds straight downhill -- about a 100 ft drop -- with unobstructed view of the Ocean and cliffs. Truly pebble Beach-esk."

Spoken like a true Californian. The results for the day were as follows:

Third Place, 4 under par: Second Place, 5 under par
  • James Barnette, Partner, The Scott Group
  • Hirofumi Ogawa, Manager, Mitsubishi Corp.
  • Crick Waters, VP Product Strategy, Duality Inc.
  • Chris Young, CIO, Riverfast Networks
First Place, 7 under par
  • Matt Lane, Marketing Manager, HP Inc. (NYSE: HPQ)
  • Michael Thompson, Operations Director, Cisco Systems
  • Joseph Weinman, VP Strategy and Emerging Services, AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T)
  • Steve Zhang, CEO, Asianinfo Technologies
Thanks and congratulations to everybody who participated!
