Big shout out to the team from the Dragons for winning the NCGA Four-Ball Net Championship this year. Chris Chong and Thomas Yee had great rounds at Poppy Hills and Quail Lodge to capture the top prize, one of the first Federation teams to win an NCGA championship. Nice going, guys! More details.

At the "Memorial Day" tournament hosted by the Sacramento Chinese Golf Club, Rocky Yee passed the gavel to Sheila Lee to become the next Federation President, our first woman President. Rocky has been leader for 4 years during which the Federation has set up rotations for the next few years, held tournaments in Tucson and Maui, and has been a very stable force championing golf among friends. We all thank Rocky for a terrific tenure.
