McBrides, Archers, Fabianis & Christin/Nichols Strike Gold in Rancho Mirage

The Springs hosted the Father/Daughter & Mother/Son for the second time May 6-8. Dina and Desi McBride each won gold balls with their children for the first time ; Dina with Parker, and Desi with Jordyn. As Dina noted, she hadn’t even won a gold ball in mixed with Desi (though that could change when they become eligible for husband wife 100 soon.)


The Senior father/daughter was won by unseeded Cassy & Cary Fabiani from NorCal. Cassy was a junior standout.

The Super Senior Father/Daughter was won by Lauren & Robert Archer.

My sister Eileen Christin won her first gold ball, playing with local legend (and my dad) Graydon Nichols (91). They won the Father/Daughter 80+ division.


Here are some photos of the youngest (Brett Buffington’s daughter Tatum, 11) and WT Mathes, 96 (with his daughter Myra O’Dell).
