Flea, from Red Hot Chili Peppers, gets in some practice on the putting course.
The weather may have been cold, but a sold-out crowd of more than 140 golfers braved the chill at the 13th Annual Mix L.A. Open, sponsored by Guitar Center Professional, in Malibu, May 12. First place went to CCC Information Services (Richard Armijo, Phillip Armijo, Jim Hoover and Bernard Perry), second to Tascam (Tim Crable, Rob Joly, Jerry Klein and John Reda) and third to Sound Design Corporation (Paul Sandweiss, Ken Dahlinger, Cole Pensanti and Scott Spiegel). Tim Hoggart (Warner Bros.) won the Closest to the Pin Award, cruising around in a Porsche for the weekend, provided by The Auto Gallery. Jim Hoover (CCC Information Services) won the Longest Drive Contest, and Richard Armijo (CCC Information Services) took top honors in the Closest to the Pin contest.
