1979 MEN'S PRELIMINARY 2

I have limited information on this event, I do know that Dwight Stones won with 49 points and the four events he won. Larry Bowa was second and I am somewhat certain of the places for 3rd, 4th and 5th. Lanny Wadkins became the only male golfer to compete in U.S. Superstars. John Walker used the trip to the Bahamas to celebrate his honeymoon.
