Men’s League Week 7 Results

The team of Thomas Chairvolotti / Daniel Eignor have dislodged Jamie Wilson / Christopher Stevens from the top spot… but only by 3 points (that’s one hole in one match… virtually a tie since we’ve already played 63 holes of competition!) Seven teams are over the 400 point mark for the season so it’s still anybody’s ball game. Four of those seven teams have a player in his first season playing at MGC… New blood!

Despite the “British Open” like conditions (hard pan fairway lies and unreceptive greens demanded that shots be rolled onto rather than flown to the target) we still managed to have almost half of the field (17 of 36) shoot net par (29) or better… Great scoring you all! Newcomer and full member Jonathan Crane (team 18) shot a blistering (no pun intended in this hot weather) 33 net 23Mike Chairvolotti might be finding the touch again after shooting a 34 net 26 and his son Thomas (now playing to a 2 handicap) was just a stroke behind with a 31 net 27.

Skins were divvied up once again – this week by THREE… James Williams’ birdie on #5 brings him a $23 dividend; young ace Thomas Chairvolotti’s birdie on #6 got him his latest share of the pool; finally no one else could stick it and sink it on “Little River” #8 except for Mike Lor – he took the final skin of the day. Next week we play on “Towards Home” the 170 plus yard par 3rd hole… But where will the tees be?
