Another week, another team climbs into first place. Dustin / Casey sit on top going into the last week of the “initial round robin”… Now that I’ve surmised that we cannot mathematically run a five team round robin over four weeks (without a bye week) I’ve decided that we will extend the season an extra week – and the top SIX teams will play a five week round robin that will almost certainly decide our league champion. The other 8 teams will also play 5 matches and leaves open the possibility of a team climbing the ranks into “the money” … if you remember, our payouts for this season:
- (random team pick #1) $130
- (random team pick #2) $80
So… like a game of musical chairs one of our top 6 will be left out of the money… but we’ll also be paying out to two teams randomly… so half of our 14 team league will get at least some cash back…
Speaking of cash… This week’s closest to the pin proved to be quite a contest… 4 of you posted a number… Lenny started out with a 43’8″ effort… Mike “Master of the Meadows” Lor topped that with a 25’4″ shot only to be topped by Mitch Hull’s 21’1″ tee ball…But ultimately it was the Champ – Daniel Eignor – who trumped the field with a 6’4″ dart good for $36. His birdie effort didn’t fall, and with that newcomer Kenny Joseph’s birdie on #3 wins himself a $27 skin. Harry Saslow got edged out of a skin by the aforementioned Master Lor who matched Harry’s birdie on #7 with one of his own. Shed no tears for Mike Lor as his birdie on #9 takes the other half of the $54 skins pot for himself … a $27 reward to go along with his record setting season best gross 28 after sinking the birdie 3 on the 9th hole.
