Week 16 results – it’s gonna be a close one!!!

Was it the hot and humid summery weather or perhaps it was the course setup – scoring was a bit “below par” this week as we race towards the end of our season. Nobody managed to post more than three pars in their round and there were more than a few “others” and “snowmen” posted.

Our top six teams continue to churn in the standings… Mitch and Larry Hull squeezed into first place by the narrowest of margins… two points … on the strength of taking 28 team points while James Litaker and Ken Steinbuch took 24.5 team points and fell to a close second place. Dustin / Casey held their spot – third place – despite their hard luck week losing to a resurgent Mike / Jonathan 69.5 – 20.5. Mitch / Larry started slow against Jamie / Chris losing the first three holes but won the final six holes on their way to the big 65 – 25 win that catapulted them into first place. James / Ken won the first four holes of their match against Zach / Justin and then promptly lost the next three. They played the last two holes even and won their match and stayed oh-so-close to first place with their 53 – 37 win.

Only TWO matches left…Next week’s schedule for the top 6: Larry and Mitch Hull face off against (league leading points getter Dustin) and Casey. Dustin gets two strokes; Larry and Casey play straight up. James / Ken play Mike / Jonathan. James gets SEVEN (??) strokes from Mike; Jonathan gives Ken one stroke. Christopher (first week playing “A”) / Jamie match up against Zach / Justin. Christopher gets three strokes from Zach; Jamie plays Justin straight up.

Closest to the pin / skins had only 14 players (half of you… really?) for a $70 pot … $28 near pin and $42 skins. Near pin on #6 goes to Tony Tanner (35′ 5″) who wins that $28 in spite of a three putt bogie to the lower tier pin position. For the second week in a row skins got divvied 4 ways ($10.50 each): Brian Wheaton parred the first hole; Mitch Hull had a tap in one foot birdie putt on #5; Larry Hull grabbed a skin with the only par on #6 (Thanks, Tony!) and welcome back to the winner’s circle Mike (Master of the Meadows) Lor who had the only birdie on the par 4 ninth hole.

A one sided match from the get-go DanO/Mike take the first four holes (and six of the first seven) in convincing fashion on their way to a big win
Mike/Jonathan regain credibility with a convincing win though Dustin/Casey hold their spot in third place (but lose ground on the league leaders)
Jamie/Christopher had a 5 point lead after four holes but a tap in birdie by Mitch on the fifth hole turned the tide and Mitch / Larry won the next five holes to cruise to a 65 -25 win and into first place
Brian played Lenny close and Harry carried the day as a late surge by Derrick wasn’t enough… Brian/Harry 55.5 – Lenny/Derrick 34.5
sub of last resort Russ & Bill couldn’t keep up with Average Arnie and Average Barney … looking forward to retiring the ghosts next week – come back healthy Yvon!
Zach played “up to par” and held off James but Ken (in the clutch) Steinbuch carried the day with yet another handicap busting round (38 net 29) to guide the team to a 53 – 37 win. James / Ken fell into second place but are only 2 points out of the lead
Tony (Near Pin) Tanner and Lou (The Giant Killer) Capello played steady golf and cruised to a 62-28 win
