Well Wednesday proved to be as rainy as rainy can get (tropical storm Ida dropped 1.75 inches of rain) so now our week 17 matches are scattered – we got three matches completed Thursday; we’re anticipating more matches today and Saturday.
We need to complete these matches ASAP as next Wednesday is the last match followed by our annual league dinner. Fall league starts September 15… are you playing???
At the top of the standings – Mitch and Larry Hull faced off against Dustin and Casey. It took 7 holes before Mitch / Larry won a hole, and overall the match for them went one hole won, six holes lost, two holes tied and the point totals reflected that: final score Dustin/Casey 72, Mitch/Larry 18.
The other top 6 match: Zach / Justin edged Christopher / Jamie by the slimmest of margins… 46-44 : the medal play (stroke) totals provided the margin of victory.
