Tampa Disc Slingers   September 3, 2010 at 10:12pm

Splash Made From Makeup Round

A new rule was established within the club that would allow members who met certain criteria to post scores for completed tournaments. This would result in fairness to the individuals who would like to get the opportunity to move up in the rankings. A huge splash was finally made when eligible members were able to challenge the top 3 scores from Weekly Informal 5 held at Limona. As you may know, our top 3 scores were:

Vinny Piperato +12
Will Parson +14
Joe Mangrum +16

Keith Sikes, Brandon Smith, and Chris Sikes were present to post a score and possibly capture points. They were accompanied by veterans Will Parson and Joe Mangrum who already had top 3 finishes and were hoping to keep it that way. Vinny Piperato, the Weekly Informal 5 champion, was at home hoping that his gold trophy would remain in tact as these 3 hopefuls took on the course this afternoon.

The front 9 seemed to cause a moderate amount of problems, but the Disc Slingers were able to keep their composure and escape with minor wounds. Some signature moments to point out was Joe Mangrum's birdie on the 5th and the fact that Chris Sikes managed to par 5 out of 9 holes, proving to be one his best performances. Will and Brandon were not far behind either.

The back 9 is where turmoil set in as the holes became longer and more unrealistic. There was only one man able to record a better score on the back 9 and that was Will. No birdies were made. When it was all said and done, damage was made to the top 3 when Chris Sikes played a great game and posted a +13. Now the top 3 scores look something like this:

Vinny Piperato +12
Chris Sikes +13
Will Parson +14

There are still eligible members that can post a score for Weekly Informal 5 and stir the pot some more.
