Tonight we played almost half our round after the sun went down so it is probably a good thing we only have 1 more week left . . . maybe we could do a Late Fall Glow league out there????? Just planting the seed!
This week we saw a pretty poor showing by the pro division . . . I know on my card we saw Terry Miller take a mulligan on a 15' missed putt that actually hit a tree, and then he doinked the mulligan off the right side chains ended up taking a 3 after being virtually parked on one of the harder holes on the course (#7 long). The next hole I (Mike Harrington) took my mulligan on my drive after hitting an early tree and leaving the disc about halfway up the fairway with an almost guaranteed 3. My second drive hit another tree and kicked left and I was left with a 60' approach which I missed my line by about 15' and hit a tree then some draintile about 10' from the basket that turned into a roller that went across the fairway and down into the hollow area to the left of #8 about 25' away which I proceeded to miss. So I turned a guaranteed 3 into a 4 by using my mulligan . . . nice choice. Jonny V then didn't pay attention and made used his mulligan on the next hole #9, which he missed both putts from about 20'. He wasn't real happy that the first one spit through the chains, so to have the second putt kick out wasn't any better.
The points race in the Pro Division is getting tight for sure, especially without Brad Weber there this week.
In the Semi Pro Division we saw a hot shooting Drew Retherford shoot a -9 which would have taken $7 cash in the Open Division, instead take home $16 in funny money for his round that beat the next best score (-6) by 3. Nice shooting Drew. Second place goes to "the other Drew" Griswold who shot a few shots worse than his average, but still had some distance between himself and 3rd place. The points race in this division is getting closer and closer as people keep fluctuating each week, there are serious battles for 1st and for 3rd.
In the Advanced Division we had an uncharacteristically light week on players . . . apparently some people had other things on their mind this week. Regardless we saw Zach Walczak shoot his best score in league (-10) to take down the 3 person division (including his dad Matt) who shot a -4 for the second place finish.
COME ONE COME ALL 10/19 IS DOUBLE POINTS NIGHT. BE THERE IF YOU ARE IN THE HUNT FOR YOUR DIVISION AND BRING A FRIEND AND HOPE THEY SHOOT A SCORE IN BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR CLOSEST COMPETITOR.
A special thank you to Terry for the free LED light this week for all competitors. Your are such a generous League Director and that was a nice gesture.
