In the co-mingled Keepers/Young Guns Net 2-Man Team 4-Club Kompetition (that is a mouthful) we had 24 guys trying to play the front of the South with limited provisions. As is always the case this leads to some creative choices for the quiver as guys decide how important their putter is, what attack clubs to carry, how to get to an attack position off the tee, and what they hell they are going to hit on the par 3’s. We saw it all today in a very tightly bunched field.
At the end of the day Kaptin Keith Eig and Monroe “Roe” Brett bested the field by one shot with a score of even par 35. Kaptin played with 3 wood, 8 iron, PW, and Sand Iron (doing double duty as his putter, apparently with great proficiency). Roe played with the same 4 clubs he plays with every day. The key was the birdie net eagle by Kaptin Keith to a very tough pin back left on #6.
There were five teams at one-over 36 in a logjam tie for second. Michael “Long Ball” Cherner/Barry “Where Have You Been” Minkoff, Steve “Lead Dog” Keller/Jim “Boom-Boom” Polsky, Michael Levin/Bobby “Sky King” Lipnick, Jamie “Carrot Top” Cohen/Billy “Billy B” Burak/, and Art “Krieg” Blitz/Moe Mish all found ways, albeit different paths, to get to 36.
Billy B had the very rare 3-3Wood-3 on #5 for a net eagle that gave his team a bit of hope. Krieg Blitz made an amazing par net eagle on #3 after a less than full driving effort left him a good 385 out. Ice water in his veins he rolled in the hybrid putt from about 19 feet to right the ship for team Blitz/Mish. Keller/Polsky redefined the ham and egg approach playing around at least 4 X’s on their card.
Lots of could have/should haves ensued over dinner. But the tale of the tape left the proceeds in the hands of Eig/Brett.
