Saturday’s Keepers Ham n Egg was a tightly played culinary event which pitched 14 Two-Man teams against each other in an every-other-hole-your-score-counts format. The play was from the Gold Tees on a North Course with some attitude. The overnight rains took some of the fire out of the fairways and made the rough gnarly so wandering drives paid a price. The greens were cut and rolled before play and were at least uprights (11) on the stimpy meter. Sneaky Pete had a few cliff hanger pin placements (#3, #4, #7, #14, and #18) where if you two putted you were picking up shots on the field. With only 80% handicaps given the scoring was going to tough.
Given all of that some yolks were broken and a couple of flips were done as well but in the end the teams of Kaptin Keith Eig/Gary Abrahams and Sky King Lipnick/Marc Fleisher bested the field with a net score of 69 to earn 250 Keepers Kup Points and $75 in Kash Sweeps per man. Tied for third were the pairings of Jim Boom Boom Polsky/Barry The Driving Machine Minkoff and Tom Ein/Rob Shesser with a net 70 for 125 Keepers Kup Points and $25 in Kash Sweeps per man. Fifth alone were Neal I Got A New Number Bobys/Harry The Hipster Harrison with net 71 to gather 50 Keepers Kup Points each.
The Keepers Kup Standings tightened considerably with these developments as Kaptain Keith closed to within 21 points of Neal Bobys at the top of the heap. Gary Abrahams, Bobby Lipnick, and Jimmy Polsky are now an established presence in the top 10 in the standings.
In the Players Pool Kash Kompetition it was individual low net with the same 80% handicap adjustment. Howard Where Did He Come From Isaacson had 7 net birdies and 2 net eagles to offset a serious number of net doubles and bogies on his way to an 89-18-71 net to win the top prize of $100. Tied for second at net 72 were Neal Bobys (86-14-72) with five net birdies and a net eagle and Howard The Aged One Wollner (83-11-72) with six net birdies and a net eagle earning $40 each. In a two way tie for 4th were Marc Fleisher and Gary Abrahams at net 73.
Thanks to all the guys who participated in the Players Pool which added another $240 to our collection pot that is now at $1500 to fund the year-end Keepers donations to the SMGA/Wounded Warriors and Folds of Honor Foundations.
