Keepers Alternate Shot Series Finals 2017 Results

Posted on Updated on

The Final Fore of the Keepers Alternate Shot Series is always a spirited affair as it pits four two-man teams against each other in a round-robin series of three 9-hole Alternate Shot Matches on the North Course to determine our Finest Foursomes Team for 2017.

Experience matters as the Cherner Automotive LLC of Herbie and Stewart was making it’s third straight appearance in this Final Fore Kompetition with the notion that this time they would get it right.  They had to face a formidable foe of Harry “Sifford” Harrison and Paul “I Got One Of These Already” Cohen as well as pesky challengers in the teams of Jimmy “My Fairway or the Highway” Polsky and Barry “Serenity” Minkoff and Mark “‘A’ Says It All” Goldstein and Randy “I Am Getting The Hang Of This” Weiss.

In the first match the Cherner LLC handled the Goldstein-Weiss Konstellation 6 1/2 to 2 1/2 on the front to set an early tone.  Harrison-Cohen was not to be intimidated as they won the last four holes against Polsky-Minkoff on the way to a 6 to 3 win in their first match.  It was sizing up to be a two horse race.

The second match on the back of the North proved pivotal as the two leading teams faced off with only a 1/2 point separating them.  But hope was dashed early as the Cherner Group showed flawless Foursomes play winning the first three holes to break free and then put it on cruise control adding 3 1/2 points from 14 to 18 to win this match decisively 6 1/2 to 2 1/2.   Goldstein-Weiss slipped by with a 5 to 4 win over Polsky-Minkoff in the what was looking like the match for third.

Cherner-Cherner  13    Harrison-Cohen  8 1/2    Goldstein-Weiss  7 1/2    Polsky-Minkoff  7

The final match went back to the front of the North and the Automotive Group wasted no time winning the first four holes over Polsky-Minkoff to get all four hands firmly around winning hardware. Playing hard for second Harry buried a 25-footer on the 7th to lock down that position for Harrison-Cohen at the end of the day with a 5 1/2 to 3 1/2 win over Goldstein-Weiss.
