The year-long race for the top spot in the Keepers X Season has been a close one and two of this year’s Lead Dogs ended up on the top of the heap when it was all said and done in today’s Keepers Kup Finale. Paul “Pablo” Cohen edged out Artie “So Close I Could Taste It” Aronoff by a mere 90 points to claim the Keepers Kopper Kup for 2017.
In the Keepers Kup Finale Event it was the impressive play of Kevin “You Got To Have The Right Attitude” Bass and Howard “Havana Stogie” Wollner with a pair of net 69’s who took the top honors earning the Silver Kup and substantial Kash Sweeps to go with it. With the North Course playing “Indian Summer Tough” they shot gross 39 and 40 respectively on the front side, their second nine, to reel in the top position. Apparently Pete set the pins in kind positions as Kevin parred 5 of his last 6 holes and Stogie 4 of his last 6 down the stretch. Tied third in the day’s kompetition with a couple of Net 70’s were “Kaptain” Keith Eig and Ronnie “I Have Seen The Light” Rosenberg.
With the Rusty Reset in place for the Finale, winning The Kup favors the top five guys in the standings who control their own destiny and only the guys in the top 12 going in can actually take the Keepers Kup. Artie, who has been coach up well all season by his team, gave it his all with a 73 net and a tie for 8th in the Finale but it proved a couple of shots shy of what was needed to catch Pablo.
Paul’s stellar play the last month-tied 3rd in the Keepers National Division of the Freudberg, 2nd in the Keepers Alt Shot Series with Harry Harrison, and a win in the Woodmont Member-Member with Mike Fisher vaulted him into the Lead Dog position going into the Finale and this proved enough to fend off field and claim The Kup.
