Keepers Kahootz-Alternate Shot Series Finale Fore 2018

Posted on Updated on

Some things are worth waiting for but we might have tested the merit of that wisdom. as it took us four months before we finally got the Final Fore of the Keepers Kahootz Alternate Shot Series in the books.

There were four battle tested teams that survived the first three matches in May, June, and July and were still vying for the super kool trophies and a piece of the $750 in sweeps in the final two matches held this month.  Points scored in these matches would determine the final order of merit for the prizing.

The contestants for the Final Fore matches were:

Mike “Koach” Fisher and Ronnie “I Am Due” Rosenberg

Randy “Been There Before” Weiss and Mark “M.A.” Goldstein

Len “The Plumber” Goldman and Moe “The Kommish” Dweck

Steve “The Breeze” Lerman and Ron “Slow Glide” Edlavitch

The Plumber and The Kommish took the top prize by 1/2 a furlong

Giving six shots in the first of the Final Fore matches, Fisher and Rosenberg had their work cut out for them.  Closely kontested through the first six holes it was 3-3 heading to the 7th Tee.  There were no halved holes on the front side, in fact only two halved holes in the entire match.

But Mike and Ronnie started to assert themselves winning 5 of the next 7 holes from 7 to 13 taking kontrol of the match by four points.  Two forgetables on 14 and 15 gave Weiss-Goldstein some hope, but some forgetables of their own left them reeling and Fisher and Rosenberg closed out the match 11 to 7, setting a high bar to beat in the other match.

In the second match Lenny and Moe volleyed back and forth with Steve and Ron through the front 8 making the mini-turn up 4 1/2 to 3 1/2.  But on the back 10, The Plumber and The Kommish put on a Ham and Egg Routine that would make any Waffle House manager proud as they did not lose a hole the rest of the way.

With two holes to play they needed to will a half and a win to break through the 11 point barrier and snatch the whole kitten kaboodle.  That is what they did, grinding out the win 11 1/2 to 6 1/2.

We set a Keepers record with 24 teams, 48 players kompeting in this year’s Alternate Shot Series.  This format is fast, furious, and fun and will undoubtedly be back for a fifth iteration next spring.  I am sure there are a couple of teams already chomping at the bit for another opportunity to be the Foursomes Champions of The Keepers.
