In the face of threatening weather, over 40 Keepers showed up to stage our annual Keepers Pro Schmo with a little help from 8 of their virtual friends. Playing the “New North” the Keepers got to experience the changes to the front nine green complexes that have been under wraps all winter.
Top honors in the National League Division went to Ron “Big Sky” Hirschel who teamed with fiesty Ian Poulter to shoot Net 61 on their better ball. Tied second with Net 62 were Steve “Gordo” Gordon/Jon Rahm and Guy “Parfait” Berliner/Phil Mickelson.
In the American League it was Mike “Not Lew” Selis who carried Kevin Kisner on his back on their way to a shooting Net 62 to win their division. A bit of a traffic jam developed in second place with Net 63 involving Steve “Peleton” Lustig/Kiradech Aphibarnrat, Len “The Plumber” Goldman/Justin Harding, and Bobby “Jack Lalanne” Fogel/Kiradech Aphibarnrat. Fortunately no air bags were deployed.
The Net Pars or Better Kash Game raised the first $350 toward The Keepers year-end military charity donations and paid out some walk around Kash Money to six Keepers who led this kompetition.
Net Pars or Better Payouts:
1st Ron Hirschel 24 Points $100 kash
T-2nd Paul Cohen and Mike Selis 20 Points $75 kash each
T-4th Len Goldman, Sol Gordon, and Rich Greenberg 19 Points $30 kash each
