The Keepers Season got off to a sizzling start as our guys kompeted for Kash Sweeps and Kup Points in the annual Keepers Pro-Schmo. Those with the best early season skills and a proper rapport with their Virtual Pros are kurrently at the top of the Keepers Kup Standings…at least for now.
In the American Division a new comer to the Keepers ranks, Wayne “New Person” Berson, shot a gross 78 and teamed with the iron-man Sungjae Im to shoot 59 and kapture first place. Wayne’s net eagle on 5 and a string of net birdies on 8, 9, 10, and 12 proved decisive.
Marc “Fine Grind” Birnbaum shook off any rust as he teamed with Cameron Smith to take second with net 61. Tied third in the division at net 62 were Rich “Kojak” Greenberg with Cameron Smith and Steve “Kontrolled Kurve” Lustig with Patrick Cantley. A bevy of kompetitors tied fifth at net 63 including Jon “Leave The Light On” Bortz with Sungjae Im, Peter “Through The Looking” Glass with Sungjae Im, Keith “Kaptin” Eig with Patrick Cantlay, Bobby “Jack Lalanne” Fogel with Cameron Smith, and Don “Mr. Tell” Greenberg with Sungjae Im.
American Division Winners
Arthur “I’m Getting The Hang of This” Dubin skorched the field with a little help from Danny Willett on the way to shooting a record net 57 on the first day of the competition. Obviously fresh greens suited them. Arthur had a run on the inward nine on 14, 15, 16, and 17 where he made natural pars that accounted for 7 shots under in that four-hole stretch.
Tied second at net 60 were Rick “Orange Line” Cohen with Cameron Smith and Ray “You Can Call Me ….” Thal with Sungjae Im. Tied fourth at net 61 were a couple of old war horses, Harry “Komeback Kid” Harrison and Steve “The Country Dentist” Keller both with Cameron Smith.
