In the Bent Phase American Division it was a very tight race for the top five spots. Barry “The Barrister” Haberman handled his business with an eagle on 3 and birdies on 5 and 6 on this way to a fine Gross 76-Net 68 to win the division by a kouple of shots. Alan “Lowl” Levine took second with an impressive Net 70. There were four tied at Net 71 including Artie “The Sundance Kid” Aronoff, Marc “Fine Grind” Birnbaum, Jeff “My Aim Is True” Cossman, and Peter “Through The Looking” Glass to share third.
The National Division was a fireworks show with the top five finishers all in the 60’s. The brightest of them all was Ray “You Can Call Me..” Thal who karded a kareer Gross 77-Net 66 to take top honors. After a slow start on the first three Ray birdied 4, 5, and 6 for a front nine trifecta. Adding another birdie on 13 he then hit every green and took two putts coming down the last four holes even par. Second went to Bobby “Jack LaLanne” Fogel who shot a superb Net 67. Two tied third as Burt “Kuddly Bear” Feldman and Steve “Nitro” Gordon came in with Net 68s. Tied fifth at Net 69 were Neal “I Found My Stroke” Bobys, Arthur “Getting The Hang Of This” Dubin, and Mark “Acute” Engel.
