The Keepers season got off to a rip roaring start today with our annual Masters Weekend Keepers Pro-Schmo. Thirty-six guys teamed up with seven of the pros who shot the best rounds in Friday’s second round at Augusta. The Virtual Pro Partners included Bubba (68), Thomas Bjorn (68), John Senden (68), Jim Furyk (68), Lucas Glover (69), Gonzalo Fdez Castrano (69), and Brandon Grace (69).
Each Keeper played a virtual Best Ball with the pro they picked out of The Keepers Kap, Thomas Bjorn was clearly the desired pick with his 8 birdies in yesterday’s round. But as you will see the winners in the event had a cross section of help from their ghost pros.
The winners in today’s top prize in Keepers Kup Points and Keepers Kash Sweeps were Steve “Country Doc” Keller/Brandon Grace and Rich “Kojak” Greenberg/G. Fdez Castrano with net 61 on the South Zoysia. Five pairings tied for third place with net 62. They were Neal Bobys/Lucas Glover, Chet Levine/Thomas Bjorn, Arnie Miller/Brandon Grace, Jimmy Polsky/Thomas Bjorn, and Rob “New Boy On The Block” Shesser/John Senden.
In the Folds of Honor/Wounded Warriors Player’s Pool Kash Game we played a Stapleford-Like kompetition called Net Pars Or Better. This charity competition raised $330 toward our annual donation to these two worthy causes.
Without the help of any ghost pros the winners in this kompetition were:
1st- Steve Keller with 22 points
T-2nd Rich Greenberg and Rick Brecher with 20 points
3rd- Arnie Miller with 19 points
There were a Keepers Slew of guys at 17 points (7 guys) who will be replaying a few missed downhill three-footers in their minds tonight.
Some of the happy participants:
