A very cool (18 Degrees C or less) threatening rain that never developed. The course remains in good condition, except for the aforementioned turf disease, which is progressing but being treated, and which doesn’t really affect play.
Today we had ten participants (including Doc, who did not participate in the skins game), all members. We played our normal skins game from the blue tees. with Leo and Darryl playing from the white tees, and Young playing from the red tees. Egbert joined us after a brief trip to the outer-world — welcome back, Egbert!
Young “Se-Ri” Park again had a great round — her third or fourth 40-point game in a row. She won the top stableford prize. Marc came in second with 39. Darryl won the most skins, despite a middling round — he won at the right times, winning the third hole for three skins and the fifth hole for two, as well as a closest-to-the-pin on Hole 3.
Speaking of closest-to-the-pins, in addition to Darryl’s closest on Hole 3… Paul hit the green on Hole 7, but did the Walk of Shame. However, he redeemed himself on Hole 12 to win two skins. Leo’s highlight of the day was a closest prize on Hole 17.
Here are the results:
- Winner: Young “Se-Ri” Park (40 Points)
- Runner-up: Marc (39 Points)
Closest to the pins:
- Hole 3: Darryl
- Hole 7: No One (Paul did the Walk of Shame)
- Hole 12: Paul (x2)
- Hole 17: Leo
