Opening Day #25 – Week 1 Review

There’s not much that could have made Opening Day 2011 much better! The weather was near-perfect: partly cloudy/breezy/low 70s. The stage was set for the season to get going.

With festive attitudes and rusty swings, Coot’s guys hit the front 9 to get the 25th edition of Coot’s league off and running. There were plenty of guys, though, that weren’t rusty at all!

Jim Roesch (Haegele Nursery) and Joe Sonderman (Haegele Nursery) each shot a one-over-par-37 on Coot’s Opening Day. Three other guys shot in the 30s and many more in the 40s, not bad after nearly eight months off!

Opening Day even included the addition of another member to the 100 Win Club!


That’s right, with his score of 44 on the night, Dave made his way into the elite club. All of this excitement from Haegele Nursery-Team 7, helped put them in a tie for first place in Coot’s post-first-week standings.

Shotting Bullets… The Clock is Ticket… From Bunker to Glory…
The aforementioned team of Jim Roesch and Joe Sonderman deserve another shoutout for their respective rounds of 37! There are only 19 weeks remaining in Coot’s 25th season. John Perlongo (Bean & Heyl) chpped from the greenside bunker on #8 and into the hole to win his match!

The low-net-score of the night was turned in by Jeff Laury (C.E.S.) with his net-score of 31.

There were some great pictures and even a couple videos from week 1. Visit Coot’s Facebook page to see the pictures!
