Another week, more rain. Now, for the first time in some weeks, it wasn’t a total rainfall the entire night of golf. But, after days of mid-80s temps, Coot’s guys were greeted with a cool 55° and drizzle. Combine that with play on the dreaded back-nine, and you have record-bad golf for Coot’s league.
For the first time in Coot’s 25 years, there were NO golfers with a sub-40 score. In fact, the lowest scratch score on the night was Bob DeGunia’s 40. There was a bright spot on the net-score front: Jim Jost Jr.’s 31. But, all-in-all, scores were great. Dave Cooper suffered his first loss of the season. Meanwhile, the Milestone Watch only saw one victory: John Cooper’s 97th career victory.
|THE GOOD||THE BAD||THE UGLY|
|No Rain||More Rain||Too Much Rain|
|For only the 2nd time this season, the week wasn’t a total washout.||Forecast for the next six weeks:
|Water, water, water…too much water.|
Skins were won by: Bob DeGunia on #10 (the league’s most hated hole on the course, according to the player profiles), John Greffet on #15, and Rick Brennan on #17.
The standings did not change for spots one through six. Bean & Heyl (Team 1) lead the way for the bottom half of the standings; they moved from last to ninth place while the other 5 teams in the bottom half move around as well.
Chris Caruso and Nick Kausch (again) each nabbed a closest-to-the-pin honors. Most improved through seven weeks is Elliot Kite who has improved his handicap by 2 strokes. Matt Jost and Nick Kausch each have a perfect winning percentage of 1.000 with their 4-0-0 and 4-0-1 records, respectively.
