What a night! Another perfect night of weather greeted Coot’s guys as they embarked upon the third week of the 2012 season. It was back to the front-9 and the fellas brought the ole course to her knees with lights-out scoring.
That stellar scoring was led by Brad Garlich‘s 1-under-par-35 and Joe Sonderman‘s even-par-36. Greg Gillick had the low-net-score with his net-30.
All of these great scores led to some action in the standings, but not at the top. Metro Electric finished 2011 in first place and, through 3 weeks, that’s where they stay. But, two teams took all 10 points – AALCO MFG. & Haegele Nursery – and made a great leap in the standings to be in serious contention as we near the quarter-post.
Metro Electric has a 2.5-point lead on Southside Machine in their early bid to go wire-to-wire for the first-half championship. Two teams earning all 10 points means that two teams posted goose eggs on the night: Quail Creek & Paul the Painter.
THE GOOD – Nick Kausch nabbed an eagle (3) on #7; he then went on to shoot an overall score of 38.
THE BAD – As in good…only 7 scores of 50 or more, compared to 25 scores of that type during Week 2.
THE UGLY – Team #7 – “B.T. Come Home!”
But…the big story of the night would have to be all the action on the Milestone Watch. Ron Schmitt and Larry Moellering led the celebration on The Watch by earning their milestone career wins: #150 & #100, respectively.
CONGRATULATIONS RON & LARRY!
Dennis Bowers got #98 & Herb Golterman #96. Larry’s win, though, had a certain poetic justice about it. You see, he earned #100 in the process of beating Kevin Gardner to avenge the early season loss of a couple weeks ago. That milestone victory for Larry turned out to be a milestone loss for KG as he joins the club of #150 career losses.
The feature match-up of Week 4 will be a battle between the second-place team (Southside Machine, 20 points) and the third-place team (Heyl Farms, 18.5 points). Could be a big night for either team!
A special shout out to Chef Craig in his efforts to keep Coot’s guys fat & happy! Coot would also like to welcome KFNS personality, Jay Randolph, Jr. to the Week 4 festivities. Jay Jr. will be on site as he prepares for the launch of his “Puffers & Duffers” golf league & live broadcast of the “One to Three Show” on May 10th.
