The temperatures were on the rise again during Week 7, but, again, no rain threatened. Gusty winds accompanied 95-degree temps; but, all-in-all, everything was calm on the “battle field”.
The standings continue to be the top story of the 2012 season. Metro Electric continues to reside in the control seat; their lead, though, is only a half a point over Southside Machine. Metro Electric wasn’t the only team to stay in their position in the standings: the top five positions remained unchanged.
K.G. Electric, Inc. & G & G Snow Plow continue to battle to avoid ending the first half in the cellar. K.G. Electric, Inc. earned 1/2 point more than their cellar-dwelling counterpart to move up to eleventh place.
The key is getting into third place to earn some of the prize money. At the close of play on Week 7, every team in 4th place through 10th place are within 4.5 points from that spot – should make the final couple weeks of the first half awfully exciting!
THE GOOD – Low Net Score: Marty Yanics (30)
THE BAD – Larry Moellering’s 8-inch closest-to on #15
THE UGLY – Chris Turek taking away Larry’s closest-to bid on #15 by knocking his shot to within 4-inches of going into the hole for one of the closest “closest-to-the-pin” winners in league history (see picture above & below)
In addition to Chris Turek‘s closest-to-the-pin win on #15, Joe Sonderman grabbed the other closest-to on the
evening. On the milestone watch, Bob DeGunia earned career-victory #99…just 1 to go! Meanwhile, Juggie
Hinduja joined a different milestone club when he nabbed career loss #100.
The feature match-up of Week 8 is Heyl Farms (Team #9) against Paul the Painter (Team #12) in a battle for one
of the top 3 spots in the standings.
Week 7 was on the back-9 again. However, Coot says: “I can see the front-9 coming soon!”
