Another week with an unrealized rain threat, meaning another uninterrupted night of golf! It was hot & humid but breezy to ease the pain a bit; it was really about pacing yourself for the second half of this doubleheader (Week 3 makeup is Friday, May 17th).
Just as the temps are on the rise, so is the action in the standings. Seven different teams are within six points of the top spot – thanks to the Week 5 sweeps by The Bean House (Team #1) & K.G. Electric, Inc (Team #12). The 10 points earned by each team helped them to leap frog right into contention for the first half title.
The defending champs jumped from 7th place to 2nd place with their sweep while AALCO MFG. (Team #8) held onto their 1st place spot for another round of golf.
Meanwhile, G & G Snow Plow continues to struggle and remain in the cellar after earning just three points on the night. They are being led by current “Sey Tuff Guy” leaders, Greg Gillick & Rob Gaylord who are each 0-4-0 on the young season.
THE GOOD – Bob Haegele’s nice round & low-net-score of 27!
THE BAD – “LUCK” – three birdies on #10…
THE UGLY – G & G Snow Plow lookin’ to get to 10 points for the first half!
Tim Overby & John Cooper nabbed the closest-to-the-pin honors on the night. Marty Yanics, the lone member of the Milestone Watch at this point, got career-victory #98 on the night & is on his way to the 100 Win Club.
Interesting stat of the week: there were no ties on May 16th & this is unusual. Since 2008 (when Brian Gardner took over the stat-keeping), there have been 99 rounds of golf that have impacted the player records. Of those 99 rounds, there have only been 11 rounds (including May 16th) that have not had at least one tied match. Those weeks were:
- 2008 – Week 9 & Week 10
- 2010 – Week 2 & Week 9
- 2011 – Week 2, Week 3, Week 7 & Week 11
- 2012 – Week 11 & Week 16
- 2013 – Week 5
Also this week, the other annual award leaders were updated. Three different guys are leading the way to the Sandbagger Award: Mike Wamser, Roland Laury & Dennis Bowers, all at a -2.
Jeff Pohrer is leading the way on the Best Record watch with his perfect 3-0-0 (1.000) record though the first four rounds of golf! Remember, Jeff also leads the league in career wins, losses, and ties with his 223-177-39 record. However, he doesn’t have the best career win percentage; that title is currently held by Russ Klevorn with his .643 percentage (27-15-3). In fact, there are 16 guys with at least 10 rounds played who have a better win percentage than Jeff.
