We have a First Half Winner! They took over the top spot in the standings after Week 2 and they never let go from there.
CONGRATULATIONS AALCO MFG. – FIRST HALF CHAMPS!
Team 8 finished with 61.5 points on the first half to win the title, further proving the statistical fact of how to win the Coot Brown title: average at least 6 points per week! The first team to 60 points in the first half (10 weeks) or 54 points in the second half (9 weeks) is all but guaranteed to win the title each season.
The Bean House (Team 1) was right on the heels of the AALCO MFG. guys, finishing just two points behind and sure to make a run at the second half title. Thanks to 8 points earned on the night and a little help from a tie breaker, C.E.S. (Team 4) finished the half in 3rd place.
The first week of the second half (Week 11) will tee off on June 27th and the feature match up of the week will be EVERYONE as all 12 teams will look to start strong out of the gate on the second half.
The Good – Everyone is back at ZERO!
The Bad – Only 10 weeks left in 2013…
The Ugly – Team 12 owns the 3 highest handicaps in the latest League Rankings…
John Westrich and Steve Turek grabbed the closest-to-the-pin honors on the night. Meanwhile, there was no movement on the Milestone Watch as Greg Gillick lost on Week 10.
John Davis & Mike Wamser were joined by Bob Twitchell in their pursuit of the Sandbagger Award at -2. Joe Sonderman took over the lead on the Best Record Award with his 4-0-1 (1.000) record through the first half. There’s a pretty big race for the “Sey Tuff Guy” Award, though, as four different guys are tied with their league-leading (worst?) .200 win percentage.
Dave Harte (29) and Steve Turek (30) had the low-net-scores on the night, taking advantage of the week being played on the front-9.
The League Rankings have been updated through the first 10 weeks of the 2013 season. [This is a good point to remind everyone to finish those Match Play Semi-Final matches by July 1st.]
When you review those rankings, you’ll see that Dave Schweitzer‘s reign as the top golfer was short-lived. Bruce Thomas is back as #1 after he carded a 1-under-par-35 on Week 10 (Dave did not golf on the night).
