Another hot night with temperatures in the low 90s. There was a little cloud cover and some rumblings in the sky but Coot’s guys put Week 19 in the books.
And so did C.E.S. – along with the second half title.
They did it despite earning just 4 points on the night. But that’s all they needed even though SOUTHSIDE MACHINE earned 8 points to finish in second place and METRO ELECTRIC earned 6 points to finish in third place.
But none of that matters as C.E.S. takes the half and will now face off against HEYL FARMS to earned the 28th championship in Coot Brown history.
Closest-to-the-pin winners on the night were LARRY MOELLERING AND TIM GARDNER. The only action on the Milestone Watch was the addition of MATT GAGNEPAIN who earned career victory #145 to put his name on the list. So 2015 will feature 5 different golfers starting the year looking for a career milestone. The Player Records page has been updated through the 2014 season so you can check it out to see where you stand now! For those of you keeping track at home, JEFF POHRER‘s record is now 238-187-41 (all league records).
It was a big skin night with a $400 pot, split between 2 golfers. NICK KAUSCH & RICK BRENNAN each earned a skin with birdies on #3 & #5, respectively; but, the majority of the winnings went to #19.
Several guys turned in low-net scores on the night, including:
- GARY SEYMOUR – 26 (43)
- JIM MARKUS – 28 (41)
- BOB HAEGELE – 29 (41)
- MARK BALVEN – 29 (44)
BRUCE THOMAS, however, turned in the low card of the night with his even-par-36 on the night. That wasn’t enough to help him hang on to the top spot in the League Rankings. Rather, DAVE SCHWEITZER finished the season in the top spot in the updated rankings by nearly a full stroke.
The Feature Match-Up of the week is, obviously, C.E.S. vs. HEYL FARMS in the Royal Rumble for the league title. C.E.S. is seeking their first league championship; HEYL FARMS is seeking their first as well (although, BEAN & HEYL won it twice in 2007 & 2010). In the case of a tie, C.E.S. holds the tiebreaker (head-to-head).
