It’s not too often that Cinco de Mayo falls on a Thursday and Coot’s guys get to celebrate. But, that’s exactly what happened this year and what a beaut it was!
The weather was perfect: 70-degrees & breezy; playoff hockey was on; the Cards were playing; and the margaritas were flowing!
The real excitement, though, was in the standings as the race got tighter than Donald vs. Hillary.
K.G. ELECTRIC, INC. only managed to grab 3 points from the very stingy team, THE TUREK BROTHERS. That leaves us with 6 teams within 8 points of the top spot as we approach the Quarter Pole.
Despite the K.G. ELECTRIC, INC. struggles, there were plenty of birdies on the back-9 but still only 1 sub-40 score, carded by DAVE SCHWEITZER (39). MATT GAGNEPAIN had the low-net-score on the night with his 30 (41).
After last week’s no action on the Milestone Watch, there was a lot that happened this week. First, JIM PLEIMANN got #95 and was added to the watch list. KEVIN GARDNER & DAVE HEGGER each got career-victory #148 to inch a bit closer to their shared milestone. ROB GAYLORD, however, earned his career milestone with his 100th victory of his Coot career!
On the flip side, RON SUDA & MIKE WAMSER each earned their 100th career loss…not quite as worthy of a celebration.
ROB GAYLORD also earned a closest-to-the-pin honor, along with JIM ROESCH.
Week 5’s Match of the Week will feature SOUTHSIDE MACHINE, who is on a roll of late, challenging “The Lonely Hearts”, PAUL THE PAINTER.
REMINDER: Round 2 of Coot’s Match Play Challenge is
Saturday, May 14th, at 8:00am.
“5th major contest this week!”
