Pleasant Hill League, Sunday 11/1 (Sunny 65-70, South - Southwest wind 9-14 mph)
Twelve players out for Sunday league. Beautiful day for DG.... Caleb C showed up as we were walking to our initial drives, for speed of play I paired him with Bobby who was Cali. This is 3 Leagues in a row where the draw has been disrupted by late arrivals....if you're running late give me a call and we'll delay the draw until you arrive. In the future if you're late and don't call, you'll need to play as Cali. On our card it was a tight competition between Leo/Tom B, Spencer/Hummel, and Deano/Dan with several momentum changes during the round. Leo/Tom B started out hot with birds on #1 and #2 and after 7 holes held a 2 stroke advantage over both teams at 4 down....then Deano/Dan heated up with 4 consecutive birds to tie Leo/Tom B at 6 down after 11 holes, with Spencer/Hummel still 2 back....then Spencer/Hummel warmed up with a near bird on #12 in the woods (while both Leo/Tom B & Deano/Dan boogeyed) and birds on #13 & #14 to forge a three way tie at 6 down. But they immediately cooled back off with a boogie on #15. The only chance to break the tie was on #18, whenDeano/Dan were the only ones on the green, but they couldn't convert the bird. Meanwhile, Bobby/Caleb cruised thru a boogie free round to finish at 8 down for the win. Shot of the day had to be Hummel's forehand bomb on #14 (long across the road) that wound up within 8-10 feet of the basket.
Next League is at noon-thirty Sunday 11/8 at Lake Shore, hope to see you there....if you have questions about league give me a call at 816-210-1063.
Terry Adams, Aaron Johnson, and Angie came out and played a casual round after league.
Considering a special League this week to celebrate Club Elections on Saturday....maybe a few extra Safari holes?
