Round 1, Saturday June 23rd 2018
Day 1 included several great performances led by a gross 61 by Hunter Wescott and Dimitre Popov. Hunter and Dimitre also won the only skin of the day with an eagle on #13 (Net Skins money will carry over for tomorrow).
Also shining today was the low net team of the day in the 1st flight Greg Wellington and Jim Anderson. Greg and Jim mad a couple of 50 foot bombs and chipped in on the way to a net 61!!!
An exciting horserace of 15 teams came down to the wire. Barrett Poe skied his tee shot on 18, Mike Fenstermaker chunked his approach shot and it went 20 yards. Sam Spicher missed the green with a wedge in his hand and Barrett Poe chipped it long to 12 feet pin high left. Surprisingly they still had a chance to win it!!! With all the marbles at stake Mike calmly redeemed himself by making the shot of the Horserace! His putt barely fell in on the side door to get into the playoff between the teams of Spicher-Poe-Fenstermaker and S. Smith-Hill-Packer. Barrett Poe barely edged Brice Hill in the chip off by just 3 feet. A thrilling end to the always entertaining horserace.
As a reminder tomorrow’s game is both balls count with double Rock Creek Cup points on the line!
Breakfast starts in the grill at 7:30 tomorrow and shotgun starts at 9am.
See you tomorrow,
