Thirsty Thursday Results – August 20th

The game this week was the crowd favorite Pick-6 Scramble where each team selected six tees from three different teeing grounds. A-B teams used six tees each from Tournament, Club, and Course Named tees while C-D teams selected six tees from Club, Medal, and Skidaway tees.

In the A-B Flight, the team of Andy Eastwood, Bob Hainly, John Higgins, and Tom Richards shot a round of 53 to win the Flight by 3 strokes. The C-D Flight was won by the team of Brian Mitchell, Donald McVay, Bruce Gingold, and Dan Malachuk with a score of 52 which was also 3 strokes better than their closest competitor. All-in-all, the field was tightly packed with all scores in the 52 to 60 range.

A big SHOUT-OUT goes to Brian Mitchell who holed out a natural Double Eagle on Oakridge #15 (Cenetery Hole) with a shot from the other side of the Marsh. Way to go Brian; certainly helped contribute to your team’s victory in the C-D Flight! And we had one new player today, Mark Dusek, who started his LMGA “career” with a 2nd place finish in the A-B Flight, helping his team finish with a score of 56! Welcome and way to go Mark!

And as always, a special thanks goes to the LMGA folks who continue to make these events huge successes while ensuring everyone stays safe and follows all the Corona Virus guidelines.
