As a reminder, the game each week is a 9-hole Foursome A-B-C-D Team Scramble with team prizes based on gross scores, supplemented by a Skins game.
This week we had 14 players who ignored the iffy weather conditions, including our Deer Creek Head Pro Spencer Scheeler. The scores were again very competitive with two teams at 29, one team at 30, and one team at 33. The team of Jim Boyce, Mark Dusak, Bob Gardner, and Bill Tomassini turned in the 29 along with the team of Eddie Ambrose, Ross Petronchak, and Cliff Spiro. To break the tie, we went to a chip-off for the second week in a row. The Ambrose team won with Eddie Ambrose hitting a chip to within five feet of the cup.
There were two skins awarded with the Ambrose team eagling #6 (way to go guys!) and the team of Jonathon Johnston, Frank Schepis, and John Bokina birding #2.
All the players had a great time and enjoyed the customary complementary beverages after the match while determining the winners via a chip-off. We were glad to see that 14 folks ignored the iffy weather conditions, and especially welcomed were our LMGA’s working members. Thanks to all who participated.
Next Wednesday, the Wednesday Evening Scramble will be at 6pm on Palmetto. LMGA welcomes all our members and especially our working members to join in and play. Our pros have added an extra measure of fun to the game and a great opportunity to get them to meet and play with LMGA members. Sign-up by calling the Palmetto Golf Shop on Wednesday August 5th from 9:00am to 3:00pm to register. And then show up before 5:45 on Wednesday evening to play. That is all there is to it; the rest will be handled by the Club Pros and the LMGA leadership. Hope to see y’all there.
