SUMMER LEAGUE – PLAYOFF FINALS

It came down to 4 golfers this past Tuesday and they battled it out to determine league champion.  After a slow start, Jarrod plowed through the back nine while Aaron, Brien and Adam were a little more slow and steady.  On the final tee pad Jarrod and Brien were tied at 6 under par and Adam and Aaron were each at 7 under.  Adam’s drive on 18 skipped to within 35 feet of the basket and his putt hit the chains, fell to the rim and rested for a while before falling out.  Aaron threw a fantastic S-curve drive over the trees and came to rest within 10 feet of the basket solidifying 1st place and the league championship.  Way to go Clarkey!

Playoff Final Scores:

  1.  Aaron C.  46
  2.  Adam G. 47
  3.  Brien F. 48 *earns 3rd in a 2-hole playoff with Jarrod.
