On an open play Wednesday, we had many sign up, but I don't believe all that many members actually played. I teed off early at 3:39 and had to get out of their early, so I could be wrong. Nonetheless it was perfect weather for the four teams playing in the first round: It was third ranked Young Gunz vs. 6th ranked The Loop & 5th ranked CTB vs. 4th ranked Unfinished Business. Top seeded Drawshank and second seeded WTF both had byes.
(3) Young Gunz vs. (6) The Loop: The first group off was Gavin May & Ryan Dahl (Young Gunz) vs. Steve Hallfin & Eric Berg (The Loop). May and Dahl propelled Young Gunz to a big lead with 14 points out of the gate vs. Hallfin and Berg's 6 points. The second group to play was Vince Ross & Steve Binenstock (Young Gunz) vs. Brian Sutton and Paul Olson (The Loop). Binenstock and Ross pushed them a little farther ahead with a 12 to 8 point win over Olson and Sutton.
With two groups remaining, Young Gunz needed only 14.5 points to guarantee the win. The third group off was Ramiro Sifuentes & Nick Ward (Young Gunz) vs. Bill Guthrie and Kevin Schultz (The Loop). Sifuentes and Ward did their job securing another victory with 10.5 points to Guthrie and K. Schultz's 9.5. Needing only 4 points out of the last group, Young Gunz was almost there. And the final match was Nick Schultz & Kelly Gallagher (Young Gunz) vs. Marc Kenville & Mike Parsons (The Loop). Schultz and Gallagher must've been nervous, that they didn't get it done for their team, coming in with only 6.5 points. However, needing only, it was just good enough. Young Gunz defeats The Loop 43 to 37. Young Gunz moves on to face WTF in a (2) vs. (3) matchup.
(4) Unfinished Business vs. (5) CTB: The first group off was Stacey Sundet & Wayne Nau (CTB) vs. Richard Brower & Ben Peterson (Unfinished Business). Nau took Brower 6-4 but Peterson took Sundet 6-4, leaving the match all tied 10 to 10 after the first group. The second group off was Chuck Kuglar & Dan Gregorich (CTB) vs. Curtis Medina & Ward Eames (Unfinished Business). Chuck & Dan had enough messing around, so they single-handedly destroyed Unfinshed Business's dreams winning 15 to 5.
With two groups remaming, CTB lead Unfinished business 25 to 15, CTB needing only 15.5 more with two groups remaining. The third group off was Matt Grove & Joel Longo (CTB) vs. Jim Husnik & Dan Roberts (Unfinished Business). Husnik & Roberts pulled Unfinished Business's dreams out from the ashes crushing Grove and Longo 14.5 to 5.5. Down to the final pairing, CTB lead Unfinished Business by only 1 point, 30.5 to 29.5. The final pairing of the evening was Stave Latham and Don Grove (CTB) against Mark Lange & Mike Dietrich (Unfinished Business). After 6 holes, Latham and Grove already secured 9 points. Needing only 1 point between the two of them over the last three holes, the pressure was off and they crushed it... scoring a total of 13.5 points to Lange and Dietrich's 6.5. CTB defeats Unfinished Business, also, 43 to 37. CTB will move on to face Drawshank Redemption in a (1) vs. (5) matchup.
