Travis/Jamie Use Final Day Surge To Win Elks Golf League
With the Elk’s Golf League final week of play concluded, team Travis/Jamie, with a total of 91.5 points, claimed the championship! Starting the day in second place the team scored an amazing 9.5 points out of a possible 10 on the St. Lawrence State Park tract to claim the top spot for 2020.
Along with the accolades, and all the prize money, comes the honor of sitting at the head table at the upcoming banquet and getting first crack at the chicken wing bowl! Let’s hope they save some for Scott/Dale. Mel/Butch claimed second place with 89.5 points, and Coz/Tom finished third with 88 points. Coz/Tom scored 9.5 points for the week but were unable to overcome the late season surge from Mel/Butch.
Recording birdies this week were Scotty Williams on 1 & 5, Dave Mills on 1, Tom Moran on 2, and Tom Hannan (that is not a typo) on 6. Skins were had by Tom Moran, Scotty Williams and Tom Hannan (again, not a typo). The lone under 40 score was turned in by Jamie Alonso. Must be boring to be so consistent!
The League would like to thank the State Park staff for the fine job they did this year. A special thank you to Brenna for putting up with the crew. While the lack of rain early in the year made for some less than ideal conditions, it sure helped the ego of a lot of short hitters. As the season progressed the rains came and the course was back to normal, which almost made it hard for those “bump and run” players amongst the group. One request for next year; that the pins find the center of the greens more often!
Hope to see all the Elk’s League Golfers next season!
Reminder: The yearend get-together is planned for Wednesday September 9. It will start at 3:30-4:00 at the course with a nine-hole Texas Scramble, with teams to be determined. This will be followed by pizza and wings at the Moose around 6:30-7:00. Anyone who wants to get in some additional play is welcome to show up earlier in the afternoon and play with their own pairings. Just be ready to start the scramble at the time stated above!
