Fishing Season at Gainey – Saturday, October 20th

The big fish were on the Lakes Saturday. The regular irregular skins game brought the big sticks to the tee box. Some of the club pros, some of the new members with tiny little handicaps and some of us that figured “What the hell – I might get lucky” came out of the woodwork with the lure of a $50 skins game. Dave Yarns took home $330 with one of the sweetest swings in golf and a 67. New Gainey Ranch employee Andrew Silverman took one skin for $110 and Scott Thompson won the other.

It’s exhilarating to play with a bunch of guys where the competition rises to such a high level even if you go home empty handed. It may not be a great consolation, but I guess I can view my entry fee as the price of admission to watch some excellent golf.

The next skins game for the high rollers is scheduled for November 17th. With a $50 buy-in, you might just go home with a pocket full of cash.

  1. I’m the big loser on Saturday’s Big Skins event! $115 to be exact!

    I offered to pay Dave’s $50 entry in return for 50% of his winnings – I obviously had as much confidence in Mr Y as he did himself!!
