Ted Akiba, Don Donovan, John Carollo paired up with Blind Draw to take first place in Wednesday’s Men’s Day competition. They beat Dennis Kildare, Howard Garr, Ron Dobkin and Dave Kopp by a single stroke. Gene Kloeckner, Greg Luce, Garry Warner and Jim Maxwell finished third after winning a scorecard playoff.
It was interesting to note that the Men’s Day game was two best balls of the team except for the 9th and 18th holes where all four balls counted. Within the Kildare Group, the game was two best balls on all 18 holes. Kildare’s team finished second in the Men’s Day competition, but third within the smaller group. Proof that it pays to play the last hole well.
John Herold took low gross honors with a 73 on a windy day. Garry Warner was two strokes back. Alex Currie and Ron Dobkin tied for low net honors with 68s. Skins were lucrative with Gary Reibman, Howard Jones, Gene Kloeckner, Ted Akiba and Pat Collins winning two each. Dave Kopp and Bernie Katchen each had one.
