Wednesday’s Inferno Cup match was a tale of extremes. Eight teams fought it out in a best ball, modified Stableford match. Mike Hickey and new member James Wexler came out on top just edging Kris Rosser and Bruce Partridge. Another new member, José Leon captured third place. A single point separated each team. The winning total was 26 points while third place was 24. Mike Hickey shot up to fourth place in the Inferno Cup standings while Kris Rosser climbed into the top ten for the first time. The consistency award goes to the team of Scott Hull and Howard Jones. By the time they made the turn, they had already amassed nearly as many points as it took to win the event, but they finished in the style of a Las Vegas hotel demolition and actually dropped three points on the back nine. Strong finishers indeed.
- Mike Miller – 74
- Kris Rosser and Jason Sample -78
- James Wexler – 65
- Dan Hourihan, Mike Miller and Bruce Partridge – 66
Kris Rosser dominated the skins game winning three while Wexler, Jones, Partridge, Hourihan and Hansen claimed one each.
The Dunes/Arroyo course played well with scores averaging 86.6. The final two holes proved to be the most troublesome playing at slightly higher than bogey. The sixth hole on the Dunes course was the friendliest with an average score of par plus a third of a stroke. Surprisingly, there was nothing worse than a bogey on the hole.
