Another Day – Another Win

Hull and JonesHull and Jones began the day on top and stayed there. Scott Hull was sitting comfortably in first place in the Inferno Cup standings and seemed pleased to discover the guy in second place, Howard Jones, wouldn’t be gaining any ground on him. They had been paired together in Wednesday’s match. As luck would have it, they won by beating Dale Fitzhenry and his partner, blind draw Kris Rosser by two strokes. Rosser played well carding an even par round of 72. He played so well that he beat himself. He and Jim Gabriel were soundly in second place until Fitzhenry drew Rosser for a partner. The end result was that Rosser beat Rosser for the loss. His win/loss moved him from eighth into sixth place in the Cup standings. It was the only change in the top ten.

Low Net

  1. Howard Jones – 66
  2. Mike Nichols, Kris Rosser and Scott Hull – 67

Low Gross

  1. Kris Rossser and Bryan Noonan – 72
  2. Mike Nichols – 77

Scores were all over the map ranging from a couple of even par 72s to a not so smooth sailing 108. Bryan Noonan eagled #6 Dunes. Surprisingly, there were only nine birdies on the day – about half the normal number. Once again we point to the greens as the explanation. Until we get more rain, even a two footer can be an adventure not unlike Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride. Most golfers aren’t accustomed to dealing with triple-breakers from fourteen inches. It was most entertaining to see two guys with essentially identical putts. One would break right, the other left.
