Patrick Sheehan and José León became the 32nd and 33rd Inferno Cup participants to claim first place in a Cup Event. Sheehan was hotter than the peppers Peter Piper ate. His 74 earned him not only low net honors (by five strokes), he also shared low gross with Harold Hoeg. León chipped in with a couple of net eagles and birdies when they were needed. Mike Nichols and his hit-man, Bruce Partridge finished in second place only two strokes back.
Sheehan’s performance earned him first place in the match, first place in the net category, first place in the gross category, first place in the skins category (he won two) and first place in the day’s Inferno Cup points category. Other than that, it was a rather routine day for Mr. Sheehan.
- Patrick Sheehan – 62
- Mike Nichols – 67
- Pat Collins, Dan Hourihan and Bruce Partridge – 68
- Patrick Sheehan and Harold Hoeg – 74
- Mike Nichols – 76
At the other end of the performance spectrum, Heard Broadrick played poorly because he was rattled over the passing of his old high school sweetheart, Lauren Bacall. Howard Jones played poorly because he has little or no golf ability. George Stelmach didn’t play his best because he had to watch Howard Jones’ swing. Ron Dobkin started poorly, but then fell apart. Bruce Partridge played poorly (unless his ball was required for the team score). The playing stats for the day are shown below.
