No Major Moves on Ghost Busters’ Wednesday

The top five positions in the race for the Cup remained unchanged. There was some minor shuffling near the bottom of the money positions, i.e., sixth and seventh. Dan Hourihan climbed from seventh into sixth bumping Matt Bintzler (who didn’t play) down a spot. Only about a hundred points separate sixth from tenth place. With exactly ten rounds left to play, two dozen players still have realistic chances of finishing in the money.

In the day game, the team of Harold Hoeg, Ron Dobkin and Jim Gabriel survived the challenge of James Wexler, Jason Sample and Pat Collins to take first place honors. I say it was “ghost busters’ Wednesday” because the first two teams to tee off clearly had evil spirits to contend with and had to chase them from the field. In the process, they suffered greatly. Mike Nichols, Heard Broadrick and Mike Hickey beat Howard Jones, Mark Ramser and Tom Hansen to avoid DFL by one stroke. The two teams were an average of twenty strokes behind the winners. Great job boys!

Low Net

  1. Harold Hoeg, Pat Collins, Dan Hourihan, Mike Forde and Jason Sample – 69

In the wake of Saturday’s giant putt giveaway, scores returned to close to normal with an average gross of 86.7. The handicap differentials were a little higher than normal (5.0), but the ghost buster teams probably accounted for the difference. Inexplicably, the easiest hole on the course for the day was #4 Arroyo, normally one of the toughest. It played at par-and-a-half. It gave up no birdies, but 62% of the field parred the hole.Stats20140903
