2013 EVENT #10 PEAKS AND PLEASANT VALLEY RECAP
Monday July 15th, 2013
Pleasant Valley GC
par 72, 6912 yards
The weather was hot and so was the scoring! The golf course was in very good shape considering all the rain that we have had over the past couple of weeks. The course was still soft and it played much longer than its 6912 yards that is printed on the scorecard. The rough was thick, the fairways were soft, the ponds were up, and the greens were rolling true.
Boys 16-18, after playing well for the past couple of weeks Jacob Zbin turned in the only sub-80 round in the age group, at 79, and took home his first tour victory! Congratulations, coach Wisner will be very pleased and proud!
Boys 14-15, had a three-way tie for first place at 77 which was then decided by our unique scorecard playoff, of adding hole #’s 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, and 18 together. Low total score wins and if there is still a tie then we start at hole #1 and do a sudden death scorecard playoff. Joseph Onorato won the tiebreaker with Ben Jones taking second and Chad Dubiel finishing third.
Boys 12-13, Danny Soucie, coming on strong here at the end of the season, fired an 83 to take the title with a 5 shot victory. Only one other, Colton Levey, broke 90 in this age group as they played from the white tees and the course was playing really long. Great work!
Girls 16-18, Karly Alexander, playing in one of the last groups and taking on most of the heat and fellow competitors, shot a wonderful 77 to secure Medalist honors by 5 shots. Great playing!
Girls 13-15, Madison Butler continues her stellar play this season as she shot 81 and captured another title. The race for Player of the Year though is still up for grabs as Nicole Gerome, finishing second (83), is doing all she can to make sure that who ever wins the Player of the Year has earned it! Great work ladies and good luck!
