Beware the tall silver haired smooth throwing grandmaster toting nothing but a few discs in a Target bag. He just might take a little bit of your money.
Nine players showed up for Juel Doubles last Wednesday night. Including an East coast ringer who had one driver, two rocs, and a putter in a target bag. While warming up he lost his one driver in the tall Juel grass. Knowing that a Juel doubles round without a driver just isn't that much fun I lent him my most comparable disc to the one he lost. He ended up as cali, refused to accept a second borrowed driver, & still managed to tie John "Shiny New Discs" Jonhson
and I for second place at -10. We played a playoff hole and then decided to have a ctp for the 2nd place $ which the ringer won by about a foot. The ringer gave only his first name and place of origin, but after some internet detective work I was able to identify him as this guy http://www.pdga.com/player_stats/17277
not too bad a resume.
The winners, however, played much better than the ringer and everyone else. Kevin "Juel Doubles Ace Master" Christian
and Bob "Fast Start" Clark
birdied there first nine holes in a row and set the new season low score at -13.
Honorable mention goes to "Newly Addicted" Mason
who showed up for his first ever doubles round and teamed up with Jayden "I park 350 foot holes and can 100 foot jump putts" Johnson
and together they went under par. "Soon To Be Cashing" Carly
finally flipped herself a good partner in Brett "I heart Nukes" Vintertun
but they finished a few strokes out of the money.
Kevin & Bob -13 $26
"The Ringer" -10 $10
JJ & Dan -10
Carlee & Brett -7
Mason & Jayden -2
No Aces were hit & Bob Clark generously donated $2 dollars into the acepot which now stand at $23
I also heard a rumor that there was a little $
left over from last years ace pot which will hopefully find it's way into the current fund, but will leave out the details until it's a reality.
Shot of the Day
- John "Shiny New Discs" Jonhson
parking seventeen with a smooth low and tight anny backhand that nestled about 12 feet from the basket. 17 was the only hole that had not been birdied in the first two weeks of doubles. I should mention that Bob & Kevin got 17 as well this week, but JJ's drive was better!!
