Cleveland Metroparks GolfDan Predovic and Joe Blackburn chipped in twice on two of the tougher par-three holes (each one good for a skin!) to win the first Cleveland Metroparks Golf Series event of the 2017 season, the Manakiki Spring 2-Players Scramble.

The pair posted a strong 8-under par 64 to win by a single shot on a challenging scoring day, with cool breezy conditions and tall, thick, juicy rough in play. (All of the players complimented the condition of the greens, however, which were in fantastic shape given all of the recent rain.)

Jason and Andrew Jendre finished in second place alone, two shots ahead of a pair of third place teams.

The next event on the 2017 CMG schedule is the Shawnee Stroke Play at Shawnee Hills Golf Course on Sat May 13th.
