Wicked Woods has been nothing but kind to Mark Julius this year, as he continued his hot streak by capturing a skin and a pin shot there Thursday night.
Julius birdied the par-5 12th hole that held up for a skin worth $130.33, and he grabbed the pin shot at the uphill 150-yard par-3 14th hole worth $59.50. The double-dip was Julius’ second big night of the year at Wicked Woods, as he climbs into second place on the season-long leaderboard, less than $185 away from the lead still held by Eddie Neer.
Mike Angie captured his first skin of the year as he birdied the par-4 11th hole.
Brian Perkins earned the final skin of the night with a 20-foot birdie putt on the par-3 14th hole. Perkins has played in just 2 events this year but has already captured four skins!
Geoff Nicely closed out the evening with a pin shot the 15th hole.
Brian Pentek may have hit the shot of the evening, sweeping a massive snap hook around the trees with a 3 wood on the par-4 16th hole that ended up on the back fringe of the green, just past the pin. However, Pentek’s eagle putt just came up short and two other birdies were already posted.
There is only one more week of play left to determine the top five players on the leaderboard who gain an exemption into the 2010 Greater Cleveland Amateur Championship. Next week, The Greater Cleveland Skins Game travels to Aurora Country Club for the first time ever to finalize this ‘exemptions list’, with tee times starting at 5 p.m.
