Northeast Ohio Golf has always contended that the Chippewa Scratch League has some of the best amateur players in the state, maybe in the country.
The level of golf played on the first week of the 2012 league season backs up that statement.
The team of Dave Oates and Sam Spino made EIGHT birdies in nine holes on a breezy day with some truly tough hole locations. Offset by a lone bogey, the pair shot a 7-under par 29 on the lengthened back nine at Chippewa to win the first event of the season by two shots.
Spino and Oates also nabbed half the skins pot with their birdie on the 14th hole, splitting the skins with the eagle made on the 10th hole by Quinn Parker and Mark Thomas, good for $280 per team.
Should be another season of high-quality team golf at Chippewa in 2012. Practice hard and bring the A-game…
