The team of Mike Armour & Jason Chadima tied with Ty Kovach & Allen Freeman, as each posted a solid score of 6-under par 29 on the front side to win the Chippewa Scratch League in the scramble format this week.
But the three hitter on the fifth hole and the 5-under par solo third place finish left Dennis Berkheimer and Chris Helaney as the big winners on Monday evening.
Berkheimer and Helany nabbed an improbable skin on the par-4 fifth hole: they played their second shot from well back after hitting a pine tree off the tee, and from there Berkheimer knocked it to the center of the green. Helany then holed a wriggling 35-footer for the only birdie of the day there, claiming half of the night’s skins pot.
With the gift certificates they earned for their third place finish, Helany and Berkheimer take the big pull of the night and with it a nice bump up the Season Standings, where they currently sit in fourth position after a skins nab last week, too.
Dave Oates and Joe Nemeth grabbed the other skin on the evening with a chip-in eagle at the par-4 seventh. The skin winner pads Oatey’s lead to a juicy $224 in the 2012 Season Standings.
