The team of Dave Oates and Sam Spino captured the back-nine better ball event at this week’s Chippewa Monday Night Scratch League, posting a 3-under par 33 to edge four other teams on a great night for golf.
But the big story is that their score of 33 included a hole-out eagle-2 on the par-4 15th hole!
With the field shot, Oates/Spino grabbed one of only two skins won — on a skins carry-over night, no less — netting them $525 for their eagle on the tough 15th hole. The team of Drew Thompson and Russ Ryka grabbed the other big cash skin, with a birdie on the par-3 17th.
The year-long league standings are now posted and available, as the gift certificate portion of the weekly prizes has been determined (shown as GC below). Oates and Spino lead the pack with their big win this week, but a number of teams are breathing down their necks. Should be a great race throughout the season. Season standings through Week 5 can be found here.
