Crewes & Vincelette Overcome “Winter in May” to Win 2010 Turkeyfoot Spring 2-M Scramble

How cold was it? Doug 'Sparky' Barber and Ross Beal were probably a bit under-dressed...

Turkeyfoot Lake Golf LinksIt was brutal. Temperature in the mid-40s. Winds of 25-30 mph.

It even hailed twice.

At least Turkeyfoot Golf Links superintendent Charlie Mozingo gave the field a bit of a break by setting the hole locations in friendlier-than-normal tournament spots.

But friendly pins or not, the 10-under par score of 61 posted by the team of Brian Vincelette and Aaron Crewse showed some resolve against the elements. The pair posted their score as the first group of the day (but in no way did they dodge the weather by going out early!), then held on for a one shot victory over three teams that finished at -9: Mike Armour & David Trier, Jeff Mallette & John Oyster, and Justin Lower & Rich Schembechler.

And even more impressive for the tournament field as a whole was the fact that 45 teams played in that weather!

Skins: the team of Mike Simpson and Dan Marr won the entire $900 skins pot with a birdie on the 178-yard par-3 second hole, a difficult shot that played into a gale with a tricky front-right pin. But as much as luck smiled on Simpson and Marr to win a skin with a birdie in a scramble, she showed some disdain for the teams of Troutman & Albright and Seltzer & Vance: both of those teams holed out for eagle from the fairway on the short par-4 14th hole to tie each other off. (Simpson and Marr thank them.)
