The team of David Trier, Anthony Yacovazzi and Ross Beal — the self-titled ‘Kitten and the Kids’ — put a few bogeys onto their team scorecard but also ripped off a huge string of birdies and a mile’s worth of Yacovazzi putts to capture the 2011 Akron District Golf Association’s 3-Man Shamble at Chippewa Golf Course in Doylestown Saturday.
The threesome finished at 12-under par 130 in the shamble format (the best tee shot is selected like a scramble, but from there the players finish the hole on their own ball and two of three scores count for the team). That score was good for a two shot victory over the team of Carl Albright, Mike Riley and Lucas Murray, who won two skins worth $150 each to add some heft to the haul of their second place prize total.
In the Senior Division, the formidable veteran team of Jim Cea, Ron Bell and Fred Miller posted a solid 10-under par 132 to win by two shots over three teams. The winners also took three skins worth $40 each, a third of the available skins money.
Complete results below.
The updated ADGA Player of the Year totals will be posted to the ADGA website soon. The 3-M Shamble is the last ‘regular season’ event run by the ADGA until the Player of the Year tournament at Firestone September 30th – October 2nd, but points can still be earned for that event through the upcoming Ohio Publinx at Seven Hills, the Summit County Am and the Senior Summit County Am.
