Final Results: 2010 Yankee Run 5-Man Scramble

Yankee Run Golf CourseA field of 36 teams vied for a $10,000 purse with an added $1,800 in the side skins game at the Yankee Run 5-Man Scramble on Sunday April 25, 2010.

Everyone prepared for a day of terrible weather, but mother nature surprised the field with sunny, mild conditions. And in the end, it took a record low score to win.

The team of John Zitkovic, pro Tim Ailes, Kent Russell, Rich Miller and Lynn Martin shot an amazing 20-under par to win by a single shot. The veteran team amassed 4 eagles, 12 birdies, and only 2 pars for their record-setting winning score of 50.

As was stipulated prior to the start of the tournament, all ties were decided by a scorecard playoff beginning with the hardest handicapped hole and going forward. The following results reflect that rule:

1st   John Zitkovic and Company 50 (-20) $4,000
2nd  Bill Baloh and Company  51 (-19)  $2,800
3rd   Steve Blackburn and Company  51  (-19)  $1,800
4th   Bob Blaze and Company  51 (-19)  $900
5th  Dan Krauth and Company  52 (-18)  $500
6th   Adam Crisp & Co  52 (-18)
7th   Terry Danko  & Co  52 (-18)
8th   Larry Nagy & Co  52 (-18)
9th   Kevin Cook & Co  53 (-17)
10th Robert Hall &  Co  53 (-17)
11th Frank Francia & Co  53 (-17)

Eagle 2 – Adam Crisp and Co. (sinking a 35 foot putt)

Hole # 16   Par 5
