Dave Trier and Ty Kovach watch as Mike Armour putts at the 18th at Barberton Brookside in the ADGA Golf Galaxy 4-M.

It may have been the noisiest Akron District Golf Association event ever.

Mallette-Marr-SpinoThe stacked team of ADGA All-Stars Danny Marr, Bobby Spino, Dave Oates and Dr. Jeff Mallette (right) went out early in the Golf Galaxy 4-Man Scramble at Barberton Brookside Country Club and played to their high level of talent.

They turned at 9-under par and posted a final score of 17-under that looked to be unbeatable.

Until it got loud.

Riding Dave Trier‘s sizzling hot putter and some pin-point wedges from Mike Armour on the front side, they pushed teammates Ty Kovach and Allen Freeman through the turn with a lead-matching score of 9-under par.

After a solid eagle at the par-5 10th and expected birdie at 11, it turned into bomb and scream.

First, Freeman made a 50-foot putt that broke 20 feet from the back to the front of the 12th green that started the whooping and put the team one ahead of the ADGA All-Stars.

Mike Armour, Dave Trier, Allen Freeman, Ty KovachThen putting in the anchor position, Kovach made a 35-foot bomb on the 15th hole that kept the noise level up and the one shot lead intact.

But then some real craziness: after a smash of a drive by Kovach on the 16th hole, he holed a swooping pitch from 39 yards in the left rough that led to more jumping around and hollering, earning the team a skin and pushing them ahead by two.

Freeman made a birdie on his own ball at the tough par-3 17th hole, then the team closed out the 18th with a finishing birdie for a 10-under par back nine and a head-spinning 19-under par 53, a record 4-man score for the ADGA at Barberton Brookside.

In the Senior Division, there was a bit more decorum amongst the two teams that finished in a first place tie.

Two players who always seem to hang near the top of an ADGA Senior leaderboard, Larry Lahnan and Fred Miller joined with Tom Laubacher and Brian Huntley. Together they shot a score of 16-under par to put them into a tie with Team Dean: Jeff Dean, Bruce Dean, John Paul Jones and Jay Hotchkiss.

Those two teams were two shots clear of the next best Senior finishers.

Special thanks to ADGA Tournament Director Dave Chapple who did a full day of yeoman’s work running the event in Tim Davis’ absence. Chap, you are the man!

The next event on the ADGA schedule is the ADGA Budweiser Pro-4 Am at Windmill Lakes Golf Club in Ravenna on Friday, June 20th. More details to follow on the format of that event.
