A beautiful March day greeted the 32 teams that teed it up for the season opening 3-man Step Back Scramble at Zoar Golf Club on Saturday afternoon the day before Easter.
The tournament’s format calls for the player whose shot is selected in a scramble to “step back” (not play) for the following stroke.
Tying for first place honors after each posted an 8 under par 64, the Wooster team of Raymond Miller, Aaron Miller and Lonnie Wenger matched the Columbus team of Eric Frishette, Brian Smith and Cliff Grubb, as the latter team birdied their last five holes.
Nick Lambos, Gino O’Byrne and Kirk Peterson shot 66 to tie Ryan Stefanski, Ian Marek, and Mike Sampson for third place.
Tied for fifth place were: Jeff Dean, Bruce Dean and Shane Bishop; Adam Trent, Jeff Crawford and Kevin O’Brian; Eric Vought, Ty Kovach and Matt Lewis; and Matt Gasser, Brian Gasser and Steve Cunningham all carded 67.
There were no skins won outright on the day, so the skins pot was added back into the event pot; prize amounts won listed below.
The next 2016 tournament event to played at Zoar Golf Club will be the Zoar Spring 2-Man Scramble on Saturday, April 30th. Get your am team signed up today…
