The Egg Invitational at Sand RidgeJim Krivanek of Cleveland and Brian Smith of Amherst paired their great Chapman-format second round with an unsurpassed better ball final round to not only win The Egg Invitational at Sand Ridge, but to do so in record-setting fashion.

Krivanek and Smith posted a 6-under par 66 in Tuesday morning’s better ball finale to hold off all challengers, breaking the previous tournament scoring record by a whopping four shots with a 199 total.

Two of the teams closely chasing the eventual winners also shot a matching 66 on Tuesday: David Hall and Henry Do of Detroit finished in second place for the second consecutive year; and NEOH locals Jimmy Wild and Ryan Stefanski jumped over a handful of teams to finish in third.

33 two-player teams from clubs all across the country competed in the 2018 event.

Mike Haynes

But the shot of the week belonged to Mike Haynes of Cliffside Golf Club in Gallipolis, OH (above). Mike made a HOLE-IN-ONE on the par-3 8th hole, which was playing 144 yards and cut just over the front left-side bunker. The ace was Haynes’ seventh of his career and netted him a sweep of the entire third round skins pot. Congrats Mike!
