Under ominous skies, Powderhorn Golf Course in Madison yielded quite a few birdies on Thursday to the 16 player field.
But in the end it was old-timers night, as George Martin of Chardon, Geoff Nicely of Concord and Gary Zehe of Madison gave a few lessons to the youngsters by capturing all the skins.
Geoff Nicely birdied the par-4 third hole, draining a 18 footer for a skin. George Martin took the pin shot and the skin at the par-3 fifth hole with a 5-iron to 12 feet. And Gary Zehe chipped in at the tough 210 yard par-3 eighth hole. Skins were worth $122.66 each.
Dave Sotka took the other pin shot on the 8th hole for $56.
George Martin was the big winner on the night with $178.66. Martin now moves up into 4th place (by 16 cents!) on the Greater Cleveland Skins game leaderboard with just one more week left to try to earn an exemption into this year’s Greater Cleveland Amateur Championship. The top five on the leaderboard qualify after next week’s Double Down Event at Thunderhill, where the stakes are doubled to $60 but the green fees stay low at the $15 rate which includes the cart!
Please note that this Thursdays event at Thunderhill is only open to participants that have played two or more times in this year’s Greater Cleveland Skins Game. The Game starts at ThunderHill at 5pm.
