Mike Angie rocketed to the top of the Greater Cleveland Skins Game leaderboard on Thursday at Quail Hollow by capturing the entire skins pot and a pin shot!
Every hole at Quail Hollow’s Weiskopf Course was birdied Thursday by the 20 players participating, but Angie’s solo birdies on the par-4 4th hole and the par-3 7th hole held up, giving him both skins for the night. Angie also took the pin shot on the 7th hole.
Angie’s big night netted him a cool $450 and put him a few dollars up in the season-long lead and the chase for the Thompson Cup. Steve Blackburn Jr. had a comfortable lead going into the night, but that changed with Angie’s sweep.
The other pin shot winners were Gary Zehe on the 5th, Sam Corabi on the 2nd, and Jarrod Dixon on the 9th, worth $50 each.
Next week, the Greater Cleveland Skins Game moves to a new venue: Madison Country Club, staring at 5pm. A special $25.00 greens fee will be featured; should be a great evening.
Finally, players are reminded that in order to participate in the “prize enhanced” Greater Cleveland Shoot-Out stroke play tournament on Labor Day Monday, they must participate in five of the weekly skins game events this season. (Past Champions must play in three or more events.) Plan your attendance now to avoid getting shut out!
