Eddie Neer of Lyndhurst jumped straight to the top of the Greater Cleveland Skins Game leaderboard with a birdie at the difficult par-4 15th hole at Fowlers Mill on Thursday. Neer’s birdie was the only skin of the night and sent him home with $299 in his pocket.
Birdies were scarce under the beautiful blue skies at Fowlers Mill, as only 3 holes were birdied by the 13 man field. Neer carved in a 7 iron through the trees from the right rough on the 15th hole, leaving himself only a 4-footer for birdie.
Pin shot winners were Russ Rybka on the 13th hole and Steve Blackburn Jr. on the 17th hole. Pin shot winners took home $45.50 each.
Neer’s season total of $323.50 after week four puts him in the driver’s seat to gain his first trip to the Greater Cleveland Amateur Championship at Sleepy Hollow in Brecksville in August, as the top 5 players at midseason qualify for that event.
The Greater Cleveland Skins game moves to Quail Hollow Country Club on Thursday, May 21 starting at 5pm. All amateur players are welcome to participate in the weekly skins game event with an entry fee of $30. A special green fee rate of $25 with cart has been extended to Greater Cleveland Skins Game players at Quail. Please note that a dress code will be enforced, with no jeans permitted and collared shirts required.
