Greater Cleveland Skins Game: Week 6 Results

Greater Cleveland Skins Game

Greater Cleveland Skins GameA field of just eight players found an opening between rain storms Thursday at Chardon Lakes to complete Week 6 of the 2009 Greater Cleveland Skins Game.

John Niedzialek of Concord, last year’s season-long runner-up, took both pin shots and won a skin on the 200-yard par-3 14th hole by draining his 10 foot putt for birdie. Niedzialek took home $148 on the night and moves up to fourth place in the chase for the Thompson Cup.

Eddie Neer continued his strong play, capturing the other skin on the par-5 17th hole. Skins were worth $92 each and pin shots paid $28 each.

Next week, the Greater Cleveland Skins Game moves to Pleasant Hills near Chardon starting at 4:30 pm where the greens are always in nice shape and the birdies should be flying.

Players are reminded that the top 5 on the leaderboard at mid-season will qualify for this year’s Greater Cleveland Amateur Championship, to be held at Sleepy Hollow Golf Course in Brecksville in August.

Also, one of Ohio’s best paying one-day events for amateurs, The Greater Cleveland Shoot-Out, again will be held on Labor Day this year. Remember, players must participate in five or more Thursday events to be eligible to enter, or be a past Champion and play in 3 or more Thursday events.
