RESULTS: 2015 ADGA Golf Galaxy 4-M Scramble

2015 ADGA Golf Galaxy 4-M Scramble Winners

ADGAThe importance of reading and understanding the rules sheet provided at the start of a competitive event was never more clear than after the 2015 Akron District Golf Association’s Golf Galaxy 4-Man Scramble on Sunday, May 24th.

The team of Alex Loftin, Adam Trent, Ian Holt, and Brandon Nixon shot what appeared to be a score of 18-under par to tie the leaders in the clubhouse. But then it came to light that they did not follow the rules posted on the sheet that a ball chosen for play from the rough must be played down by the first player and legally dropped by subsequent players; they simply tossed down a ball for the first several holes until the rule was pointed out to them. That mistake led to the their disqualification — and a tough learning experience.

The team of Tim Morrow, Matt Gursha, Jake Fait and Griffin Todd (pictured above left to right) were the benefactors of that rules snafu. That foursome also posted a score of 18-under par 54 as well, and with the DQ it was good for a solo one shot victory over two teams.

In the Senior Division, a hole-out eagle 2 on the par-4 sixth hole jump-started the team of Mark Thomas, Sam Spino Jr, Tom Seever and Doug Rockich as they posted an 18-under par 54 to win by a whopping three shots over three other teams.
