A pair of teams tied at the top for the 2015 Joe Ungvary Sr. Memorial 2-Player Jumble at Good Park Golf Course in Akron on Saturday. Six holes each of scramble, better ball and alternate shot shot make up the format for this always interesting event.
Finishing at 5-under par 66, the team of Brandon Shannon and Nick Paxos tied with the team of Aaron Crewse and Nick Lambos.
The big winners on the day were Crewse and Lambos, as their outright win in the Better Ball segment put them over the top as the day’s money leaders. As a team they earned $867 vs. $742 for Shannon and Paxos.
The Alternate Shot format made the difference in the event, though. Crewse and Lambos were well on their way to victory until a 2-shot swing at the par-5 13th, where they made bogey to Shannon and Paxos birdie, left them tied. Both teams parred out from there.
Dave Sotka and Nick Anagnost could have joined the top two teams at 5-under par, but they missed tricky putt for par on the 18th hole. That bogey left them one shy of a tie for first place in the Alternate Shot and Overall, but their birdie on the 16th hole earned them a share of a skin and a $702 total haul.
Also having good days were the teams of Mike Armour and Dave Trier, winning the Scramble portion at 5-under par 19, and Jim Cea and Ronnie Bell, who cashed in two segments and won a share of a skin. Those two teams tied for fourth place overall.
