Akron District Golf AssociationJohn Kabasky buried a critical putt on the windswept 18th hole at Ellsworth Meadows Golf Course on Saturday at the Akron District Golf Association’s Nick Lazor 2-Man Better Ball. The key make pushed he and partner Mike Simpson into a tie for first place with clubhouse leaders Ty Kovach and Ken Koprivec.

Both teams finished at the top at 7-under par 64.

On a beautiful day that turned a bit blustery late, Koprivec made two eagles and three birdies on his own ball while Kovach held down some key pars to maintain their team’s momentum.

Mike Simpson
Mike Simpson rolls home a birdie putt at Ellsworth Meadows’ 10th in the Lazor 2-Man Better Ball.

Kabasky and Simpson were more ham-and-egg in their scoring, with Kabasky noting half-jokingly that the holes Simpson actually finished often worked out as a birdie for the team.

The tie at the top in the Championship Division was two shots clear of the third place finishers, Steve Blackburn Jr. and Howard Clendenin.
