Zoar Golf Club hosted their annual Spring 2-Man Spring Scramble on Saturday afternoon. 42 teams competed in the windy, cloudy and cold weather.
Mike Simpson and Dave Oates fired a stellar 11-under par 61 to claim first place honors by a whopping five shots. Their round was highlighted by three chip-ins: two for birdies and one for an eagle.
Mitch Levengood and Tim Hepner were next at 66, which is a great score on its own given the weather conditions — except when compared to the champions.
Five teams tied for third place at 67 strokes: Mark Schneider and Maxwell Moldovan, Brandon and Lonnie Wengerd, Eric Crone and John Sibila, Kenny and Austin Koprivec, and Ryan Stefanski and Brian Smith all posted scores at 5-under par.
Four teams tied at 68 for 8th place money: Adam Trent and Dean Cutlip, Troy Schonover and Scottie McVey, Chris Barnett and Bob Beck, and Andy Slayman with Mike Renner.
There were two skins won on the day: the winning Simpson-Oates team with a chip-in eagle on Hole 17; and Team Wengerd had an eagle on the par-5 Hole 7.
The next amateur event at Zoar Golf Club is the 36-hole Zoar Memorial on the Saturday/Sunday of Memorial Day weekend.
