A hot putting Mike Armour partnered with Dave Trier to grab second place in the VOE scramble.

The red-hot putting team of Dave Trier and Mike Armour finished in second place at 61. Trier and Armour managed but a par on the ‘gettable’ finishing hole, when a birdie would have matched the winner’s back nine and overall score.

The veteran team of Larry Lahnan and Fred Miller finished third at 10-under par 62.

Fourth place finishers Brian Smith and Ryan Stefanski earned one of two skins won on the day with an eagle-3 on the par-5 second hole. The T5 team of Allen Freeman and Shaun Kloetzer nabbed the round’s other skin with an eagle-3 on the par-5 fourth.

The Nicklaus-designed course has made great strides in conditioning for just its second full year in existence. Based on the comments received, players certainly look forward to returning…
