Jeff Covert and Aaron Crewse won The Fairways at Twin Lakes July 2-Man Scramble on Sunday in Kent by five shots.
They set a scoring record of 9-under par 26 on their first nine holes, and they did it after making a par at the first hole.
An eagle at the third combined with birdies on the other seven will do that.
They shot a more human 3-under par back nine to finish at 12-under par 58 for the day, to win by a mere 5 shots.
Most surprising of all, the majority of the hole locations were brand new to the event and much more difficult than they have been for the previous three scrambles of the 2013 season. But still they shot 26 the first go-around.
With a nice field of 26 teams competing, Covert and Crewse nabbed a tidy $720 for first.
Did I mention they won by 5 shots?
Seven teams tied for second place at 7-under par 63, each netting $195.
There were no outright skins won on the day, but two ‘least tied’ holes were split: two birdies at hole #2; two eagles at hole #12.
And yes, Covert and Crewse nabbed one of the quartered skins with their birdie at the second hole.
Which makes for a nice four-figure day.
