Summary of the Action
Team Abrams, the 1st group out, was leading after nine holes, with 39 points, followed by Team Wilcox (3rd group) and Douglas (4th group) with 37, and Team Doss (2nd group) with 36. On holes 10-12, Team Abrams struggled, scoring only 9 points, for a 12-hole total of 48, while Team Wilcox surged, scoring 16 points for a total of 53. Team Douglas also had issues, scoring only 8 points for a total of 45 while Team Doss jumped into second place scoring 15 points for a total of 51.
Team Wilcox failed to score any points on the Par 3 13th, but somehow bounced back to score 9 more on the next two holes for a 15 hole total of 62. Team Doss scored 11 points on the same stretch, and caught up and tied Team Wilcox at 62. Team Abrams also surged, scoring 13 points and getting to 1 point behind the leaders with 61. Team Douglas continued to falter, scoring only 8 more points for a total of 53.
On the par 4 16th, Team Wilcox scored 5 points but Team Doss scored 4 to drop one point back. Team Abrams scored 5 to tie for second place with Team Doss.
Team Wilcox carded two pars on the par 3 17th for a total of 4 points. Team Abrams also had two pars, but it was a stroke hole for Denny Seiwell and his net birdie earned his team a total of 5 points and a tie for 1st place. Team Doss scored a total of 3 points on the 17th, which put them 2 points back heading into the 18th hole.
On the Par 5 finishing hole, Team Abrams had some problems. Karl Morris and Denny both shot double bogies, and contributed no points to their team. Steve Abrams shot a bogey, earning his team 1 point, and Kevin O'Connor sunk his birdie putt to add 4 points for a total of 5 on the last hole and an 18 hole total of 75.
Team Doss headed into 18 needing 6 points to tie and 7 points to take over the lead from Team Abrams. That means they would have needed at least 1 net and 1 gross birdie to tie. They got the net birdie thanks to Wesley Doss, but the best they could do for a gross score was par, and ended up 1 point back of Team Abrams.
Now we come to team Wilcox, who headed into the 18th hole with 71 points and needed only 5 points (a par and birdie, or eagle and bogie) to secure 1st place. John Dimon took a bogie and 1 point. Tim Jarnot and Brian Tanaka also took bogies, but both got a stroke for net pars and 2 points. So, now it was up to JC, who was on the green in regulation and putting for birdie. If he makes it, his team wins . . .
And he makes it!
