Men’s Golf League
Bryan Black’s night got off to a slow start with a bogey on #1, and then he watched his drive on #3 bounce down the road toward town. While the average golfer would’ve chalked it up to a bad night and taken whatever the golf Gods dished out, Bryan proceeded to hole out in three more shots for a bogey 5, and then played the next six holes in 4-under– including an eagle 2 on #4– to finish with a medalist round of 2-under par 33 on the night. Black led his Hotshots to a 4.5 to 0.5 win over Jean Construction and garnished two skins along the way. Nice night Bryan!
Ed Wiegel’s 37 led Legends II to a 5-0 shutout of DDS. Legends II got solid rounds from everyone on the team to take low net on the night at 125 and move into first place in the standings. Torry Thuli fired a 38 and John Knellwolf a 39 for DDS.
The New Guys knocked Fritz’s Burners out of first place with a 4-1 victory, and My Turn Pub jumped into second place with a 4-1 win over Wagner’s. Aric Barnard and Lucas Ritchie each shot 2-over 37s to lead Avon Locker to a 4-1 win over Mexican Cheese, and Legends got by The Club 3.5-1.5.
In the final match of the night, Brent Tuescher’s 36 and Adam Reichling’s 37 lead Reilly Plumbing to a split with Blackbourn’s as Harry Lee carded a 37 for the men of the “Burg”.
