Cherokee Village Men's Golf Association
Both a one best ball and a Firecracker event were offered for play at the South Course on June 17. The firecracker game requires that one member of each foursome be designated to hit from the red tees and play his ball to the cup, while his partners scramble from the gold tees. The two scores are then totaled for each hole. Each golfer must be a fire cracker four times and the firecracker for the remaining two holes is usually played by the partner who is "hot." Forty-four golfers played in the Firecracker event, while nine "purists" signed up for the one best ball threesome game.
The highlight of the day (maybe for the season) occurred in the Niners scramble. A dream team (Zable, Barnett, Gammie, Weisman) birdied hole one and kept draining putts from all distances and angles, ending up with seven birdies out of nine holes played for a score of 29. Score cards will be available upon request. Eat your heart out, Tiger!
Dream Team and other event winners are:
1st: P. Pidrak, C. Taylor, J. Hudson, C. Sinclair
2nd: B. Wade, B. Berger, C. Garrett, B. Wellman
1st: W. Brooks, B. Smith, C. Mengert, R. Luchau
