Week Fourteen Results -- Bolingbrook Golf Club

Saturday at "the 'Brook" was one of the most competitive rounds of the year. On a course that typically yields scores in the upper 90s and 100s, this week's foursome of myself, Brad, Greg, and Pat found relative success in the heat on Saturday. Despite our best efforts, Brad came away the victor for the third straight event shooting an 87 to win by one. The win was in my sights all the way up to our second shots on the final hole. Brad still had 220 yards in and was holding a 2-iron while I was standing in the fairway holding my P-wedge. From there the script was out the window and I collapsed with a double bogey six, while Brad scrambled for bogey and the one stroke win.

Pat had a very good round to take the Net victory with a net 66! In fact, Pat was sitting only three off the lead after the front nine with a tidy 43. Then he held it together on the inward nine, finishing four off the scrath lead.

More congrats to Greg who suffered through a terrible start and shot the best back nine with a 43 to pull within 6 of the final lead. To do this he had to regularly recover from rotten tee shots, and nearly holed out with an iron in hand on three different occasions, most notably on the Par 4 sixth which he nearly eagled from about 85 yards out, and tapped in for birdie.

Here were the results:

Brad: 87, net 75 (1 birdie/6 pars/33 putts/5 fairways/5 gir/33% sand saves)
Pat: 91, net 66 (5 pars/33 putts/7 fairways/3 gir/100% sand saves)
David: 88, net 75 (7 pars/33 putts/7 fairways/7 gir)
Greg: 93, net 77 (1 birdie/5 pars/32 putts/6 fairways/4 gir)
