BIRDIE HUNTERS of the week
Six birds fell to the hunters this week: CHANG – 2; MILES – 2; JOE – 1; and Kiichi – 1. Miles booming drive against the wind on the tough 4th hole par 4 gave him a rare birdie on the hole. Kiichi drilled his 2nd shot on the 2nd hole to 6 feet of the pin and nailed it dead center. However, his two pars on 16th and 17th were probably the most impressive because of the strong head wind coming down the stretch.
A GROSS 78 secures 1st place
CHANG HEE JEAW took the 1st place purse with his practically error-free round. He sizzled with a 38 going out and played conservatively in the back coming in with a 40. KIICHI KUMAGAI made a few errors like a triple bogie 7 on the toughest hole on the course but still managed to turn in a respectable round with a hot putter. He saved quite a few pars on the way to an 84 which was good for 2nd place.
SKIN GAME THRILLER
The hunters decided to have a group skins game at the first tee. That must have inspired everyone to go for the birds. Chang took home big loot. His excellent game returned 7 skins – best of the lot.
