Ace Race recap

Let me start off by saying, damn, do we know how to pick 'em! For the second year in a row we were blessed with absolutely beautiful Fall weather - cool, crisp, sunny, and plenty of color. Yay Mother Nature!

The Ace Race kicked off at about 10 AM with 24 golfers, many of whom were first-timers. This year we threw both rounds at once which helped moved things along faster and also gave everyone a better chance at dialing it in and hitting metal. With almost 60% of the contestants either aceing or hitting metal, I'd say that was a good move!

My group did pretty well with 2 aces and 9 metals. After nailing a beautiful laser on hole 5, I hit chains on 6 and bounced out. It was pretty exciting, none-the-less. Tim Sieger flicked a lazy shot up 15 for his ace and the rest of our group had plenty of near misses.

Joe Atwood also hit hole 5 to tie for second place with Tim in the Ace and metal department. Since there was a Halloween Buzzz up for grabs for second place (donated by Donnie), Tim and Joe had a CTP throw-off on hole 1, which Joe won. Nice job, guys. Tim didn't go home empty-handed though. All winners got homemade cookies, courtesy of Assistant TD, Marcy B., and everyone got some of that delicious cake!
