Amherst Country Club Preview
Well, we have finally made it to the opening event for Live Free Golfs 3rd season and this shapes up to be a real barn burner. A lot of the famaliar faces are back this year with the likes of Dan Lacourse, John Therriault, Chris Roussin to name few. We have some new faces this year as it looks as if Aaron Abood will be more of a consistent player on the tour for hopefully years to come.
Defending season long champion Pat Blair comes into this season looking to defend his title. Pat who started last season as a 24 cap had an impreessive season and will be coming into this season looking to play slightly better than bogey golf as he now has an 18 Cap.
Amherst was a real strong suit last year, especially for Dan Lacourse as he was able to fire out a 78 last year at Amherst on his way to a victory in our first playoff event. I expect much of the same from Lacourse although now he will be playing as a 13 cap which means he will in fact need to do shoot his best.
Tim Woodger is playing with a bum shoulder which has helped his cap get raise by a few strokes but having played against him the other day, it is evident even though he is injured he has still found some shots that work for him and could potentially put out a sub 90 round tomorrow.
The Scott Sheehan, Roussin, Trembley, Edwards 4some should be interesting. Scotty Sheehan hits the shit out the ball and if he can put a few wedges close he easily can take this event home. He also played the course today so as a level of comfort going into the event.
Chris Roussin will be looking to have a bounce back year after a rough 2017. “I know I have the potential to play well, i just need to piece it together” Which I think he could easily do. Chris is a talented player and could have a successful season.
Live Free will have another exciting underway come tomorrow at 9:30AM and I am looking forward to another competitive and fun season and Live Free is going to do his best to really challenge our players to shoot under par.
MY PREDICTION: Scott Sheehan 82/69
