New Hampshire Major #2 Preview
Things are about to heat up, no pun intended, as our 2nd Major and Regular season Finale takes place tomorrow at the Gorgeous Nippo Lake Golf Club in Barrington. Currently Scott Sheehan holds a 25 point lead over Ben Edwards but with Edwards consistent play as of late, and a course that sets up to his game he could easily surpass and take the points lead going into the playoffs.
Anyone currently in the top 10 could really make a big jump with a victory tomorrow and some other things falling into place, it looks to be an exciting day on the links for the boys and should be interesting how things shape up come playoff time.
As far as tomorrows round, the course plays just a 5500 yard par 70 and is the first look for a lot of us, so it truly does look to be a wide open event. I am going to brag and tell you, I love my chances as I am a big advocate of hitting irons off the tees but I will find a way to fuck it up and lose out in the end. Chris and Rich Roussin, Scott Smith and Mark Trembley have been hiking in this extreme heat so it will be a herculean effort to go out and shoot a great round, but I would not put it past one of them.
We do have some ringers coming in tomorrow and I think Jim Tokanel could piece together a good round and go shoot a 71/66 to take this down. Eric white will be coming back from taking the last event off to be able to stay fresh and feels energized coming into this event. He can keep his irons in play and pick his way around the course and I expect a top finish for him. John Theriault has been playing very well, if he drains putts tomorrow he could run away with this for a 2nd consecutive win as well. All I Know is that it should be a fun and hot round.
Presidents Prediction: Paul Micali will break 100!
