OKdG401

What a season it has been to date. We have seen almost 60 different players come through the league this year and we are now down to our final 2 events with just a few remaining at the end to become the 2019 Live Free Golf Season Preview. Whats on the line, other than this absolute gem of a trophy that will have your name etched in it till the end of time, or we get a new plaque, also the winner will receive a custom 2019 LFG Season Champion bag, Free Membership card for the following season and some other cool things yet to be decided.

The Champs golf bag, will look like a golf bag. 

 

 

Throughout the year, we have had few players per event who are able to shoot under par and those who did finished well. At our last event played at Stonebridge this year which was won by Eric White who fired a -5 67 had 10 different players who were able to shoot under par. Eric White looks to be in good shape as he enters this event. Last time out, Eric played lights out and fired a Gross 86, when he is playing his game Eric can be a solid golfer who will find fairways, get near greens and has a more than good enough short game to get up and down for pars. Ben Edwards who actually tied for first and lost in a card off shot a very nice 87 himself last time out at “The bridge” His handicap has stayed the same throughout the year and if Ben can go out and shoot another 87 will again find himself in contention to take down tomorrows event. 

Some other notable scores from the last event at Stonebridge was Chuck Hobbs who shot a -4, Scott Smith and Rich Roussin who each finished at -3, Scotty Sheehan firing a -2, and Dwayne Davis at -1. These guys all have the ability to put the round together tomorrow and take down the title tomorrow. Anyone who is in the top 12 of the standings currently, and with a win tomorrow will for sure put themselves in position to win the season long title with a great finish at our championship to be played at Atkinson on Sept 8th. 

I’ve got to be honest, I have sucked this year and my handicap is showing it but I am getting 16 strokes tomorrow and If I don’t have a strong finish I may debate quitting the game but that’s a story for another day. Am I my Favorite? maybe. Could I 3 putt 7 holes? Absolutely. We will just have to wait to see what happens. 

Corey Hartson, who somehow shot an 81 at our last event. To the amazement of so many, who just could not fathom how somehow who is normally such a mediocre to poor player, could go out, hit like 25 putts for the round when his average is 45+ and eagle a daunting 18th hole to coast to a victory. Hartson will look to catch lightning in a bottle again tomorrow and make one of the best comebacks in LFG history has he moved up from 24th to 13th last event and with another win will move up into the top 5. Stonebridge does set up well for Corey who has the back of an 83 year old man but still manages to the be one of the longer hitters on tour. 

I have a feeling that something in the area of -7 or so is going to win tomorrow, the course is in absolutely great shape and the greens will be getting aerated on Monday which means we will be basically playing on the greens in the best shape they can be in. I was able to get a round in last weekend and can verify that the course is in great shape. 

My Favorite: Tom Boland 91/65
