….. and we’re ‘back in the game’!!
Our Regular Inter-club team pulled off a hard fought first win of the season yesterday against Salem Glen, coming out on top 42.5 to 37.5.
Each match was hotly contested, and every point mattered.
In the first match, Team Tanglewood sent out two of the ‘big dogs’ — Kent Shelton and Stephen Dunn. Unfortunately, Salem Glen had some big dogs of their own.
Kent and Stephen shot 66 and 67, respectively, but ended up coming out just short, losing 1 down. The highest score in the foursome was a two-under 68!
In our second match, the father/son duo of John and Eli Kennedy had to give up a bunch of strokes, but never backed down. The largest lead for either team was +1, and the Kennedy’s pulled out a hard fought halve.
In Match three, our Inter-club ‘stallion’ BJ Richardson shot a stellar 75, helping his team build a big initial lead early, and fending off an impressive Salem Glen rally.
The Salem Glen pair shot a best ball -4 from holes eight thru 16 to tie the match, but timely pars on 17 and 18 allowed Team Tanglewood to pull off a 2-up win.
In the fourth and final match, Team Tanglewood rode the hot hand of Rodie Marovich on front nine, and the hot OTHER hand of Jim Williams on the back nine, to pull off another 2-up win.
This first win leaves Tanglewood at 1-2 in the Pod, but gets us back on track to make a late season push towards the playoffs.
