KELLEY: Solid play sends KCC squad to Liberty Cup title

The 2013 Liberty Cup was conducted recently at the Kokomo Country Club. This prestigious event, pitting 20-member teams from each of the local courses, was won by the host KCC team with a total of 534 points. In second place was the Chippendale team with 504, which barely beat third-place American Legion (503). Defending champion Wildcat Creek finished last with 497.

The KCC team won it with fine play in each of the divisions. KCC tied Wildcat Creek with 173 points from the scratch players. The KCC women posted 119 points, besting Chippendale by two points. But where the KCC team dominated was in the men’s net division, racking up 242 points. That beat Chippendale by 17 points, the Legion team by 22 points and Wildcat Creek by 29 points. With each division allowing the two worst scores to be dropped, Wildcat was hurt when three players in the net division had bad days meaning it had to count more bogeys costing it second place. If you sum up all eight men’s net players, the KCC team was seven-over par and everyone else was at least 35 over.

Looking into the statistics further, here are some observations. The KCC team had a total of 248 scores of par or better. Next best was Chippendale with 210, then Legion with 207 and Wildcat with 202. This meant that the KCC team had to count only 13 bogeys into its team total.

Overall, the KCC had four players shoot net under par. Cindy Harrold led the way with a net 63 with her career-best score of 85. Chris Linville was four-under net and Brian Cossell and Terry Heltzel were one-under. Chippendale had two players under par net. Maggie Pridemore was four-under as she shot a fine 87 with a 21 handicap for a 66 net. Steve Felix was one-under net. The Legion’s Bryan Foreman was two-under and Wildcat’s Mark Waldron was also two-under.
