KELLEY: Solid play sends KCC squad to Liberty Cup title

(Continued)

Top gross scores were 72s by KCC’s Mike Maddox, Chippendale’s Eric Tuchscherer and the Legion’s Kurt Koetter. Colby McIlrath and Dave Eikenberry scored 73s on their home course. Next best were 74s by KCC’s Chris Linville and Wildcat’s Jeff Rudolph and Ray Poat. Top women’s scores were the rounds by Harrold and Pridemore followed by Ellen Hart’s score of 88.

It appears it just came down to the KCC team playing its home course better than the other teams. Next year the event moves to Wildcat Creek where it will be aiming to capture its second Liberty Cup.

UNUSUAL OCCURRENCES

While watching golf a couple of weeks ago I saw something unusual happen, not once but twice in one weekend. In the PGA Tour Playoffs, U.S. Open champion Justin Rose was taking practice swings behind his ball in line with his target. Unfortunately, one of his swings hit the ground, made a divot and the divot flew forward hitting his golf ball causing it to move resulting in a penalty stroke. Then the next day on the Buy.com Tour, Hudson Swafford did exactly the same thing. So, if there is anything to be learned here it is to make sure you can’t strike anything that could hit your ball while taking practice swings. Better yet, skip the practice swings on full shots. You don’t really need them.

PLAYOFFS

The PGA Tour playoffs have concluded with Henrik Stenson capturing the Coca-Cola Championship and also the Fed-Ex Cup. The Swede racked up over $11 million on one weekend! The Buy.com playoffs conclude this weekend. Players there are fighting for their PGA Tour playing privileges for 2014.

Next on the 2013 golf schedule will be the President’s Cup. That should be entertaining as the competitive juices flow for one’s country or team. Hopefully the U.S. can make up for last year’s Ryder Cup defeat.
