Pam Houle was strong and steady, with 4 “Birdies” on the way to an even 100 score (78 scratch, plus 22 handicap), to earn the $60 First Place prize, edging out Mat Hall by one stroke at 101 (82 scratch plus 19 handicap) for $30. Front Nine honors went to Justin Lapponese with a “Hole-in-One” on the “9th Hole” for a 52 (38 + 14), while Larry Garwacki took the Back Nine prize, also with a 52 (46 + 6). They each took home $12.
We look forward to repeat events sometime during the regular season, after reviewing how the handicaps worked out and other potential rule changes. This format may be used by anyone, adapted as needed, with a large group or one on one. We welcome suggestions, and additional test or competitive data (bowlers’ regular game averages & scratch scores/balls rolled) to refine the handicaps.
