Tater Hill Golf Club
The Tater Hill "member guest" was recently played, this after two postponements.
After the 18 holes of the "two person best ball format was concluded, we had three ladies teams tied and two mens' teams also tied.
The sudden death playoff started on hole 10 for the women. Huguette Fournier and Carol Peckam, Barbara Lettenberger and Mary Jane Clark along with Jane Becker and partner Ingrid Kjeldson headed down #10.
Fournier and Peckam saw trouble around the green with the two other groups battling out a win for the crown.
Lettenberger was first to put, as the 20-footer slid by, she had a three-footer for a net four.
Meanwhile Kjeldson had a 15-footer for a net eagle and waiting in the wings was Becker, anxious to slam home an eight-footer for the same score. Kjeldson didn't wait for her partner as she made her net three on the par five to take the champion title.
Meanwhile the men were playing down #18 to fight for the crown. The approach shots into the treacherous 18th hole saw Dave Surette and Tom Donovan never out of place while Emmanuel and Mohlenhoff wavered a bit coming in to the green.
All had 20 to 30 footers for birdies and pars, but it was Donovan who punched a wedge to five feet from the fairway and drained the putt for an impressive net eagle.
Emmanuel played a stellar round, shooting an all-time best 80 in competition, while Surette fired a 72 on his own ball to help get his team into the playoff.
