Glacier Greens Men’s Shoot-Out going right down to the wire

Clear skies and warm temperatures greeted the participants in round two of the Glacier Greens Men’s Shoot-Out on May 7. Team scramble was the format.

A few changes at the top of the gross side with the father and son team of Mike and Terran Berger taking over the lead with a two-day total of 132. One stroke back at 133 is another father and son team of Bob and Jeff Edwards. It should be a real dog fight this Saturday when these two families are paired for the final round of the tournament and the alternate shot format.

In third place with 134 is Barry Norris and Willie Oliver. Rob Borland and Steve Peters are fourth with 135. Tied for fifth with 138 is Darell Fieber and Brian Goodwin along with Steve Blacklock with Fabian McCarty.

It’s not a commanding lead, but on the net side the team of Len Doyle and Wayne Wood are still leading with a two-day total of 106. Greg Conway and Art Trto are very close with 107.

The following three teams are tied for third place with 109: Norm Fellbaum and Pat Renaud, Dave Buckley-Jones and Wayne Ogilvie as well as Wayne Hay and Nick Stolarchuck.

Team KPs went to Bob and Jeff Edwards on #4 sponsored by Scott Fraser of Royal LePage, Henry Bonde and Claude Dufault on #7 sponsored by Scott Smith of Cobra Golf, Bob and Jeff Edwards on #12 sponsored by Gary Wiebe of Boston Pizza, Jim and Clint Perry on #15 sponsored by Bill Kelly of Bill Kelly Golf, and to Clint Hartery and Mike Pollock on #17 sponsored by Bill Girard of Canadian Western Bank.

This Saturday, May 14 will be the final day of the 2016 Shoot-Out and it will be the interesting and sometimes dreaded alternate shot format. This year all teams must decide before the first ball is teed who will hit from the even tees and who will hit from the odd tees.

“I’m sure if you’re at the Comox air terminal and you listen closely you will hear the term ‘Sorry partner’ coming from the Glacier Greens Golf Course,” said Saturday Men’s coordinator Len Doyle.
