The inaugural Seatac ace pot got off to a good start. 8 folks showed in surprisingly very pleasant weather and played a 20-hole format (par 60).
We had no aces but one field ace resulting from a format variation proposed by Jub (why?!?!
) - in addition to having field aces on holes 12, 14-18 the variation was to also have field aces for just the Ams on holes 3, 6, and 11. Congrats to Rahn (who opportunistically stepped into this TDs blunder of going along with the variation) drilling a sidearm roughly 400ft on hole 6 setting up a 30ft putt and taking home 75% of the $16 (I'm not sure if we'll be doing the field ace on those holes again! That, or forced upgrades at the TDs discretion... hmm).
Results otherwise looked like this:
Rahn Henderson 72
Brian Haze 74
Brent Smith/Jub 79
Matthew Gill 63
Bjorn Pinney 67
Frank Lewis 71
So, state of the ace pot is at $15 after the 25% remainder and contributions by the club to bolster it. Next op to take some runs at aces will be April 26
