Double-Douche Don

We had a small but motivated group show up for our Douche Bag Invitational on 9/24 at Brooksville Country Club. Unfortunately, they were mostly not motivated to dress as a DB would.

Don Nogiewich decided to not fall apart too much this time and took home his first win of the season. He becomes the chapter's second Double-Douche joining Hollywood McNeal with that dubious honor.

The only other thing I want to highlight from this event is the incredible score of Troy McNeal. He was actually in first place for a few minutes midway through the back nine before finishing 8-7-6-11 (16 over par) on the last four holes. This effort (or lack thereof) won Troy the Meltdown Award (45-57), the Played Like Shit Award (net 82) and the Key to the Red Tee award (102). He's now ready for MGAWC22. Well done Hollywood!

Playing from the blue tees, Wayne was still able to scratch out a good enough score to stay atop the Chapter Money List by 4 cents. One more tournament to go to see who wins that trophy. The top 5 on the list now are still mathematically in play for this so it's still up in the air. May the least mediocre man win.

And the last award given out was the winner of the first Last Medio Standing Duel-Off. This single-elimination tournament was held from June through September. The final between Mike Robin and Marion Kelley was a match for the ages. Marion, still hobbled by his ACL injury, was getting 23 strokes from Mike. But that was only fair as the final results bear out. Marion played the round of his life for 15 holes. He shot 44 on the front nine with two birdies and was 2 UP at the turn even though Mike shot a sizzling 39! Marion increased his lead to 3 UP on the 10th with a par but was starting to tire. Marion was still 3 UP after the 12th hole and 2 UP after the 15th. But alas, it was not to be. Mike ended up with another 39 on the back nine and won the last three holes to win the match 1 UP. Kudos to both players for a match well played.
