Annual Miniature Golf Tournament
38th Annual Miniature Golf Tournament Summary
August 17 and 18, 2019
What a great weekend it was for our 38th Annual Tournament! The course was in beautiful condition and the competitors were ready to give it their best.
After day one all eyes were on Dylan Koerner as he pushed his way to the top of the leaderboard with a first round score of 39 and a tournament low score of 35 in round two to open up just a two stroke lead over Pat Sheridan who also turned in impressive rounds of 37 and 39.
The final round was now set up for excitement as both of these tournament veterans were very familiar with competition at the top of the leaderboard. The final round did not disappoint those watching the leaders. After three holes the match was tied and remained in virtual dead heat for the duration. Pat was able to take a one stroke lead to the back nine thanks to an ace on #8. By the 13th hole all was tied again and the two leaders matched stroke for stroke all the way to the
Dylan's tee shot on #18 ended up just eighteen inches from the hole
and it looked like he was assured of at least a playoff for the championship. That’s when the Penguin moved in for the ‘krill’ and stunned all onlookers with an ace to take the championship with one last ‘waddle’ of the club.
Congratulations and $100 to ‘The Penguin’ on his first Farmington Miniature Golf tournament victory!
In our Division 2 match, Carter Rion (another tournament veteran)
was able to hold off a come from behind surge by Glenda Ryning by just
one stroke to win in his division! Carters energy and enthusiasm is always a tournament asset and it was a pleasure to witness his well earned victory this year.
Hole in one winners included Tim Stratton, Dick Stratton, and Chris
Kulig. A special shout out and thank you also goes out to Henry Eagan, our youngest participant.
As always an important winner in this tournament is the Jimmy Fund and UCONN Childrens Cancer Fund. This year we were able to raise $400 for these tremendous causes.
Thank You to all participants for joining us this year. HAPPY
SUMMER and STRAIGHT PUTTS to all!
