It was a night of the “double-dips” as 21 players competed at Quail Hollow Golf Club’s Devlin Course this Thursday in the Greater Cleveland Skins Game.
2008 Champion Steve Blackburn Jr. of Willowick moved to the top of this year’s leaderboard with a four birdie night, capturing a skin and a pin shot with a double-dip on the 155-yard par-3 fourth hole.
George Martin of Twinsburg made his 2009 Skins Game debut at Quail a worthwhile one, as he also double-dipped by picking up a skin with an eagle on the par-5 5th hole, and a pin shot on the par-3 ninth.
Finally, Joe Tasca of Concord picked up the last skin and pin shot combo on the 165-yard par-3 6th hole.
Each skin earned $157.50, while the pin shots were worth $52.50. Thus Blackburn Jr., Martin, and Tasca each took home $210 on the night.
Thanks to Quail Hollow Head Pro Olle Karlstrom and member Nick Cerri for hosting the Greater Cleveland Skins Game players at Quail Hollow.
Also, a schedule update was announced today, as the beautiful Madison Country Club has been added to the the Greater Cleveland Skins Game schedule for July 23, with a $25.00 greens fee rate.
