RESULTS: 2021 NOGA Scratch Four-Ball #2

Great Lakes Auto NOGA Scratch Series

Shaun Kloetzer and Justin Trzebuckowski best used the hour-and-twenty-five-minute rain delay to capture the 2021 Northern Ohio Golf Association’s Great Lakes Auto Scratch Series Four-Ball #2 at Congress Lake Club in Hartville on Monday.

The pair was tied for the lead with just five holes remaining, right before the black skies and sideways rains came. But immediately after play resumed, Kloetzer made a clutch par putt to keep the momentum going, then ran off two birdies in their last four holes on the front side at Congress to finish at 8-under par 63.

Trzebuckowski rolled home five birdies on the day as Kloetzer made three, earning them a two-shot victory over the tied-for-second place teams of Derek Gordon + Nathan Mullen and current NOGA POY points leader Aaron Crewse + Bob Henighan.

“It was one of those rounds where if one person was out of a hole or in trouble, the other person stepped up every time,” Kloetzer said. “We didn’t make any bogeys which is always big, and we made pretty much every putt we had inside 8-10 feet. When you put all of that together, it was a great round.”

“Sean came out of the rain delay firing, so it made it easy on me,” Trzebuckowski said. “It took pressure of me towards the end. The first part of the round we were ham and egging it. I dropped some birdies in before the rain delay and he came out on the par-3 and made a big par save.”

In the Senior Division, Tom Laubacher put together a five-birdie day and a 67 on his own ball, as he and partner Mike Cassell finished with solid 5-under par 66, good for a two shot victory over Mark Borlin and Allen Freeman.

The next Scratch Series event is the NOGA Great Lakes Auto Stroke Play #2 at Tippecanoe Country Club in Canfield on Monday, July 12th.
