Montiel Monday Night Doubles starts hot!
Tom Vincent, winner of the Fall/Winter Doubles Series started out hot again, partnering with Stephen Brown to shoot 15-under and win the first week of the new series. Tom and Stephen won a CTP playoff with Dan Ford and Scottie Bowers, after a four hole sudden-death playoff failed to settle the matter. Dan was able to soothe the pain by counting his winnings from the ace pot – he won $83 by acing hole #3 from the long teepad.
Scott Miller and Don Vincent took 3rd after a CTP playoff win over A.J. Risley and Ron Lehmel, who had tied at 13-under. There were 25 players for the first week of the series. Not a bad turnout considering it coincided with the NCAA Basketball Finals game. The league will run until October, with sign-ups starting at 5pm each Monday at Montiel Park. There’s a chance the series will alternate between Montiel and CSUSM – there’s a sponsorship deal in the works with a business close to CSUSM.
