Lieutenant First Class Special Forces Green Beret Sniper Division Jarrod Ballou wins at Clear Creek to move into a tie with Craig Colbert and John Nole for 6th place in all-time career wins in the League. Lieutenant Ballou was in full sniper mode at Clear Creek picking off all insurgents who entered in his leader board kill zone. There was a few who gave up peacefully when they saw they had no chance to win like Rookie Joe Eckford, Captain Roland Turner, and League Director Tony Barnett. They all just pretty must lay their arms down and surrender to Jarrod Ballou pinpoint marksmanship. The first unsuspecting victim was Lonnie Knowles who has multiple victories at Clear Creek and was playing in the same group Lieutenant Ballou, Jarrod just simply tossed Lonnie a grenade on 11 and 13 for his demise. The next insurgent was a senior Eldridge Daniels who tried to sneak up on Jarrod by playing one tee box up. It didn't work on 17 Jarrod made par and Daniels was hit right between the eyes with a triple bogey. Pops never felt a thing (RIP). Next up was Adam Orta who managed to exchange some shots with Ballou, but on 13 in the same sniper nest where he killed Knowles, he mortally wounded Adam who bled out on 18 giving a fourth-place finish. The last two insurgents worked in pairs Hall of Famers Jamie Villarreal and Gabe Ramos trying to get Sniper Ballou to reveal his position on top of the leader board. Lieutenant First Class Special Forces Green Beret Sniper Division Jarrod Ballou was having none of the trickery he finished Army Strong on the last 6 holes even par and killed them both with one shot 172 yards 5 iron right to the back on the head on 17 with the only thing left to do on 18 was to count the bodies and receive his medal of honor on a job well done. Congratulations Jarrod Ballou!
