CHAD ADAWAY

 

SUN SHINE BLUE SKIES

We ended the week with so many unforeseen turns of events. First, the venues changed at the last minute. Next,  there was an 85% chance of rain. Lastly and certainly not least was a matrix glitch in golf genius. This tournament had all the making to be disastrous.
Surprisingly, Pasadena Municipal Golf Course turned out to be a very suitable replacement for Oak Hurst on such short notice. We may put it on the 2022 schedule. 
Secondly, wow! the rain! The rain held out long enough to finish 18 holes before all the precipitation in the gulf was released. I had Noah and the ark on speed dial...just in case.
The last unexpected twist of events was this infamous glitch with Golf Genius. The tournament was accidentally modified so there wouldn't be anything counted higher than a double bogey. This modification gained some strokes for a few players, putting them in a higher position after the event.  Ron Falan, a newcomer, and Joe Hart were the two players most affected by this mistake.  Once I noticed it, I called them to explain, and they understood what happened.  This glitch could have turned ugly, but the guys were understanding.Well, as for the tournament, it was extremely close. Just about half the field was within three shots of the lead. Ian Cerisano and Joe Eckford finished three back from the leaders. Joe appears to have a poor start on most of his tournaments. In my opinion, he needs to get to the course at least an hour earlier to stretch and hit balls. I'm not quite sure who's his manager, but he needs to be fired. His 48 on the front will not get it done. Ian shot lights out on the front nine with a 35, the lowest in the field, and he had 41 on the back nine. This was too many for his skill level. He finished with a pair of 72, two back of the leader were another newcomer, Benny Gomez, and the player who has been with me the longest, Jarrod Ballou. There was a traffic log of players coming in one behind the leaders with a 71. Robert Martinez, Joe Hart, Sean Hinton, and Jaime Villarreal. Hart and Martinez go bogey bogey on 17 and 18 to lose. Sean is starting to find his groove in the league. He shot five over on the par fives and pretty steady on the rest of the holes. Once Sean discovers that the par fives are his friends, he will be walking in the winner circle. Villarreal has his 13th win on the tee box of 18, but he forgot it on the 18 hole match and not 17. His triple-bogey, along with poor course management, cost him dearly.  This gave him another third-place finish. Newcomer Ron Falan was also very generous and jittery on the closing holes. On 13 in the middle in the rain, he made a showman. I didn't think this was technically or physically possible, but he did it.  During the last three closing holes, he went four over tying with Chad Adaway. Chad hadn't won since his rookie debut win in 2020 at Gus Wortham. He played solid all around. Chad's birdie and the most challenging hole gave him the win in a scorecard playoff. Congratulations, Mr. Adaway. I know how much you wanted to get back in the winner's circle.
