Powered by the teams of Matt Dalhamer/Ron de la Cruz, Josh Dalhmer/Bryce Leon and Mark Shaffer/Mark Fuqua - all of whom swept their matches - team Irish broke a four-year losing streak, defeating the Scotch Team 40-10 in the annual Scotch/Irish Match Play Championship. The victory was a first for Irish Captain Ken Ottmar, who was able to avoid falling down a hill this year despite only contributing one point for his team. Each member of the Irish team won $36.50. Congrats!
Mark Shaffer, on the heels of powering team Irish to victory last week, is now the top man in the inaugural Player of the Year Award. Shaffer (396.86) leapfrogged Brian Twohig (377.91) with Wes Smith (365.16) remaining in third. Rounding out the top five is Mark Gordon (358.00) and Ken Ottmar (356.19). The award is a season-long competition, and with just 180 points separating first from 20th, it is still anyone's to win.
