With Friday being the finale of our Glow Winter I thought I'd do run down of where everyone stands.
I'll start with the Open division:
Currently on 2 have qualified, Ryan Griffin at 234 and Zach Lorenz at 241.
Ronnie Huffman only needs to play Friday to qualify. As it stands if he shoots 51 or better he will win.
However if Ryan shoots his league best 49 he could drop 5 more stokes to 229 making Ronnie have to shoot 46. If Zach can shoot his best 49 also he can drop 13 strokes to 228 making Ronnie target score 45.
So barring Ryan or Zach beating their personal course records, Ronnie can clinch with 45.
Jayson Prutzman can also qualify Friday. To have a chance to win he would need to shoot better than a 44. Anything below a 49 could put him within the top 3.
Now onto the Am division:
We have 6 qualified going into Friday.
Chris Norris 233, Jake Dunson 235, Phillip Sissoupanh 236, BJ Reel 240, Jacob Wade 241, Mike Avillion 248
There could be a lot of movement for the finale. If Chris shoots his league best 49 or better he would clinch the win out of those already qualified.
Any of the others could move into trophy range with a solid round. Mike and Jacob both could steal the win with a scores in the low 50's. They would likely need some help from the others but the chance is there.
The sleeper pick and main threat to them all is Moon Dog. With his last two handicapped rounds coming in at 42 and 37, he has positioned himself nicely for the win. If Moon plays and shoots a 69 or better and Chris doesn't shoot better than par Moon will win. So every shot below par Chris can shoot he will force Moon to shoot that much better. If Moon shoots his best again he will force Chris to shoot better than he has all league to win.
Also for the battle of most improved currently Jake Dunson leads. Both Bain and Moon are right on him and could steal it away in the finale.
It going to be an interesting night to say the least. Ace Pool is projected to be near $100. If no one hits we will have a throw off for half with the rest going toward the next leagues pool.
