The most dramatic skin and all and nearly all of the clubhouse talk, was had by tour veteran, Jack Black, who aced the par 3, 2nd hole from approximatley 140 yards. It was his 2nd on our tour and his 7th overall. Nice job, Jack. Jack also walked off with low net honors and a fine 33 point, 3 over par round.

Summer finally returned to the Michigan/Ontario region with temperatures in the upper 80s and high humidity.

They each managed to win a skin too…#15 for Grant and #6 for Brett.
