Team Cox picks up in 2020 Rd. 2, while Stewart drops 1st spot & falls behind

Washington DC’s Pro-Duffers 2nd round 2-Man Team results show some big shifts in movement. Is Team Stewart losing nerve?

47 Pro Duffers in sunshine yellow, stormed the fairways at Enterprise Golf Course on Friday August 21st in Bowie, MD, to continue the second round of play in the championship 2 Man Team competition. With a high of 82°, and precarious course conditions, it was a fairly uncomfortable end of summer slog across 18 holes in Prince George’s County. This outing completed the second leg of this season’s race to the finish line, a crowned champion, and bragging rights until the next season begins. When we last left, Team Stewart, last year’s champion, made a statement that hinted at the chances of beginning a dynasty.

But that dynasty thought is now in imminent jeopardy. Team Cox shined with extraordinary performances from team partnerships like Powell/Sanders, who shot the lowest score of the day (62), as well as Blackwell/Hill & Malachi/McGlockton only finishing one stroke behind. The leaderboard paints a much more disparate picture than the one we saw last – Team Cox is in the lead at 9 points overall. And while Team Stewart is only one point back, they finished Round 2 in third place behind Team Boone, with the second lowest score on the day. Is that really representative of championship play?

After a request for comment detailing his thoughts about this shift in the leaderboard, Mr. Courtland Cox, team captain, told us:

“The two man team play is one that enhances the value of being a ProDuffer member. It allows for golf partnerships that would not ordinarily occur and the members of the various teams to experience a unique relationship. I am proud of my team’s accomplishment on Friday. There’s still a ways to go, but we will be doing all we can to bring home another championship.”

 With only one round of play left in the Pro-Duffers 2-Man Team Championship division, it’s still a tight race. But if the results in Round 2 are any indication of the future, Stewart might be on the edge of a cold front while Cox is just warming up. Stay tuned!

We fielded over 40 golfers on a great weather day for the round 2 of the 2-man competition, at Enterprise Golf course.  Despite a few challenges due to the course’s condition, we were able to complete the event.

 

Round 2 of our 2020 Medal Play Competition at Laytonsville Golf Course on Saturday, Aug 15 & 16th.  50 golfers on the greens

The MBI crew went out to Poolesville Golf Course to get a look at the course for Friday’s 2-Man Team competition. Mr. MBI (MEL) scored a Hole-In-One on the par 3, 168 yard, third hole. Money winners, Saunders, Clyde and Mel.

 

Team Stewart takes lead in 2020 season openers

Washington DC’s Pro-Duffers first outing in the 2-Man Team results are in & the championship race is finally underway:

60 golfers.

1 round – (Two Rounds to Go)

1 Championship title up for grabs.

In Silver Spring, MD at Northwest Park Golf Course on June 27 & July 3rd a new, socially distant, era of competitive golf began. Amidst a looming, ever present worldwide uncertainty, 5 dozen Pro-Duffers played 18 holes in the heart of Montgomery County signifying the starting gun to a freshly minted tournament season in the life of the organization after quarantine respite.

The early season leaderboard is set and the team that currently sits at the top is no stranger to the throne. 2019’s crowned champions Team Stewart made a strong showing of prowess, reinforcing their reputation as a dominant force on the fairway, with a collective score of 179, earning them 5 points. The closest encroaching threat to their continued dominion is Team Cox, who are already on track to a repeat 2nd place performance.

After a request for comment from the team captain himself about this promising start to the season, Mr. Marvin Stewart told us:

“14 out-of 17 team members came to play, and it’s the reason we are in first place. My team is ready and willing to take on all challengers in the 2- Man competition this year.”

Only time will tell if we’re witnessing the dawn of a dynasty in the Pro-Duffers 2-Man Team Championship division, but if the results in Round 1 become a regular occurrence, smart money says it’s a possibility that could easily become reality.

And they are off the tee box in search of the triple crown of DC Duffers—two low qualifying rounds and one extra low round to win the RED JACKET. Many have broken from the gate very fast and have to be considered a legitimate threat to win it all.

“MANY ARE CALLED BUT FEW ARE CHOSEN!” according to head oddsmaker Mel Blackwell who has set the early odds below to win it all. He cautions there has only been one Secretariat who has gone wire to wire in all three races.

FAVORITES OUT OF THE GATE

Lance and Kwame Bailey       8-1  Both have had strong showings at MD National And Hampshire Greens But can they do it twice more when the heat is on?

Robert Day                             8-1  Can he go two more low rounds with a target On his back ?

Bill Hall                                   7-1 A strong favorite but already has one jacket will Lightning strike twice? Swami not convinced.

Larry Banks                            9-1  Enjoys a favorable handicap but can a hi Handicapper put together 3 low rounds????

Steve Hill                                 6-1 Cagy veteran with a consistent game a Dangerous opponent Beware!!

Robert Hood                           9-1 Another hi handicapper whose consistency will Be tested in the forest!

Frank Sanders                        4-1 Very dangerous has played another sport at The highest level so pressure is not a factor!

Richard Johns                        7-1 Long off the tee if the short game is there Could be a second jacket.

Clyde Rowe                             5-1 Plays YEAR-ROUND so is never rusty. Has the Curse of a previous win but he may beat the odds.

Bill Lewis                                8-1 Is in the sweet spot for handicap a blessing And a curse can he hold up to the pressure?

The great predictor just does not know who, yet!!!  The crystal ball sees a BIG North wind coming that will blow a couple of contenders out of the race. Oh, and a certain someone has just come off the INJURED RESERVE list and is chomping at the bit to go low!! There is a lot of meat still on that porkchop so grab some cornbread and get to practicing because somebody in this group is gonna emerge!!
