Walker Cup gets soggy

The 10th annual Walker Cup teed off at Kenai Golf Course on Thursday evening, and the relentless rain only furthered the notion that golfers will play under any conditions.

 

“Other than wet and rainy, wet and windy, it was fine,” said Kenai team captain Tommy Carver. “It’s chilly out. I’ve never called it off because it’s miserable, though.

“It’s always windy in Kenai, so the hands are cold and the grips are wet.”

Kenai Golf Course ended the day leading 3 1-2 to 2 1-2 over Soldotna’s Birch Ridge Golf Course team, with an alternate-shot format.

The six pairs of teams finished as such: Kenai’s Gordon Griffin and Todd Eskelin won 2 and 1 playing against Zack and Nick Beeson; Chris Murray and Derek Kaufman beat Mike Hollingsworth and George Stein 2-up; Birch Ridge’s Kevin Downs and Jesse Scott beat Doug Jung and Gilbert Arellano 1-up; Kenai’s Bob Sizemore and Greg Harrington finished tied against Paul Zimmerman and C.J. Henley; Birch Ridge’s Pedro McCall and Tyler Yamada topped Rene Alvarez and Chris Morin 2 and 1; and Kenai’s John Dahlgren and Aaron Cooper beat Jeff Hetrick and Gene Minden 5 and 3.

Play continues today at 5 p.m. with a best-ball format.
