Congratulations to Jerry Thompson for taking home the win. Jerry was fast coming out of the gate putting an 8 stroke lead on the field after day one with a net 66 score. Carlos Cantu, Ramiro Longoria, and Mario “The Comish” Perez each shot net 74 scores on day one giving them the best chance to snatch the lead from Mr. Thompson. Carlos Cantu was the most consistent player on day 2; having 8 pars and 10 bogies for a net 69 score. Two other players shot net scores at par or under. Raul Medellin had a net 72 and Ron “Tiger” Tatsch had a net 71 score. On day 2 all in all the field shot better scores, but it wasn’t quite enough to take the lead from Jerry Thompson. Jerry had a day 2 net score of 74 for a two day total of 140 to take the Major by 3 strokes. Congratulation my friend!! Well done!! Rounding out the top 3 spots, Carlos Cantu came in second with a net two day total of 143. We had a 3 way tie for 3rd place with a two day net scores of 147, by Ramiro Longoria, The Comish, and Raul Medellin. Great shooting guys!!
Ram took a big chunk out of the margin between his total for the year and our current 2020 Traveler Cup leader John Pittman. Ram is now only $233,333 off the lead. Mr. Pittman dodged a bullet from Ram, with help for the Comish and Raul by finishing with a three way tie for 3rd place. If they didn’t tie and Ram ended up in 3rd place alone, he would have been only $160,000 off the lead. Only one other player has a “mathematical chance” of matching Mr. Pittman or Mr. Longoria, and that is Carlos Cantu. Carlos is currently $900,000 back, with only 3 tournaments remaining; that means that he would have to finish with the hat trick (winning all 3 tournaments) and Mr. Pittman not show up for them at all… it could happen. Someone could text Mr. Pittman telling him that each tournament has been canceled due to rain. (Hint, Hint Ram)
