congratulations to our tourney winner — MudPuppy.
Well done in one of the most challenging 1 vs. 1 tourneys I have ever put together...you had to perform on so many different maps!!!
After rolling through some early wins that barely required him to set foot on the back-nine, MudPuppy faced a strong challenge from shoop76 in the third round. MudPuppy rallied to win the final three holes to take the match 1UP.
His closest battle came in the semifinals where he went to a tiebreaker to beat Don 1 based on taking halved holes on South America and CCU. Still, MudPuppy needed wins on 5 of the last 7 holes to pull even and put the tiebreaker in effect.
MudPuppy got off to a fast start in the finals, winning five straight holes during one stretch to take a 3UP lead into the turn. WPRBJ had his back to the wall, but was staying alive with wins on the 14th, 15th and 16th holes before MudPuppy closed out the match with an 8-round win on the French map.
Thanks to everyone who played...this was a smooth tourney and deadbeats weren't a problem. I'll probably throw something similar together next spring/summer. My next tourney is 2009-10 College Hoops...look for that on the tourney thread in the next couple weeks
