5th Annual 2 Fine 9s recap

On September 13th, in the steam box which was Royal American Links, the finest 2 Fine 9s to date went down.

Congrats to the team of Where's The Beer Cart (Ricky Bobby, Chris Butcher, Jared Desanto, Scott Albright) for shooting a winning 58 in the heat. They won in a tiebreaker over The Chickenhawks (Glenn Dolfi, Jeremy Swanson, Trent Thompson, Matt Thomalson) who finished second and The Dudes Abides (Chad Guess, Tim Bahan, Robert Bacon, John Niehaus). It was Where's The Beer Cart's third straight 2 Fine 9s title.
