The Shark Shootout Summer Series continued its success this past weekend at The Colony Golf & Country Club in Bonita Springs. After a strong turnout at the inaugural event, the second tournament saw over 50 teams participate, marking the first sell-out of the series! Modeled after the Shootout, participants competed in two-person teams and played three different formats --- 6 holes of Modified-Alternate Shot, 6 holes of Better Ball and 6 holes of Scramble.
Continuing their stellar play in the series, the team of Scott Zedeker and Philip Reyburn fired a 67 to earn their second straight win in the gross division. In the net division, the team of Jim & Michael Marcelak recorded an impressive score of 63 to claim victory for the first time.
For their efforts, both teams were awarded complimentary passes to The Franklin Templeton Shootout’s Collier Club, an upgraded hospitality suite located between the 8th & 17th holes, along with gift certificates from the Summer Series’ newest sponsor – The Capital Grille. In total, Capital Grille awarded more than $850 in gift certificates to the top three teams in each division.
With three events to go the overall points race is heating up. Zedeker & Reburn have a commanding lead in the gross division after their second victory in as many weeks while the net division is wide open with different winners in each of the first two weeks. The chase is on to capture the Grand Prize of the Ultimate Franklin Templeton Shootout package. This exclusive package includes an “Inside The Ropes Experience” at the 2011 Franklin Templeton Shootout, invitations to The Franklin Templeton Shootout Pairings Party and weekend memberships to the Greg Norman Estates Shark Club.
