CLIBORNE WINS HUMP LEAGUE 2012
WEEK NINE - Rex McClintock overwhelmed the field with a net 31 on the front nine. David Senn finished second with a net 32 with Miguel Bautista finished third. The money was distributed using a “Pink ball” team format. First place went to the team of Miguel Bautista, Derek Bean and Wayne Sivage. Second went to Alan Payne, Jim Cliborne and Joe Torres. Only one team lost the pink ball and the guilty party, Sidd Dodd, was rewarded with a gift of all the other teams’ pink balls.
WEEK TEN- In Week 10 Jim Cliborne and Carl Duran played in the same group and both shot 41- net 34 to share first place and cement spots in the playoffs. Miguel Bautista played his seventh round in the
series and jumped into first place with an average of 282.9 - four better than second place Alan Payne. Dick Bahr finished third followed by Cliborne, Leroy Baca, Duran, Joe Torres, David Senn and the Williams brothers - Scott in ninth and Bruce in tenth.
SEMIFINALS - The semifinals, featuring nine golfers vying for 4 spots to join Miguel in the finals, was contested over several days as a major thunderstorm drove the groups off the course on Wednesday with one group having one hole remaining and the other threesomes with four and three respectively. When all groups finally finished, Carl Duran (net 31), Jim Cliborne (net 32), Bruce Williams (net 33) and Alan Payne (net 34) moved on to the finals.
FINALS - The Hump League 2012 Finals were played out on the blended nine (holes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 15, 16, 17and 18) of SdR on Wednesday August 29 with all five players competing over the first 6 holes with the highest net score being emliminated after # 15 and thereafter one player with the highest score on a hole also being eliminated until the final remaining two players played #18 for the Championship.
After the 15th Carl Duran and Miguel Bautista were tied for high score and Carl was eliminated in the chip off. On the 16th Miguel and Bruce Williams tied with bogeys and Bruce advanced through the chip off. On 17 Bruce hit his tee shot into trouble and finished with net triple bogey to finish in third place. Jim and Alan (aka Croc) played the 18th for the championship with Jim getting a stroke on the hole. Both had good drives, but Croc hit his second from the left rough into the arroyo right of the green. Jim dumped his second into the left greenside bunker, then watched as Croc - from a miserable lie managed to hit to the fringe of the green and sunk a putt of about 40 feet for par! After extricating himself from the bunker, in order to force a playoff, Jim got down in two from the left fringe. Jim won the chip off and the championship with a flop shot from behind the left bunkers after Croc failed to hit the green.
After the championship match, MGA President Tommy Tharp noted the sportsmanship, camaraderie and genuine support for each other displayed during the entire 12 week season. New acquaintances, if not fast friends, were made and single digit handicappers coached high handicappers who might very well eliminate them. “That makes this special to me.” he said.
