AP – January 27, 2013 MGI Vegas golf outing.
The MGI Vegas golf outing has turned into an annual tradition, as a warm up for the Miami Golf Invitational. A few of the alumni of the MGI meet up around this time every year to discuss the upcoming event, and to play a round of golf.
On the tee this year were MGI veterans Allen Grant, Todd Keiper, and Craig Goleno. The fourth member joining was MGI 2013 rookie Jeremy Bellflower.
It was nice to finally get the golf channel to come out and help with the official scoring and the television coverage.
On the range before the round, it was discussed what was at stake for the round. As you can see from this video provided by Gol films and Golf Channel, it was for the other players driver!
The round got started and Allen Grant was hot! He birdied 2 of the first 3 holes and never blinked the rest of the way. He finished with 4 birdies, and finished with a 74.
He beat TK 6&5, and had TK saying to Gol, “I am making the turn shooting 39 and I am 5 down?”
He also handled the rookie as well with a 5&4 thrashing!
“I had to teach the kid a lesson about match play, for years I’ve been in Tk’s head. After all, I’ve been there so much I’ve got a timeshare. That timeshare cost me a few bucks back when the market was up, and it took me a few years to get it, but I got it! Sunday I bought a new timeshare outright in Jeremy Bellflower’s head, and with real estate prices in the toilet it didn’t cost me much. In fact after I dropped a bomb on him on 2, and followed it up with another birdie on 3. I had my timeshare!”
The only person in the group that the rookie didn’t pay money too was Goleno, but he also didn’t collect any either.
Goleno added, “I hit some good shots, and I got my first birdie of 2013 already in the books with a 20 foot putt on the 155 yard par 3 8th hole. It is always good to get that first birdie out of the way, and I am looking forward to some revenge on number 5 at the Senator!”
Oh we almost forgot, who won the driver? Todd shot a net 71, and Jeremy had a net 80.
