John Houghtaling and Lyle Walker of the Zephyr Shuffle Club, drew each other as Partners for the Central District Championship held at the Zephyrhills, Betmar Club, on February 23rd and they won the Championship.
They lost one game in the tournament and that was in the semi-finals where they also trailed by 35 points in the deciding 3rd game but made a big come back to reach the finals where waiting were Jerry Collins, Zephyr Club, and Earl Ball, Betmar Club. The 1st game was anyone’s to win but John and Lyle won and finished things off winning the 2nd game too allowing Lyle to tie Jerry Collins for the final “Masters” spot with one tournament left in the season. That’s right Shufflers; the end of season District Championships are coming up SOON! Below are the current standings as of 2017 02 25. Should be a great DISTRICT MASTERS.
