WORCESTER & LINDER WIN AMATEUR CHAMPIONSHIP
Steve Worchester, ZSC, and Ray Linder, Betmar, won the Central District Amateur Championship on November 11th at the Zephyrhills Shuffleboard Club sponsored by Sunrise Eatery.
They just escaped the 2nd round when Steve put three blocks behind a hid on the opponents hammer, not an easy feat. The semi-finals went three tough games but the finals was the real story; down a game and about to lose in two straight Ray faced having to make a 10 with his last shot to tie and the opponent covered the 10 for the most part. Ray had to play a shot that would drift on to the 10 and the speed had to be perfect. It was, sending the game into overtime and he and Steve won leading to game three which was tight until the last couple of frames when they were able to separate and win the Championship.
There were 29 teams of amateurs and along with the 23 teams of Pro’s from a day earlier giving the tournament a total of 104 players. That’s a big tournament. Go here for complete Results: http://www.fsa-centraldistrict.org/Tournaments/CD05_Results.txt
