Division B:  Team Schumacher (moved into #2 Seed) finally past Team Flynn (dropped to #5 Seed) by 4 points.  Team Vaughn lost more ground and is now 99 points out of the lead and 95 points out of wild card and needs a big miracle.  Team Patmann still brings in 2nd from the top of the upside down list.  

 

Division C:  Team Kientz (moved into #3 Seed), with Team Anderson moving into 2nd place (10 points out of lead) while Team Buescher dropped to 3rd place and out of seeding (14 points out of lead).  Team Freeman bringing in 4th fell to 160 points from 1st place. 

 

Division D:  Team Kiffmeyer (#4 Seed) is barely holding the lead and lost more ground again as Team Harms moved within 10 points.  Team Leirey lost more ground and is now 51 points out.  Team Pfeiffer has their team number locked in for next year (#16).

 

Only 3 weeks left, and changes have already happened with more changes to come.  Who will make the play-offs?

 

The league secretary for another week will be taking predictions on who the six seeded teams will be for the playoffs.  Submit your predictions by August 7.  Get all six teams correct and win two strings of experienced golf balls.  Get all six teams and seeded positions correct for 1 dozen experienced golf  balls.
