Kwan’s Birdie team played at home against Caddy Shack. Caddy Shack is leading the PPL but has played one game more than Kwan’s Birdie, so this promised to be a very exciting match.
Only Ricky playing for Birdie was able to win his single and double games, but all other points were shared. The beer leg was a three-setter and won by Kwan’s Birdie, who also won the evening with a score of 7-5.
The PPL has still four weeks to go and Caddy Shack are still leading the league, but Kwan’s Birdie has one game more to play. Both teams cannot afford a misstep the coming weeks.
