In the 2014 season’s penultimate round, big Bill “Mr. FourSkin” Cockey put together a round worthy of winning the season’s first “Chee’burger Dinner” at Baltimore’s famous Crackpot Restaurant. Needing to post a net 31 score, Bill did one stroke better than that and shot a 38, net 30.
Hititng fairways and greens like he knew what he was doing, Bill also finally sank a meaningful putt and joined the 2014 Birdie Club. Can you imagine playing to a 7 handicap (his reward for playing so well was to lose another stroke on his handicap) and not making a birdie until your 25th round of the season? However, it is also true that he does lead the BGA by a wide margin in making pars and added another 6 to go along with his lone bird. All kidding aside, your Scribe has to extend congratulations on such a well played round.
Now the bets are being made as to how high his final round of the year will be. Right now the over/under is 46 as consistency is not a hallmark of the BGA.
His playing partner, Bill “The Snowman” Levering posted a sweet 59 (net 40) for the round but it was good enough for Team Bill to beat Team Swansonhead as Rodger “Mr. Fifteen” Swanson‘s 48 (net 38) and Ron “Commish” Swanson‘s 50 (net 41) was bad enough to buy the beer to go along with the chee’burger and Old Bay fries.
