Another page turned in the Grant Weaver story. I had the priveledge of riding with the guy to and fro the Big Nut. I'd never seen such a look of confidence, anticipation, and determination on a guy as I got into the car just as the sun had begun to rise on Saturday morning. Any doubts that I had before Saturday on this man taking down the BigNut were immediately extinguished when I saw GW in the morning. As anticipated his round at Walnut was not the best round, nor the worst. Setting himself up for a well anticipated comback at the Crack. To everyone's surprise the Bushwhacker sleeper Mr. Claring himself was in first after round 1. Fausch shot over 60 at Walnut for the first time in 3 years! Things were definately askew in the advanced division. Maybe that is what lead to what was about to happen next at the infamous Crack.
Conditions were favorable. Sun was shining and upper 50's for mid October
Slight breeze with some gusts. Conditions were better than average. Especially for mid-october. From what I hear, GW's thumber was below average. Something I havent' heard since he started throwing it. Needless to say, things did not shape up according to plan. Congrats to Claring and Fausch representing the BW's with the 1 and 2 positions. Does this change my opinion of Grant's performance at Big Creek. Far from it. I'll bet anyone that if Grant were to go out there today he'd shoot sub 60 with ease. Tough break Grant. We look for a solid turn around this weekend in Vichy
