Rustys 65s finished 9th overall at the Open Championship in Salt Lake City. They were eliminated by Brazil, but overall they left the tournament feeling good about about their performance. Tom Swanson gives us his recap.
Rustys, seeded 3rd, started out the tournament defeating Grog (25-22, 20-25, 15-7). At the time we didn't know the magnitude of that win. Grog, seeded 7th, went on to win our pool and finish second in the tournament. We finished that day losing to Papakoa (25-18, 25-14).Day two can be described as "close but no cigar". We easily beat Spike Force (25-20, 25-11) before losing to 2nd seeded Brazil (26-24, 25-22). Just a couple of points more and we would have been second in our pool (with an automatic seed into the Gold Division). As it was, we finished in a tie with Brazil for 3rd, but got the 4th seeding spot due to our loss to them. To show how close our pool was, the number 7th and 6th seeds overall were now the top two seeds our of our pool.
