Few people enjoy watching golf pros compete in Skins Game events on television more than Bobby Mahle, who represents tank manufacturer Tanques Industriales Lajat of Mexico from his home near Austin, Texas.
Some shots and putts in the pressure cooker matches, when $150,000 or more is up for grabs, have boggled his mind. An avid golfer with a 16 handicap, he often wondered what it would be like to stand over a seven-foot putt with a chance to win a big wad of money.
Mahle has played in a few of the fun-filled knockdown and dragouts on occasions. Yet, though a shaky putter kept him from winning many skins, he enjoyed every stressful moment.
So, when the opportunity arose for the Lajat USA arm of Tanques Industriales Lajat to sponsor two nine-hole Skins Game events during the Propane Golfers Association's medal and handicap event next month, he was all for it.So was company vice president Tomas Bello, new Lajat USA vp-sales Jim McPherson and West Coast sales manager Roger Saldana.
Participating in the Skins Games field will be eight propane marketers who will be selected based upon their net scores.
