2017 U.S. Open Championship - Marshal Opportunity

Hello Presidents of the MCPLA Clubs:

I am contacting you as you presently sit as the President of your respective golf clubs.  As the President of the Brown Deer Men's club, I have been contacted by the USGA to coordinate an effort to recruit 65 members to volunteer for the 2017 U.S. Open Championship at Erin Hills.  This exciting tournament will be played from June 12-18, 2017.

I am positive that many of your club members will jump at the opportunity to marshal during this fun event and for that reason I am attaching a Marshal Volunteer Application for their use.  The application is self explanatory but I know members will have some questions.  Three of those might be:  Why apply so early,  do I have to pay now, and can woman apply. The answer to number one is that the USGA needs 4500 volunteers to make the Open a success.  In order to get that many, the effort to recruit must start now.  Second answer, no, do not send in your money until you are invoiced by the USGA, and lastly, by all means, ladies are welcome to apply to marshal.  The 175.00 will be collected later and then you will receive two shirts, a jacket, head gear, and lunch voucher for the day you marshal.  Along with all that, you will be given a credential good for all seven days.  Even if you are not scheduled to work, you can walk the course at your leisure.

I am asking that you send out an email to your club now along with a copy of the application to get the ball rolling, no pun intended.  The applications should be sent to Bob Cohn, 2340 W Dickinson Ct., Mequon, Wi 53092.  If you or any member should have a question, have them contact me either by email at: cookiecohn@gmail.com or call me at 262 512 2020.  If I don't know the answer I assure you I will get one for your member.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation in getting this out as soon as possible.

On behalf of your MCPLA board, I hope everyone has a GREAT HOLIDAY SEASON!!!!!!

Bob Cohn
VP MCPLA

2015 Season Ending Event - 1 Man Scramble: Pairings, Payouts, Etc...

Currie Men,
I’m sending this out to the entire club membership in case anyone who’s not golfing would like to join us after the event in the club house for the end of season business such as collecting your gift cards (if that’s how you decided to receive payment), voting on 2016 officers, awarding of ‘Player of the Year’, etc…

The golf starts at 8am and is s shotgun start so I’d like to think we’d be off the course and in the club house by the noon hour.

Here’s some facts about the golf portion of this day: Season Ending Event: 1-Man Scramble
  • SHOTGUN START: This event will begin at 8:00am from a variety of tee boxes. Please note your starting position, which is found in the ‘Hole’ column of the image below.
  • Format: One-Man Scramble - Each player gets two extra shots per hole but must pick up at bogie. Can only use one extra shot per shot (example; cannot take three shots at birdie putt if on par 4 green in regulation without using any extra shots). If extra shot is taken then you can chose the better of the two shots to hit your next ball from (aka SCRAMBLE)
  • Recommended strategy: Hit tee-ball in fairway! If you miss the fairway and it is in the trees, walk to your ball and hit a second shot (save your scramble shots) - get the second shot close to the green or back into play! Use your first scramble shot (one of the two extra shots) to hit your second or third shot close to the pin, Use your second scramble shot (two of the two extra shots) on taking two putts at making par or birdie, Key is to attempt to hit fairway on your tee shot or at least give yourself a shot at hitting it near the green.
  • Flights: There will be three flights (Championship, A and B) defined in the following manner.
    • Championship Flight (3.8 index to 8.4): 13 Players
    • A Flight (8.7 index to 11.7): 13 Players
    • B Flight (12.3 index to 23.9): 14 Players
  • Payouts: We'll pay the top three spots in each flight; $35, $25 and $20. This will be paid out immediately following the event.
  • Score Cards: Score cards will be provided, please hand the cards in to Scott Walecki or Jeff Camosy after completing your round. This is a flighted GROSS event so you don't have to worry about any handicaps, just card your gross score.
  • Skins: No skins game will be offered since it does not make sense in this format.

Mascoutin Event (9/26): At Risk of CANCELLATION due to LOW REGISTRANTS!

Currie Men,
If you intend to register for the 9/26 event at Mascoutin we’d like to see you register without delay since we only have 6 people registered at the moment. It’s a nice course up near Oshkosh and if we don’t get around 16 players we’ll likely make a decision to abandon the event. So SIGN UP!

Also, we currently have 14 golfers signed up for the 9/27 event at Mee-Kwon . We have eight tee times and they were gracious to squeeze us in after we abandoned Whispering Springs due to their aeration schedule so we’d like to see a decent number there as well.

SIGN UP!!!!!!!
