Second Team at Brown Deer - Results

Gentlemen –

We opened our Second Team season at Brown Deer yesterday with a bit of a thud, finishing 4th, a full 54 points behind event winner, Whitnall.  The course was soggy, but otherwise in fine condition and the greens were excellent.  Playing the blue tees at 6300 yards and no roll was challenging, especially for us short hitting mortals.  Mike O’Neill was not one of those, as he somehow carded a one under par 70 on the day.  Nice going Mike!

The team took 196 points, led by Gary Zwirlein with 23.  Director Brian Pederson took 22, Steve Jaeger 21, and O’Neil 19. 

Team members won several individual prizes.  In the low handicapper bracket O’Neil took a skin with birdie on 1, and Jaeger another with birdie on 14,  and in the high handicapper bracket Zwirlein took a skin on number 1 and Harry Markos got one on 15.  Harry had one of the biggest ABFUs on record, I believe, following up his birdie 4 on 15 with a juicy 12 on 16. 😊  According to Harry’s email to me, several water balls and shanks were involved.  Ah, golf, what a game.  We’ve all been there Harry. 

In flag events Jeff Kapp took closest to the pin on 5, Jaeger took longest putt on 2, and Doug Bowring took longest drive on 10, the latter benefiting by the fact that the flag wasn’t set out until most of the field had already gone through.

A couple more things.  Two guys were DQ’d because they wore jeans yesterday.  Let that be a reminder to all of us that there is a dress code for these events that basically says no jeans, no cutoffs, no tank tops, and shirts must have collars.  Don’t ever violate the dress code please.

Brown Deer charged us $46 yesterday, (the extra $1 was for the skins game) but it should have been $40, so they gave us $6 gift cards to make up the difference.  I have them and will try to get them to all the players the next time I see them, but my pea brain is old and forgetful, so if you played yesterday and did not get your gift card yet, remind me when you see me.

Our next match is at Whitnall on Sunday, June 10.  I’ll be recruiting a team shortly, but if you think you can do well there and want to play, let me know.

See ya,

Jack

10/7 - Season Ending Club Event at Currie - Format, Pairings, Payouts, etc..

Click here to see all the detail you need for the upcoming ONE MAN SCRAMBLE at Currie.

Please know this is our season ending event and after the round we'll take care of club business, such as; distribute winnings, hand out some awards, vote on next year's club officers, etc...

Please know this is a an unusual format so please make sure you know what flight you are in (Champ and A play from the Blues and B flight plays from the Whites), what hole you are starting on (this is a Shotgun start) and HOW THE FORMAT WORKS....Read below for format description and recommended strategy.

Format: One-Man Scramble - Each player gets two extra shots per hole but must pick up at boggie. 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.

First Team at Currie Results

1st Team All-Stars:

Thanks to all of you who participated throughout the season.  I appreciate the spirited effort and particularly the great showing defending our home court. For the match, we finished in 3rd place, 6 points behind  2nd place Whitnall.  I originally thought we finished second, but, in reviewing the scoring matrix I noticed some problems with the totaling and did my own calculation, manually.  The Currie match and the season was won by Greenfield with 653 points for the 5 matches.  This averages out to be 130 points per match or 13 points per man for the season.  Something for us to target for next year.  I revised the totals summary for the season and we finished in 4th place, only 27 points behind Oakwood.  Considering that we didn't always have our lowest handicap players available I think this is a pretty outstanding accomplishment for Team Currie.  Thanks to Dave Labinski and his staff for all the help with scoring and the challenging course setup.   

Match Highlights:

John Dobroski shot an outstanding 1 under par 70 and got 15 points.  Congrats, John, for that amazing round!  Not far behind was Dave Ullenberg with a 74 and 14 points, Steve Wolter with a 75 and 15 points, Ken Collins with a 77 and 13 points, and Dominic Carini with a 77 and 12 points.  

Other leaders in the points column were the ever reliable Rich Saks with an 82 and 12 points and yours truly with an 85 and 14 points.

Ken Collins got a skin on #6 with a birdie and Dave Ullenberg got a skin on #11 with a birdie.  

Thanks to everybody who played and grinded out every point you could get.  We represented ourselves well and we can take this competitive spirit into next season.
