Club Event at Currie Park Golf Course - Results

Currie Men's Club,

Today marked the return of the one-man scramble format as our season ending event. It seemed like everybody had fun and enjoyed the competition. I think part of the challenge of this format is to know your game well enough to decide how to best utilize your extra shots. There were some fine scores turned in highlighted by Dave Ullenberg (68- Championship Flight), Mark Cuthbert (68- A Flight) and Jesse Alba (69- B Flight). We payed out cash for the top 3 spots in each flight detailed below.

Thanks to everybody for participating and thanks to Scott Walecki and Ben Ciha for all their help running the event. We appreciate it. As an aside, I know a lot of you like to go out for breakfast prior to our club events. I think it would be an appropriate suggestion to include a "One-Man Scramble" on the breakfast menu as a hearty start to your round of golf...just a thought.

Club Event at West Bend Lakes Golf Club - Results

West Bend Participants,

Based on what I saw as I was entering today's scores, with a few exceptions, the back nine played quite a bit tougher than the front nine. I definitely think the back nine is tougher from tee to green and I personally found the greens difficult all the way around. Congratulations to team S.Brandt/Brock/Alba for their 1st place finish of 19 under par. Notable gross honor scores were turned in by Lee Gardner 72, Scott Brandt 74, Chuck Silkey and Bob Cristan 78 and Jeff Brandt 79. All contest payouts and skins results are detailed below. Thanks to all who participated. I hope everybody had fun. Thanks to Steve Jaeger for helping out with the scoring and skins payouts. As a reminder, be sure to sign up for our final event and club meeting which is on September 26th.

MCPLA 60th Annual Arnold Walker County Championship - Results

Absolutely incredible weather!!! Course conditions were great and Andy challenged the players with some tough pin positions. I want to thank PGA Professional Andy Barrett, Course Superintendent Tim Wegner and both of their staff for the outstanding conditions and organization that makes this tournament a true pleasure to run. Thanks also go out to starter Glen Jaeger and marshall Bob Gerszewski. These guys help make a big job manageable.

Congratulations go out to the 2020 Milwaukee County Champion Davis Murphy. He is a newcomer to MCPLA Competition and Saturday was his first time playing Brown Deer! I’m guessing it won't be his last. Congratulations also go out to A Flight winner Dave Ullenberg, B Flight winner Brian Pederson and C Flight winner Joe Maiorelle. Trophies were awarded to each of the above winners. All of the below listed winners will have their winnings either placed on account under your name on the computer or mailed to you.

I want to take this time to thank everyone who played in any of the MCPLA events this year. Participation was up from last year despite all of the craziness in our world.

Second Team at Brown Deer Park Golf Course - Results

Gentlemen –

The Currie Second Team took care of business today out at Brown Deer, not quite winning the event, but increasing our season point lead, thus winning the title for the 3rd year in a row and 10th in the last 12 years. The weather was great, and Brown Deer was in excellent shape. The home team won the event with 140 points, we took 2nd with 130, and Oakwood took 3rd with 122. For the year we took 643 points, and Oakwood was a distant second with 585. Grant finished in third place with 564. In addition to today’s second place finish, we took 2 firsts, a tie for first, and a 6th place in the 5 events.

Top point winners today were Director Brian Pederson with 17 out of 18, Gary Zwirlein with 15, and Jeff, “I shot 42 on the front”, Camosy with 14. (Don’t ask what he shot on the back). Our medalists were Dave Ullenberg with 82, Gerry McGrath with 84, and Pederson with 85. Three Currie men took awards, Bill Zolandz with longest putt on number 2, Rich Saks with a skin on number 2 and Darrell Frenzel with a skin on 6.

Darrell Frenzel was our season point leader with 64, two ahead of Rich Saks. Pederson and Steve Amble took 59 and 58 respectively. Nineteen members participated on the season, with an average points per match per man of 10.9. Thanks to all of you.

The usual summaries are listed below. Don’t forget to post your own scores. They will not be posted for you.

Once again, it was my pleasure to captain a great bunch of guys.

Thanks,

Jack
