Club Event at Ives Grove Golf Links - Results

All Currie National Competitors and Ives Grove Participants,

On my way to the course this morning I was fantasizing about the prospects for a hole in one. I did indeed get one, but unfortunately it was before I got to the course...a hole in one tire! Thanks to everybody for helping me get back on the road after the round. You guys are the best. Thank you Jeff Camosy and Bill Zolandz for taking over the scoring duties. I appreciate that.

First place honors go to the duo of Bernie Mattheis and Brad Romanowski at -15, $50ea. Great performance guys. Nice to see new names at the top. In second place at -12 were Jeff Camosy and Bryan Olen, $30ea. Tied for third at -9 were teams Brandt/Collins, Jaeger/Zolandz, and Baker/Gardner, $15ea. Low gross scores were posted by Lee Gardner 71, Ken Collins 74, Chris Glinski 75, and Steve Wolter 79.

$10 Skins were won by Ken Collins, getting 3 skins, Lee Gardner 2, and Steve Wolter, Brian Pederson, Chris Glinski, and myself all getting 1.

I hope everybody had fun. See you all at the Club Championship.

Club Event at Edgewood (Oaks) Golf Course - Results

Edgewood Combatants,

Pleasantly the $48 fee that I was quoted Friday afternoon was incorrect and we actually wound up paying only $37. The best was saved for last as the final foursome of the day won this Irish 4 Ball event. The winners were team Cristan/Hirsch/Schreindl/Schreindl at -17, each getting $30. In 2nd place was team Camosy/Collins/Jaeger/Pederson -12, $20Ea. and in 3rd place was team Condella/Fossett/Glinski/Wolter -10, $10ea. Very impressive playing to the winners.

Honorable mentions go out to Dave Ullenberg with a gross 74, Eric Schreindl 77 and Lee Gardner 78. Net scores of note were Jeff Camosy with a 67, Scott Brandt shooting a 68 and Tom Condella with a 69. On a roll with some recent exceptional play is Dick Baker with a net 70 including deuces on #'s 11 and 14 and a net score of 32 on the back 9. Way to go Richard!!

Skins of $17 ea. were won by Eric Schreindl #3, Brian Pederson #'s 7 and 16, Tom Condella #8, Jim Fossett #10, Lee Gardner #12, and Steve Jaeger #15.

Thanks to Gerry McGrath for helping out with the score-keeping after the round. Appreciate that.

Club Event at Currie Park Golf Course - Results

Currie Event Participants,

Well "The National" held its own today with some pretty tough pin placements and rough that was a little tricky to negotiate if you got off the fairway. It certainly was a great test as a warm up for our Club Championship coming up August 17th and 18th. The A Flight was won by Steve Jaeger with a net score of -3, 68 ($50). In 2nd place was Larry Dake at -2, 69 ($30) and in 3rd was Scott Brandt at -1, 70 ($20). The B Flight was won by John Hirsch with a net score of -5, 66 ($50). Gary Zwirlein was 2nd with a net -4, 67 ($30) and Steve Amble and Dick Baker tied for 3rd at -3, 68 ($10ea.) Gross honor scores were turned in by Larry Dake with a 77 and Steve Jaeger shooting 78. Nice playing to all the winners!

Skins of $46ea. were won by Jack Bruss #2, Steve Wolter #7 and Steve Jaeger #8...Say What??, 1 Birdie on #8!! Go figure.

Thanks to Head Pro, Scott Walecki and Assistant, Marcus Suelflow for handling all the scoring and administrative duties. Great job and very much appreciated.

Thanks to everybody who played today,

Club Event at Old Hickory Golf Club - Results

Currie Champion Golfers,

We certainly had a beautiful day to play golf today.  In spite of that, the scoring was a little higher than we're use to seeing.  Make no mistake, this is a difficult course that played long and put a premium on keeping it in the short grass.  In addition, the greens are challenging, even though I thought the pins were in very fair positions.  That being said, there were some very admirable performances turned in.  In the A Flight, Mark Cuthbert and Brian Pederson were medalist's both shooting gross 83, -2 net ($40ea.).  Steve Wolter and Rich Saks shared 3rd place at +5 ($10 ea.).  In the B Flight, Brian Olen and Matt Clark tied for 1st at Even Par ($40 ea.) and Steve Satula finished in solo 3rd at +1 ($20).  Nice playing to all the winners!

There were 7 Skins at $13 ea.  Steve Wolter with 2 skins on holes #9 and #18, Corey Mader #6, Brian Pederson #8, Bryan Dominick #12, Bryan Olen #16, and Mark Cuthbert #17.

Thanks again to Steve Wolter for helping out with the scoring and skins.  Much appreciated.  I hope everybody had fun.

Club Event at Fairways of Woodside - Results

Currie Grinders and Mudders,

It was a bit of a challenging day at, as I sometimes like to call it, The "Unfair Ways" of Woodside. We started off with a nice, hot, humid day that eventually turned into about a 2 hour rain delay for the last 5 groups. In spite of the delay there was some very impressive golf played. Lee Gardner and Rich Saks won the event at -12, $50ea. Steve Amble and Jessie Weathersby were 2nd at -10, $30ea. Bryan Olen/Jim Sauceda and Mark/Eric Schreindl all tied for 3rd at -9, $17.50ea. In 5th place was Corey Mader with a blind draw as his partner at -8, $10. Individual medalist was John Dobroski with a stellar round of 71, followed by Lee Gardner with a 74 and Rich Saks with an incredible 75, net 62. Also breaking 80 were Steve Wolter and Mark Schreindl shooting 78 and Corey Mader with a 79. Skins are listed below. Great playing to all!

As a side note, to complete the results, I entered hole scores of 9 for any holes that were not able to be completed. These are not the totals that got posted for handicap purposes. Mark Cuthbert went back and adjusted those holes to be net pars and then posted the resulting total scores. Thanks to John Dobroski and Steve Wolter for helping with the scoring and skins and to Mark Cuthbert for manually posting the scores. The next club event is at Old Hickory July 21st.

Skins $25ea.

Rich Saks #3
Gerry McGrath #8
Dan Webb #9
Steve Wolter #13
Steve Amble #17

Club Event at Scenic View - Results

Currie National Grinders,

Although somewhat blustery, we did escape the rain forecast and by current standards, we actually had a pretty nice day to play golf.  I had never played Scenic View and I must say I was pleasantly surprised with the conditions and the quality of the course.  It was a challenging, but fair layout, and a lot of fun to play.  This was a team event, however, I do need to highlight some very impressive individual scores.  Lee Gardner turned in a 74, Steve Wolter and Chris Glinski shot 76, John Dobroski with a 78, and Steve Jaeger shot 79.  Great playing guys!  The winners and payouts in the team event are detailed below in addition to the skins winners.  Congrats to all!

Second Team at Currie - Results

Gentlemen –

The Currie Second Team romped at the National today, winning the event with an excellent total of 277 points.  Greenfield was a distant 2nd with 210 points and Dretzka took 3rd with 192.  Fourteen of our 16 players won 13 or more points.  Leading the way were Doug Bowring and Mark Cuthbert with 24 each, Steve Jaeger with 23, Steve Amble with 22, and Rich Saks with 21.  Jaeger was our medalist with an 80.  Doug Bowring shot 81, and Saks and Gerry McGrath 82. 

The highlight of the day was a hole in one by Vince Vitrano of the Oakwood club on hole number 8.  A couple of dull-witted guys, including our own Jessie Alba, failed a basic intelligence test by putting their name on the closest to the pin flag on that hole below Vince’s name.  😊

Two of our guys took skins, Amble with birdie on 8 (Hi handicap flight) and Billy Z with birdie on 17.

We have now won all 3 of this season’s events with just 1 more to go, that on August 31 at the Green Monster.  We have a rather commanding lead of 143 points over second place Brown Deer on the season.  It would be easy to be complacent going into that match, but we won’t be.

For the total point award for the season we have 4 players leading with between 55 and 58 points, Jaeger, Phil Levin, yours truly, and Bowring.  It will be an exciting finish at the goat ranch.

The usual summaries are listed below.

Please remember to post your scores.  That will not be done for you. 

Thanks to everyone who came out to play today, and to Director Pederson for all the work he does for these matches.  Thanks also go to Scott Walecki for keeping everything running smoothly, and for handling the scoring duties flawlessly.

See ya,

Jack
