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.

Second Team Results at Brown Deer 8/20/17

Gentlemen –

Well, we had a chance to overtake Brown Deer at their house in the final 2017 Second Team match, but we couldn’t quite get the job done.  We did manage to win the event with 229 points, but Brown Deer was a close second with 225, so we ended the season in second place behind them by 25 points, 1099 to 1074.  Whitnall finished in third place, 73 points behind us. 

Gary Zwirlein led the team with 23 points. Rick Reiter picked up 20 and Phil Levin, Dom Carini, Rich Saks, and Darrel Frenzel all grabbed 18.  Lee Gardner was our medalist with a fine 74, the second lowest score in the event.  Nader Pakroo, Levin, and Mike O’Neil all shot 80.  It’s not official yet, but it appears Frenzel took a skin with a birdie on 3 and O’Neil took one with a birdie on 10.  We did not win a flag event.

Our high point man for the season was, drum roll please……., Director Brian Pederson, winning 88 points in five matches, a 17.6 average.  Saks was second with 78, and Frenzel captured 70.  For the season we averaged 215 points as a team, winning 3 of the 5 events.  Thirty members played at least one event for the team on the season.  For the second straight year the National was off the rotation, but that will end now and our track will be in the mix next year, I believe, which should be an advantage to us.

In summary, we gave it a good shot but at the end of the day, we couldn’t overcome our poor showing at Greenfield last month, where Brown Deer won their only event of the season, beating us by 83 points.  So, we’ll have to wait until next year to hoist the trophy again.  That will be my 10th year as captain of this motley crew.  How time flies.

Thanks to everyone who came out and played on the team this year and to everyone who supported in one way or another along the way.  Special thanks go to Director Pederson who handles this whole activity in excellent fashion all season long.  It is a thankless and time consuming task, no doubt.

See ya,

Jack
