2nd Team @Currie


Well, the Currie Second Team rebounded nicely today from our loss at Grant last month. On a cool, windy day with wet sloppy fairways and US open style rough, our guys slogged and ground our way to 261 points, besting Whitnall by 56. Oakwood was third with 200, Brown Deer fourth with 192, Grant had 176, Greenfield 166, and Dretzka 138. For the season we are back in first place with a 9 point lead over Brown Deer, 18 over

Grant, and 28 over Whitnall.

Ten guys took 19 or more points with Mark Cuthbert, Mark Schreindl, and Rick Reiter all taking the max 24. Ken Collins was 1 off at 23 and Rich Saks and Rick Binder each took 22. Collins was our medalist for the day with a fine 76, the second best score of the day for the whole group. Cuthbert and Schreindl carded 79.

Tom Condella won a skin with a birdie on 16. I believe Mark Schreindl won a flag event, but I do not have those results right now.

Many thanks to Eric Gitter for setting the course up well and providing the event flags. Thanks also to Ken Collins for entering most of the scores into the laptop and to Steve Wolter for writing all the results on to the big board, enabling yours truly to stand around and look important.  

Thanks also go to 3 non playing helpers who came out early on this damp day, Tom Jardanowski, and Glen Jaeger who handling starting duties, and Jim Wilkinson, who spotted out on the course and did his best to keep guys moving along. Their help was very much needed and appreciated. Thanks also go to Second Team Director for the MCPLA, Brian Pederson for all his work in helping this event and all the others come off.  

And lastly thanks to all the guys who helped retrieve the event flags from the course, which was made difficult by the fact that all the carts were locked up. So, Pederson, Wolter, Jeff Camosy, Reiter, Bruss, and Collins all teamed up and fanned out over the course to bring the flags in. While parked on Highway 100 with my flashers going, I had the pleasure of watching Reiter sprint (I use the term loosely) across the 14th tee to grab the 13th hole flag. He still hadn’t recovered his breath when we got back to the clubhouse.

Today’s results and season standings are listed below and LINK TO SPEADSHEET for those of you who want all the numbers.

Next up is Dretzka on Sunday, June 30. I’ll be recruiting players for that match soon, but if you think you can do well there, feel free to let me know.
