MCPLA Club Ryder Cup Challenge at Oakwood Park Golf Course - Results

Currie Ryder Cup Participants:

Given all the rain, Oakwood was in great condition. The weather threatened but ultimately allowed us all to finish, and the Currie men remained in contention throughout the afternoon. We were close, but ultimately we finished 3rd, just 2 points behind Greenfield's winning team. The final team standings were:

Greenfield: 12.5 points
Brown Deer: 11.5
Currie: 10.5
Whitnall: 8.5
Oakwood: 5.5
Grant: 5.5

The dynamic duo of Bryan Olen and Doug Schaefer took all 3 points, and the teams of Pederson/Collins, Silkey/Fenzl, and Levin/Sweeney each got 2 points.

Special shout out to Tim Nielson, President of the host Oakwood Men's Club and Oakwood Pro Adam Anderson did a fabulous job in their work organizing, officiating, and scoring the event.

I want to thank everyone on our Currie team for coming out for what was a very fun and highly competitive event which ended Oakwood's 2-year reign as holders of the MCPLA Ryder Cup. We can take heart in a 3rd place finish, and start thinking about winning the whole thing next year when it will be hosted by the new trophy holders at Greenfield Park.

I'd be interested in everyone's thoughts about the event, and what if anything can be done to refine and improve it.

Thanks again, and see you on the links.
