WNL Week 11

Sorry for the delay in entering scores. No change in Division leaders – they all stay at the top.  There were some shifts below them, though, check out where you stand:

Two guys nab two proxies this week, which is pretty selfish if you ask me! Beitlich throws a back-to-back darts on #11 and #12; and Wethington finished his first nine in time to jump on the other nine to help his team AND wins a proxy on each side…a rare moment indeed!

1-2-3 Tee Sheet & Team Listing (Revised)

Due to a couple of withdrawals, the teams and tee sheet needed to be re-shuffled. Here is the current event information.

Good luck and see everyone on Saturday!

Guest Day Recap

On a lovely warm Friday some of the BMGA's best and their buddies played in guest day.

The greens were fast, the rough thick, and the pins tight.

4 man scramble scores went from 58 to 78 playing from the Blues.  Team Stoner came in first place.

On course events on the par 3's include Double your tickets, The Golden Ticket and Play Another One.

The event was followed by a raffle and prizes along with a great dinner.

Thanks to all the participants, the sponsors, and of course Brookview staff.


WNL – Week 10 Recap

Well the wind was blowing but we were not drowned out like the weather dweebs predicted.  This week’s winner for worst scorecard goes to this group of first namers (my findings in red):

Sweet Card Brah

At least you had team numbers on there…  Give me an initial or something, especially if there are two Mikes (or whoever) on your team.  Remember, it is clear in our league guide that this card could have been voided and both teams would receive 0 points for these matches…but I’m a generous guy.  For now.

There were mostly close matches, so not a lot of movement.  However, I Like Big Putts beat up on Loopers 49.5-26 (there was a no-show, thus the awkward point total) and gained on 2nd place in the BCC that is being dominated by Fairway 2 Heaven.

The other Divisional leaders also all stay in the lead – Foreplay in the BCC South; Range Balls in the GVC East; and Drive 4 Show in the GVC West.  Might be a race for the Wildcard in each Conference if these guys don’t let up!

2-Man Rotation Recap

It was chilly, brisk and windy June Saturday morning for the 2-Man Rotation event. There were 22 teams spread over 3 flights. The hole locations were also set up extremely difficult with some of them in places that most competitors have never seen.

Once again we had some wonderfully compacted scoring in each flight. 5 of the 6 groups in Flight #1 were only separated by 3 strokes (72-75). 7 of the 9 groups in Flight #2 were only separated by 5 strokes (78-83). And in Flight #3, 5 of the 7 groups were separated by 8 strokes (80-88).

As seems to always be the case with the 2-Man Rotation, the scores, in all flights were very tight through the first 12 holes and first 2 formats of scramble and better ball. However, the tournament was once again decided as each team progressed through the alternate shot format. Separation within each flight began to occur and those that played well in the alternate shot format on the final 6 holes were able to move themselves up the leaderboard. It was fun to use the new "live scoring" app and watch the leaderboard begin to adjust. In the end, hole 18 played a pivotal role to the finishing order in each flight.

When all was said and done, flight #1 finished in tie for 1st between 2 teams with a final score of 72(E). Flight 2 also finished in a tie for 1st between 2 teams with a score of 78(+6). Flight 3 was the only flight that did not have a tie with a winning score of 80(+8).

Here are the hole prize winners, full event final results, with payouts and cup points for each flight:

Introducing On Course Scoring

Over the next few tournament the BMGA will introduce on course scoring for our weekend events.  Our system was tested in a limited fashion at the Greek Scramble with positive results.  So we will be opening up on-course scoring to all tee times in the 2-Man Rotation.

How Does It Work

Prior to the tournament, each member of a four-some would receive an e-mail on directions on how to login to the scoring site.  Only one person from each foursome needs to enter scores online.  Scoring is done from a mobile phone using a web browser.  There are no special apps to download.  The e-mail will include the Web Address, Tournament Number and Scoring Code to login.


IMPORTANT: Only one individual from each tee time needs to enter scores!

Once logged in you will see three tabs: Scoring, Leaderboard and Tee Times.  The Scoring tab may look different for each event.  In the above image, we are looking at the scoring for the 2-Man Rotation.  For each hole, enter the score for the team and click Next Hole.  When you click on the Leaderboard, you can see exactly where you are in the tournament at a glance.  Make sure to click Refresh Leaderboard to get the latest results.

IMPORTANT: The physical scorecard is required.  Online scoring is OPTIONAL and not required.  It's there for fun and see what is happening on the course.

After the tournament we would love to hear feedback.


WNL – Week 9 Recap

Well the forecast earlier this week called for rain, and that forecast was wrong (shocker) - a beauty of a night to tee 'er up and let 'er rip.  Not very much movement in standings this week, but some pretty big swings...

in the GVC West, Drive 4 Show was up a mere 7 points on Team Hack Attack heading into the week, but after the dust settled they ended up 21.5 points ahead.  D4S beat up on Foreplay 48.5-26.5 while THA lost to CTB 34-46.

Range Balls remained steady with a comfortable win over Young Gunz 45-35 to increase to 18.5 points ahead of WTF, who lost 38-42 to I Like Big Putts.  Zed Heads scored a whopping 49.5 points to lead the scoring this week, but with Range Balls big win they only gained 4.5 points and stay in 3rd.

Fairway 2 Heaven remains atop the BCC North by 27 points with another win, this time defeating Six Pack 44-36.  Young Gunz, I Like Big Putts, and Last Call have their work cut out the rest of the season chasing these freaks and their league leading 306 points.

The tightest Division after this week is the BCC South.  Foreplay lost as stated above, and the Loopers and CTB took advantage.  Loopers beat the defending champions, Drawshank Redemption, 43-37 to climb within 4.5 points of Foreplay.  Meanwhile CTB dominated Team Hack Attack 46-34 to climb within 8 points of the lead.  Last place Bald Man Brewing Co. jumped to only 22 points back (they were 43.5 back) with a huge win over Putt 4 Dough 48-27.

Obviously anything can happen, and there are a lot of matches left for teams to make a move - so nobody should feel out of the hunt.

WNL – Week 8 Recap

We've reached the mid-way point of the season - with a couple rainouts it certainly doesn't feel like Week 8.  Remember, there is no 1st half/2nd half winners - the payouts now go to 2 Conference winners ($40/dude on both taem) and the other 2 Division winners ($20/dude on both teams).  Then 2 wildcard teams (one from each Conference) round out the playoffs but win $0.

The GVC is the tight conference right now - Range Balls (255.5 pts) holds a slight lead over WTF (244 pts).  Drive 4 Show (253) lost their first week but hold a seven point lead over Team Hack Attack (246).  Up in the BCC, Fairway 2 Heaven (262) holds a comfortable lead over Young Gunz (244)...for now.  And Foreplay (259.5) is up over Loopers (238.5).  No movement in the standings from last week.  And we got another tie between Loopers and WTF.

2017 WNL Standings-Week 8

Individual Low Gross:

  • Mr. Richard Brynteson dominated the front with a 33 (?!?!) beating out a couple of usual suspects (Howie and Supalla) by one for the $10.  The man says he’s never broken par, yet nearly made birdie on #9, meaning this is one cool customer.  Nicely done, BAGGER (he also won the 2-man low net)!

2-Man Low Net (even weeks):

  • 1st: Richard Courtney (32) & Richard Brynteson (29) - 61 (front) - $17.50 each
  • 2nd: Peter Steichen (35) & Mark Lauffenburger (31) - 66 (back) - $10 each
  • 3rd: Gary Scharmer (36) & Jim Hegedus (31) - 67 (front) - $7.50 each

Weekly Hole Winners ($10 each):

  • Closest-to-Pin-in-Two #1: Jim Husnik
  • Closest-to-Pin #4: Dan Olson
  • Closest-to-Pin #8: Steve Latham
  • Long Putt #9: Rich Benson
  • Closest-to-Pin-in-Two #11: Don Grove
  • Closest-to-Pin #12: Brent Wolosyn
  • Closest-to-Pin #17: Brent Lindstrom
  • Long Putt #18: Jay Steffenhagen

There were a few people saying we should write down whether we make a putt or not on the closest-to cards…it’s not an official rule, but would be fun to see!

WNL – Scorecard Rant

I'm working on getting scores in the system for Week 8, but first...

Guys.  Scorecards are slipping.  I have some sloppy cards, and a card with a double whammy this week: no team numbers and no last names.  Sweet!  Steve, Gary, Dan, Jim - not even the guy keeping score can put his last name?  You all signed the card and...nobody noticed?  Let's introduce ourselves on the first tee, eh boys?  A little handshake, a little "I'm sorry, what was your last name?" if needed?  After the round, if you don't know your team number by now (?!?!), please grab someone on your team, grab your captain, grab me, and ask!  I enter in 32 scorecards a week, hole by hole, and there are 4 guys on each scorecard...I need your help to make this as smooth and accurate as possible.  This takes a long time when things are perfect.  I can research missing info, but c'mon - I shouldn't need to.

If you look at the card after the round (like you should) and you don't see your last name, your team number, or you have a missing or incorrect handicap please - make the change in a legible fashion. It could be voided and you all get 0.  You are all responsible for the scorecard, not just the scorekeeper.

Rant over, but below is the League Guide section on Scorecards.  I'm not voiding any this week (including the above super-sucky card as it is known) but I could have voided at least one card each week, and I am getting close to being a harda$$ about it, boys.  You're breaking me.  To the 98% keeping great cards, keep it up - it's very much appreciated.


The League will provide Official League Scorecards and are to be picked up from the Starters.  All matches and Team points are based on accurate and readable scorecards.
The following rules apply to all players:

  • Only the Official Card will be accepted each week. This scorecard will allow for the Match, Match Total, and the Weekly Game
  • It is the policy of the club that at least one golfer from each team must sign the scorecard.
    Submitted cards not attested to by group can be considered void (at the discretion of the WNL Director).
  • All Players full names must be clearly printed (both first and LAST names).
    • Inability to determine who the players are may cause the card to be voided.
  • The Players Team # and Handicap must be clearly identified on the card.
  • Scorecards must be turned in each Wednesday before going home. Scorecards not turned in by the time the WNL Director goes home will be voided and not considered for any point totals.  The WNL Director will ensure there is a prominent drop location each week.
  • UNREADABLE CARDS WILL BE VOIDED BY THE WNL DIRECTOR. The decision to void ineligible score cards is at the discretion of the WNL Director. Please ensure your card is legible.
