WNL Draft Results

Here are your results of the 2018 BMGA Draft Night Party.  There are some good looking teams on this list but a lot of unanswered questions.  Did WTF do enough to stay on top?  Can Team 13 shake the unlucky number and get out of the basement this year?  Does Young Gunz need a new name?  Will the two father-son duos reign supreme this year?  Did we need more music last night?  All of these questions will be answered soon.  League starts in three weeks!

Welcome to the BMGA 2018

I just wanted to take a quick moment to let everyone know some of the updates and changes on the bmga.org website.

Login/Password

If you are having issues logging in, there is a "Lost Password" option on the home page (to the right of this post in blue).  Simply enter your username to reset your password.  If you need to change your password, once you are logged in and under your name (upper right corner) you can choose "Edit My Profile" to update your password.  This is going to be updated in the coming days to be a little more "friendly" but it does work.

Register For Tournaments

Once you are logged in, you can register for any tournaments by simply clicking a tournament event and choosing register.  You can play online via Paypal or drop a check off at the course.  We will also be adding a Venmo option for tournaments.  Details are coming for payment options.

Stats, More Stats and Even More States

Curious how you did last year?  Look under League Stats for a few options:

  • Next Gen Stats: This will show you ever year you have been in league, your average scores and you can even see how you did against others in the league.  Pretty neat stuff.
  • Cup Points (Year): This will show you BMGA Cup Points for the past two years and this years stats will appear here as well.
  • League Stats (Year): Will show you the league average per hole scoring, top 15 in Eagles, Birdies and Pars for each year.

Message Board

This did not get used enough last year.  Want to talk trash, tell the world why you are the best player or simply have a bit of fun.  Check out the message board to see what is happening.

Again, if you have any thoughts of things you would like to see added to the website please let me know.  If you are new to the BMGA this year, I would recommend checking out the Local Rules under Information.  There is a lot of good stuff there.

If you have any issues getting your password reset you can always e-mail registration@bmga.org for assistance.

Images you saw at the banquet

Back last summer (you recall a summer, yes)?  Larry Jocelyn was nice enough to take action photos of those that played in the 3ball (Calcutta event).  Those images take 2 GB to store and we had a hard time finding a place for them to live...until now.

Here is a public access Google location where you might be able to see some awesome swings.

Have fun.  Roger.

 

BMGA Banquet Recap

We had a great turnout for the Banquet this year.  Over 3 times the 2016 banquet!  Over 20 kids enjoyed the play area and pizza.  Food was catered by Crave.

Unfortunately the AV system turned off, so we were not able to show all the slides.  Here they are, PDF format.  Banquet presentation 2017

 

And so the end of an era ushers in a new one.

Shootout Recap

The 2017 Shootout was held on Saturday. It was a gorgeous day for the event.

After the front nine was played by the 24 qualifiers, the back nine field of 10 began to take place. There was not a chip off for the turn, and the cut line ended at an net even par 36. Making the turn were, Steve Couture, Jason Lunetta, Stan Hop, Wayne Nau, Ermin Cicic, Richard Brower, Pete Steichen, Jim Hegedus, Don Grove and Roger Hamm.

Nau was eliminated on #10 after a chip. Lunetta fell on #11 with a double. Richard Brower lost a 3-way chip-off on 12. Steichen, eliminated on 13, left even before the group behind him finished...he know it was over after an 8. Hegedus missed a short putt on 14 to force a chip off and was eliminated. Hamm had a rough go on 15, and after an 8, was eliminated. Grove gave himself some left side trouble on 16 (even played 7 for a shot), and was eliminated with 10. #17 saw some drama as all 3 players went to a chip-off shootout...2 solid chips to by Hop and Couture (4'6" and 4'1") eliminated Cicic.

Both, Hop and Couture were receiving strokes on 18 so it was an even duel on 18. Great drives were hit by both, and the 2nd shots ultimately determined the winner. With Hop just off the green in the rough on the right and , and Couture well right and short sided. Couture was unable to get up and down and finished with a bogey. Hop hit a decent chip, but left himself a knee knocking 4 foot slider for par.....DRAINO....STAN HOP WINS THE 2017 SHOOTOUT!!!

Congratulations Stan!

Below is the prize report.
