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.

Individual and 2-Man Match Play Re-Cap

We had a great season of completion in both the single man and 2-man match play events.

Even with weather hiccups we all felt this year, I want to thank all the participants in both events for keeping everything on schedule and getting the matches completed as they were supposed to and kept everything on track.

SINGLE MAN MATCH PLAY RE-CAP

The single man match final pitted Dave Supalla against Steve Broyer. Dave and Steve chose to hold the final at The Meadows. Dave Supalla had a great day and finished his round with a 74, and with great day like that, he was able to close out the championship with a 5&4 victory to become the 2017 Individual Match Play Champion - Congratulations Dave!

Here are the final brackets and prize report for the single man tournament.

2-MAN MATCH PLAY RE-CAP

The 2-Man Match Play saw the teams dwindle down to Deede/Rogers versus Bolduc/Egan. Egan played a great round in the President's Cup the day before the 2-Man final and the family team of Deede/Rogers took a brief 3 week hiatus for a vacation before being able to schedule the final match. However, the break of play certainly seemed to help them and Egan couldn't carry his play in the President's Cup into the final. Deede/Rogers performed exceptionally in the final and won the match in the same fashion as the single man with a 5&4 victory. Congratulations Mike Deede and Ryan Rogers!

President’s Cup Re-Cap

The re-Scheduled Presidents Cup was held this past Saturday. It was a steamy day but still better weather than the original date!

We had 3 flights in this years event - Member Net, White Net & President's Flight

The Member Net flight finished in a tie for first place between Brian Egan and Ted Roberts. Trent Mayberry finished a close 3rd, with Mark Kraus right on his heels in 4th.

The White Net flight showed no contest as Ermin Cicic ran away with the flight, with the best point total in the whole field of +20. Sheldon SIlberman finished respectably in 2nd.

The President's Flight was as hotly contested as the temperature was on Saturday. In the end, Doug Paquette surpassed the past president's and won the title!

WNL Champions…WTF?!?!

That's right, WTF (Where's The Fairway) is your 2017 BMGA Wednesday Night League Champions!

WTF

Captain Andy Kim and his squad finished runner-up in 2016 and came back to have a strong 2017 season - WTF finished the regular season with the most points (635) and on a 6 week winning streak.  After a bye in round 1, they kept rolling with a win in the semi-finals and then last night won the Championship 43-37 over CTB.

Matt Grove and his CTB team had a good run, also winning the final 6 weeks of the regular season and 1st two rounds of the playoffs as a wildcard.  They put up a good fight in their loss last night, but came up short to a white-hot WTF team.  It was good to see that they were all smiles for their final selfie of the season.

Congrats to WTF!
