Championship is Set!

Bald Man Brewery vs Who’s your Caddy

Who’s your Caddy took Hack Attack to the wood shed on Wednesday. 7 out of their 8 golfers one their match. On the other side of the Bracket I like Big Putts lost to Bald Man Brewery by 1 point to give Bald Man a ticket to the Championship show. This Wednesday at 4:00pm matches will start, its usually a slow round of golf so expect them to come in right around 6pm and the trophy presentations 6:30pm. Thanks Guys for a great year!

Team Pairings

Team List. The below is the final team list. Handicaps have been locked in.

The above guide has your locked in individual handicaps. Remember, we will take 85% of your handicap and that will be applied individual handicap.

Auction & Horse Race

The Auction will occur at Brookview, on the upper-deck at 7:00 PM on Wednesday, September 23rd.  The timing should work so those who are playing in the playoffs will be able to attend.  A few notes about this:– Max capacity on the deck is 36 people.  Therefore, when we reach capacity, we will ask teams to have only ONE PERSON on the deck so we can remain at capacity numbers.– There are LOTS of teams.  28 of them.  Should have been 26 but I screwed up, so now there are 28 – and I apologize in advance for the last nine holes – it’s going to be slow!  That means the draft MUST BE FAST paced.  We love people hanging out and having fun.  If you are being loud and disruptive during the draft, we will ask you to head down to the patio and continue your conversation.  That also means you should come prepared with the plan.

During the auction we will also be taking Horse Bet information as well.

Skins

We will be having a skins game this weekend.  There will be two pots, the first 18 holes and the last 9 holes.  Cost is $10 for Gross / Net or you can pay $20 and get into both skins pools.  If for some reason there are NO skins in the final 9 holes, that money will be moved to the first 18 hole skins pot.

To register for skins use this form: https://forms.gle/KG4YYWhHLkXzaxNw6

Tee Sheets & Format

Reminder, the tournament is on SUNDAY, September 27th.

Tee sheets are now available for both rounds here: https://www.golfgenius.com/pages/6726657575745537623

If I did it correctly, you will play with different people in the first 18 vs the last 9 holes.  The tee times are two shot-gun starts at 8:00 AM and 1:30 PM.  Most groups are threesomes and the goal is to get around the course quickly.  As part of the tournament, you will receive 2 drink tickets and a meal ticket.  We MUST start the second nine by 1:30 PM so we do not goof up the public tee sheet.

The first 18 holes you will NOT play with your partner.  It is a best-ball and a single score between the two players will count towards your final score.  The last 9 holes is Both Balls will count towards the final score.  All players will use 85% of their USGA Handicap.

Last night in League Play!

Thanks guys for another great season. This was definitely a Covid year so why wouldn’t Bald Man Brewery take the top spot this year for 2020… They scored a whooping 688 points to win their Conference and get a first round Bye. I like big putts won their division and will be the #2 spot in the playoffs facing off agains the wild card team Fairway to Heaven.

Hack Attack was solid all year long and posted 671.5 points to lock up their conference and secure the Bye as the #1 seed. Who’s your caddy wins their division and will be the #2 seed facing off against the wild card Putt for Dough.

The MVP of the league this year was Kent Riggs who plays at 9th Green on 9. He scored 84.5 points for the season, highlighted by week 9 against Fairway to Heaven he scored 8.5 points in his match. If you haven’t met him this year he’s a class act and if Richard cuts him this year he most certainly will be playing for Team 1 Jesse’s Barbershop/CTB. Congratulations on the $250 chit to the pro shop.

Sifuentes & McClernan named 2-Man Match Play Champions

The two man championship was played on Sunday August 30 on a top ten weather day between the team of Dan Grubb/Brian Beitlich (both 8 handicaps) and Ramiro Sifuentes/Matt McClernan (10&16 handicaps).  

The BMGA sent along it’s cub reporter who wrote back:’

The first hole was solidly won by Brian who two putted for par.  The second hole was halved with pars but on the third hole, Dan made birdie for the win.   The Dan/Brian team made par on #4 for a 3 up lead.  The teams halved #5 and on number #6 Ramiro made birdie for the win.  The seventh hole was won with Matt making net par for the win.  Dan/Brian were up 1 going into the 8th which was halved and so was the 9th. 

On number 10 every player made bogey but Matt was getting a shot so his net par made the match tied.   Dan/Brian came back with a par on #11 for the win and then Dan made his second birdie on #12 for a 2 up lead.   On #13 Ramiro made his birdie putt (second for the day) for the win.   And followed that up with a par on #14 for the win and making the match a tie going into #15.   Brian made a birdie on #15 to have his team go up 1 headed into #16.   But with Ramiro getting a shot and making par on 16, the match went back to a tie.  On 17 with a middle right pin position, Dan hit his tee shot to the far left of the green but then drained his 45 footer for his third birdie of the day.  More importantly, his team was going into 18 one up.   Only Ramiro had a decent tee shot to the green on 18 but pulled his approach in the weeds behind the green.  Both Dan and Brian made bogey and it was all up to Matt to extend the match.  He had a 13 foot, net par, uphill putt to extend the match.  

Bam!   He made it to extend the match.  Extra holes!   The teams decided to play #10 and Matt hit his approach 15 feet above the hole.   He then drained the downhill putt for a natural birdie and Team Ramiro Sifuentes/Matt Mcclernan were declared the champions.   It was a great and friendly match.  Both teams played well.
