Metro Seniors Wrap Regular Season

Metro Seniors finished up the season with the Valley team hosting at Brookview for the finale, with starter extraordinaire Steve Slivken.

The Golden team, languishing in 8th place took on 3rd place Daytona. As in years past, Roger Hamm took on the Daytona captain, long-time friend and former boss from 35 years ago, Don Cross. Roger spotted Don the front 9, losing 2 down but came back to win the back 9 and the match with the final putt, taking 4 points. Doug Paquette, with a field promotion to B player after is solo 4&3 win in 2 man match play also took home 4 points winning the front in run-away fashion and hanging onto the match at the end. Doug Diedrich took home 2 points on the front 9 but couldn’t hold the lead and Ward Eames struggled a bit versus a solid opponent and was swept. The 10-14 loss leaves Golden in 8th place. They will play 7th place Columbia in the playoff round at Oak Marsh.

The host team, Valley continued their winning ways scratching out a 13-11 win over 2nd place Braemar enough to put them in solo 4th for the playoff round. They will take on 3rd place Daytona at Oak Marsh. Valley trails Daytona by 9 for the season. Ramiro Sifuentes, while walking to the gold tees on #1 was heard to say “I’m playing the golds and only giving 1 shot – if I lose I am quitting golf”. Ramiro shot a net 78 and split his match by virtue of a par on 18. Dean Penk shot a nice net 73 and was able to gain 4 points in the process. Jim Husnik, the rock star, posted a nice net 75 and swept his opponent for 6 points. Ted Roberts also posted a net 75, but ran into a buzz saw and was swept.

As noted next week is the sole playoff week (at Oak Marsh where Ramiro and Roger just won in the Sr MPGA Publinks) where each team plays the one closest to them in the standings. Right now, the top 8 are:

  1. University (207)
  2. Braemar (184)
  3. Daytona (177)
  4. Brookview Valley (168)
  5. Fountain Valley (165)
  6. Wirth (164)
  7. Columbia (157)
  8. Brookview Golden (150)

The Weekly Rant  

Future Events

  1. Make-up of Week #4 – As of August 4, “Week #4” will be made up on September 7. If you were scheduled to play on May 18, you are likely on the schedule. Check with your Team Captain if you have any questions or conflicts.
  2. WNL Playoffs – The first round of the playoffs is scheduled for September 14. Conference Championships will follow on September 21 with the WNL Championship scheduled for September 28.

Reminders

  1. Pace of Play is becoming even more critical now that the sun is setting earlier each week. Here are some examples of how everyone can pace of play a little faster:
    • Be early to your tee time.
    • Do not exceed time limit to search for a lost ball. The time limit is three (3) minutes!
    • Putting out after missing a putt vs. remarking a one footer.
    • Giving your opponent that six inch putt.
    • Playing ready golf vs. strictly following the “honors” system.
  2. If an issue arises on the course during WNL play that may impact the result of a match, please bring the matter to the WNL Director’s (or other BMGA Board Member) attention so we can try to resolve it right away.

Handicaps

  • If you are not entering your scores (or accurate scores) you are hurting yourself, your team and the people you are playing against. This includes WNL scores and “Away” scores.
  • All players are responsible for entering a correct course handicap per USGA Rule 3.2c (1). Post your scores for WNL as they are not entered by the BMGA or Brookview. 
  • The WNL Director is not responsible for checking the accuracy of the player’s handicap on the scorecards. Check the GHIN App before teeing off to get your current handicap and adjust it to the Side (Front or Back) and Tees (Member or Gold).

Scorecards  

  • Scorecards should be signed by at least one player from each team.
  • If someone concedes a hole, please mark an “X.”  This is especially important when both players score a 9 but the hole is conceded by the player who picks up their ball first.

Metro Seniors win their matches

Both of the BMGA Metro Senior teams won their matches 14-10 at Como golf course in the Metro Seniors golf league. Valley achieved 4th place – now 8 points behind 3rd and Golden held on to 8th place – only 15 behind Valley.

@Steve-Shellenbaum led the way for the Golden Team with a nice net 71 and a sweep for 6 points. @Dan-Olson also shot a net 71 but could only manage 1 point with a tie on the back nine. @Doug-Paquette shot a net 72 with a 49 on the front but came back strong on the back with a 40 to win the back for 2 points. @Doug-Diedrich didn’t have that good a round but neither did his opponent leading to a 5 point win for Doug. Golden wins over Columbia 14-10.

Playing the home team, Como, the Valley Team continued their winning ways scratching out a 14-10 win – enough to move up from 6th place to a tie for 4th.  @Marty-Mangold shot a great net 72 along with a resurgent @Randy-Zjedlik with a net 71, each gaining a 6 point sweep. @Chuck-Bernardy hung in there but fell just short on the 9th and 18th holes and settled for a single point. Captain @Sheldon-Silberman (net 83!) went off the rails on several holes but squeaked out a tie on the back winning the final two holes. “With my opponent only 65 yards out, I had to go for it on 18 and luckily I bounced over the creek in the front of the green from 180 yards out. I never should have taken that shot!”

Next week Valley hosts the league at Brookview where the the new irrigation system is all but done and all holes should be fully in play. Golden takes on 3rd place Daytona and Valley plays the 2nd place Braemar.  There are a lot marbles on the table! This will be the last regular week of the season with position playoffs the following week.

Mike Manion also had a 36 but it was attained on the Back so a stroke was added to his score. Sorry Mike. See page 12 in the WNL Guide for more information)
  2. Low Net – Randy Milbert (Front) with a 31 – $10. (Note: Stan Hop and Andrew Gruber also had Net 31s but because they were attained on the Back, an additional stroke was added to their scores putting them at Net 32s. Sorry boys!)

Metro Senior teams looking good

Both of the BMGA Metro Senior teams descended on Valleywood in hopes of gaining ground in the last few weeks of the season. Even though some changes have been made to the course and many trees have been removed resulting in stumps and wood chips, our boys had a pretty good day.

The Golden Team slammed last place Gross (who only brought two players) taking 22 of the possible 24 points and jumping up in the standings from 11th to 8th place. @Dan-Olson (net 69) and @Gary-Ridout (net 69) took 6 points each. Captain @Roger-Hamm (net 73) and @Ward-Eames (net 76) both took 5 points.

According to Dan Olson: “The most noteworthy thing that happened was hole 7 (par 3); I almost aced it, ending up 4 feet past the hole.  My opponent is on the green maybe 50 feet away.  Ward is over the green, nearly in the hazard.  So Ward chips in for birdie; John makes a 50 foot putt for birdie, leaving me with a tricky 4 foot putt.  But I made it!  All 3 of us birdied the hole!”

Valley Team continued their winning ways with a solid 17-7 win over Green Haven.  Both @Ramiro-Sifuentes  and @Dean-Penk shot 37 on the front nine. Dean was up 3 at the turn but Ramiro gave 2 strokes to his opponent and pushed for a tie on the front. Dean kept the petal to the metal and shot a 39 on the back for a net 64 and took all 6 points. Ramiro shot a nice 40 on the back for a net 68 and won the back and the match for 5 points. @Richard-Courtney bounced back from last week and took 5 points tying the back nine by winning the last three holes for a net 71. @Jim-Husnik shot a net 68 but could only scratch out a tie on the front nine for 1 point. Even with 17 points gained the team dropped from 5th to 6th in the league but only 1 point behind the two teams tied for 4th and 4 points out of 3rd.

Next week we play at Como where Golden takes on 7th place Columbia and Valley plays the 13th place host team.  Two weeks to go and we are moving up!

  1. Pace of Play is critical to the enjoyment of all especially now that the sun is setting earlier each week. Here are some examples of how everyone can pace of play a little faster:
    1. Be early to your tee time.
    1. Do not exceed time limit to search for a lost ball. The time limit is three (3) minutes!
    1. Putting out after missing a putt vs. remarking a one footer.
    1. Giving your opponent that six inch putt.
    1. Playing ready golf vs. strictly following the “honors” system.
  2. If an issue arises on the course during WNL play that may impact the result of a match, please bring the matter to the WNL Director’s (or other BMGA Board Member) attention so we can try to resolve it right away.

Handicaps

  • All players are responsible for entering a correct course handicap per USGA Rule 3.2c (1). Certain violations can lead to disqualification of the match. Current handicaps can easily be retrieved in the GHIN App as well as the computer terminal in the clubhouse.
  • Post your scores for WNL as they are not entered by the BMGA or Brookview. 
  • The WNL Director is not responsible for checking the accuracy of the player’s handicap on the scorecards. Check the GHIN App before teeing off to get your current handicap and adjust it to the Side (Front or Back) and Tees (Member or Gold).

Scorecards  

  • Listing of tee times, poor addition and sloppy handwriting are ongoing deficiencies.  Come on guys!
  • Scorecards should be signed by at least one player from each team.
  • If someone concedes a hole, please mark an “X.”  This is especially important when both players score a 9 but the hole is conceded by the player who picks up their ball first.

2-Person Scramble Details

Here are the details for this weekend’s 2-Person Scramble:

Date: Saturday, July 23rd
Tee Sheet: https://www.golfgenius.com/pages/8124475217776002949
Skins: https://forms.gle/8CNjcokuBzotevh78
Format: In the general area and bunker, “winter rules” will be allowed within 1 club length of the ball in play, not closer to the hole. A ball in a penalty area must be played from within the penalty area unless relief is taken per the applicable USGA rule(s). The player must play from the same cut of grass. For example, if the player is currently in the rough, they CANNOT use the 1 club length to reach the fairway. On the putting green, you must play from the same marked location.
Each player must use a minimum of 6 drives for the round to be valid.
Team Handicaps will be established on Thursday
