Clearly we have an issue with slow play! We had a great day of weather and plenty of sunlight, but seriously we need to discuss this issue much further… If your 4 some is not on top of the group in front of you something is WRONG. I need you Minnesota nice (never want to see conflict) people to say something to your 4 some… PLEASE play ready golf. Number 14 can be very difficult to navigate when maybe 1 guy could possibly drive the green. Let the other guys tee off for starters. Also if we are backed up, the group on the green wave the guys on the tee box to tee off and you guys back off for a moment. If your on an early tee time you better play fast, you set the pace for the whole night. more information will follow throughout the year.
The new guy of the week is no other than a local Hopkins kid Mike Saless. Drafted by the Loopers in the 4th round, Mike attributes his 2-2 match play record to his style and pure strength off the tee box. Clearly Mike is not a potential customer for JESSE’S Barbershop, but luckily for Bald Man Brewery he likes beer! Mike has a bit of pink in his golf gear so he is pretty easy to recognize from great distances. I asked him about the pink and well he got a great deal on a bag with pink on it and the cart well that just matched.
Week 5 and we are seeing the last place teams from 2020 dominating their division. Last Call has had some impressive wins and is leading its division thanks to veteran captain Bob Boufford who has yet to be defeated this season. Bob has been working on the maintenance crew at Brookview this season so you decide? (First hand knowledge on pin placements and boxes?)
CTB (aka Jesse’s Barbershop) went from the bottom of the barrel to #1 overall. Jesse the barber has yet to lose, it probably has something to do with those 300 yard bombs he hits that are somehow hitting the fairway for the first time in years?
Zed Heads whose history has been pretty mediocre has taken off… Randy Z has not only won all of his matches, he has destroyed his competition. Randy is leading the league in points scored and he has only played 4 out of 5 weeks. If you end up playing with Randy in your foursome play the other guy… Trust me…
Putt for Dough the one anomaly this year in the league… Ever since Roger took over this team they make it to the playoffs. A Championship will defiantly be in their future, but when? Roger has only played 3 weeks and so far the captain is still undefeated, although unlike Randy Z I would challenge Roger any day of the week in match play. David Hillsheim is the hot stick on this team scoring 25 points in 4 weeks. The key to beating this team is hoping David is on a bye.
