Bald Man Brewery Triumphs in the Closest Match in Championship History!

Well it was a night to remember for both teams. The matches were up and down, but in the end every 1/2 point counted. It seems like we forget on how slow this match is compared to the regular season. 6pm after 2 hours of play some of the groups only had 7 holes completed. We had to stop play for lighting at 6:00pm which had to be another first for the Championship. 6:30 we got them back on the course and honestly I still think the fading sun didn’t speed them up. I was lucky enough to watch Luke Fox chip in on 8 from 30 yards out for his par to tie the hole. Crazy that one shot could decide the fate of a whole season. Once we realized the tie was inevitable we went to the 3 captains choice tie breakers that were announced to me only before the match. Bald Man won 16.5 to 15.5… It doesn’t get any closer and hats off to Who’s your Caddy for another spectacular season.

Thanks guys for another great year and thank goodness we had golf league to look forward to this Summer in our very first World Pandemic. Well most of us, Emmy Yates might have been thru a couple more. No banquet this year so the last event will be the shootout that is an invitation only, but you can come and watch.

One last thing if your interested in joining the board or perhaps you would like to Captain your own team into history contact Howie Hoffman, myself or any of the board members.

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!

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.

Please don’t forget about Week 1. We will be making up that week on August 26th and that will be our Grand finale Wednesday. What does that mean? No idea yet….. If you were scheduled to play week 1 that will be your tee time for August 26th. The race to the finish is getting really tight in 3 out of the 4 Divisions…

BCC North: Fairway to Heaven has a tiny lead over I like big putts and mid round crisis. This division will definitely go to the last week. Most likely the Wild Card team will come from this division.

BCC South: Bald Man is walking away with it although Foreplay might have a Christmas miracle left in their bag. CTB and The Loopers are finished, but who knows maybe we can have a side bet…

GVC East: Whose your Caddy has a slight lead over 9th green at 9… Range Balls could push thru if they can have a string of strong Wins.

GVC West: Hack Attack has a narrow 6.5 point lead over Putt for Dough. The wild card team is up in the air in this Conference.
