New guy of the week is Lee Orwig on team Hack Attack. Lee was one of the first sponsors I was able to secure for the scorecard and he wasn’t even in the league yet. If your looking for a personal injury attorney Lee is your man. I was excited last week to finally run into him on the deck. I’m afraid I was concentrating more on the tater tots than asking questions so if you see Lee say Hi and introduce yourself.

Games: I left the game cards at the barbershop I’ll fill it in Monday morning…..

Week 10 Results

July 1st is known as Bobby Bonilla day, well June 30th is now know as Charlie Morse day. Talk about a round that will never be forgotten and will be talked about for years to come. A 7 for 9 handicap, Charlie manages to be 4 over after 7 holes. On #8 he puts his tee shot less than a foot from the pin. On #9 he drops his 2nd shot (90 yards) into the cup for an eagle. -3 under on the last two holes. Congratulations Charlie and yes you got a skin for #9 oh and Low net, oh and closest to the pin on #8.

The new guy of the week will be postponed since I broke my phone and the picture wasn’t in the cloud. This week we have off so I’ll see you guys next week.

1st Half of the BMGA is in the books. Each of the 4 divisions has a competitive race going.  The new guy of the week is Alex Harding  He is originally from Iowa.  He was drafted by Darin Allen early in the draft for reasons that are unknown.

Week 8 Results

What a week in Golf. No new guy of the week because I wasn’t there to take a picture this week. CTB reclaimed their #1 spot this week with a huge 52.5 win to leapfrog our great sponsor Bald Man Brewery. This week CTB play the hottest team in the league Putt for Dough. A 7 week win streak is on the line for PFD who are so desperate to put their names on the trophy! Hack Attack who desperately, needs a huge win faces off against last place (But their grinders) Foreplay. Another great match up will be Who’s your Caddy playing Last Call. Last Call is led by Bob Boufford who has had a career making season so far. Good Luck Guys….

Week 7 Results

Hot Wednesday night this week! Quick rule update that has been going on that needs to be addressed. You CAN’T help your teammate with his putts. The way the league is setup Yes we have teams and your playing with a teammate, but you both are in a separate match so Please don’t help your teammate with putts. I could go into more detail, but that pretty much says it all. Also on the spreadsheet ignore the Weekly Results page its not correct and I don’t have enough time in the day to bother with it.

The New guy of the week is the young guy on the right Carson Walker. He’s a natural at meeting people and his new buddy Chuck Bernardy can vouch that this kid has some game. Apparently on a weekend tournament this Spring he didn’t put in money for skins and sunk an eagle on #3. Opps! Carson is from Chicago originally where he attended East Lake High School. Currently he is a Wealth enhancement director for UBS.

This week in the standings a few teams made some strong moves playing division opponents, so the standings definitely had to be adjusted. Ramiro is still on top of the individual points board. Who’s going to stop him?

Week 6 Results

Thanks everyone for being aware of speeding up play this week. If we all can stay in that mentality please feel free to say something to your group if things start slowing down in your foursome.

New Guy of the week is Christian Olson. He grew up in Monticello and was a part of that great winning tradition of the Monticello High School Stars. With a 1-2-1 start to his BMGA career Christian is slowly getting into the groove. Single and no pets Christian plans on concentrating his time this Summer hitting the range and dialing in those putts.

Worth noting this week. 9th green at 9 plugged in their Buzz Saws this week and cut up their opponents 50.5 to 29.5…. Matt McClaren shot his career round on Wednesday night 37 net 29. Putt for Dough has won 5x in a row and plays Par than Bar next. Good Luck Boys!

Week 5 Results (Slowest Round of golf EVER)

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.

Week 4 Results

The new guys of the week are Brad Reifsteck and Jake Walezko. They may be wearing the same colors, but they are not on the same team. Brad (left guy) was drafted by Brooky Strong (Jeff Martin Captain) because he needed a new guy who could produce big numbers. Brad pitched for Northern Iowa in his hey day. 89mph was about the top of his range, but his swing speed is way over that. Brad is a real estate investor for fun, and a civil engineer by trade. Jake (Right guy) on the other hand was drafted by Mid Round Crisis (Brad Jordan Captain) because well just because…. Jake is 2-1 in league and is off to a hot start. He grew up in Lakeville playing his early years at Crystal Lake. Jake has a baby on the way so he is hoping to play as much golf until the little one arrives. A tidbit about Jake, once he was driving on Hwy 90 and flipped his car, Yes he walked away just fine, the car not so much

Week 4 Game Results

No team has taken dominance so far so at least we can say the draft was a success on evening out the teams. Brookview’s patio has been a huge success and if we can somehow figure out how to order food a tad faster we might all get some more beer.

Week 3 Results

The New Guy of the week is Eric Kelly… Yes the man with 2 first names. I talked to Eric after his round in week 3 over a pint of Bald Man Beer. Eric was eyeing his longest putt on #18 hoping it would hold and it did… Eric was drafted on the last pick of the draft as the teams wildcard according to Captain Phil. Eric is getting married this Summer and is having his Grooms Dinner here at Brookview in Late July. Unfortunately the dinner is not on a Wednesday night.

Week 3 Game Results

First off Welcome ZED Heads for the first time in years on being #1 in there division with a gigantic win last week 50.5 points… Bald Man Brewery was on their heels scoring 47.5 points to jump right back in their division.
