16-man Team Runs Into Buzzsaw

Thanks to everyone who was able to come out at play on somewhat short notice. The Brookview 16-man team travelled to take on the boys from New Prague Golf Club on June 27th. The day did not go as planned. The boys from New Prague used their home course knowledge and easily dispatched of the Brookview squad 17.5 – 6.5.

Only two groups on the day were able to pull out the win. The Sustad/Grove duo took 2.5 points and the Gallagher/Krasen combo was able to nab 2.0 points. The other 6 squads were only able to muster 2 points collectively. Shot of the day goes to Kelly Gallagher who almost made an albatross on the par 5 – 13th hole and instead had to settle for a tap in eagle.

There were 7 skins awarded on the day:

Sustad/Grove – 2 on #7

Lueder/Kraus – 3 on #8

Manion/Towey – 4 on #11; 2 on #12

Gallagher/Krasen – 3 on #13

Swanson/Jordan – 3 on #15

Hendrikson/Grupa – 3 on #17

We are still alive for the playoffs with our final match taking place on Sunday, August 1st at home against Braemar. The top 2 teams in each division will move on to the playoffs so if we win, we are in.

Brookview 16-Man Team Cruises to Victory

The Brookview 16-man team defeated the boys from Fountain Valley 22-2 on Sunday, June 6th. The weather was hot and the wind was strong but we were able to win all 8 matches on the day. 6 of the teams were able to sweep and get all 3 points and the other 2 teams won their match 2-1.

The course played challenging at times, especially those holes into the wind. The hole location on 4 was pretty dicey in the back left corner of the green. It yielded some three putts as well as some putting it off the green. Holes 16-18 played dead into the wind and yielded no birdies on the day.

All the teams put in steady performances on the day. Individually, Perry Jacobson went out and birdied 3 out of the first 5 holes and his opponents weren’t able to recover. Mike Manion threw in an eagle on #2 (not good enough for a skin as Brad Jordan also eagled) and a few more birdies on the front 9. There were only 2 skins on the day: Manion/Sustad birdie on #8 and Brynteson/Swanson birdie on #15.

Our next match takes place on Sunday, June 27th at New Prague. We are both 2-0 on the season and we have the slight advantage having 36 total points to their 30 points. The winner of this match is guaranteed to make the playoffs so let’s bring our A game boys.
