2-Man Scramble Results

Another weekend where all the bad weather somehow missed Brookview. We had a few flirting moments but barely had a rain drop.

We had another full tournament, with 52 players. In our Gross Division we had a two-way tie at -5 (67). Congrats to Justin Wallace + Tom Nestvold and Matt Grove + Richard Brynteson for earning $57.50 and 88 BMGA Cup points for each player.

In the Net division we had another tie. At -9 (63), we had Jim Sherburne + Ward Eames and Doug Paquette + Larry Hahka. They will also receive $57.50 and 88 BMGA Cup Points each.

In third place in the Gross Division, we have Doug Paquette + Larry Hahka. They earned $35.00 for their efforts. No BMGA Cup points as they already scored a greater number in the Net Division.

Speaking of the Net, we had a massive pile up at -8 with a three-way tie for 3rd place. Congrats to Justin Wallace + Tom Nestvold, Matt Grove + Richard Brynteson and Stan Hop + Steve Shellenbaum. They will receive $12.00 for their efforts. In addition, Stan and Steve earned 16 BMGA Cup Points for the 3-way tie.

Our next weekend event is the Club Championship on August 15th and 16th.

2-Man Best Ball Results

After a dark and scary 6:30 tee time, it turned out to be one of the absolute best weekends of golf one could ask for. In our first ever 2-Man Best Ball tournament, we featured the primary Net Flight with 85% handicaps and a second bonus Gross Flight.

The tournament features payouts for BMGA Cup Points for the top 5 teams in the Net Flight. In the Gross Flight, the top 2 teams are rewarded with chits but no BMGA Cup Points.

As a funny side to me, if we had a Net Skins game this weekend Stan Hops natural birdie would have been cancelled out by Howie’s natural eagle – net birdie on Hole #5. There was no skins but I just love the “Eagle – Net Birdie” moment.

In first place, congrats to John Bolduc + Peter Steichen for earning $90 per person and 100 BMGA Cup Points with their -11 performance.

Second place was a tie between Dan Klein + Stephen Wennblom and Stan Hop + Steve Shellenbaum earning $57.50 each and 75 BMGA Cup Points at -7.

Fourth place goes to our -6 team of Forrest Nelson + Steve Hartmann earning $37.50 each and 40 BMGA Cup Points each.

In a massive tie at 5th place, at -5 were the teams of Steve Slivken + Tom Hansen, Chuck Bernardy + Roger Hamm, Doug Paquette + Larry Hahka. Each earned 20 BMGA Cup Points and $8 they can use to spend on a Hot Dog and Chips.

In our Gross Flight. Howard Hoffman + Nick Schultz go -4 and earn $25.00 each. Forrest Nelson + Steve Hartmann go -2 and earn $15.00 each.

Our next weekend event is July 25th and is our 2-Man Scramble.

Tee Sheet Via Golf Genius

Tournament Format

The tournament is a net fourball event.  Each player will play their own ball throughout, using USGA rules, and record their gross score.  Per USGA rules, players will be allocated 85% of their handicap for a fourball event.  Details on USGA Handicap Allotments can be found here: https://www.usga.org/content/usga/home-page/handicapping/roh/Content/rules/Appendix%20C%20Handicap%20Allowances.htm

Per USGA Rules, players with a positive handicap will have their gross scores adjusted with an additional stroke where their handicaps mandates the addition.

Gold Tees

If you want to play the gold tees please let me know so we can score it correctly.  Per USGA rules, since the Member tees is par 72 and Gold tees are par 71, all players playing from Gold tees will have their handicap reduced by 1.


The Net event will be paid out for the top 5 spots (including ties).  Those individuals will also receive BMGA Cup Points.  We will also pay out the top 2 in Gross Flight instead of on-course challenges.  The gross flight will NOT receive BMGA Cup Points.

Rotation Results

What an amazing day for golf. The heat was turned up high, the wind was super calm and it made for some great scoring on the course. This year we tried something a little different and added a net division. This worked by calculating the team handicap into thirds. Scramble (35% low handicap + 15% high handicap), Fourball (85% of players handicap) and Alternate Shot (add both players – 50%).

In the Gross Flights, the champions will take home 100 BMGA Cup Points and $47.50 per person. Second place receives 75 BMGA Cup Points and $30 per player. (Unless there was a tie and it’s noted below.)

In the first flight, there was no surprise. The tournament director before the event started had already turned in their chit money. Brad Jordan + Howard Hoffman shot a solid -5 par, with two bogies in alt-shot but otherwise a clean card. Second place went to Richard Brynteson + Steve Hartmann at -2. The top two teams were tied at -5 through the fourball but couldn’t keep the pace down the stretch.

In the second flight Brian Beitlich + Dan Grubb ran away from the field with a -1. Gerald Meier + Steve Hallfin took second place at +3.

In the third flight, family duo of Nicklaus Grandstrand + Steve Grandstrand finished at +2. BMGA veterans Marty Mangold + Peter Steichen finished at +5.

In the fourth flight, Jeffrey Olson + Steve Couture took the top honors at +12. Tied for second place was Curtis Medina + John Bolduc and Kirk Williams + Ted Roberts. They will receive 35 BMGA Cup Points and $15 each for the second place tie.

Lastly, in the Net Flight, the family duo strikes again with a -8 (Nicklaus Grandstrand + Steve Grandstrand) and top honors. This earns them $25 each. In a three way tie for second place at -7 included: Brian Beitlich + Dan Grubb, Gerald Meier + Steve Hallfin and Kyle Egan + Nick Ward. They get to split the second place prize pool six ways, earning themselves $5 each. Just enough for a bucket of balls.

2-Man Rotation Details

The popularity of weekend events continues to grow! After the largest Greek Scramble that can be remembered (56 players) we follow it a week later with the largest 2-Man Rotation even (60 players).

Here is the tee sheet for the 2020 2-Man Rotation via Golf Genius.

This tournament IS FLIGHTED based on the low-player in the two-some. There will be FOUR flights. The TOP 2 teams in each flight will be paid out.

NEW: In addition to the four gross flights, we will have a single net flight payout as well. Handicaps will use the USGA rules for Scramble, Fourball and Alt-Shot handicap method with strokes being given at correct holes. We will pay out the TOP 2 teams in this flight but no BMGA Cup Points will be award. You can win in BOTH the Gross and Net divisions.

NOTE: There are two groups going off hole #10. They use the SAME format above on the holes indicated.

Greek Scramble Results

What an amazing weekend of weather! The largest Greek Scramble on record, we had 56 players (14 teams) play this weekend.

In first place, the team of Brynteson + Monogue + Hamm + Medina shooting a -6, 138. They will take home $55.00 and 100 Cup Points. With only six holes to go Hamm still needed four drives but beat the pressure and had four straight holes of amazing drives for the win.

Greek Scramble: Tee Times & Teams

Below are the Tee Times and Teams for the Greek Scramble:

Tee Sheet via Golf Genius

We will have tee times from 6:30 AM to 8:30 AM. After the round, bring your scorecards to the clubhouse to turn them in. We will either be on the patio or tables will be setup on the South Side of the building. Each player will get 2 (two) drink tickets for attending the tournament. Results will be posted online and in-person.

Format: Each player tees-off from the member tees from their starting tee. The Team selects the two “best” drives and divides into two 2-man Sub-teams (Sub-team A and Sub-team B). Each 2-man Sub-team completes the hole in scramble format (choosing the best of each pair of shots). This sequence is repeated for each of the 18 holes. A minimum of six tee-shots from each player must be used during the round.

Missing Player: In the event a Team is short a player (only 3 team members), the player whose handicap is closest to the handicap of the missing player will play both his own ball and the ball of the missing player.
