Calcutta Tournament Info

Team Pairings

Team List. The below is the final team list. Handicaps have been locked in.

The above guide has your locked in individual handicaps. Remember, we will take 85% of your handicap and that will be applied individual handicap.

Auction & Horse Race

The Auction will occur at Brookview, on the upper-deck at 7:00 PM on Wednesday, September 23rd.  The timing should work so those who are playing in the playoffs will be able to attend.  A few notes about this:– Max capacity on the deck is 36 people.  Therefore, when we reach capacity, we will ask teams to have only ONE PERSON on the deck so we can remain at capacity numbers.– There are LOTS of teams.  28 of them.  Should have been 26 but I screwed up, so now there are 28 – and I apologize in advance for the last nine holes – it’s going to be slow!  That means the draft MUST BE FAST paced.  We love people hanging out and having fun.  If you are being loud and disruptive during the draft, we will ask you to head down to the patio and continue your conversation.  That also means you should come prepared with the plan.

During the auction we will also be taking Horse Bet information as well.

Skins

We will be having a skins game this weekend.  There will be two pots, the first 18 holes and the last 9 holes.  Cost is $10 for Gross / Net or you can pay $20 and get into both skins pools.  If for some reason there are NO skins in the final 9 holes, that money will be moved to the first 18 hole skins pot.

To register for skins use this form: https://forms.gle/KG4YYWhHLkXzaxNw6

Tee Sheets & Format

Reminder, the tournament is on SUNDAY, September 27th.

Tee sheets are now available for both rounds here: https://www.golfgenius.com/pages/6726657575745537623

If I did it correctly, you will play with different people in the first 18 vs the last 9 holes.  The tee times are two shot-gun starts at 8:00 AM and 1:30 PM.  Most groups are threesomes and the goal is to get around the course quickly.  As part of the tournament, you will receive 2 drink tickets and a meal ticket.  We MUST start the second nine by 1:30 PM so we do not goof up the public tee sheet.

The first 18 holes you will NOT play with your partner.  It is a best-ball and a single score between the two players will count towards your final score.  The last 9 holes is Both Balls will count towards the final score.  All players will use 85% of their USGA Handicap.

Sifuentes & McClernan named 2-Man Match Play Champions

The two man championship was played on Sunday August 30 on a top ten weather day between the team of Dan Grubb/Brian Beitlich (both 8 handicaps) and Ramiro Sifuentes/Matt McClernan (10&16 handicaps).  

The BMGA sent along it’s cub reporter who wrote back:’

The first hole was solidly won by Brian who two putted for par.  The second hole was halved with pars but on the third hole, Dan made birdie for the win.   The Dan/Brian team made par on #4 for a 3 up lead.  The teams halved #5 and on number #6 Ramiro made birdie for the win.  The seventh hole was won with Matt making net par for the win.  Dan/Brian were up 1 going into the 8th which was halved and so was the 9th. 

On number 10 every player made bogey but Matt was getting a shot so his net par made the match tied.   Dan/Brian came back with a par on #11 for the win and then Dan made his second birdie on #12 for a 2 up lead.   On #13 Ramiro made his birdie putt (second for the day) for the win.   And followed that up with a par on #14 for the win and making the match a tie going into #15.   Brian made a birdie on #15 to have his team go up 1 headed into #16.   But with Ramiro getting a shot and making par on 16, the match went back to a tie.  On 17 with a middle right pin position, Dan hit his tee shot to the far left of the green but then drained his 45 footer for his third birdie of the day.  More importantly, his team was going into 18 one up.   Only Ramiro had a decent tee shot to the green on 18 but pulled his approach in the weeds behind the green.  Both Dan and Brian made bogey and it was all up to Matt to extend the match.  He had a 13 foot, net par, uphill putt to extend the match.  

Bam!   He made it to extend the match.  Extra holes!   The teams decided to play #10 and Matt hit his approach 15 feet above the hole.   He then drained the downhill putt for a natural birdie and Team Ramiro Sifuentes/Matt Mcclernan were declared the champions.   It was a great and friendly match.  Both teams played well.   

Hansen comes from behind to win big

Starting Sunday two strokes behind, Tom Hansen found his swing and his laser focused irons to shoot a 71 on the second day to finish five strokes better than first round leader Perry Jacobson. 3rd Place went to Forest Nelson, 4th place to Steve Hartmann and 5th Place to Steven Houtz.

2-Man Scramble Results

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.

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.
