Sr. Metro Team Season Wrap

Brookview finished the season with a 4-20 drubbing by Valleywood and finished up in 5th place overall.
@Jim-Sanford (net 74), @Doug-Maday and @Dan-Olson (net 76’s) could only manage 4 points and unfortunately @Randy-Zejdlik had his back go out and I did not get my email checked soon enough to get a sub lined up.

For the season, we played:
– 24 different golfers from Brookview
– 15 golf courses
– 144 offers to play 60 tee times
– Most frequent player: @Sheldon-Silberman (5)
– Five guys played one time
– Four guys offered to play one time and I was unable to get them out.

Some more stats to chew on:

We won a little money for our fifth place finish. So far we have decided to roll it into next year to support the entry fee of a 2nd team. We will gauge the interest before committing to doing so. Please note that if we do this, the teams must remain separate through the year. So Sheldon can only play for one team, not both. If we decide to not use the money for a 2nd team, I will buy better tequila for myself cause you guys all cause me to drink!

Metro Sr. Team delivers massive win.

In a battle for the ages at the newly refreshed Braemar golf course, BMGA member deliver a knock out win 22-4 versus Daytona, which is the high point total for the week.
