Week 12 Results Sponsored by Jesse’s Barbershop! (Making the World better looking 1 haircut at a time.)

Please don’t forget about Week 1. We will be making up that week on August 26th and that will be our Grand finale Wednesday. What does that mean? No idea yet….. If you were scheduled to play week 1 that will be your tee time for August 26th. The race to the finish is getting really tight in 3 out of the 4 Divisions…

BCC North: Fairway to Heaven has a tiny lead over I like big putts and mid round crisis. This division will definitely go to the last week. Most likely the Wild Card team will come from this division.

BCC South: Bald Man is walking away with it although Foreplay might have a Christmas miracle left in their bag. CTB and The Loopers are finished, but who knows maybe we can have a side bet…

GVC East: Whose your Caddy has a slight lead over 9th green at 9… Range Balls could push thru if they can have a string of strong Wins.

GVC West: Hack Attack has a narrow 6.5 point lead over Putt for Dough. The wild card team is up in the air in this Conference.

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.

8-Man Senior Team Falls to Columbia

With an undermanned team, the Brookview Senior 8-Man team was defeated by Columbia 8-4.  We missed the regular services of  the always reliable Tom Hansen,  Steve Hartmann, and Forrest Nelson.   Unfortunately Charlie Tsatsos also had a last minute work conflict and could not compete.  I am not sure how many matches were close, but here are the final results.

Mark Kraus and Doug Zuck tied their match 1 1/2- 1 1/2, so obviously that match was close.  I heard from a very reliable source that Mike Deede and Jim Sanford unfortunately did not have the usual stellar games, and they fell 0-3.  Then one of the MVP’s of the season, Perry Jacobson, and his partner Steve Houtz, won their match 2 1/2- 1/2.  I don’t think Perry has lost a match in three years (oops!  Maybe recently at Highland National).   In the final group, Steve Merriman was forced to play as a single for a few holes until Gary Ridout filled the emergency opening on hole #4.   Always the loyal competitor, Gary is rumored to have raced by local sheriffs on his way back from Wadena to get there as soon as he could.   Unfortunately, the story did not end well as they were defeated 0-3.  

Thanks to Mark Kraus for captaining yesterday.  Could be a sign of the future.  Although the weird 2020 Covid 19 season is over for the team, 2021 looks solid as we have a lot of good players.

16-Man Team Buzzed at Home

We ran into a buzz saw against Fountain Valley on Sunday. Apparently, a bunch of the big guns from Valleywood decided to leave the club and join Fountain Valley because they were raising their rates (!). We actually played them very tough but came up short and lost 10.5 – 13.5.

Reports on the ground were that they had 5 rounds of 70 or lower! Trent Peterson led the charge with a smooth 66 in the first group…playing the day before the State Am at Edina CC where he would go on to finish THIRD at -9!!! Other notables were John Holmes and Justin Burleson, two guys that have had prominent amateur careers in MN. Have to think these guys should be bumped up to a higher division next year.

Mike Sustad and Kelly Gallagher led the Brookview squad with a rounds of 70 and 71. Great playing guys!

Nice job hanging in there guys. We did a great job to have a chance to beat these studs with the last group coming up 18.

Standings are getting tight with only a few more weeks left. Whose your Caddy takes the lead in the GVC East conference scoring 50 points over Fairway to Heaven. Putt for Dough takes the lead in the GVC West after CTB pulls off a stunner over Hack Attack. CTB had some miracle putts including Joel Longo’s putt on #9 30 foot bender for Birdie and the win.

On the other side of the standings Bald Man Brewery and I Like big putts both lost but still have a commanding lead in their divisions.

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.

Brookview Senior 8-Man Team Defeated at Highland

Well, what can I say.  Tuesday Highland National defeated  our Brookview boys at Highland 8-4.  They simply played better than we did.  In Group #1, Hansen / Nestvold (Yes Nestvold ) won their match 2-1.  Due to his company on break, Tom was able to play.  Then last minute sub Slivken / Merriman were defeated by the score of 2 1/2-1/2.  In their match, old Brookview member and former President Bill Alexander played well for Highland ( I think he should be jailed as a traitor).  In Group #3, Jacobson / Kraus were on their way to victory but were snake bit the final two holes and tied their match 1 1/2- 1 1/2.  In the final match Hartmann / Deede took an early lead but fell 3-0 to a couple of sneaky old veterans.

Next regular season match is Tuesday, July 21st.
