Hoffman, Payne Roll at President’s Cup

@Howard-Hoffman, our current BMGA president, overcame a shaky start to fire a 5-under par 67, collecting 13 Stableford points and winning the Member Gross flight in addition to the President’s flight. After bogeys on #1 and #4, Hoffman proceeded to play the balance of his round at 7 under par. Yikes!!! Nice playing, Howie! In the Member Gross flight @Kelly-Gallagher shot a respectable 75 (-2 Stableford points) to finish second. In the President’s flight, Matt (Double Eagle) Doherty shot a nice 82 (net 70), collected 12 Stableford points, and finished second. Matt was visibly upset that he did not overtake Howie’s 13 points, and win the coveted title.

@Matt-Payne, a relative newcomer to the BMGA, was unconscious and fired a 79 (net 61), collected 24 Stableford points, and dominated the Member Net flight. Finishing second in the Member Net flight was @Kyle-Johnsrud, who shot a sleek 87 (net 66) for 16 Stableford points.

In the White Net flight, @Mark-Lange shot a net 69, collected 11 Stableford points and finished first. @Sheldon-Silberman (net 1 on #4) finished second.

REGISTRATION OPEN: 2019 4-Ball Calcutta

Registration is now open for the 2019 4-Ball Calcutta. After experimenting with 2-man teams we are going back to the original 4-man team format, we have also changed the scoring so please refer to the flyer. We have had great participation on all of the tournaments this year, so why should this one be any different. Let’s help bring the Calcutta back to it’s former glory!

NOTE: This is your last chance to earn cup points for the year in the race for the BMGA Cup. It is also your last chance to earn points to get into the BMGA shootout. If you are on the bubble, this is a tournament you won’t want to miss!

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!

WNL Final Standings

Two division races came down to a tight finish.
The team formerly known as CTB (now Jesse’s Barber Shop) overtook Foreplay’s 2 point lead to win the BCC South by 5.5 points.
Meanwhile, coming down to the last cards of the night, Hack Attack eeks out a 2 point division win over Putt 4 Dough in the GVC West Division.

In next week’s playoffs it will be two divisional grudge matches:
–Foreplay (wildcard) takes on Jesse’s Barber Shop (CTB) {BCC South}
–Putt 4 Dough (wildcard) takes on Hack Attack {GVC West}

Sitting at home awaiting the winners are the two #1 seeds:
– Fairway to Heaven (690.5 points and 13-3 record)
– Who’s Your Caddy (684.5 points and a 10-5-1 record)

Week 16 Results

First we are making up Week 3 next week so if you were scheduled to play that would be your tee time. Please coordinate with your teammates to make sure you can fill in a full roster. We have a few tight races so forfeits will not be looked upon well.

Change in division leaders in GVC West with Hack Attack halting the 8 week win streak of Putt 4 Dough with a convincing 48-32 win and taking over first place by 3 points.
Who’s Your Caddy has locked up GVC East by 37 points and the #1 seed overall with 642.5 points –the closest competitor is 20 points back (Hack Attack).  Will they sit their starters next week?
The wild card race has Putt 4 Dough in the lead by 17 over Range Balls.  

What to watch for next week: 

  • GVC Division win decided when Putt 4 Dough takes on the Loopers (last place BCC South) and Hack Attack takes on Bald Man (almost last place BCC South)
  • The loser of the division will probably be the wild card from GVC unless Range Balls comes up big when they play Last Call (last place BCC North) and closes that 17 point deficit.

Bassett Creek Conference is not so contested. Fairway to Heaven has pretty much locked in their first round bye, with their playoff history thru the years they will definitely need it. Foreplay has a 2 point lead going into the final week over CTB. The fight is really all about chits since the winner of the division will get the chits and the loser will get revenge by being the wildcard.

Round 1 of the Playoffs is August 28th and Please look for the signup sheet for free golf that week. Signup with your teammates and play a fun round of golf August 28th. Hopefully we will have the Clipboard out next week on the patio so everyone can signup. We will have a great time closing out the year…
