Hello and good day to one and all.

The Saturday Scramble results are in and the winners are as follows . . .

Flight A

1st Place Team #7 Matt, Rick, Johnny, John, Brian -12

2nd Place Team #2 Rex, Carl, Charlie, Stu, Frank -9

3rd Place Team #6 Peter, AJ, and Chuck -9

Flight B

1st Place Team #8 Mike, Stan, Jeff, Mike S, Ryan -9

Rick on Team #7 had Closest to the Pin.

The Sunday Scramble concluded its 2019 run with a great turn out of 17 Twosomes.  We tried a  new format for the first time to some frustrating and fun results.  Off the tee we played a WORST DRIVE, where the opposing team determined the ‘worst’ drive and that was the drive that was to be played by the team.  The rest of the hole was played in best ball format.  The strategy changed completely and a lot of thinking was done on the teebox.  A shout out to Stuart Hoff for what I consider a great innovative twist on an often familiar game.  On top of that the tees were all moved completely back and the pins were placed in the most difficult of positions.  Thank you Mike for that.

1st Place Eric Calderon, Allen Everett with 69.  Each of you has $24 in your club credit accounts.

2nd Place Rick Sheetz, Roberto Severino with 71.  Each of you has $14.40 in your club credit accounts.

3rd Place John Harrington, Mark Nelson with 72.  Each of you has $9.60 in your club credit accounts.

Closest to the pin was on #16 going to Tom Lang.  Golf balls are behind the counter with your name on them.

And so concludes the 2019 season of the MGC Summer Two-Person Scramble.  It was a great summer for golf and I thank each of you for coming out and joining us.  I look forward to June when we start up again.  As the weather changes and the season approaches I wish you all the best on the links and off.

 

Hello Everyone.  Apologies to all of you readers out there as I haven’t posted in a few weeks.  I have been out of town a few weekends and it has thrown off my rhythm.  Unfortunately even with out rhythm you can still have the blues.

Scramble Results Weekend of 7.27.19

Hello and good day to each and everyone of you on this fine and marvelous Monday.

I find it easy to say today is so lovely because I have mastered the art of not letting my horrible golfing get in the way of the enjoyment of life.  We will get to the bad and the ugly of my score shortly.  But first the . . .

Saturday Scramble Results

First Place was Chuck, Pete, Robert -14

Second Place was Kevin, Stuart, Jim, Ed and Charlie -10

Third Place was Stu, Frank, Rex, Carl and Charlie -9

Closest to the Pin was Team #4 by Kevin.

 

The Sunday Scramble format was the soon to be notorious 3 CLUB CHALLENGE.

The weather was perfect and the course was mostly dry save a few spots of standing water.  The scores all in all were pretty good unless you were on my team.  Mike was on vacation and without the D.O.G. dropping long bomb drives and draining super long putts the game was, shall we say, tougher.  Kudos to my buddy Dave for filling in.  We may not have shot so great (76) but we had a lot of fun.

1st Place was Charlie Purkiser and Tony Cothran with 65,You each have $31.50 deposited in your club credit accounts.

2nd Place was David Lanham, and Mike Corley with 66,You each have $18.90 deposited in your club credit accounts.

3rd Place was Matt Easterman and Dave Lent 66,You each have $12.60 deposited in your club credit accounts.

Closest to the Pin was Steve Cherry, golf balls are behind the counter with your name on them Steve.

Next weeks format is regular scramble.  Unless we decide to do something else, then we will do that.

 

Hello Again Mainlands Golfers . . .

Flight A

First Place Greg, Al, Mark, Craig, and Ron -10

2nd Place Charlie, Carl, Rex, Frank and Stu -9

3rd Place Charlie, Kevin, Ed, Jim, and Stuart -9

The Stuart and team #2 won closest to the pin.

There are golf balls behind the counter for Stuart, and everyone else has their winnings deposited in their Club Credit accounts.

By Sunday afternoon the course had dried out pretty well save a few spots.  For the first time so far this summer season the winning team was . . .

Mike / Tyson 62

Mike rolled in 5 LONG birdie putts (after I showed him the line of course.)  But as you should know by now, Mike and I do not play for any prize money, simply bragging rights.

1st Place Nicholas Cavell and _________________(unknown golfer) 63 $18 was deposited in Nick’s club credit, the other $18 will be deposited when we find the name of his partner.

2nd Place Mike Corley and Dave Lanham 63 $10.80 was deposited in each of your club credit accounts.

3rd Place Stuart Elder and Dennis Haysley 65 $7.20 was deposited in each of your club credit accounts.

Hello again Mainlands Golfers!

The Saturday Scramble winners are posted below.

Flight A

1st Place Matt, Johnny, Brian, Anthony, and Rick -12

2nd Place Peter,Kim, and Tim -9

3rd Place Jim, Kevin, Ed, and Charlie -9

Closest to the pin was Steve on team #1.

On a tangent I find the closest to the pin prize a bit ridiculous.  Going forward the prize for closest to the pin will be a full dozen golf balls.

The Sunday Scramble was awesome.  If you were there you know what I am talking about.  The weather was blisteringly hot with an extra helping of humidity.  We played in a modified Stableford Format.  3 points for Eagles, 2 Points for Birdies, 1 Point for par, and 0 points for Bogies or higher.

1st Place was Nicholas Cavell and Todd Stevens, with 23 points.  They each have $33 in their club credit accounts.

2nd Place – David MacMarchy, Hub Bartlett with 23 points as well.  They each have $19.80 in their club credit accounts.

3rd Place – John Harrington and Mark Nelson with 23 points.  They each have $13.20 in their club credit accounts.

Closest to the Pin was Rob Neighbor!  Yay Rob.  You have a dozen golf balls waiting for you as well.

Finally I would like to state that due to the popularity of the Sunday Scramble we will only be able to start teams that show up AND PAY before 15 minutes of 4pm.  It is just too difficult to accommodate everyone efficiently unless they are checked in and paid by quarter til four.  If a team shows up at ten minutes to four they will have to follow the scramble and just play plain old regular every day stroke golf.  (This means you Neighbor.)

Good Day to the Drawers of the golf ball and Salutations to those who Slice.  The rest of you we will meet in the middle.

The Saturday Scramble had 4 winners in two flights.

Flight A

1st Place – Frank, Rex, Daniel, Carl, Charlie -11

2nd Place – Chuck, Peter, Robert, Tim, -11

3rd Place – Greg, Al, Craig, Marc, Ron -10

Flight B

1st Place – Matt, Brian, Richard, -9

Closest to the Pin was Dan of team #5.  Dan has golf balls behind the counter and the rest of the winners have money added to their club credit accounts.

The Sunday Scramble had a great turnout with 18 Twosomes.  Unfortunately their was some lightning witnessed by more than a few golfers less than an hour into the round.  Anyone who turned in and left will get a raincheck for an upcoming Sunday Scramble.  The rain/lightning delay lasted about 15 minutes.  The remaining 15 teams did finish and so the scramble continued.  Mike and I started on the back 9 and after triple bogeying #11 we didn’t see any lightning but were seeing stars.  I believe our 69 would have put us in solo place for 8th place.  Cheers to being aggressive off the tee when you shouldn’t.

1st Place – Stewart Elder & Dennis Haysley 63  Each of you has $24 in your club credit accounts.

2nd Place – The Carl Nicks Team 63  Each of you has $14.40 in your club credit accounts

3rd Place – David Lanham & Mike Corley 63  Each of you has $9.60 in your club credit accounts

Closest to the Pin on the 3rd Hole was  . . . Karen Koslowski.  Congratulations Karen, you have golf balls behind the counter for you.

 

The summer season means we often play with the threat of weather.  If you feel nervous about playing with cloud cover, or in rain, or with thunder in the distance, or for any reason please come in and get a raincheck.  No round of golf is worth a tragedy.
