2019 Regular Inter-club Final Playoff Update

from Mark Harper Jr., Inter-club Captain

As many of you know, we suffered a tough loss on Saturday. The wind was blowing 20-30mph all day long, cold and blistery conditions. We were getting shots in every match and thought if we could just grind out pars we could get the win.

However, the Pinehurst team had another strategy — they made a bunch of birdies and left us begging for the warmth of the indoors.

Our team fought hard but just came up a little short.

It was a great year for Tanglewood. The guys had a blast this weekend on and off the course, the Carolinas Golf Association/ Long Leaf Golf Club treated us very well.

I wish we could have had a few more guys down to enjoy the weekend but very thankful for the guys we had, who made it very memorable.

I know this wasn’t the result we were looking for but we will be back next year with more knowledge and experience for the situation. Thank you to each and everyone who competed for Tanglewood this year, the guys who stepped up and played made my job a lot easier.

Also thanks for the support of the guys who didn’t get to play in a match this year but were cheering us on. Here is a list of the guys who played this year, and deserve a pat on the back the next time you see them around the club.

2019 Tournament of Champions Results

from Hugh Quinn, 1st VP

We finally had our Tough Day weather yesterday, November 16, for the Tournament of Champions – cold and windy! Just missed it by a week.

Highlights of the day include wins by Jeremy Ray for gross with 71 and Larry Wise for net with 65! Scores will be posted by committee.

The other major highlight was the Hole-In-One by Dave Edenfield on #7! Check out photo. And with 34 players in the final field, it was a costly day for Dave. But at least his Georgia Bulldogs pulled out a win vs. Auburn later in the day!

Thanks to Joe Brooks for coming in to handling scoring duties even though he did not play.

This was our final TGA Tournament for 2019. Thanks to everyone who played in the events and thanks to the many TGA members who helped make the events successful in many different ways. And thanks to the TLGA Ladies who help us get started at all of our events.

It’s been a long time since Easy Day in February and now there is a short break before Easy Day in February, 2020. We’ll have our Annual Meeting and dinner on Tuesday, February 4 in the Clubhouse Ballroom More detail in mid-January.

While we have winter weather for the next few months, don’t let that deter you from teeing it up. Courses are less crowded, conditions are very good and you’ll keep your game in shape for the 2020 season!
