TGA Players Championship

Fall is almost here and that means that the TGA Players Championship – our year end Points event – is almost here!! The points have been totaled through the recently completed Club Championships (available now on the Tournament Results page) and there are only two events left to earn points if you are not already in the top 30.

There are currently 32 players tied with 20 points or more. Your leaders are Charlie Fisher and Larry Wise, who have earned 44 points so far. When you look at the list below, you will see a good mix of low, mid and high handicappers.

Last year, Jerry Visintine gained the last spot with a second place finish in Tough Day, so every event and every point matters!

To add extra relevance to the upcoming Hatfield and McCoy match, we will award 10 points to each member of the winning team, and only 5 points for the losers. That could mean the difference between making the year end event or not.

If you are not aware of how points are awarded, we assign points based on your finish within each event. Points are awarded based on the following:

1st place – 10 points
2nd place – 7 points
3rd place – 5 points
4th place – 2 points
5th place or worse – 1 point

Steak or Hamburgers???

We are just a little over four weeks away from the annual grudge match between the “mean and nasty” ole Hatfields and the “sandbagging polecat” McCoys.

We will have the social and pairing party at Walnut Hall starting at 6:00 pm on Wednesday October 19th with the matches to follow on October 22nd and 23rd.

Mark your calendars and make plans to make this annual battle. The deadline to sign up is October 14th so  get your name on the list today. Everyone who plays seems to enjoy the match and eating steak (winning team) so don’t miss out. For all of the new members, just sign up and we will place you on one of the teams. Look forward to seeing everyone October 19th at the social !!!
