2019 Five-Club Memorial

The Five Club Memorial Tournament proved once again that five clubs may be all we need to play this crazy game! At least for those guys who won their flight!

Speaking of which, here are the winners and the clubs they used:

Flight A-Sr A:
Greg Howard shot 73 gross to take first place. His clubs were 3W, 6, 8, Gap and Putter.

Brian Sainz shot 70 net to take first place. His clubs were D, 5H, 7, Gap and Putter.

Flight B:
Charlie Fisher shot 79 gross to take first place. His clubs were 3W, 4H, 6, PW and Putter.

Jim Williams shot 72 net to take first place. His clubs were 3W, 5, 8, PW and Putter.

Flight Sr B:
Mark Harper Sr. shot 79 gross to take first place. His clubs were 3W, 6, 8, Gap and Putter.

Mark DeBusk shot 65 net to take first place.

Flight Super Sr:
Tom Birrittieri shot 77 gross to take first place. His clubs were D, 4, 8, Gap and Putter.

Paul Meyer shot 67 net to take first place. His clubs were D, 4H, 7, PW and Putter.

Maybe some of this information will help those of us who didn’t win select better clubs next year! (Or better swings!)

One player, Dave Edenfield, opted not to use a putter. Interesting!

Contest Winners were David Phillips for greenie on #3, Larry Fine for CTP on 8, Larry Wise for CTP on #12 and Brian Sainz for greenie on #17.

The weather was great as were the greens. Thanks to Jim and Brian for handling the scoring!

2019 Regular Inter-club Update #2

Our Tanglewood Interclub team continued to play solidly for the year with a resounding 43-29 home victory against Willow Creek last Saturday. We have been good hosts to our guests for all the matches, but this team set a record for fastest trunk-slam, tire-squealing exit from our parking lot! We didn’t mind much as it left more celebratory beverages for us.

Charlie Fisher and Mark Harper Sr. are in a dog fight for season MVP. Both remain undefeated with only two matches left to complete. Charlie paired with BJ Richardson to trounce their opponents 12 to 6. Mark Sr. and Terry Payne won convincingly 10.5 to 7.5. Gregor Howard and Stevie Blankenship made the turn all square in their match. They proceeded to roast their opponents on the back and win the match 11.5 to 6.5. Mark Nieters and Kenny Flynn brought up the rear and could only manage a halve – 9 to 9. Bones is making a strong case for LVP (Least Valuable Player) with a stellar record of 0-1-2!

Our record is now 3 – 1 with all of our home matches completed. Our remaining ones are July 6th at Maple Chase and July 20th at Willow Creek. We are looking to have a few new players on the rosters for these in order to get some experience as we prepare for the playoffs, so keep an eye on your email. We are currently in first place in our grouping and have completed the most matches. This puts us in great shape as other teams are scrambling to reschedule ones that were rained out.
