from Mark Harper Jr., Inter-club Captain
Final Four bound!!
Tanglewood defeated The Preserve at Jordan Lake today to claim a spot in the Final Four next weekend at Pinehurst. One step closer to our goal of winning the whole thing.
We played in very challenging conditions today with it being cold and windy. That didn’t de-rail this team — played very well considering the conditions.
At home, the first match out was won by Stevie Blankenship and BJ Richardson 12-6. Both stay undefeated in interclub so far this year. They also won at home against Lochmere 12-6 proving to to be a formidable duo!
The second match at home was Mark Absher and Chris Blankenship winning 9.5 to 8.5. As a team they only took one bogey all day on number 2. That’s impressive from the blues and in the “tough” weather of the day.
In the first match away at The Preserve, Mark Harper Sr and Charlie Fisher won 9.5 to 8.5 as well. They paired well today, as they didn’t make the same score on any hole.
In the last match, myself and Brian Sainz lost 11-8. We didn’t play our best but fought back after losing the first 4 holes to keep it close.
Thankfully we had a great team. Tanglewood!!!
Bones and I are very grateful for the opportunity to captain this team. The entire association of Tanglewood is the best group of guys I know.
Also, I’m looking forward to serving the TGA in another way this coming year by accepting the position of 2nd Vice President. Hope I serve you fellas well. Thank you for the opportunity.
Last, we will be in the Final Four next weekend playing Long Leaf Golf Course Saturday against the team of Pinehurst Country Club number 7 and 9. We will have 8 players and 2 alternates, plus 1 advice giver. If anyone is interested, please let me know. If I understand it correctly Saturday’s round will be free. And hopefully Sundays when we win Saturday!
