2021 Club Championship

From Mark Harper Jr., 1st VP

We have a new Club Champion this year, after nearly claiming the title last year Troy Blamer shot a very impressive 69 from the Gold Tees to come from behind and win this years Club Championship. The course was set up long and hard, testing the abilities of every part of someone’s game. Troy was 4 shots better than the next lowest score of the day, Won the tournament by 5 after trailing by one on the first day. Troy’s total for 2 days was 144. Kenny Flynn and John Nieters tied for 2nd with 149, John winning the back 9 scorecard playoff. 4th place was Mark Nieters with 151. 5th place was Eli Kennedy with 151 as well losing the scorecard playoff.

The re-flight division was won by Mark Absher with a total of 157.

Todd Brown successfully defended his title and is the 2021 Senior Club Champion. The foursome of Todd, Greg Howard, Phill Bell, and Steve Wessels were all tied for the overall lead after 14. Todd played the closing stretch 1 under to shoot 71 for the day. Making birdie on 16 and pars on 17 and 18. Those 3 holes determined the championship as they should! Gregor finished in 2nd with a total of 151, Phil Bell finished 3rd with a total of 152.

Mens B division, flight 1 was won by Jim Williams with a 81 on the Championship Course to come from 5 back after day 1. Brade Rockey won first gross and Andrew Packard 2nd Gross.

Mens B division, flight 2 was won by Michael Gilmore. For 1st and 2nd Net we had a math error, originally thinking Chad Carter won it was determined last night after going through the scorecards that Dan Mureness actually won 1st net. Since this was our error, Chad can keep his gift card and Daniel I have the extra gift card for you. Next time you see and officer you can grab it. Sorry for the confusion.

Senior B division was won by Brian Nason, 2nd gross was Rick Taylor. 1st net was Charlie Fisher, 2nd net was Mark Debusk, and 3rd net was Gene Cox.

Super Senior Champion is Jeryl Johnson with a 74 the first day and a 71 on the Championship course. Hugh Quinn finished 4 back of Jeryl and won 2nd Gross. 1st net was won by G. Edenfield.

Super Senior B division was won by Bob Cornish. 2nd Gross was Paul Meyer. 1st net was Larry Wise and 2nd net was Chip Baker.

Congratulations to all the winners this weekend! We had 2 beautiful days for golf.

I would like give a special thanks to Jim Williams for helping with the scoring on Saturday.

Hugh Quinn helped on Sunday and was kind enough to load all the results on this spreadsheet.

Also Rob Heflin and Glenn Levine helped with the scoring on Sunday.

With out that help it makes for a much longer day for our officers. We really appreciate the help.

Also thanks to Steve Livingston for the cold beer and refreshments! Mrs. Mureness did a fantastic job on Sunday as well with the beverage cart!

Daniel make sure she knows we greatly appreciate her help!

Up next: The FAMOUS (or INFAMOUS) Hatfield vs McCoy tournament!!

2021 Senior Inter-Club Playoffs

from Mark Robson, Senior Inter-club Captain

TGA Golfers:

I hate to report this but the TGA Senior Interclub season came to a screeching halt yesterday in the second round of the playoffs.

We lost our 2nd round playoff match against our crosstown rivals, Forsyth Country Club, in a closer than it sounds 42-38 match.

Tanglewood was down by 1 point with 1 hole to go in the final match of the day (at Tanglewood). We needed to win the hole to send the match into a playoff. In fact, the team at Forsyth was told we had won and to get ready for a playoff. Moments later, we were told that was a mistake, Forsyth had won, and the match was over.

Turns out one of the Forsyth players hit a career shot from the fairway bunker on 18 that somehow managed to stay on the front of the green instead of rolling 30 yards down the fairway and made his 2-putt for a net birdie. End of story, end of season.

We spotted FCC 26 strokes in the match, so we knew we had to play flawless golf to win. Both teams played well and the match could have gone either way, but we came up a little short. Hats off to Forsyth for securing the win and for their excellent sportsmanship.

I want to give a big shout out to Todd Brown and Patrick Hynes for their stellar play. They spotted FCC 14 strokes and won their match at Forsyth 11.5 to 8.5 with a dazzling best-ball score of 64.

Please congratulate our team for a great match:
Greg Howard and Jim Williams
Charlie Fisher and Hendrik Weichelt
Todd Brown and Patrick Hynes
Rodie Marovich and Mark Robson

Also, please congratulate all the guys who played this year and represented Tanglewood so well.

In addition to the previously mentioned players:
