We still have two spots open...first one to say in has a spot. If any of these six can not play Saturday, please let me know ASAP.

Week Seven Results -- Whistling Straits - Irish Course


Top O' the mornin' to you and all that. Yes, it looked as though we were in Ireland on Saturday, even down to the sheep on the course. The luck of the Irish was there for a couple players, but for others, it was a tough day on a great course.

Aside from the cart paths and the hidden green on the Par 3 13th (aptly named Blind Man's Bluff), this is one of the coolest courses in the doubt about it. I think it often gets overlooked due to its more famous neighbor, the Straits Course.

Art Lange survived it best in his second SBGT start, but first finish. His 85 led the 10 players who joined this week. Art did it with consistent play with 7 fairways, 8 GIR, and 8 pars and two-putting seventeen holes. Art nipped Bruce by 2 strokes for the win holding him off as Bruce shot 2 over par on holes 6-12 after a difficult start. Bruce did manage to win the Net Score with his 74 as Art, Karen, and Kory have yet to establish a handicap. Another tour newcomer, Kory Deavers finished in 3rd place with an 88.

Another Lange, this time Karen, won the women's portion of the draw with an impressive 98 which was highlighted by 10 fairways. I wonder if the Lange's are from Ireland the way they played out there.

Here were the results:
1. Art - 85, net n/a (8 pars/37 putts/7 fairways/8 gir/50% sand saves)
2. Bruce - 87, net 74 (1 birdie/5 pars/36 putts/5 fairways/8 gir/17% sand saves)
3. Kory - 88, net n/a (1 birdie/8 pars/36 putts/8 fairways/8 gir/67% sand saves)
4. Tweek - 109, net 75 (3 pars/29 putts/5 fairways/1 gir)
5. Karen - 98, net n/a (1 biride/3 pars/35 putts/10 fairways/3 gir)
6. Bryan - 101, net 79 (2 pars/39 putts/4 fairways/4 gir)
7. Brad - 95, net 82 (4 pars/33 putts/3 fairways/3 gir)
8. Jackie - 120, net 82 (39 putts/7 fairways/1 gir)
9. Kim - 125, net 83 (32 putts/8 fairways)
10. David - 95, net 84 (1 birdie/3 pars/36 putts/3 fairways/5 gir)

Thanks, and see you at Makray on Saturday!

Week Six Results -- Prairie Landing


We finally got the round at Prairie Landing in. After all the back and forth over the survey, free rounds, no free rounds, free rounds again, but only at certain times, $20 off any round, and bad then good then bad, then good weather, we got the round in.

Good for Brad that we did, as he breaks his drought and wins his first event of the season. The waether was nice, but the conditions made the course a bit tougher than normal. The wind was not overwhelming, but it was there. The always tricky greens were running very fast, and I think all the tee boxes were crooked as evidenced by many players inability to hit anything straight off the tee.

Kudos to Kim for her second net win of the year...both of them a net 68! The women's tees were apparently not as crooked as the men's as Kim and Jackie tied for fairways hit with 8. I won the putting title for the day with 33 putts. Jim, Jackie, and Bryan owned the three birdies of the day, and Jim had the only sand save. In his first outing of the season, Greg got his name in the books, leading the day with 5 Greens in Regulation. Again, the overall winner was Brad as he made just one fewer mistake than I did on a rare event won by a score over 89.

Here were the results:
1. Kim - 107, net 68 (2 pars/35 putts/8 fairways/2 gir)
2. Jim S. - 93, net 70 (1 birdie/2 pars/34 putts/3 fairways/3 gir/25% sand saves)
3. Brad - 90, net 78 (4 pars/34 putts/4 fairways/4 gir)
4. David - 91, net 80 (5 pars/33 putts/4 fairways/4 gir)
5. Bryan - 100, net 80 (1 birdie/4 pars/36 putts/7 fairways/4 gir)
6. Greg - 100, net 84 (4 pars/35 putts/7 fairways/5 gir)
7. Jackie - 121, net 86 (1 birdie/1 par/42 putts/8 fairways/4 gir)
8. Tweek - 119, net 87 (36 putts/2 fairways)

Thanks, and see you at the Irish Course on Saturday!
