Week Ten Results -- Pine Meadow

This past Saturday, seven players made it out to the punishing Pine Meadow course in Mundelein. It was hot and odd combination...and one that sapped the energy of anyone walking the course. There were some very impressive shots hit, and some nice rounds played, though the back nine took its toll on a few.

I basically held it together the best, and walked away with my third victory of the year, bringing some respectability to the winning score with an 83, the lowest tour round of this season. Jackie played an outstanding round and carded a 105 which gave her the net victory with 69. As for the rest, this was the first time all season that nobody shot higher than a net 78, so pretty good play all around, though I think Bruce might argue with that.

Good to see the tour return of Pat Flanagan who shot a 99, net 73 on his first tour round since Blackwolf Run in May 2005. Also, it was nice to have another tour newbie, Mike Morse, join us for the day. Hopefully Mike will find his way back to the tour after losing 11 golf balls on isn't always that expensive to play with this group, Mike. Finally, kudos to Bry for holding it together and finishing strong after giving up the lead in this round with a disappointing 10 and 9 on holes 13 and 14. Bry was looking at a career best round without those holes as he shot a tidy 75 on the other 16.

Shots of the day were a chip in birdie for Pat on #6, a 60-foot bridie putt for Bry on #5, and my 230 yard 3-iron over the lake on #3 to 10 feet, then holing the putt for par after hitting my tee shot in the drink.

Here were the results:

David: 83, net 73 (1 birdie/6 pars/32 putts/4 fairways/5 gir/33% sand saves)
Jackie: 105, net 69 (2 pars/35 putts/4 fairways/1 gir)
Bryan: 94, net 73 (1 birdie/6 pars/38 putts/2 fairways/8 gir)
Pat: 99, net 73 (1 birdie/3 pars/41 putts/5 fairways/5 gir)
Kim: 116, net 74 (1 par/45 putts/5 fairways/2 gir)
Bruce: 90, net 78 (6 pars/35 putts/7 fairways/7 gir)
Mike: 110, net n/a (4 pars/37 putts/3 fairways/4 gir)

Thanks, and see you on SUNDAY!
