Mistwood is now under new management, and from what I understand, back in tip-top shape. It is a cool layout and another SBGT value at around $50. Let me know ASAP if you would like to join us this week.

Week Eighteen Results -- Oak Grove

Another course and golfer made their debuts on the SBGT this past Saturday on an absolutely perfect day for golf.

Oak Grove is a very nice course, and can be a bit mean as well. It is nice to play through the hills of Northern Illinois...something we don't get to do much here in Chicago. The greens were very fast and rolled smooth. The fairways were in excellent condition. So, how was it mean you ask...wetlands, wetlands, wetlands. There were places to lose a ball on almost every hole, especially on the Back nine. Still, for only $55 a bargain for sure. It will not likely return to the tour however as all six golfers drove almost two hours for the pleasure.

I managed the win by only taking one penalty shot on my second swing of the day. Brad held the lead for most of the round until he took a triple bogey on the 16th hole after blowing a great drive on the previous hole and allowing me to tie. I held on despite Brad's nice birdie on the final hole. My 88 was lowlighted by terrible putting as the quick breaking greens had me stymied all day long. In the second group, Kim was able to overcome her frustration to win the Net with a net 72. Welcome as well to Angelique who debted with a consistent 124 on the most difficult women's course the tour has ever played.

Here were the results:

David: 88, net 74 (1 birdie/4 pars/38 putts/6 fairways/6 gir/67% sand saves)
Kim: 115, net 72 (1 par/39 putts/4 fairways/2 gir)
Tweek: 105, net 74 (3 pars/34 putts/5 fairways/3 gir/100% sand saves)
Brad: 89, net 76 (1 birdie/4 pars/31 putts/5 fairways/4 gir)
Bryan: 96, net 79 (1 birdie/2 pars/39 putts/2 fairways/5 gir)
Angelique: 124, net n/a (1 par/46 putts/1 fairway/3 gir)

See you all on Saturday at the return to Mistwood!

Week Seventeen Results -- Prairie Bluff

This week, five golfers made it out to THE BEST VALUE ON TOUR...Prairie Bluff.

Bryan was the story this week with his third victory of the season, and second at Prairie Bluff. Despite sitting alone in fourth place after the front nine, Bry not only held it together, but turned it on with birdies at 13 and 16 on his way to a terrific 3-over 39 on the back nine to secure the two stroke victory. The Net 68 that Bry shot was easily enough for the three stroke Net victory over Tweek. Tweek was in great shape after his front nine 43, one stroke ahead of the pack, but quickly crashed back to Earth on the 12th hole with a 10 that set the remainder of his round into a tailspin.

Here were the results:

Bryan: 84, net 68 (2 birdies/5 pars/32 putts/4 fairways/5 gir)
Tweek: 99, net 71 (5 pars/33 putts/6 fairways/3 gir)
Brad: 86, net 74 (1 birdie/7 pars/31 putts/5 fairways/5 gir)
Kim: 113, net 74 (1 par/36 putts/6 fairways/2 gir)
David: 90, net 78 (6 pars/35 putts/4 fairways/7 gir/25% sand saves)

Hope to see you all next week at Oak Grove!

Week Seventeen Tee Times at Prairie Bluff

10:54 - Brad, David

11:02 - Kim, Bryan, Tweek

See you there.

Week Sixteen Results -- Harborside

WOW, not a good week.

Even our winner, Bruce would suggest that he didn't bring his A-game to Harborside this week. Shot of the day had to go to Bruce with his 200+ yard Baffler from the fairway bunker on #9 onto the green to set up an amazing birdie. That shot actually turned out to be the turning point that allowed Bruce to knock off Brad who had been leading almost all day long. Bry and I fought badly for the title of 2nd flight winner. I managed the one stroke "victory" for 3rd, though if you peek at the Net score, you will see how bad I actually did play.

Here were the results:

Bruce: 87, net 75 (1 birdie/8 pars/36 putts/8 fairways/9 gir/67% sand saves)
Brad: 88, net 77 (1 birdie/5 pars/33 putts/4 fairways/5 gir/50% sand saves)
Bryan: 101, net 84 (1 birdie/3 pars/30 putts/4 fairways/3 gir)
David: 100, net 88 (4 pars/32 putts/5 fairways/3 gir/33% sand saves)
