Score Posting Reminder

1 - All Men's Club Members Thursday scores are to be posted by the handicap chairperson. Either turn your card into the proshop or put it in the scorecard box in the computer room. If you play from the yellow tees, make sure you clearly indicate that on the card.

2 - All scorecards should have first and last legible names on the scorecards. If the names are not legible, the scores will not be posted.

3 - All scorecards are to be added and clearly indicate the final score. Scorekeepers should also indicate any score adjusting.

4 - All Classic and Challenge matches MUST be posted. The cards must be turned in to the scorecard box in the computer room. Be sure to indicate on the card that the score is either a CLASSIC or CHALLENGE match. Also, be sure to post all CLASSIC and CHALLENGE matches as HOME TOURNAMENT scores.

5 - If you don't know how to post a score for match play (Classic and Challenge matches), be sure to contact either the pro or the handicap chairperson. They should be able to explain how to handle "gimmies" and "pick-ups".

Randy Grover Cards Ace

Congratulations to Randy Grover for his hole-in-one on #14 on August 27, 2015!

The hole was up front, but he wasn't able to see the ball go in the hole from the tee, so he got a nice surprise when he reached the green.

So far, he has the only hole-in-one in a Men's Club event in either 2014 or 2015. Unless someone else adds another this season, Randy will pocket the entire $1,200 pot!

Przybyla Wins "Eric Slam" in Club Championship

Eric Przyblya won the Club Championship shortly after also winning the Senior Club Championship, earning him the prestigious honor some are calling the "Eric Slam".

Eric slept fitfully on a first day lead, then held on through blustery, autumn-like conditions to capture the win, and the trophy, in the Championship Flight. Travis Lester finished two strokes back to take second place, and Jeff Olson and Shawn Walsh finished another two strokes back to tie for third.

Other winners in the gusty two-to-three club wind were Jay Griep in the First Flight, Jeff Rak and Scott Billehus (tie) in the Second Flight, Jim Stjern in the Third Flight, Rick Guzik in the Fourth Flight and Larry Kitt in the Fifth Flight.

Brinker Claims Putting Championship

Brian Brinker carded a solid even par 90 to claim this year's Putting Championship honors. Pat Sharpe was nipping at his heels and claimed second place with a 91. Bill Lester took third with a 93.

Their prize winnings plus the player's pool made for an impressive payout in addition to their well-earned bragging rights.

Thanks to Larry and his staff for setting up another fun and challenging putting course.

Reminders About Scorecards and Posting Scores

1 - Be sure to TOTAL all score cards and include any adjustments. This is needed for all Thursday and Tournament cards.

2 - Be sure to have the DATE written on the cards. Cards without dates may not be posted.

3 - Be sure to include FIRST and LAST names on all cards.

4 - Both CHALLENGE MATCH scores and CLASSIC MATCH scores are to be posted and posted as (T) tournament scores. Score cards are to be placed in the score card box located in the pro shop. Be sure to write CHALLENGE MATCH or CLASSIC MATCH on the card to distinguish it from a regular round. If you don't know how to record "gimmies" or when someone drops out of a hole, either go to the MGA web site or ask one of the handicap committee members (Tony SImon, Dan Cowan, Pat Murray (chair), or one of the pros).
