Tournament Results

Club Championship B 6.22

Club Championship A 6.22
Course:
Altadena

Date

Our first round of the Club Championship saw Vester taking charge as he can do so well. He leads the field by four strokes and had one of only two on-in-ones today. His closest competitor Dave qualifies for low-net honors but I'm sure will be gunning for that low-gross spot. Also in the mix are Tobin, Ralph, Herman, and Bill Morgan.

Alhambra 6.22
Course:
Alhambra GC

Date

Dave Nold won low gross honors and tacked on two skins. Chuck Saldumbide settled for second and also with two skins. Ralph came in third with a skin as well.

2 Man Shamble 6.22
Course:

The 2-Man Shamble tournament had a tight finish with Bob Harrison and Dave taking first place in a tie-breaker over Frank and Mike Whipple. Then there was a three way tie for third including  Mike Anderson, Ludi, Don, Ralph, Paul and Vester.

Six Blind Holes 6.22
Course:

Date

At the end of the Six Blind Holes round, numbered balls were drawn by members, who apparently were not all that happy with their selections but that's the luck of the draw.  Holes 6,7 and 9 were eliminated from the scoring.  With that selection, Vester was the clear winner with a net 25, four strokes over second place winner Dave Nold.  Ralph hung in there for third place and Tobin picked up fourth. Vester also had one of four skins and the only on-in-one. Bill Morgan, Charles and Mike Whipple also picked up skins.

Red White & Blue 6.22
Course:
Altadena

Date

The scores for RWB this week suggested the course tested many players but Ludi had a strong enough round to take Low Net honors.  Bill Morgan was one stroke back with Jim Stowell and Chuck tied for third. Jim added one of two skins to his take and Mike Whipple took the other skin.

LGLN 5.22
Course:

Date

Vester ran away from the field taking low-gross by 7 strokes adding two Skins and finishing with an eagle on 9.  Nice going, Vester!  Kim sweetened his second-place finish with a Skin and the only on-in-one of the day and  making that with a birdie.

Jim Stowell had a nice round taking low-net honors and there was a three-way tie for third between Bob Boucher, Richard, and Bill Morgan.

2 Man Best Ball 5.22

DeBell 5.22
Course:
DeBell

Date

On Wednesday some of the more intrepid members played the infamous DeBell with all too predictable results.  Tough putting and lots of opportunities for lost balls make this one of our favorite courses.... right?  Vester took low-gross honors and added two on-in-ones to his take. Jack took low-net and with two skins.  Dave Nold shared in the top winnings with a second in low-gross plus two skins and three on-in-ones.

4 Man Scramble 5.22

Everyone was a winner today with beautiful weather, the course looking pretty good, and a free if somewhat scrambled lunch.  For our scramble game, the top group of Doc, Neeraj, Henry, and a guest/ringer from Eaton Canyon John Sojke finished two strokes ahead of the field. The next two groups were tied for second.

Tin Whistle 5.22
Course:

Date

There was some hope for the return of our driving range as we saw the support poles rising out of the morning fog.  Tobin doesn't seem to need the practice as he had a nice round today, winning the Tin Whistle tournament and adding a skin.  Richard had to settle for a second but sweetened the deal with two skins.  Rob came in third one point back, with Neeraj and Ralph tied for fourth.

LGLN 4.22
Course:

Date

Vester had the hot hand this cool spring morning taking low gross with his 41 and adding one of three skins to his take.  Bob Harrison settled for a second just one stroke back with Don at third while adding a skin.

Scholl Canyon 4.22
Course:

Date

On Tuesday there was a good turnout for the very interesting Scholl Canyon golf course. This was a test of the short game, and, for those who walked up to the 12th hole, a test of endurance. Don edged out Dave in a tie-breaker for low gross with Mike Anderson hanging in there for third. Rob took low net in a tie-breaker over Jon Halvorson who sweetened the deal with 5 skins!  Jack took third and added a skin to his take.

Alhambra 3.22
Course:
Alhambra GC

Date

Our 2-Man Shamble at Alhambra was a first for using a team event for an away game and I think most enjoyed the change in format.

LGLN 2.22
Course:

It was 34° this morning which may be why there was a relatively small turnout for our LGLN tournament. Vester was not deterred by the cold taking LG honors with Dave Nold and Tobin tied for second. Both Dave and Tobin had skins and on-in-ones.  Bill and Doc took a skin each.

Due to scheduling error we  were not able to play on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving.  

4 Man Scramble 11.21
Course:

Date

There was a smallish turnout today playing a 4-Man Scramble (well sometimes 3 Man).  I think we all like team events where it seems everyone gets to contribute to the effort. Doc, Harry, and Neeraj had the hot round today coming in two strokes ahead of the field.  Tobin and Mike King paired with two of our newest members Mike Pavese, and Jon Halvorsen to claim second place.  There was a tie for third place.

DeBell 11.21
Course:
DeBell

Date

On Tuesday, 6 members played at DeBell (DeHell). With so few players we just played for fun, or whatever fun that could be had looking for balls at the side of the fairways, or watching a putt role almost up to a hole, only to fall back to the front of the green.  The course was in very good condition and I think we are all willing to give it another try because it is an interesting and different course.

Turkey Shoot 11.21
Course:

Date

What a beautiful morning especially with the course starting to look so much better!  The top winners, John, Rob, Paul, and Tobin combined being in the top 5 (or so) of Low Net plus a skin for each.  Bob Harrison took low gross with Don, Ralph, Harry Missakian, and Vester hanging in there for top 5 honors.

Tri Golf a Thon 10.21
Course:

Date

The Tri-Golf-A-Thon was a head-scratcher for some but we all got through the day with a fun series of team play (there are no one-in-ones or skins).  With the tees moved up on all the holes the scores were not as good as might be expected especially in team play but Kim and Vester topped the field with Tom and one of our newer members Bob Harrison a close second.  Ralph and Van took third place.

Montebello 10.21
Course:
Montebello

Date

We played a nice round at the interesting Montebello GC. I hope we can play it again before it gets changed next year to a 9 hole course with a Top Golf facility.  The course was not in the best condition with many well hit balls ending up on dirt, then those are the conditions we are so familiar with, but it's a good round of golf.  Bill Morgan found himself again at the top of the winnings taking low net three skins and two on-in-ones (OIO). Ralph took low gross and two OIOs. Jim Nelson was second and two OIOs.

Red White & Blue 10.21
Course:

5 of Clubs 10.21
Course:

Date

When we normally play 5 of clubs, it's interesting to see that most play about as well as usual, but  todays forward  tee's complicate that analysis.  It was fun trying to figure out how to make that shot when you don't have just the right club for it.

Don made the best adjustment coming in 2 under net par with one of four skins.  Harry Missakian and Herman were tied for second one stroke back, and Harry added two on-in-ones to his take. (There were several OIOs today.)  Bill Morgan came in third one stroke back.

Doc took two skins and Jeffrey had a skin and OIO.

Ryder Cup 21 Round 2
Course:
Altadena

Date

A  good time was had by all. And, thanks to Dave for this fine suggestion,  the two-week Ryder Cup brought out more players than we've seen in  recent history, and the event is sure to have a permanent place in our  calendar. Excellent work by Mike and John as team captains and everyone  who worked to make this happen. The results are in, and the Army  triumphed! Kirks space cadets made a run at the end but just couldn't  overcome an early Army lead.

Alhambra 9.21
Course:
Alhambra GC

Date

In the kind of hot morning we expect this time of year, Jim Stowell came out hot as well taking low gross honors adding two on-in-ones and a skin. Jim also had low net for the day and finished the back nine with a 36.  Vester and Ralph were one stroke behind. Ralph had three on-in-ones, while Vester had two and a skin.


Jack had an excelent round with low net honors. Ray was a close second and added two skins.  Van had to settle for third but tacked on two skins and two on-in-ones to finished near the top of the winnings.

Ryder Cup 21 First Round
Course:

Date

What an interesting morning!  I came early to hit the driving range but found it full of golfers tuning their game for the big event. Everyone showed up and we had a good time. It was fun to play with a group matched in  skills, and fun to play with people we don't often see or play with. The team mentality was there in full. We appreciated the good play of our partner when it was needed and appreciated the good play of the other team too.

Andersons Army swarmed over Kirks Crew at 18 to 6.  There were some very close matches and lots of room for a shifting tide next week. Stay tuned!

Tin Whistle 9.21
Course:

There were three on-in-ones including Johns on hole 8 coupled with a one-putt birdie giving him a skin for that double-eagle. Mike Anderson, Bill and Ray also won skins.

LGLN 8.21
Course:

Date

Kim had a great round this morning and his 38 took low gross honors with a skin to top off his winnings. Vester was close behind with a very decent score of 40 and had 3 on in ones!  How do you get three on in ones with only 2 par 3s?   He drove the 7th green!  So  6,7, and 8. Nice going Vester.

Jack took low net honors with Charles hanging in there for second.

Ludi and Paul each had a skin.

2 Man Scramble 8.21
Course:

Date

It  was a strange summer morning at Altadena with cool untypical August  weather.  We welcomed one of our newest members, Mike Whipple, another  long hitting lefty. Rob and Jim made a good enough team to edge out  three other groups in the 2 Man Scramble. Tied for second were Ludi,  Bob, Ralph, Van, Tom and Vester.  Tight finish with some pretty good  scores.

Santa Anita 8.21
Course:
Santa Anita

Date

Club Championship First Round 7.21
Course:

Date

The first round of our Club Championship series has Ralph in a strong position with his opening 42.  The usual bunch is trailing close behind but Vester has to make up a few strokes to get back into the mix.

Ludi and Richard are leading for low-net honors with Mike and Tobin vying for those honors as well.

There were on-in-ones from John and Ralph both on the 6th hole, with Richard and John splitting the skin pool.

Brookside 7.21
Course:
Brookside #2

Date

Brookside was looking pretty good this morning showing the benifits of reduced Rose Bowl activity.  The reworked hole 12 was a relief to all and yielded some good scores. Mike had a very fine round with a 89 taking low-gross honors and two skins. Ray topped the winnings taking low-net and 4 skins!  Bill was in the running taking second in low net, adding three skins and an on-in-one.  Ralph took second in low gross and tacked on an on-in-one.  Richard had to settle for three skins and two on-in-ones.  Rob and Tom would have finished out of the money  but for an on-in-one each.

4-Man Scramble 7.21
Course:

Date

There was a smallish turnout today due to the lack of carts I'm told? Too bad because it was a nice morning for golf and the scramble is a pleasant low stress game. With only three groups today, everyone is a winner.  Tobin, Kim and our two Bills, took first place. Ralph, Jim S., Van and John were one stroke behind for 2nd place followed by Tom, Paul, Ludi and Ray.


Tom added to his winnings by sinking his putt in our putting contest.  Ray came within a foot but close was not good enough.
