Tournament Results

Tin Whistle 12.22

Bill Morgan took second with 28 points, while Kim and Ray tied for third.  There were no one-in-ones today

Low Gross/Low Net 11.22
Course:

Date

There was a modest turnout of eleven members on this, the day before Thanksgiving. No doubt, many were preparing for family get-togethers or simply didn't want to brave the brisk morning.  Vester had another strong round taking low-gross honors, with Tobin and Ralph finishing second and third.  Dave topped the winnings board by combining low-net with a skin.  Tom took second place with a skin, and Henry sweetened his third spot also with a skin.

4 Man Scramble 11.22
Course:

Date

Our 4-Man Scramble was played on a beautiful fall morning, and we finished with a nicely constructed putting contest.  In a close finish, the team of Tom, Henry, Paul, and Vester took first place.  Mike, Dave, Rob, and Bob finished one stroke back, with Ralph, Van, Kim, and Jim S finishing third.


In the putting contest, three people tied for first with a score of 10 putts for the 5-hole event. The ties were all broken by the tie-breaker closest to the hole on the first putt on the last hole, which was a 40-foot uphill putt. Vester was closest with a distance of 3’6”. Second was Paul Swain with a putt of 4’ 6”, and third was Dave Nold at 6’10”. Ralph was 4th, and Ludi was 5th place.

Turkey Shoot 11.22
Course:

There was a small turnout for our annual Turkey Shoot. Perhaps the cold morning kept people away?  Dave took Low Gross honors with Kim, Jim S, Ralph, and Bob H hanging in there for payouts.  Richard had a good round taking Low Net with Henry, Jack, Paul, and Mike W sharing in the payouts.  Skins went to Richard, Dave, Kim, and Jim S.

Low Putts/Low Net 11.22

Vester  had a blistering round on a brisk morning of LowNet/Low Putts.  His net  32 took first place over Ray Spano he had his mostly usual on-in-one  and tacked on two skins.  Tom and Ralph shared third place.  Then Tom  had the hot hand taking low putts over Ralph and Bob.

Low Gross Low Net 10.22
Course:

Date

Tom had a breakout round this morning and almost broke the bank.  He carded the only skin and took low gross honors in a tiebreaker over Vester.  Tom also had low net for the day, which signals a great round.  Jim Stowell and Ralph shared third.

5 of Clubs 10.22
Course:

Date

With a warm weekend forecast, the Five of Clubs tournament was played on a very comfortable morning. Unfortunately, the greens were punched and very sandy.  That didn't stop Ray, who posted a net 34 for first place tacking on two of the four skins. Bob Harrison was one stroke back for second, and Mike Whipple took third. There was a three-way tie between Bill M., Charles, and Vester.  Doc and Paul both had skins.

PresCup 2-Man Scramble 9.22
Course:

Date

We enjoyed another two-round team event honoring the  PGA yearly events like Ryder and President's cup.  The pairings seemed to work out well and were very closely matched with only one stroke separating teams in most foursomes.  So good work Jack and Tobin!  Special mention should go out to the cafe to get a lot of food out quickly.  The Titans took a 4-3 advantage over the Jesters in the first round ending up  8 to 6 after the final Scramble round.

PresCup AltShot 9.22
Course:

Date

Well, the results are in!  I just got the final scorecard which made a dramatic change in the results.  From an early results tie, with the new scorecard, the Titans triumphed, tumbling the Jesters to a 4-3 drubbing.

I hope everyone enjoyed the round. It was really fun for our group.  We did feel a different pressure early on in the rounds and always had a different take on each shot but it was great to see everyone supporting the team and enjoying the 'slings and arrows' of golf's turns of fortune.

Alhambra 9.11
Course:
Alhambra GC

Date

The Alhambra course was in good condition  except for the recently sanded greens. Still, it was a beautiful day on  the course.  Kim had a good round beating Jim Stowell by one stroke and  adding two skins. Jim also had two skins.  Van and Chuck shared third  place in the low gross category.  Rob had a strong round taking low net  honors and adding a skin to his take. Tobin had to settle for a second  and added a skin to his take. Bill and Henry split third place.

2 Man Shamble 9.22
Course:

Date

Tom and Paul took first place, beating Ralph and Kim by one stroke.  Bob Harrison and Dave were tied with Herman and Charles for third place. It's always interesting to look at the net scores for individuals. Tom and Charles were -5 par-to-net for the day, helping their teams.

Tin Whistle 9.22
Course:
Altadena

Date

We all played Tin Whistle this week instead  of the fake news put out last week that we would play Red White &  Blue. Mike Whipple must be glad to have just renewed his membership  because he cleared the field by four points and carded two of the four  skins.  The two Bobs (Harrison and Norman) tied for second place. Rob  added a skin, and Bob had an on-in-one. Vester hung in for fourth place,  adding a skin and an on-in-one to this take.

Aces Wild 9.22

San Dimas 8.22
Course:

Date

Our outing at San Dimas was fully attended,  with 12 members teeing off on that very interesting course.  We  welcomed back Jeff Gordon, who's been missing from our lineup.  The  weather was very cooperative, staying mostly in the low 80s most of the  time due to some light cloud cover and a steady on-shore breeze. This is  a beautiful course in a great setting, and every hole offers something  different and challenging and should be put on our regular rotation.  Bill Morgan combined first place in low net with a skin to top the  winnings board. Dave Nold had low gross honors, with Bob Harrison close  behind and adding a skin to his take. Tobin took second in low-net, also  adding a skin.  Rob Norman and Jim Stowell took third in LN and LG,  respectively, each with a skin.

Red White & Blue 8.22
Course:

There was a good turnout this morning for our somewhat compromised Red White & Blue tournament, with many tees grouped for what can only be expected to be eventual maintenance.

Our final group dominated the low-net honors, with Herman taking low net with a skin,  in a tie-breaker over Charles, who also had a skin.  Mike Whipple hung in there for third.   Bob Bucher had one of the skins and an on-in-one as well.

4 Man Scramble 7.22
Course:

Date

The  scramble format is popular because it's fun, lower stress and you  really appreciate your team's play. The team to beat today was Richard,  Paul, Neeraj, and Henry, who led the field by two strokes.   Bob  Boucher, Dave, Mike W, and Bill W were a solid second which left a  three-way tie for third, making everyone a winner today.

Tin Whistle 7.22
Course:
Altadena

Date

Our Tin Whistle game saw Bill Morgan edging out Vester in a tie-breaker.  Vester sweetened his deal with the only on-in-one.  (Maybe we should just call them "Vesters").  Andy Pollard came in third, with Herman bagging fourth place.   Dave and Ray split the skins pool.

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.

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

DeBell 5.22
Course:
DeBell

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
