Week 8 Wrapup

#PLAYERS: 28 CTP: Mark Dawson, $23 on hole 3 ACE: $30. WELCOME: Brisk fall weather. I love you. THANKS: To Marty for turning TOPO into a one-time-only par 3 bonanza. The combination of shortened course and leaner groupings (mostly 2 players) allowed us to squeeze one final weeknight round in before dark. A very fun change-of-pace. Also thanks to everyone who took the time to respond to my tourney survey – I appreciate it! CONGRATS: To division winners Tucker Davis, Mark Daw ... more

DEUCE OR DIE!!!!

Monday-only we'll be playing a special par-3 layout at TOTH. All par 4's and 5's will be shortened to be "reachable" from the (temporary, flag-marked) tees. Hole 2 whiners will be temporarily appeased with a return to the original short tee. This effort is largely daylight-imposed but I think it will make for a fun round of golf all the same. See you Monday for our final weeknight round!

Week 7 Wrapup

THANKS: To Marty for some selective tree removal on holes 6, 8, and 9 and for setting up the hole 11 island this week. More on that later. CONGRATS: To division winners Jim Bailey, Marty Vaughn, Pat Pope / Jon Grover (tie), and Katie Jenkins. POTW: Goes to…. ME! I won MPO with the worst score that’s ever won MPO (57)!

Payout Correction!

I just posted the scores and have one correction to make as far as payouts: When I received the final scorecard after the awards had already started I looked them over, noted that none of the scores "cashed" in their division, and moved on. I failed to take into account the added $ each of those players put into the payout pool. Based on this added $, a player in each of those divisions is owed an extra $5. The updated payouts are (before->after): Katie Jenkins (Women) $15-> ... more

Hey - Remember Tag League?

I do. Tonight promises to be the best weather we've had all year so come out and throw some plastic at trees - er... baskets.
START TIME IS 530pm SO PLEASE BE PROMPT!
Tonight we're featuring mixed cards and a hole 11 island green. See you all there,
Jim

PS. After tonight there's only 1 more Monday league before the finale tournament SATURDAY Sept 20. Mark your calendars!

Week 6 Wrapup, Schedule, and Layouts

This is a long one but please take note of several important announcements at the end! #PLAYERS: 28 CTP: Tucker Whittemore-Davis, $16 on hole 9. Tucker insists this is a RHBH hole and maybe he’s right. ACE: $0. It was up to $107 briefly before Matt Skoby fired a skip-ace in on hole 1 to break the piggy bank en route to a stellar round. Awesome. WELCOME: Logan Roberts joined us in the Open division. Due to other conflicts it may have been a one-and-done deal for Logan but he s ... more

Week 5 Wrapup

WELCOME: Same old crew this week but damn is it a nice crew. THANKS: To Marty, Jim, Josh, and Ralph for the hole 2 makeover. Its still a par 3 but a much tougher one. Were there any league deuces on 2 last week? No, Mo, practice rounds don’t count. CONGRATS: To division winners Tucker Whittemore-Davis, Mark Dawson, Billy Welc ... more

THANKS: For the great weather. For once I wasn’t glued to the radar map all afternoon. CONGRATS: To division winners Aaron Monier, Mike Frisina, Meadow Hartwell, and Katie Jenkins. Mo has returned to form in a big way with a 3-week average of 53.7! How he can do that with only ... more

Week 3 Wrapup

#PLAYERS: 31 (new league record!?) CTP: Pete, hole 10. He was loud and proud about doing it with a gstar teebird flick. Nice shot, Pete! ACE: Pot is up to $53. WELCOME: Newest league member Jivan Agoubi. I'm pretty sure this was a name he made up just to give me fits typing/reading but either way we're happy to have him. Bring your friends! THANKS: Big props to Tyler and Mo for the hole 4 layout change this week. Full disclosure - when they described it to me I thoug ... more

Continuous Improvement

We'll have some minor procedural changes for week 3. On the fun-side, "game masters" Tyler and Aaron Mo will be debuting the first of several temporary layout changes to bring some additional variety and challenge to league rounds. Similar to the hole 18 OB we played at last session's finale they'll use some combination of alternate tee/basket locations or OB/mandos to break you from your staid routine! If you have any ideas for things you'd like to try in future ... more

Session 2, Week 1 and POTW

We registered 10 new people last night and had 33 players across 4 divisions!! Every division looks to be balanced and competitive (4-way tie for first in AM1!) so we're off to a great start. Keep coming out and tell your friends- its only going to get better from here. We've got a lot of irons in the fire to add variety, competition, and camaraderie as the season moves on. I promise you will not be disappointed! Help me extend a big welcome to all our new players and a hearty c ... more

Ridiculous front 9 by Tucker! And Keane goes from first to worst in the blink of an eye! Pumped for this session it's going to be very competetive!

Play of the Week

I'll keep it short and sweet - Keane Maloney for shooting a personal best 59 in the most important round of the year to clinch first place in his division. Can't wait for next week!

Final Payouts, Final Thoughts

First lets have a big round of applause for all the volunteers that made the finale a success. Go ahead, I'll wait... I can't hear you! Ok thats better. Jeez, settle down: you look like a crazy person clapping in your cubicle (or truck, operating room, grocery aisle, pro shop, etc) by yourself. Thanks to everyone who brought food, to Ryan for manning the grill, and Tucker for setting up the hole 18 OB gauntlet! Thanks, of course, to Marty for his continued efforts to improve the ... more

Play of the Week!

Moving forward I'll try to highlight something special that came out of each league round. The clear choice this week was Mike Frisina's hot round of 55. In a division when par golf wins the week 9 times out of 10, Mike shot 7 under, only 1 away from undercutting the leaders in the Advanced division! Mike's hole-by-hole score is shown below, including a sweet "Turkey" on 11/12/13. Nice shooting Mike!

123456789
223533543 -> Front = 30

012345678
322232443 -> Back = 25
Total = 55


Your suggestions for future "POTW" candidates welcome - message or email me at [email redacted].

Get your popcorn ready...

Including tonight we have 3 rounds left in the spring tag league session. EVERY division is tight at the top and we should have a great battle to the finish. With 3 sessions left to accrue the season pots now stand at $75 Intermediate, $25 Advanced, and $10 Women. Never known to rest on our laurels, TOTH Tags management has been busy scheming some new additions and wrinkles for the upcoming league finale (July 14). Proposed changes include: *League finale will be DOUBLE POINTS (pending ... more

Ladies

Please forgive the extracurricular post but here's an FYI for the ladies in the league (or friends / significant others of male players). The GMDGC is a great organization that runs a tournament series all summer at some of the finest courses in VT and NH. They have a monthly ladies league you may be interested in: http://www.gmdgc.org/news/ladies-league-center-chains/

Cheers,

Week 5 in the books

Week 5 scores are up (sorry for the delay). Despite commanding performances from Tyler and Meadow its still a tight points race in all divisions as we cross the halfway point of the season. Pete stands as the INT division leader with Mike and Keane nipping at his heels in pursuit of what will be a RICH year-end pot!
Congrats also to Marty for his CTP win and Mark for making a successful leap to Advanced.

Wishing you Dads out there many birdies this weekend-

Schedule Reminder and News

Greetings Hill-Top-Taggers. Just a quick reminder that there is no league round this coming monday (Memorial day). That doesn't mean you can't enjoy the course on your own time or even challenge other tag-holders to a round (winner keeps lowest tag). I've been really pleased with the growing turnout at league. We welcomed 4 new faces this week to bolster our Women's (Carrie, Melissa) and Advanced (Aaron, Alan) divisions in addition to our booming Intermediate div. Keep ... more
