Alternate Tees

I posted a question on facebook about this format and I would like your feedback. Please visit and vote!

As for this weeks recap . . .

In Open we had a tie at the top (slightly off of the normal winner scores) with Joel Kamoske and Dave Olson tying for the win at (-10). Joel went on to win the CTP playoff. TJ Webber, Scott Slauson, and Bob Bawden all tied with (-9) to take the last of the cash.

In Intermediate we had Chris Daskam with a really solid round (-8) to take down the division, while Shaun Kirchner and Aaron Zittnan (-5) had respectable rounds (given the circumstances) to take the rest of the funny money.

In Recreational we had Greg Weber (-4) have a solid round on a course I feel honestly played 3-4 throws easier. Second place goes to Nick Williams only 1 throw back but overall Greg and Nick are tied for the win. More important than the weekly win seemed to be the points totals. Greg knew the stats better than I did because he realized when he won the round tonight over Nick that he was going to tie him up in the point standings. Nice work Greg . . . maybe this is your season. Keep in mind in Matchplay ANYTHING can happen.

In Juniors . . . Ethan Weber (+22) continues to show his diligence by coming each week. Can anyone hook me up with someone locally.

The ACEPOOL was hit by me for a grand total of $16 from this week. On #5 I threw a Mako right straight at the basket with a slight anhyzer to hold the line and it went straight in and dropped to the basket. Then Chris Daskam proceeded to step up and also make a good bid for the Ace pool. He came up just short of having to split the small $16 ace pool. Either way this format was a lot of fun to watch and throw with a mix of longer holes coupled with some short ace runs and modified "Upshots".

Please let me know what you think.

I meant to say I feel like this course plays 3-4 throws harder not easier.

Loved the alternates! For the match play, how will that work? If, lets say, there are 4 open players that meet the criteria, would Week 11 be like #1 vs. #4 and #2 vs #3 and then Week 12 would be a championship between the winners?

It will depend on how many are in each flight . . . If we get 8 people who qualify there will possibly be 2 matches on each night with 1 v 8 2 v 7 3 v 6 4 v 5 with the winners playing the other winners and the losers playing the other losers. It will be just like the NCAA bracket . . . but if we onl ... more

For those not making the bracket . . . I have come up with a handicap system that will allow anyone to compete against anyone by throws being added as a handicap. It will be an interesting experiment that might even turn into a full handicap league or even a full handicap match play league. You win your match, you get paid!

Nice! Thanks for the explanation
