Week #1

We had 8 people show up to Estabrook this week in the 90+ degree temperatures.

I know Estabrook might be a bit of a drive for some people and I appreciate the effort to make it to a league that is far away. I am hopeful that we can get better attendance but if 8 is all we get the whole season I am ok with that. I just thoroughly enjoy playing against people on different courses. I enjoy playing Valley View every week trying to always beat my personal bests, but I really enjoy playing different courses, throwing different shots, and learning from those who play other courses better than myself.

Here is the recap . . . we now have an $8 Ace Pool for week 2.

In Open Casey Connors shot the hot round on the night (-7) to win back some of his cash.

In Intermediate I had an up and down kindof night with my (-6). I was more impressed with Greg Klein's resolve to fight back after some early struggles to birdie the same amount of holes I did to take second place with his (-2) and the last of the funny money.

In Recreational Dan Bertzyk played very well and shot (-3) on the week while newcomer Troy Windorff shot (-2) for the last of the funny money.

Next week we will be back at Estabrook and will begin between 6:15-6:30. If the weather is decent and there are a lot of casual players and a lot of DOLLS players . . . we will need to send some groups out earlier to make sure everyone has a fair shot to finish in the light . . . so please try to be there by 6:00 so I can appropriately put people on cards and get some started in front and behind the DOLLS league. Part of my agreement with the DOLLS is to help provide them with a buffer without impeding their ability to run their league so bear with me as we figure out exactly how to handle that next week.
