Weds Men’s League Week 2

Perhaps Spring has sprung; seems like Summer just jumped right in with a stretch of no rain and temperatures in the 80s. Hope this pattern holds up – especially the part where it doesn’t rain on Wednesday afternoons. (ooops jinxed it)

Hey Substitutes… if you get a message requesting your services can you return the call in all cases (rejections as well as confirmations)???

Had great participation in the near pin/ skins game … and a few surprises too. After chiding Lenny for hitting near pin in week 1 but coming in empty handed lo and behold he did it again – except this time he ponied up his skins money… and will take home $70 for his $7 wager. Nice return on investment and I hope he’ll play skins for the rest of the season with house money. Next week we’ll play on #6 – maybe we’ll score our first hole in one of the season! Further congratulations go to newcomer John Zummo who to this point has earned his 18 handicap but still managed to reel in a skin by having the only birdie on the 6th holeGood Job John! His 1/4 of the $57 skins pot pays him $14.25. Other skins went to Daniel Eignor (par on the 1st), Lenny Millen (nice week Lenny – par on #2), and Mitch Hull (birdie on #9 after an extended search in the left rough)

Oh how the mighty have fallen…After a stellar week 1 Jamie Wilson and Christopher Stevens plunged like Icarus three places to fourth place after their Sunday match against Robert Skala and Fred (the candidate) Wedding. No… not President, or even Town Supervisor… I’m talking about “Sandbagger of the Year” candidate Fred Wedding who posted a personal best 38 net 23 that may end up as low net round for the year. Hope all of that sand in your bag doesn’t weigh you down while you’re carrying, Fred. You might have to take a pushcart from here on out. Jamie and Chris didn’t help their own cause by shooting net 41 and 39 respectively – but don’t count out the perennial front runners yet.

“Mr 32 – Mike Lor got bested when defending champ Daniel Eignor posted a 35 net 27 to take a commanding 19-8 decision over Mike. Sub Tim Maxim stepped in for Gary Hessberger but couldn’t keep up when Jonathan Crane too posted a net 29 giving the team a decisive 56-34 decision
Last hole jitters cost team Litaker/Steinbuch who held tough for 8 holes against a tough Dustin / Casey team (who collectively finished +3 over the last three holes). Though next week it will be Casey / Dustin after Casey posted a 35 net 29 to flip-flop the A-B player for the third week in a row.
Jamie / Chris picked the wrong week to post big numbers against Robert Skala / Fred Wedding. Rob held his own against Jamie and Fred shot a personal best 38 net 23 to double up the opposition in a 60-30 lopsided decision.
Perennial contenders Mitch and Larry Hull leap into first place with a super steady round against Ron and newcomer John Zummo. Ron/John hung in tough against the Hulls with Ron posting a 44 net 30 against steady Mitch’ 34 net 29 and John kept it close until the final 2 holes against Larry only losing by net 3 strokes. All was not lost on Ron/John as John scored his first skin of the season with a birdie 2 on the 6th hole!
Welcome back to Lou’s 2019 partner Tony Tanner who greeted opponent Brian Wheaton with a 38 net 27 for his first round back in competition. Lou kept Harry in his sights throughout the round until the final three holes giving Harry a 15.5 – 11.5 decision. Overall the match went to Tony/Lou 59.5 – 30.5
Dan O’ and super sub Bill Reed struggled with the dandelion infested rough all day in dropping a 61-29 decision to Lenny (Mr. Near Pin / Skins) / Derrick (though the scorecard shows that it was a closer match then the score indicates). The dry and warm weather should slow the roughs growth and steady mowing should take care of the dandelion stems (though clover efflorescence is close at hand) … I think Dan is just starting to get warmed up so watch out!
In our closest match of the week, Justin and Zach edged Skip and Bill 51.5 – 38.5 as all four players were within 3 strokes of each other.
