Lucky Week 13 – The initial round robin is Done!

Fourteen team league… week 13. Everybody’s now played Everybody.

(hey how about fixing a ball mark occasionally while you’re waiting to putt… yours (if you hit the green) and one more would be even better!)

For the next 5 weeks the top 6 teams will play each other once. For all of the remaining teams I’ll put together a schedule of matches based upon close contests from earlier in the season and anything else I find interesting (or not). Hey if you’ve got the itch to play a specific team in these last 5 weeks than do let me know (soon!) and I’ll try to accommodate you.

Next week our closest to the pin will be on that toughest little par 3 in the Catskills… #8. This week Brian Wheaton stuck his tee shot to 31′ 10″ to take home $32. Mike Lor (lone birdie on #1) and Dan O’Neal (lone birdie on #8) split the $48 skins e.g. $24 each

James/Ken played well AND took great advantage of strokes received (winning or halving 7 of 8 holes with strokes received) in taking a commanding 37 point win over last years champs.
Casey/Dustin eke a win over “new” team 13 Ryan/Ivan with Dustin posting a handicap busting 32 net 25. Ryan gets back on track with a 34 net 29 to counter Dustin’s big win.
There wasn’t a lot that Ron/Kenny could do when Mike/Jonathan shoot a combined net 51… Jonathan posts a season best 33 net 23 to add to Mike’s now typical 1 over par 30 net 28… how low can they go???
Lenny played Mitch tough but was edged out by net one stroke… Larry carried the day with a 38 net 28 as the Big Canuck couldn’t recover from the loss of his favorite golf cart Ziggy on the 1st hole…
Brian/Harry posted matching net 31’s but Zach carried the day with a season best 37 net 26 in his straight up head to head match with Harry as Justin/Zach win a close match 55-35
In a competitive (55.5-34.5) match, Skip posted a 36 net 28 while Mike Rockwood posted a 42 net 27. Handicap strokes played a big roll as Skip won the 1st hole but Mike Rockwood won 3 of 4 (and tied the 4th… ) holes that he received strokes on – he also won 4 of the other 5 holes.


In the final match of the week, played Sunday, Jamie got steam-rolled by a red-hot Tony Tanner who not only got 7 strokes from Jamie but saved his best round of the year for the last week of the round robin… a +6 35 net 23! Christopher prevented a complete washout by topping Lou (the Giant Killer) Capello by net 7 strokes to keep Jamie/Chris in the championship mix in 5th place.
