Nice going!

 

Played ours this weekend as well. Course was not in good shape. Ended up winning by 3 with 77-77. Was a struggle for everyone. 74 was the low round of the weekend. A couple greens might not return.

Way to grind it out man! Sometimes that's what it takes to win.

Two champs so far this season. Nice job guys. Congrats Under and Custom!

Thanks man! Although custom won the whole thing and I only won the first flight in mine. The championship flight was all college golfers, a former D1/ mini tour player and 1 regular joe. The regular joe didn't stand a chance. Everyone in the final group shot well under par for the tournament. 71/70- 4th, 71/69-3rd, 68/71-2nd, and 71/67- 1st. The final group was 3 college players and the former D1/mini tour guy. All which are way + handicaps. 

I think if their had been an overall, I would have come in 5th or 6th for the weekend.

That's still a win... you are the Champion of your Flight. That's all that matters. Just because a guy doesn't win the Championship Flight doesn't mean he's not a champ. You beat everyone you were competing against. The guy in the 8th flight is a champ too.

Congratulations again.

I played in my club championship the last 2 weekends, the 2nd flight.  I was in 3rd after the first 2 rounds but finished 5th after 3 rounds.  The last nine holes I had 4 triple bogeys, just one of those things, 1 putt leading to 3 more on 3 holes. Some times I can talk myself into being to tentative on slick greens.  It was another great experience to play for the club championship. :)

Looking forward to mine this year. It will be the first at this club as last year's it was right around the national am which I qualified for. Our course has a ton of good players so competition will be good. Not looking at net this year as the cap is +2.6 but gross will be a fun battle.

Sometimes you do. It was a grind. It was hot course was poor but still a good ending. Even better was my wife finishing 3rd in the women's in her first ever competitive event. I was very happy for her and she enjoyed the event as well.

Congrats to all my fellow spies who competed in their respective championship! and good luck to those with on coming up.

 

 

Post-Mortem report: A comedy of errors

 

After finishing Saturday, I had somewhat of a chance to win the Net, which would've been nice. But poor decision making seems to have hindered me once again!

Word to the wise, don't go to a cookout and stay up until 1 in the morning when you have an 830 tee time. Don't do this when you have to leave the city to do it. Tossed and turned all night and I showed up late (before my tee time) so no warm up other than the few exercises from the parking lot. So shot a resulting +13 on the front 9 and a +6 on the back 9 and miss out on the net- obviously the gross, which was won with a -1. All throughout Sunday my right elbow was killing me, piling on the misery.

 

Had been struggling with what I thought was just golfers elbow, and striking irons very poorly. Turns out i have a small tear in my pronator teres. Which would explain why on Sunday every wood/ long iron was killing me. Might have to miss the next club championship at the end of August.

Well my second club championship is this weekend. I dunno if the college kids are playing or not but one of the former mini tour guys is playing a fourball elsewhere so that gives me a better shot. I haven't played this course hardly at all this year so I'm not expecting much. Good luck to anyone else playing this weekend!

We had our Senior Club Championship last weekend, 36 holes of stroke play.  I shot 75-73, which was 3 strokes behind the low gross, but with my 6 handicap good enough to win the Net Championship by 3.

Our 36 hole stroke play is August 20th. Top 15 qualify for the match play bracket, defending champ is automatically in. Match play starts August 21st (rounds of 16 & 8), September 3rd (round of 4) with the championship on September 5th (36 holes).

 

Not sure if I'll even qualify but I'm gonna give it hell. Worst case scenario I'll end up in the first flight of the flight club championship again.

I never had the pleasure. I chose baseball in college over golf. Of course I barely played golf in high school so it made sense to. Only ended up with a couple JUCO offers anyway. I bet those were fun times.

I was supposed to wrestle in college. Ended up blowing out my knee in senior year of high school. Took up golf Junior year and was able to get a scholarship for golf. 

 

But yes they were the best of times.

This makes me sad. A few weeks ago was the club championship in NJ I loved. 18 hole stroke play qualifier, top 7 and last years champ get seeds into the match play. First round is Friday, 36 Saturday and 18 Sunday. 

 

In Arizona they are in fall, but the courses allow you to WRITE IN YOUR OWN HANDICAP. I saw that and have never played in one. I hated that rule when I saw it and I hate it more every day. I rather play in the charity games around here when I'm invited from someone in sales.
