April 16, 2014 - Midweek Group - Individual

 
Midweek Group Chill'in
Spring has sprung! 23 members were treated to a beautiful day on our golf course. By tournament day, April 16th, nine or ten days had elapsed since the greens were aerated and sanded so conditions were pretty good. Good enough, in fact, for 11 of the 23 players to score in the mid to high 60's, net.

Eleven men in the A Group were led by Greg Fletcher (75, net 65). There were 4 tied for second low net at 66: Dahl, Kipp, Haack and Coombs. Three of these were awarded prizes based on a card match of holes 10-12: Myron Dahl, 2nd place (84/66), Sam Kipp, 3rd (76/66) and Gary Haack, 4th (84/66). The card match between 3rd and 4th place went all the way to the 18th hole before a determination could be made, a first in my experience in the last 4 years. Congratulations to you all.

The men’s B Group (8 players) was competitive too. There was a 4-way tie for first place at net 68: Lowe, R. McKenna, Hart and Thomas. Garry Lowe (89/68) was determined to be the 1st low net by virtue of the same tie-breaker. Ron McKenna (98/68) was 2nd and Will Hart (92/68) took 3rd place.

For the four Ladies in the competition, Kuniko Takeuchi was low net at 71, and Jean Chong came in 2nd at net 74.

In the Closest to the Pin competition, Greg Fletcher and Will Hart were closest of the two men’s groups at #8 while at #17, Dave Springer and Glen Kinion were closest for the men and Marie Hart was the class of the women.

In the optional Net Skins game, 15 participants scored only 3 skins: Ron McKenna’s 2 at #10, Garry Lowe’s 2 at #14 and Jean Chong’s net ace at #17. Good shooting, all of you. By the way, if there had been a gross skins match between the same participants, there would have been four: Two by Eric Edgar at #4 and #15, Hart at #8 and Lowe again at #14.

Thanks to all of you for coming out. Our next tournament is scheduled for May 21st, first tee at 8:30 AM.

April 5, 2014 - Weekend Group - Individual

 
The Weekenders
The Weekend Group was provided both great weather and course conditions.  One wcould say it as a prefect spring day.  The was an Individual Tournament and the Matchplay Championship (MPC) Qualifier.

Shawn Breakey fired up a new 65 to win the tournament and to place first in the Matchplay Championship (MPC) seating position.  The 2012 MPC Bryan Springer was also on fire as Bryan posted a smooth net 67 and a second place finish.  Steve Ackley also shot a net 67 but lost to a card push, so he is seated in 3rd position.  Return club member Eric Edgar has been playing in both the Midweek and Weekend tournaments and finished in 4th place.  Last years MPC, Greg Leuterio finished with a quiet new 76 and is seated in the 13th position.

Keep an eye out for future MPC post results as matches are played over the next couple months.

1st:  Shawn Breakey - 65

Midweek Tournament Director Position Available 2015

 
Midweek TC Bob Thomas
Midweek Tournament Director Position Available

If any of you BCGC “Midweek-ers” have ever thought, “Gee, I think I’d like to run one of these golf tournaments myself,” now is the time. My four years as Tournament Chair are up after this year’s Christmas party, and the Club will need to appoint or elect a new one. Before the call goes out to the entire membership, it would be great to have a volunteer or two from among the Midweek faithful. A rotation of Tournament Directors every year or two is a good way to keep the Club and its members fresh and lively. It is also OK for 2 people to share the Chair duties.

Simply put, the Tournament Chair is responsible for the planning and execution of 10 tournaments in a year. The season runs from February through November including the Club Championship in October, a 36 hole tournament held on successive Wednesdays. Each Chairperson has their own style and preferences and is free to plan the tournaments as they wish. The tournaments can be run with or without computers. It is up to your personal preference. The only requirement other than tournament planning and execution is attendance the board meetings and handing out annual awards, chiefly the Players of the Year and Club Champions, at the annual Christmas party. Those of you interested in this vital position in our Club, please contact me for more info or to answer any questions you may have.

The Tournament Chair position does definitely have its benefits, please contact me for more info on this, too.  Don’t be shy. If you are tempted, but not sure, give me a call and we can discuss your questions, or even work together setting up and running one of the remaining tournaments this year. Of course if you know you want to do this just let me know. We can work it out. The term is for one year, or more, at your discretion.

Let me know if you are interested,

Bob Thomas
Midweek Tournament Chair
