We had a strong turnout yesterday for our first truly nice day of golf in a long time. Some improved scores came with the improved weather and conditions. Andy Clark cracked 70 yesterday, shooting a 69 with a couple birdies. Chris Beckham continued his hot play as he shot the low net round for the second consecutive week with an impressive 55. Matt Quinn and Sean Carmichael had their best rounds of the year as well. Quinn shot a net 56 while Sean scored a net 58 with three birdies on the back 9!
The four players who will represent our team in Monterey in just a couple short weeks are Matt Quinn, Steve Van Norman, Rick Walker, and Todd Weatherly (Note: Steve declined his spot so his spot was offered to an alternate player. Alternates were decided in order of where they finished. Chris Carmichael was offered first but he was unable to make it, so Sean Carmichael is our 2nd alternate and he accepted. Sean, Rick and Matt along with Randy Lawson came in 3rd last year. With Todd, it should be a very strong team)
We had several other players go below their handicap yesterday. For those who wanted to do better, with the eclectic format, you can! In Round 2 of the eclectic, you can improve your score from round 1. For example, if you scored an 8 on a hole yesterday and you recover an get a par on the same hole in round 2, then the snowman goes away and only the par counts. Round 2 will take place on March 30 with tee times starting at 7:30.
I also want to welcome two new members yesterday. Mike Mattos joined our club in January but waited for better weather to come out and play so yesterday was his first tournament. Welcome Mike! I hope you enjoyed yourself and will keep coming out. John Jordan joined the club earlier this week and played yesterday. He earned himself a closest to the pin on Hole 3. Not a bad first tournament! Welcome Mike and John! Please keep coming out and joining us!
Renovations at Indian Creek are nearly done and it looks like the new pro shop is about to go in so next tournament, I'll likely be in the old pro shop to check you in for tournaments. If not, I'll be in the restaurant to check you in. Clubhouse and restaurant look a lot better with the renovations!
Happy St. Patrick's Day! See you all in 2 weeks.
