Fore!


As usual, I'm singing the praises of a Carmichael for their performance in a tournament. But this time, it's Sean Carmichael who shot a 73 today to win first place in the 2nd flight. Sean had the overall low net score today (57). Great round Sean!

Congratulations are in order to Eric Thatcher and Chris Graham, who claimed 1st and 2nd place respectively in the first flight. It came down to the final 6 hole tiebreaker which Eric claimed by a third of a stroke. Sean Carmichael won 1st place in the 2nd flight with Randy Lawson winning 2nd place. In our 3rd flight, Bill Chambers won 1st place and Dave Talbot won 2nd place by virtue of a back 9 hole tiebreaker. Congratulations to all the winners! You'll receive your trophy at our annual awards banquet in November.

 
(Note: For those not familiar, ties in trophy tournaments are broken by comparing scorecards. The first tiebreaker is the best net back 9, followed by net back 6, net back 3, and then last hole).


I also want to welcome new members Pat Maguire and John Costa, who played in their first tournaments today as official members. I also want to welcome Brian Tisdale, who played in his second tournament today as a member. Thanks for joining us and I hope you continue to come out and play with us on Saturdays!

Our next tournament is on May 7th with tee times starting at 7:00. The format is called Cha-Cha-Cha. What is it, you ask? Well, I had to look it up too. It means on the first hole, you single best net score will count, on the 2nd hole, your two best net scores will count, on the third hole, three net scores will count. I will prepare score cards for each team and your handicaps will be used. Confused? Don't worry. Everyone will get to play their own ball and we will be playing putts, closest to the pin, and skins and I will be happy to explain the scorecard when we meet on May 7th. This tournament is dedicated to the memory of Bill Eaton, may he rest in peace. Were Bill with us today, I'm certain he would say "Damn you, Quinn! Where do you come up with these stupid bullshit tournaments?" Bill was not one to withhold his opinions, so naturally I would try to find the most aggravating format as possible just to hear his reaction. Seriously, I have played this format before and it's a lot of fun so I hope many of you can play in two weeks!

Matt
