Update: The May 26 tournament is a SHOTGUN start and it will be at 7:30 now. Please make a note of that. Please check in 10 minutes prior to 7:30 and be on your tee box by 7:30. See you then.
I hope everyone enjoyed today's tournament. Every team finished at least at 8 under net par or better so it seems like it worked for you. The team that finished with the lowest score of 25 under par was Jeff Brunton, David Bridgeford, Paul Emery, and Jerry Fallon's team. Every player in the group played well so it was a deserved 1st place prize. 2nd place went to the team of Cesar Lopez, Matt Quinn, Pete Soderburg, and Carey Winborne. 3rd Place went to the team of Cordoba and Eby. Congratulations to the three teams who placed!
Though it was a team event, two individual players stood out and deserve accolades for their performance today. Rick Walker shot a 69, including even par on the back 9 for our low gross round. Jeff Brunton shot an outstanding -7 under net score for our lowest net round of the day. Great job Rick and Jeff!
It was also the final round of the zone qualifier today. We had 12 players sign up for their chance to represent our club in Monterey this year. Right now, we have three players who are eligible. Rick Walker's great round propelled him into the top spot. Randy Lawson and Matt Quinn went -2 and -1 respectively to earn two of the spots. Larry Goodwin will be our fourth player in Monterey. Congratulations guys! For the other 8 players who went for it, you are alternates in case somebody has to drop out. Your truly has gone as an alternate twice. One year, we got all the way to the 7th and 8th alternates before we could field a team. If an alternate is needed, I will be calling you in the order of your name on the final standings.
Thanks to everyone who participated today and especially those who entered the zone qualifier! Our next tournament is May 26 and it is a SHOTGUN start at 7:00 (I'm going to e-mail the course to see if we can start at 7:30 for a shotgun but I can't promise it. Plan on a 7:00 SHOTGUN start unless you hear otherwise from me). It's the Nassau format, which means players can be awarded for best front 9 score, back 9 score, and overall 18 hole score. Conceivably, one player can win all three prizes. Following this tourney, we will have a men's club meeting where we will talk about the ladies and guest invitational and vote on the proposal of increasing entry fees by $1 dollar to help offset the costs of trophies, banquet, and qualifiers. I hope you can all attend.
For Ladies and Guest Day, I will have a sign-up sheet available in the pro shop by Monday, May 14. It's a fun event and the course hooks us up with great food so I hope you can make it!
Now the lecture: Throughout 2018 so far, I've had players check in with me after the time they are supposed to tee off. This is happening almost every tournament. I'm not going to tolerate that anymore. By the rules of golf, you are supposed to be at the tee box by your tee time or you will be assessed a two stroke penalty. That is now going to be enforced. Please check in with me 10 minutes prior to your tee time and be ready to tee off at your tee time. If you prefer a later tee time, just tell me and I will accommodate you.
Also, if you sign up for the tournament but something comes up and you can't make it, I would really appreciate an e-mail, text, or a call letting me know.
Lastly, for those who are going to Yo Che De He this year, I'll need the payment of $110 dollars to me by next tournament. If you need to scratch, let me know soon. I have to let Cache creek know how may players are coming by June 1st. If you still want to sign up or bring a guest, there is time.
All right, I'm done harping. I appreciate all of you in the club and I hope you're enjoying the tournaments. I'll see you in two weeks!
