(5/22) Gary Richards wins both the optional KP's! For the first time in my memory, one individual won both of the optional KP's. Gary Richards stuck it close on both par 3's on his way to winning the overall low net title shooting a net 65. Chun Jackson brought home the overall gross crown by carding a one over par 72.
Defending Match Play Champions Dan Summers (gross) and Jim Etheridge (net) get the automatic 1-seeds for the 2013 Match Play championship. The bracket link can be found in Tournaments/Presidents Cup.

(4/15) The results are posted from the Spring Field Day. Joe Zorich carded a 2 over par 73 to claim the SFD title. Zorich had 16 pars and 2 bogies to win by one shot over John Stockman. Eight players finished within three shots of the title.
Gi Chang Song won low net with 64. With the victories, Joe and Gi add their names to the list of Tournament Of Champions qualifiers.

(3/25) Chris Jeppesen and Darrin Fossum were the overall winners of the 6-6-6 tournament. Jeppesen and Fossum won a score card playoff with Fred Wedeberg/Ken Wooten and Chun Jackson/Jay Lee teams.
Chris Baker and Chad Bundy took the net honors.
Slight change to our formats:
After much contemplation, our crack tournament staff has decided to throw a little curve ball (go Mariners) into this years schedule.
We will be having a Tournament of Champions (T.O.C.) instead of a skins final. Every overall winner, gross and net qualifies for this event.
The T.O.C. will be held Sept. 18th.
The current qualifiers through the 6-6-6 are:
There will be an updated list for the qualifiers under the Money List button.
Kudo's to the greens crew for finally trimming the lower branches on a bunch of trees at the Muni. This small change should speed up play.We noticed a large gap between groups finishing the tournament Saturday. 2 or 3 groups added 20 minutes each to pace of the round, that means the first group finished in 4 hrs, 3 groups later, it was a 5 hr round. KEEP UP THE PACE OF PLAY!!
April 4th we have a quarterly meeting set for 7:00 PM at the clubhouse. Putting contest, Spaghetti feed and gripes, can't think of a better way to spend a Thursday evening.
We all know if you hit a ball O.B. it's stroke and distance and we are all more than willing to apply the penalty. However, when it comes to touching a line of your putt, fixing the hole prior to your stroke or taking a liberal drop from G.U.R, we have a some what cavalier approach to the significance of these breaches. In the long run, what difference does it make if I touch my intended line of my putt, I'm going to miss the damn thing anyway!!!
To quote a phrase we made up for one of our former members " Summer Rules and Some Are Not"
It is tournament time. And time to apply ALL the rules of golf to each and every one of our games.
No pics for either event due to weather, maybe get some action shots in the 6-6-6. Speaking of which the 6-6-6 is March 23rd. Sign up sheet is in the Pro Shop, stop by or give them a call.
