IRS Wednesday Golf League Newsletter

Week 3 - May 12, 2021

A lot of you were asking about Tim Feldman.  The following is a note from Tim:  “Hi Charlie, I wanted to thank you, Chuck and the league for the get well card.  All the cards, emails, prayers and notes I have received has helped me and my family through this crazy time.  I feel like I'm getting a bit stronger every day and plan to see everyone at the course in a couple of weeks.  I have always appreciated the friendship of our league members, maybe more so now.  Thanks everyone, keep your head down.”  

Back at the course subbing this week was Mary Jo Leirey.  Really good to see you back.

Treasurer Chuck Reckers reports that there are 62 members current with their first payment.  Chuck thanks all those who paid for the entire season.   Credits for the rain-out will be applied to the 2nd payment or credit given at end of the season.

The League Secretary thanks all the teams for getting their score cards turned in.  Also, a big thanks for keeping the Skins/Greenies/Long Putt funds correct.  Since we are not doing the recap sheets at the course, please include team name on the score cards along with players last names (too many first names are the same).  Then if you have any notes or comments there is a note pad in the briefcase to write them down on.  My memory is not that good anymore.

Subs this week were:  Dave Engleman (for Team Anderson); Mike Schwarberg (for Team Schumacher); Mary Jo Leirey (for Team Pfeiffer); Steve Ruehl (for Team Pfeiffer); Vinnie Castrigano (for Team Buescher); and Mark Finnegan (for Team Harms).  Thanks for being there.

Heard at the Clubhouse:  Seems Jay Ackerman almost had a hole-in-one on #13.  His ball stopped on the edge of the hole, barely hanging over the edge.  Must have been a grain of sand keeping it from falling in.

League President Input/Output:  ???missed print deadline???

Sandbagger of the Weak (5 or more over average)(see Article IV of the League Rules):

Lori Johnson – 12.4 over                                         Tom Marsh – 10.8 over

Patrick Buescher – 10.4 over                                   Melody Oswalt – 8.8 over average       

Mike Breen – 8.8 over                                             Jeff Elsbernd – 7.4 over

Jim Hill – 6.8 over                                                   Tom Nonno – 6.7 over

Gene Pfeiffer – 6.2 over                                          Dennis Breen – 6.2 over

Mike Schwarberg – 6.0 over average                      Jake Job-Rivera – 5.4 over average

Tim Andrew – 5.4 over                                            Clyde Barnes – 5.2 over average

Ron Michael – 5.2 over                                           Bill Zachritz – 5.0 over average

 

Seems ¼ of the league needs remedial training.  No one 5 or more under average, with only 8 coming in a little under average and 15 players were establishing average.
