IRS Wednesday Golf League Newsletter

Week 5 – May 25, 2016

Tee times for the June 1st position round are:

Front nine: 

3:39 & 3:48 – Division A 1st place Team Schumacher vs. Division A 2nd place Team Flynn

3:57 & 4:06 - Division A 3rd place Team Leirey vs. Division A 4th place Team Donlin

4:15 & 4:24 - Division B 1st place Team Halpin vs. Division B 2nd place Team Kiffmeyer

4:33 & 4:42 - Division B 3rd place Team Harms vs. Division B 4th place Team Buescher

Back nine:

3:39 & 3:48 - Division C 1st place Kientz vs. Division C 2nd place Team Zachritz

3:57 & 4:06 - Division C 3rd place Team Freeman vs. Division C 4th place Team Bramlage

4:15 & 4:24 - Division D 1st place Team Patmann vs. Division D 2nd place Team Breen

4:33 & 4:42 - Division D 3rd place Team Anderson vs. Division D 4th place Team Pfeiffer

My forecast for the position round:

A Division - Team Schumacher being crushed badly by Team Flynn, Team Leirey splitting with Team Donlin.

B Division – Team Halpin crushing Team Kiffmeyer, Team Harms barely beating Team Buescher.

C Division – Team Kientz falling to Team Zachritz, Team Freeman crushing Team Bramlage.

D Division – Team Patmann squeaking out a win vs. Team Breen, Team Anderson falling to Team Pfeiffer.

This week we had 9 subs:  Diana Buelow (for Team Flynn), Terry Buelow (for Team Leirey), Melody Oswalt (for Team Leirey), Chet Wiggins (for Team Zachritz), Jeff Witt (for Team Buescher), Don Bazsika (for Team Buescher), Izzy Jewell (for Team Kiffmeyer), Greg Arkle (for Team Harms) and Shari Anderson (for Team Harms).

There was one no-show this week due to family emergency.

Defending Champs Team Schumacher and wanna-be champs Team Kientz are still on a hot streak and seem to be unbeatable.  We will have to see what happens on position round next week. Okay, I wasn’t going to Fork anyone until after position round but after receiving my Father’s Day gift early (Team Halpin beat up Team Anderson pretty badly) I will officially Fork Team Anderson, as there seems to be no hope for them (must have been those shirts).  Team Buescher finally pulled out a win, using two subs and a vacant player, and saved themselves from the Fork.    

Good rounds this week:  Front 9 – Jim Bramlage – 37, Tom Schumacher – 38, Chet Wiggins – 38, Jim Grassinger – 39, Jim Westcott – 39, Ray Vaughn – 39; Back 9 – Jeff Witt – 41 and Farlon Smith – 41.

Reminder to everyone about Skins/Greenies/Long Putt, please inform your subs that if they wish to play the games they need to write their name on the games sheet and pay for what games they are playing.

Another reminder to play ready golf and keep things moving on the course.  Back nine this week took 3+ hours and course management is not happy about that.  Remember there is a league after us and they like to finish before dark.

Chuckle for the week:

Charlie Halpin really made his putts this week, really he did, I saw it myself.

Erich Kientz is the unofficial league photographer officially, maybe, should be, will be, is.

Skins—Greenies—Long Putt

Most of the regulars and subs in the league know about Skins, Greenies, and Long Putt.  For those that do not, each week there will be a sheet and a box on one of the tables in the clubhouse.  The sheet will have the names of all the regulars and blank lines at the bottom for subs to write in their names.  $5.00 entry fee for all games ($3.00 entry fee for Skins; $1.00 entry fee for Greenies and $1.00 entry fee for Long Putt).  Place a check mark for each category for which you are participating.  If the Briefcase is not out notate on your scorecard your intent to play and pay when you complete your match.  First teams out please take the markers, last teams in please bring markers in.
