IRS Wednesday Golf League Newsletter

Week 11 - July 7, 2021

 

Get well wishes to Mike Breen.  Mike suffered a collapse lung last week.  Doctors have him inflated and he will be getting surgery to fix the problem and may be out for the next 5 to 6 weeks.  Hurry and get well, you are missed on the course.

 

In Mike Breen’s absence Lee Crouch will be acting team captain of Team Breen.

 

Congratulations go to Kevin Bachmann shooting a 2 under par 33 on the front nine from the white tees.

 

Treasurer Chuck Reckers reports that there are still some regulars that are outstanding on second half League payments.  Second half payment is $136.  Pouches will be in the clubhouse to put payments in.  Any questions on this can be directed to Chuck.

 

Teams are getting better with completing the recap sheets.  There were still some recaps with errors or missing information.  Again, most of the errors were on which holes to give handicap.  Reminder that if white tee is giving strokes to yellow tee then use the gold handicap holes, if yellow tee giving to yellow tee then use the gold handicap holes, if yellow tee is giving to white tee then use the black handicap holes, and if white tee is giving to white tee then use the black handicap holes.  Good news was there were no math errors this week. 

 

Subs this week were:  Don Bazsika (for Team Bachmann); Mike Schwarberg (for Team Schumacher); Jeff Witt (for Team Buescher); Steve Ruehl (for Team Breen); Dave Vincent (for Team Breen); new sub Brian Ferguson (for Team Breen).   Thanks for being there.

 

Wow goes to Jim Hill for his awesome shitty shot on #14.  His game was definitely in the shit house. And he had a ball to prove it.  This ball can be viewed in the briefcase.

 

Wednesday, July 14, is position round.  Divisions were drawn from a hat for which division will be 1st off the front and back, then which division will be next off the front and back.  Thanks go to Mr. Jim Bramlage for pulling the divisions out.

 

First off the front (3:36 p.m.) will be C Division (1st vs 2nd) Team Bachmann vs Team Vaughn.

Second off the front (3:54 p.m.) will be C Division (3rd vs 4th) Team Kiffmeyer vs Team Buescher.

Third off the front (4:12 p.m.) will be A Division (1st vs 2nd) Team Anderson vs Team Kientz.

Fourth off the front (4:30 p.m.) will be A Division (3rd vs 4th) Team Flynn vs Team Pfeiffer.

 

First off the back (3:36 p.m.) will be B Division (1st vs 2nd) Team Zachritz vs Team Leirey.

Second off the back (3:54 p.m.) will be B Division (3rd vs 4th) Team Bramlage vs Team Schumacher.

Third off the back (4:12 p.m.) will be D Division (1st vs 2nd) Team Halpin vs Team Harms.

Fourth off the back (4:30 p.m.) will be D Division (3rd vs 4th) Team Hill vs Team Breen.

 

Secretary’s prediction on winning position round teams are:

A Division: Team Kientz defeats Team Anderson.

                   Team Pfeiffer with a big win over Team Flynn.

B Division:  Team Zachritz barely wins over Team Leirey.

                   Team Bramlage overwhelmingly wins over Team Schumacher.

C Division:   Team Vaughn barely wins over Team Bachmann.

                   Team Buescher crushes Team Kiffmeyer.

D Division:  Team Halpin (I am partial on this) defeats Team Harms.

                   Team Breen with a big win over Team Hill.

 

The League Secretary has a dozen top name, well experienced golf balls for whoever can guess the winning position round teams (if more than one person then name will be drawn).  Get your predictions to Charlie Halpin before noon on July 14.
