IRS Wednesday Golf League Newsletter

August 6, 2014

 

This was another week of some very good golf.  Congratulations go to Larry Bunkelman getting an Eagle on hole #6 and shooting a 38.  Good shooting Larry.   Some of the other good rounds, all on the back nine, were Larry Oliver shooting 35, Ray Vaughn with a 36, and Jay Ackerman with a 38. 

Team Kientz brought a can of Whoop-Ass for Team C.Halpin this week.  Team C.Halpin somehow lost the can on the course but didn’t need it after all.  I was able to locate the can after play and will bring it next week should anyone need a good can of Whoop-Ass, however I may use it on Team Zachritz.  Also some talk around the clubhouse has it that several teams will be wearing purple shirts next week and will declare it Purple Shirt day (I guess to confuse Team Anderson).   So for all who want, wear your purple shirts next week.  I think I am color blind so I will wear my regular purple shirt, or is that grey and blue.

Division leaders again remained the same this week but with some changes to the wild card positions and leads tightening up.  Team Zachritz still holds the lead in A Division with Team C.Halpin closing in on them and Team Donlin not too far behind.  Team Kiffmeyer took a big win and stayed in the lead in B Division with Team Schumacher still not too far behind.  Team Bramlage kept their lead in C Division with Team Bunkelman and Team Flynn closing in.  Team Anderson (purple shirts again) took another nice win to maintain their place as 1st in the league with Team Leirey and Team Harms fading.  Wild card positions changed as Team C.Halpin took a big win to move into 6th seed, half point away from 5th seed Team Leirey.  With two weeks left there could be some heated competition for all divisions and seeds.

 

Current Leaders:

A Division – Team Zachritz (3rd seed)

B Division – Team Kiffmeyer (4th seed)

C Division – Team Bramlage (2nd seed)

D Division – Team Anderson (1st seed)

 

Current Wildcards – Team Leirey (5th seed) & Team C.Halpin (6th seed)  

 

Status of the Fork:  The Fork has been put away for now, however it may come out again next week.  Good luck to all.

 

Summary of Teams Forked:  Team Schumacher (week 8 should have been week 1), Team Patmann (week 10), Team Kientz (week 12), Team Breen (week 13), Team Freeman (week 14), Team Kiffmeyer (week 14), and Team Pfeiffer (week 14). 

 

There were 4 subs this week.  Subs were Jeff Witt, Dave Vincent, Melody Oswalt, and Will Freeman.  Thanks for being there.

 

We had one no-show this week.    If you have troubles locating a sub get in contact with me and I can get you names and numbers to call.  Also, let your subs know who to contact in the league.

 

Here are some little quotes that I received via e-mail:

 

The Importance of walking:

Walking can add minutes to your life.
This enables you at 85 years old to spend an additional 5 months in a nursing home at $4,000 per month.

 

I like long walks, especially when they are taken by people who annoy me.

 

The advantage of exercising every day is so when you die, they'll say,
'Well, he looks good doesn't he.'

 

We all get heavier as we get older, because there's a lot more information in our heads.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

 

Every time I start thinking too much about how I look,
I just find a pub with a Happy Hour.
And by the time I leave, I look just fine.

 

And some other bits of information:

 

In golf, where did the term 'Caddie' come from?

 

When Mary Queen of Scots went to France as a young girl, Louis, King of France, learned that she loved the Scots game 'golf.'  He had the first course outside of Scotland built for her enjoyment.  To make sure she was properly chaperoned (and guarded) while she played, Louis hired cadets from a military school to accompany her.  Mary liked this a lot and when returned to Scotland (not a very good idea in the long run), she took the practice with her. In French, the word cadet is pronounced 'ca-day' and the Scots changed it into caddie.

 

Now don’t you feel smarter.’?

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. $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 please bring markers in.
