Carts:

Every week I will post this about carts and fees.

Green fees and cart fees are still being paid by the League Treasurer Chuck Reckers. For those okay with riding 2 in a cart with teammates that is now acceptable and preferred. For those who said they will walk but wish to change to walk front and ride back or ride both sides, you need to let the League Treasurer Chuck Reckers know by Tuesdays 6 p.m. so he can update his records and notify the course on number of carts we will need. Also, if you are having a sub that is different on walk or ride you need to let Chuck know about that. If a player wants to commit to ride the back or both sides Chuck will update his records and collect the cart fees as part of the second installment in late July. Reminder that no changing your mind at the course.

 

Subs:

Subs this past week: Jeff Barnhorst (Team Schumacher), new sub Pete Grady (Team Anderson), Steve Ruehl (Team Breen), Mike Schwarberg (Team Kientz), and Paul Haubner (Team Bachmann). Thanks for being there.

 

Most under/over average (5+/-) (Sandbagger of the Weak):

 

Under by a bunch:

Bill Anderson 5.4 under.

 

Over by a lot:

Dick Flynn 7.3 over (under last week).

Dennis Breen 7.3 over.

Rick McErlane 6.3 over.

Division Standings:

 

A Division: Team Schumacher (#4 Seed) holds a 29.5 point lead over Team Bramlage (#5 Seed) with Team Kiffmeyer 32.5 points out of 1st. Team Anderson brings in 4th and 66 points out of 1st. Could be some big changes here.

 

B Division:  Team Flynn dropped to #2 Seed with Team Halpin 63 points out. Team Buescher remains in 3rd and Team Leirey (top of the upside down list) in 4th and both too far out. My hopes here are that Team Flynn takes a big loss next week or a positive way of saying that is I hope Team Halpin takes a massive win.

 

C Division:  Team Kientz still holds the lead and #3 Seed. Team Zachritz in 2nd place and a big 85 points out of 1st but only 36 points out of seeding. Team Breen in 3rd and 61.5 points out of seeding. Team Harms strongly holds 4th here.

 

D Division:  Team Pfeiffer holds 1st and moved into the #1 Seed as Team Bachmann held 2nd place but dropped to the #6 Seed and is now 64.5 points out of 1st. Team Sue&Sherrill moved up to 3rd place as Team Vaughn drops to 4th and both are too far out of seeding.

 

Seeding:

 

Changes this week to Seeding are Team Pfeiffer jumping to #1 Seed, Team Flynn dropping to #2 Seed, Team Bramlage up to #5 Seed, and Team Bachmann dropping to #6 Seed.

 

Number 1 Seed Team Pfeiffer

Number 2 Seed Team Flynn

Number 3 Seed Team Kientz

Number 4 Seed Team Schumacher

Number 5 Seed Team Bramlage

Number 6 Seed Team Bachmann

 

Position Round 3 (August 26):

 

Divisions were pulled from the hat for front and back nine tee times earlier in the season.

1st on the front nine is B Division, followed by D Division. 1st on the back nine is C Division followed by A Division. Tee times are:

 

August 26 - Front nine:

3:30 & 3:40 B Division 4th place Team Leirey vs 3rd place Team Buescher.

3:50 & 4:00 B Division 2nd place Team Halpin vs 1st place Team Flynn.

4:10 & 4:20 D Division 4th place Team Sue&Sherrill vs 3rd place Team Vaughn.

4:30 & 4:40 D Division 2nd place Team Bachmann vs 1st place Team Pfeiffer.

 

August 26 - Back nine:

3:30 & 3:40 C Division 4th place Team Harms vs 3rd place Team Breen.

3:50 & 4:00 C Division 2nd place Team Zachritz vs 1st place Team Kientz.

4:10 & 4:20 A Division 4th place Team Anderson vs 3rd place Team Kiffmeyer.

4:30 & 4:40 A Division 2nd place Team Bramlage vs 1st place Team Schumacher.

 

Secretary Predictions:

 

        A Division - secretary predicts that Team Schumacher gets 40 points vs Team Bramlage gets 50 points and Defending League Champions Team Kiffmeyer gets 75 points and takes the division lead. This knocks Team Bramlage out of seeding and drops Team Schumacher to #6 Seed.

 

        B Division - secretary predicts Team Halpin takes 78 points over Team Flynn and moves into division lead and knocking Team Flynn out of seeding.

 

        C Division - secretary predicts Team Zachritz pulling in a massive 87 points over Team Kientz to only miss by 1 stroke from taking the lead away from Team Kientz. Team Harms defeats Team Breen and ends any hope of a seeded position.

 

        D Division - secretary predicts Team Pfeiffer vs Team Bachmann to be the biggest slug fest with Team Bachmann (and an ever clear mind) with a 77 point win but falling short of 1st place but keeping a seeded position.

 

o   Who will make the play-offs?

  Secretary predictions on Seeding is Team Pfeiffer #1 Seed, Team Kiffmeyer #2 Seed, Team Halpin #3 Seed, Team Kientz #4 Seed, Team Bachmann #5 Seed, and Team Schumacher #6 Seed.

  Hopefully, my predictions are correct, however if anyone would like to try and pick the seeded teams I have a dozen very experienced golf balls for whomever can guess winners correctly. More than one we will have a drawing for the winner. Send to halpinc@aol.com by August 25.

 

The Almighty Fork:

Mathematically there are 13 teams still in the running for a Seed position so no more Forking until after the position round.

 

Week 12 Team Leirey

Week 14 Team Harms

Week 15 Team Sue&Sherrill & Team Buescher

Week 16 Team Vaughn
