AND THE WINNERS WERE . ..
BUENAVENTURA G.C. - 07/07/2022: It was a great day for Marilou Miller.
Marilou Miller
Ms. 'Ace' Miller
She won Low Net and Partners, tied for Low Putts, notched a solo birdie award and pocketed $55 to top the leaderboard. Craig Fehrman amassed $52 as the runner-up in Porter Low Gross along with a double dose of the Birdie Booty. The Porter Low Gross winner was Tony Giapapas who picked up $47 by adding 2nd Low Net, a tie for Low Putts, and a 1/2 birdie share. Brian Oblak shared Tony's tweeter, tied for Low Putts, and was Super Low Gross runner-up, all worth $19. Ron Troncatty posted the Low Round of the Day, a slick 75, to win the Super Low Gross and $6, while Dawn Sacco and Bob Stone were paired up in Partners 2nd Place to earn $4 apiece.
WESTLAKE G.C. - 07/14/2022, Instead of celebrating the July 14th Bastille Day at the French Embassy our Group played golf in Westlake Village. Ron Troncatty fired a tidy 3-over Par 69 to win Super Low Gross and TWO Blind Drawn Birdies for an even Fifty Bucks. Bruce Simon claimed $46 by winning both Porter Low Gross and Partners along with a Low Net 3rd Place and one Designated Birdie. The second Designated Birdie had Jim Sabbe's name on it and paid out $26 when added to his Super Low Gross runner-up spot. An identical $26 went to Jeff Sable who tied for Porter Gross runner-up and placed First in both Partners and Putts. The day's Low Net winner was Ted Winship who added a Partners 3rd for an $18 take. Bill Lewis' pair of 2nd Places in Net & Partners provided $12 while Mark Vaughan's runner-ups in both Porter Gross(tied) and Low Putts was worth Ten Bucks. In the single digit dole-outs, Bob Stone got $4 for Partners 2nd and Jim Jacobs $2 for Partners 3rd.
OLIVAS LINKS G.C. - 07/21/2022: The highlight of the day and this early season was Marilou Miller's magnificent HOLE-IN-ONE on that 132yd, Hole #5!! Her ACE claimed $260 from the Members H-I-O Pot and an additonal $52 as this solo effort also confiscated the entire Designated Birdie Pot. In the Blind Drawn Birdie category, Tom Knickerbocker had a solo tweeter and took 2nd Place in both Porter Low Gross and Partners for a $41 payout. The day's Super Low Gross winner was Brian Oblak, posting a patriotic "76" that was worth $40 when supplemented by his Low Net 2nd Place and 1/2 share of the second Blind Draw Birdie. Pat Gallagher shared Brian's birdie and also won Low Putts plus a Partners 3rd Place to pickup $32. First Place finishes in both Low Net and Partners paid out $22 to John Moskoff. The Super Low Gross runner-up was Jim Sabbe who also notched a Partners 1st and Low Putts 2nd for a $15 reward. A win in Porter Low Gross provided an even Ten Bucks to Tony Giapapas, while $5 found Bill Lewis in Partners 2nd & Net 3rd and a token Two Bucks saluted Mike Belson in Partners 3rd Place.
THE VINEYARD G.C. @ RIVERRIDGE - 07/28/2022: Only 6 players showed up to tackle this tough track and somehow 5 of them shared in the wager pots. Top dollar went to Ron Troncatty whose $52 take rewarded a win in Super Low Gross, a pair of 2nd Places in Low Net & Partners, along with Two(2) solo birdies and a 1/2 share of another. Jeff Sable pocketed $22 with a trio of First Places, Porter Low Gross(tie), Low Net & Partners plus a 2nd Place tie for Low Putts. Miguel Romero tied Jeff for that Porter Low Gross and was also paired with him in Partners to realize $12. Tom Knickerbocker's Ten Bucks represented a Partners 2nd Place and a tied for 2nd Low Putts plus the remaining 1/2 birdie share. The Low Putts 1st Place paid out $8 to Bob Stone.
GIGS & STUFF. . .
We actually have some gigs! The Barn Theater in Augusta, Michigan,
Robert Newman
Mr. Newman
will be graced by the talents of our East Coast guy, Robert Newman, who will trod the boards, performing in "Rock Of Ages" from 8/9 to 8/21, and "Young Frankenstein", 823- 9/4. If you're in the area, call Robert and I'm sure he can get you house seats -- Bruce Simon continues to miss our weekly outings sporadically as he continues his run "Dayplaying" in the Transpo Dept. on a variety of projects including Universal's "Never Have I Ever" for Netflix in its forth and final season, and "The 'L' Word for Showtime in it's third season -- Mr. Belson Spoke to Sam Strangis on his birthday last month, as he cruises through his 90's and he wants all to know that he misses his old friends in the group -- August is Jimmies month with birthdays for Raymond on the 14th, Jacobs the 25th, and Dodds on the 30th. Then throw in Gordon Crook on the 28th to spoil our Jimmies theory -- Good for Marilou carding a Hole-In-One at Olivas, but that cost us another $10 to replenish the Pot. Life is getting expensive.
