AND THE WINNERS WERE...
WESTLAKE G.C. - 08/03/2023: This course has become a comfortable venue where our
Robert Stone
Mr. Stone
Senior Group gets rewarded with attractive scoring and good distribution of the wager pots. Atop this day's money list was Bob Stone extracting $44 from the Porter Low Gross runner-up plus 1&1/2 birdie shares. Winner of that Porter Gross was Tony Giapapas whose $43 take also covered Low Putts 1st, Partners 3rd(tie) and a shared birdie reward. At just 2-Over Par 68 we found Jim Sabbe, winner of the Super Low Gross, tied 3rd in both Low Net & Partners and another of the shared birdie boys for a $20 take.. Runner-up in Super Gross was Ron Troncatty who also shared a birdie for his $14 payout. The final shared birdie paid $12 to Tom Knickerbocker while Mike Belson glomed $9 out of Net 2nd & Partners 3rd(tie). Eight Bucks apiece found Perry Melillo in Partners 2nd, Low Putts 2nd(tie) & Net 3rd(tie) and Jeff Sable in Partners 1st & Net 3rd(tie). Jimmy Dodds pocketed $5 for Partners 2nd & Net 3rd(tie) while Marilou Miller squeezed $1 out of her tie for Partners 3rd.
LOS ROBLES GREENS G.C. - 08/10/2023: Well, here's Tony again, Giapapas that is, winning the Porter Low Gross award for the SIXTH week in a row and 8th time in this early season. He added a solo birdie award , 2nd Low Net and 2nd Partners(tie) to pocket top dollar of $49. Another of the day's solo birdie boys was Jim Sabbe winning $47 with his tie for Low Putts, a Partners 1st Place and Super Gross runner-up. The day's 3rd solo birdie went to Craig Fehrman who added a Partners 1st Place and Porter Gross 2nd Place to collect $39. Winner of the Super Low Gross was Ron Troncatty posting a tidy 77 that earned $36 with a tie for Low Putts, 3rd Low Net, and a shared birdie. Mark Vaughan won the day's Low Net and tied for Partners 2nd to earn $17. Brian Oblak's only mark was a share of RonTron's tweeter worth $12. Three Bucks apiece found Tom Knickerbocker and Bob Stone tied for Partners 2nd Place.
SIMI HILLS G.C. - 08/17/2023: Contrary to the usual outcome, this week less than half the field finished "in the money" topped by Jim Sabbe's sizeable take of $82 from his Super Low Gross runner-up spot and 3/4 of all the available Birdie Booty. Tony Giapapas continued his run of Porter Low Gross wins and also took 1st Places in Low Putts, Partners, and Low Net(tied) for a $54 payout. Brian Oblak won the Super Low Gross title plus the remaining solo birdie, 2nd Low Putts, and 3rd Partners to collect $45. Jimmy Dodds tied Tong G. for Low Net and joined him in Partners 1st for an $18 take. A pair of 3rd Places in Net & Partners earned $9 for John Moskoff while a pair of 2nd Places in Porter Gross(tied) and Partners paid $8 to Craig Fehrman with Bruce Simon joining Craig in the Porter Gross runner-up spot worth $4.
Victoria Lakes G.C. - 8/24/23: Four foursomes escaped the valley heat this day enjoying temperate weather and a finely groomed track. Tom Knickerbocker was the big money winner garnering $68 with a 1st place tie in Porter Gross, a T-3rd in Individual Net and the entire Designated Birdie handle. Bruce Simon's $56 was next on the money list tying "Nick" with his 84 in Porter Gross, sharing T-3 in Individual Net, a 1st in Partners Net, but even his 1 1/2 Birdie winnings fell short as they came from the shared 'draw' pot. Topping the Super Gross list was Ron Troncatty with $32 and a score of 80, a 2nd in Partners Net, a 2nd in Putts, and the balance of the Blind Draw Birdie moneys with 1/2. Mighty John Moskoff took home $28 after earning a 2nd in Individual Net a 2nd in Partners, and his 28 strokes with the flat stick topped the Putting column. Bill Lewis impressed in the Partners pots earning a 1st in each for a $24 payout. Jeff Sable brought in $5 for his INet T-3rd and Partners 3rd. Rounding out the money winners were Tom Abraham with $3 for 3rd in Partners, Brian Oblak and Dave Bertelsen each with $2 sharing T-2nd in Super Gross, and Marilou Miller taking in $2 for her T-3rd in Individual Net.
Olivas Links G.C. - 8/31/23: Eleven of the seventeen playing members were in the money on this, the fifth round in the month of August, and were headed by Big Dave Bertelsen who carded a fine 77 allowing him to pocket a nice $84 with firsts in Super Gross and Putts to go along with 2 Birdies. Next on the leaderboard was Slick Jeff Sable with a fine 80 taking 1st's in Porter Gross and Individual Net and a birdie of his own earning $62. Bobby Stone managed a wonderful back nine rendering a nice 83 and collected winnings of $28 for a 3rd in INet and a exchanged Birdies on hole #10 with Bruce Simon who got his money's worth on the scorecard but still received $14 from the pot. Tom Abraham also took home $14 with a 2nd's in Individual Net and Partners. With 2nd's in Super Gross and Putts, Brian Oblack's winnings were $8. and the super-hot Tony Giapapas carded a steady 82 which brought in $8 for his 2nd in Porter. Partnering with a Net 131, 1st place and another $8 each was Miguel Romero and Bill Lewis. And finally with their 2nd in Partners was Tom Knickerbocker and Joe Cala who each grabbed $4.
GIGS & STUFF. . .
Jim Jacobs, is still rehabing from his successful heart valve surgery which was accompanied by some common setbacks
Jim Jacobs
Mr. Jacobs
and hopes to visit the group one day in the near future. It will take a bit more time, but he fully expects to rejoin us on a limited schedule very soon, and we all are thinking of him and are wishing him a full and speedy recovery! -- The WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes have certainly taken their toll on those members of the DPTGG who work in the industry as well as so many ancillary industries such as retail, hospitality, security, and many others. The good side of it however is that for some of our members, it has afforded them more opportunities to work on bringing the handicap down. Regardless we all hope the labor disputes are resolved quickly so we can all get back to some sense of normalcy.
