Wrap it up

So that’s a wrap on the 2015 summer season. For those that were unable to attend the final round, Reggie threw a very solid 44 (-10) to take the card and win the title of league champ. It should be noted El Champo here had a very consistent summer, throwing an overall average of 48.5. Recording a total of 728 throws all season. In comparison, club overall average was 53.8, and we recorded a total of 19947 throws this year. Nice job keeping it under par everyone!

Now, just because the summer season is done that doesn’t mean we stop playing. I’d argue fall golf is the best. I’d like to suggest we schedule a weekly round Sundays at 10 am. The course played any given week can change. And I’m off duty for collecting any fees or keeping scores. As well, there’s been discussion of getting some glow rounds in while the weather is ideal. I’m currently waiting on some ordered disc LEDs so we can avoid losing our plastic. Hopefully they’ll be in next week. I’ll keep everyone posted.

Thanks again to all those that came out to club this year. We’ve had some great success towards growing the sport in the area. Everyone’s participation in tags, prizes, donations, etc. really helped accomplish this great achievement. I’m continuing to work with the Zoo staff for the new sleeves, but progress is being made. I look forward to some great fall rounds at RV extended, TinLid, and Viamede.

Lastly, good luck to Clint, Karl, Brien, Adam, Reggie, Darrell, Jeff, Brad, Joel, Greg, and Broc, all headed to ODSA Provincial Championships this weekend. Smash some chains gentlemen.

The Final

finIt’s the final round tonight! I’m excited. We’ve got 4 great golfers going head to head and only one will be crowned PDGC league champ. This win certainly earning them the right to demand being referring to as ‘champ’, ‘the champ’, ‘el champo’, etc. Of course, we’ll still
have lots of fun on casual cards too. Perhaps some doubles or skins? We’ll see what the numbers say. Perhaps an extra CTP or LP will be added in too. I’m confident we can get a round in before sun down, however it will be a 6pm sharp start. SHARP. Whatever format we play, try to arrive early enough that I’m able to put some cards together in time for tee off. The end of the work day cannot come fast enough! Looking forward to see everyone tonight.

Playoffs Begin

Sounds like the final round of regular season was a great one. Sorry to miss it, but I had a great vacation with family. Hot 43 shot by Reg, next closest was 5 off that. Standings have been updated to reflect these last rounds. That gives us 22 players making the 9 round minimum cut. Here’s how first round playoffs is going to playout:

Top 2 players get a first week by. Reggie McGrath and Darrell Bankes, that’s you. As with all our other players, I still encourage you to come out for the round, there will be additional casual cards playing. Remaining spots break down as such, with the top 2 from each card moving on:

Card 1 – 3, 22, 12, 13
Card 2 – 4, 21, 11, 14
Card 3 – 5, 20, 10, 15
Card 4 – 6, 19, 9, 16
Card 5 – 7, 18, 8, 17

The following week we’ll have 12 players remaining and will play 4 cards of 3 (ranked) – winner of each card moves to final.

Final week we’ll have the top 4 remaining players battle it out.

I’ll have the first week’s cards printed and ready. We’ll be starting at 6 SHARP as daylight is quickly fading. If you’re late tourney rules apply (+4 per hole missed). In other words, don’t be late, and bring your A-game.

Get your tickets!

This coming Tuesday we will be giving out two tickets to qualify for the provincial final tournament. In order to compete for these spots you need to be able and interested in attending that weekend. Provincial finals are being held Sept. 12-13 in Ettyville (near Ottawa). Entrance fee isn’t cheap at $100, so be sure you’re good for that if you’re going to play for a ticket. Depending on numbers, I’ll try to setup some cards for those interested to compete. Should be fun!
