Week 1 Recap

Two tough tournaments this week in soggy conditions.

Saturday we had Just the Tips, which turned into a 9-hole shortened event due to rain. Gary tore up the course anyway with an impressive 40, with Reid right on his heels shooting 44 and losing by 0.5 strokes.

Today was the Geoff skins game at Crescent Oaks, a course that can play fairly long... and even longer with wind and saturated fairways. Of course, that wasn't an issue for Faz who fired an 82 to beat the nearest golfer (Reid) by 8 strokes. None of us stood a chance.

We're already almost 25% through the season, and Faz has a commanding lead. Too bad he'll be missing a lot of tournaments... so the leader board should be tight heading into the Masters. Speaking of, six league members have committed to that out-of-town tournament. We're still waiting to hear if Faz is playing, which would be nice since we picked a weekend he was "in town." I'm pretty sure Dan can't go out of town, so that leaves the final spot to Ben if he wants it. If not, we'll find a non-league member.

-------------------

DPT Open is full. We should be booking Southern Hills, so I'll post that info tomorrow when I get it. Expect a 10am tee time and about $40 greens fees (plus tax).

The NEXT tournament you can register for is the dreaded Hangover Invitational. We're going out to a bar on the 13th... you must show up by 9pm and stay until 1am. We need to pick a bar, so comment some suggestions and let me know if you're playing. You know... get involved and shit.

DPT Open - Sunday July 7th, 2013

Probably heading up to league favorite Southern Hills. I estimate a 10am tee time. Who is IN?

Tournament #2 - Sunday June 30th, 2013

The second tournament this weekend is booked, 9:20am at Crescent Oaks. They have a range so get there early if you want.

Reid and Geoff, you guys can get in on my groupon... bring $28 CASH to pay me directly. Faz has his own deal. Everyone else can pay at the course ($37).

League fee is $10 per person, and skins will be determined by 80% of handicap. Be sure to check out the event page and scorecard to see who's getting what.

We're going to swap the first two tournaments.

THIS Saturday will be the Just the Tips Challenge at Northdale... 12:00pm.

Darren and I have pre-paid 4-somes, so bring $16 in cash to pay for your round. Also bring $5 for the league entry fee... and any money you owe people on the Deadbeat List.

See you there.

Opening Weekend and DPT Masters Trip

The DPT Golf summer season begins June 29th AND June 30th.

The current plan is to play Crescent Oaks on Saturday (29th), and then Northdale on Sunday (30th). Locations might change depending on a lot of variables.

I have a Deal Caddy voucher for 4 people at Crescent Oaks ($28 per person). When you sign up, please let me know if you also have a voucher. I can't remember who else bought one back in May. If nobody else bought one... then the first four people to sign up can be on my voucher

Comment below which events you're attending.

---------------------------------------

DPT Masters this season is September 21st and 22nd. We're going out of town somewhere, possibly World Woods again to play the two day event. Comment NOW if you're joining. The max is 12 people... and if I haven't heard from you by mid July you'll be locked out of the event.

DPT US Open Pool

Almost forgot about this. Next week is the US OPEN.

The next PGA Major is upon us, so let's do some more gambling. Go here to sign up. Password: bushes

If you're already signed up from the Masters, you don't have to do anything. Just pay me and set your rosters.

If I don't have your $10 before play starts on the 13th, you will be kicked out of the group. You can use PayPal by sending money to me at chandler dot brown at the gee mails.

I imagine the pool will be small, so winner is going to take all.

You can read the rules on ESPN, but I'll do my best to summarize it:
  • Before each round (Thursday-Sunday) you select four players. Each player has a dollar amount based on how good they are. Your team can not exceed a $50 salary cap.
  • It's a "best ball" format. So if three of your players get a par, and one gets a birdie... your score for that hole is birdie.
  • Lowest score wins (not counting playoffs).
  • Remember that you can change your roster EVERY DAY. If you forget to do this after Friday, some of your players might not have made the cut and thus will not contribute to your team over the weekend.
