2016 Ryder Cup

The actual Ryder Cup... not that thing we do which will be getting a re-branding soon... is on this weekend. Friday to Sunday.

Anyone want to meet up at a bar on Sunday and watch the American team choke again? Yeah, football is on too. But this is a bigger deal.

Tell me if you're in and we can choose a location based on the responses.

Countryside Recap & Gorectoberfest Invite

Well despite the fears by some (ok one really *cough Chandler*) EVERYONE showed up on time for our 8:35 start. Brendan actually added a 4th tee time for after 9 but that group went off earlier with us. Due to an inch and a half of rain they got on Friday, the range was closed and it was cart path only. The front 9 was soggy but the back was better. Course overall is OK. Course wasn't in the best shape. The rough is thick and there were plenty of hazards and bunkers we all experienced. Overall we feel it can be added to winter league if the price is right.

Scores to boast about was Dave posting a 3 over 75. Chandler a 5 over 77. Brendan an 86. and me a personal best 42 on the back 9. We won't discuss what I shot on the front but I sure wish the range was open as my first 4 holes were turrible!

Mike O threw his back out on the first hole and Buchert had to play chiropractor. Kid is more fragile than RGIII and Adrian Peterson combined.

As far as the early(ier) tee time. It appears it wasn't met with much opposition and some posted on here they prefer it. I suggest we try a few next season with that and just like when you learn of the course selection, you have the option if you want to attend that week. With the supposed increase in league members next year, we should be comfortable filling out several 4some spots each week no matter the course and tee time selections.

I'd also like to invite the league out for my 40th birthday celebration. I sent an invite out to those I'm friends with on facebook. All are invited though with your WAGS. Its next Friday, September 30th at 7pm at the Tampa Bay Brewing Company (Westchase location). I've reserved the brewery area where they will have high top tables and our own bar. Fell free to attend and help me welcome my 40's with some food, drink and some kind hearted stories of me I'm sure.

Hope to see (most of) you guys there.

Summer 2016 - Faz Stats

Faz sent over his stats. Usually he includes everyone and just highlights those people who played in 4 or fewer events. Well... I just straight up deleted them. Get that non-dedicated clutter out of here!

We need to book Countryside soon. Right now we have one group: Chandler, Gorecki, Darren, Dave. The rest of you fools need to commit ASAP so we don't look like chumps rolling up there with 4 people. Sunday, September 18th.

Countryside Update

The pro at Countryside said September 18th should work out for a group outing. Sometime between 8am and 9:45am. But at the moment we only have myself, Darren and Gorecki.

Countryside is like one of Brendan's favorite courses. And Dave keeps saying he needs to get out. So... where are you people?

Faz, JW and Gary are all out of town. Geoff? Reid? Anyone out there? Any NEW people joining the league should probably sign up for this as well.
