Week 4 - Pairings

Parings list for Week 4 is active and finalized. You can find it on the "tournament page" by clicking the link that says "Jun 4" on the schedule. If you need to see the expanded schedule, use the "Schedule" tab at the top of the blog. It's a living document so it changes all the time as we finalize locations.

Dave brought in Mike H. last week at World Woods, but unfortunately we only grabbed 16 spots this week at TPC Tampa. They don't have any groups book-ending ours, so Mike can have a spot if anyone bails last minute.

To our veteran members... make sure you're coaching up anyone you bring in, since you are their sponsor. Let them know how it works, and how to sign up for any events. You're basically responsible for them.

We have only six memberships left to give out. Robbie is going to get one next season if he wants it. Greg, Danny, Mike H. are all interested and building a handicap record when they can. But once we hit 24 I'm locking it up, as it's exponentially more difficult to maintain and schedule. Less is more!

Wait, by no groups bookending ours, you mean no available tee times, right? No groups sounds like there are open tee times before and after. Just want to clarify.

Mike Gorecki said...

I called my contact there (again) today and she said they are NO available tee times before or after our 4ea foursomes. If Mike wants to bring some buddies (or you as well JW) and can fill out a foursome, have one of them call and book a tee time and I'll get TPC to give them the same rate we are getting.

Bookending #notscrong

J.W. said...

Crum just booked 9:03

Chandler said...

Tell him to save a spot for Mike H.

J.W. said...

Pretty sure he's got Mike H, Mike G, and him slotted thus far and is looking for a fourth.

Chandler said...

Garcia, right? Not Gorecki. We got too many Mikes.

J.W. said...

And now Chase is playing, too. They've got a foursome.

Katie said...

Did you tell us the tee-times?

Chandler said...

Yes. And tee times are always located on the "Tournament Page." First group goes off at 9:12am.

Crum and his band of misfits goes off earlier than that, allegedly.

Geoff said...

Less Mikes is more Mikes.

I would like to play Sunday at TPC - Danny mac

Chandler said...

As of now we don't have a spot for you, Danny. Actually... last I heard Crum's group he added (and subsequently filled) was being charged $109. Gorecki's contact was going to attempt to get them our rate but was pretty pissed about the last minute addition.

So if anyone backs out, I'll have John let you know.

J.W. said...

So that post about just calling and adding a foursome was fake news?

Chandler said...

No, that was real news.

Crum booking through the website like he did worked despite what we were told, but they were going to charge him $109. Still might. Gorecki has to confirm.

You people trying to get "IN" less than 7 days out is the problem. This will be the last week we accommodate anyone last minute.

Mike Gorecki said...

Ok here's the email I just received from my contact at TPC:

"Everything is set for your group. Mr. Crum was able to grab the 9:03 time booking through our website but since it’s within the short booking window, Justin allowed me to update his rate from $109 to the $54 rate – you can tell Mr. Crum that your connections at TPC made that possible :P."

As Chandler stated, it's not as simple as adding a tee time last minute online. Getting a group rate involves alot of "behind the scenes" efforts from both the person calling on behalf of the league and the course representative. And I (and I'm sure Chandler and Troy and any others who call courses for our league) don't mind these efforts because we want the league to enjoy playing nice courses at good rates. But in the end I'm glad everything worked out for this week (except for Danny sorry bud).

Michael Hauch said...

Thank you crum, as well as gorecki for getting us on at 9:03... as well as getting us the awesome rate. I will see everybody who comes out tomorrow... as well as everybody else Sunday.

Geoff Leighly said...

Who the fuck are Crum, DannyMac, Haunch, Mike G and Robbie? Sorry, I don't keep up with the latest trending boy bands. I let my subscription to TigerBeat lapse a few decades ago.

Chandler said...

Great question. Just like how you brought Troy to the group and are officially his sponsor and responsible for him... we have some new prospective members:

Danny Mac - played a few times with us, brought in by John.
Hauch - randomly met Dave on the golf course and they've been inseparable since.
Robbie - belongs to Katie, although he's in a social boy band club with JW. He's literally played 4 events with us so far.

Then there's JW's band of misfits that turn up from time to time:

Mike G - also known as "Garcia", gives handies for a living.
Crum - has too many kids to join full time... although I wish he would grab one of our FINAL memberships.
Chase - I got no commentary on Chase.

I'm signing you up to play with the new kids on the block in upcoming weeks, Geoff. You need to get out more.

Chris Faz said...

That's one way to make sure they don't keep coming back...

+5 points for me!

Chandler said...

If only Gorecki could make a funny comment on this blog... he'd have some DPT Points this season!

Michael Hauch said...

Inseparable with dave but he turned me down to golf westchase wednesday using some excuse called work.

Chandler said...

He might be the only Irishman to work more than 20 hours a week...
