PRESIDENT CUP ROUND 1 HIGHLIGHTS

The First Major of the year: you know the saying “you can’t win the tourney on the first day but you damn well can sure lose it”.  Was it the wind, back tee boxes, heat, hard greens or just the lack of talent today?  The average gross score was the highest we’ve had in years…any guesses?   Nope….Mully ?   Nope… it was 77!  We had a 12 on hole # 2, a 10 on # 13 & a 10 on # 18 not to mention a bunch of 6 & 7’s.  

So what did the leaders do that we didn’t today?  Only 4 guys shot under par net today led by Mike Goldberg, who shot the low gross of the day 63 and the low net of the day 53.  Mike has been shooting very well lately but I think it was “the no Sophie distraction”   Mike can actually keep his head down and not worry about the rest of the guys heads turning.   Jason Bouzos is in 2nd place, shooting a net 57 today.  Jason’s best part of his game is his mouth but with no one to trash talk today (except Grant regarding the Broncos) he had to concentrate on golf or was it his Denver Jersey, socks, towel, slippers and G-string panties ( verified by Javier Chavez)  that gave him the mojo. It sure helped them Broncos win the Super Bowl today.   Brad Webster is tied for 3rd place with a net 58, so how did he do it?  Well after having 7 3-putts on his Thursday round of Golf he spent all day Saturday watching Golf on T.V. and noticed something about the pro’s and how they putt.  So he tried it out this morning on the practice green and after draining 3 out of 4 putts he said “what the heck it feels good let’s take it out of the course”  It worked, Brad was the only player with under 30 putts today his 28 putts won him first place low putts.   New Member David Baldwin also shot a net 58, I will have to chalk this one up to “beginners luck?” or it could have been his solid finish, he was the only player to play the last 4 holes even par today.   Jeff Joyce rounds out the featured group for next Sunday.  Jeff shot an even par net 59.   So how did he do it? Well after receiving his email Saturday requesting to squeeze in to the tourney I said “sure”… only seeing his email Jeff49er… I figured it was Jeff Hickenbottom ( no I don’t know everyone’s email by heart)  So when Jeff Joyce showed up today with no scorecard and not on the sign-up sheet , I  guess he wanted to prove a point….”remember me now Mr. Mansfield”  Yes Sir Mr. Joyce !!..   

See attached for your tee times next Sunday.

Low Gross Low Net results-   Webster did something he has never done since he joined the club … Beat Mansfield on a tie breaker…  Both Mansfield & Webster shot a gross 65 today but after they both par’d the # 1 handicap (6th hole) Webster par’s  # 13 beating Mansfield’s bogey (Thanks Gary “Decel” Mully)  Brad also wins low putts, and a gross skin on # 5.  Mansfield settles for 2nd gross, a closest too on # 7, long drive on # 13 and a tied for 2nd low putts.  Rick Walker gets 3rd gross in A flight and a closest too on # 5 ( You missed that 4 footer and gave Webster the skin ? . It’s ok. So did Hailey, because he birdied it but only got into net skins) Andres got 1st net (61), Chavez got 2nd net & a closest too on # 15.  Jim Reich got 3rd net.

B FlightMike Goldberg wins 1st Gross and his bird on # 16 gave him a gross / net skin.  David Baldwin wins 2nd gross.   Jim Emmerling takes 3rd Gross, long drive seniors, and double dipped for his birdie on # 2.  Jason Bouzos wins first net (57) and best super bowl outfit.  Lindner takes down 2nd net (63) and Cliff Adams takes 3rd net, tied for 2nd low putts (30), a gross skin on # 8 and a net skin on # 8.

C Flight- Jeff Joyce first gross (72).  Dan Williams 2nd gross. Bryan Coll 3rd gross.   First net was won by Jim Hardin(60) and his bird on # 4 gave him a net skin.  Paul Hailey wins 2nd net and a net skin for his bird on # 4 (averaging a birdie per round).  Murray Oxman takes down 3rd net.

Other winners- Grant Clarke was the only player that made his first putt on hole # 6 today, so he wins $3 for long putt.   Chip “welcome back” Fabrizio double dips for his bird on # 12.   Frank Welte wins a net skin on # 1.

Birch Hills Cup- Mike Goldberg gets double the points today and jumps into first place.  Brad Webster moves up to 2nd and Jim Hardin is in 3rd.
