Thanks to all that participated in the two-day Club Championship.
We had a small field but the tournament was very close in two of
the three flights.
The September one-day Match Play Tournament should be very
interesting. Many have already asked about the format.
There will be NO FLIGHTS. Competitors will be matched up in a
blind draw and the handicap differential will be no greater two strokes.
So a player with a course handicap of 2 will only be matched up with a
player with a handicap ranging from 0 to 4. Also a player with a course
handicap of 25 will only be matched up with a player with a handicap
ranging from 23 to 27. Matches should be fair and very close.
Zero to 14 handicaps and 15 and over handicaps will play from the blue
and white tees, respectively.
There are two conditions to qualify for the Honey Pot Prize. First, a player
must beat his opponent. Secondly, the winner must shoot a net 74 or better.
(According to the SCGA, players shoot their handicap about 25% of the time.
That means we will probably pay between 25-30% of the field in prize funds.)
With 48 players (24 matches) in the field, there will be $864 in the Honey Pot.
(If we have 60 players, there will be $1,000 in the Honey Pot.)
If ONLY one player defeats his opponent and the player shoots net 74 or better,
the player will win the entire $864. Statistically, about 6 to 8 players will qualify
for the Honey Pot. Hopefully we will have more than 48 players in the field.
If the match is closed out early, keep playing. We will still have Gross and
Net Skins as well as Closest to the Pin on all 4 of the 3-par holes. There
will be no net roulette in the match play tournament.
Please consider in joining the September tournament. Tournament date is
Saturday, Sep 23. Deadline for sign up is Thursday, Sep 14. (Unfortunately four
people missed the deadline in the last tournament and we were not able to
Remember, in match play, one or two bad holes will not hurt you.
“No limit” Texas Hold’em will take place after the tournament.
See you on the course.
