May is always a great month...it starts getting warmer, but isn't completely over the top yet. We've got a a number of great courses to play this month, starting with Raveneaux, then Oakhurst, Cypresswood, and finally Windrose. Dick Herbst is handling the pairings this month. As pairings coordinator he has absolutle power and control over rules, dress codes, language, format, and weather....Listen up. If anyone else wants to exert this kind of power and receive the adulation of your peers, simply sign up to do pairings by clicking here. We still need help for July, September, October, November and December.

Weekly invitations have been set up to go out automatically this month, since I will be unable to do that. Hopefully everything works as planned. If not, I am sure Dick can count on this fantastic group to help him out.
Since I won't be playing in May, I thought this might be a good time to confuse you all with the linked article on the Physics of Golf. Maybe all your games won't improve this month so I won't fall any further behind. Have a great May.
Cypress Lake - April 2013
Really nice weather and the Cypress Lakes' course was in very nice condition. We only had 14 golfers playing today--don't know why we had such a light turn out??
In any event, Mr. York had some difficulty getting all the teams on the right holes--primarily due to Mr. Holzberg's continual suggestions and the fact that the Cypress Lake seniors were also playing too.
The scores ranged from 97 to 102 with the threesome of Mr. York, Mr. Kearney, and Mr. McIntyre placing 1st, thanks to Mr. Kearney's 12-foot birdie put on the last hole. Second place went to the threesome of Mr. Ikard, Mr. Gallatin, and Mr. Holzberg with a carded-out 98. The card-off went two holes with Mr. Ikard's team recording a par on no. 18 to Mr. Nelly's team bogey. Mr. Nelly, Mr. Tom Patterson, Mr. Clark, and Mr. Van Dinter finished third.
There was only one closest to the pin this week due to someone's failure to put out the second pin. The lone "winner" was Mr. York on no. 17 about 10-feet from the pin and also sinking the putt for birdie.
- Front Nine Back Nine
- 62 36
York 63 34
Gross 64 38
Ikard 65 33
Clearly it was anyone's game when the back side started--
Next week we are at River Plantation and the forecast is a high of 81-degrees with a chance of rain. Hopefully in the p.m.
