Twenty-two golfers (six teams) teed it up at Willow Creek for out weekly go. Every team came in complaining about how poorly they played, maybe because we had to count all four scores on each of the five par 3s. The long hitting team of Jide Ayo-Vaugh, Dan Newton, and Bob Burkman came in first with a 9-under 138. The team of Odunsi, York, Sidenblad, and Biehl cam in second with a 139. Two other teams tied for third and fourth with a 144. Par was 147.
Closest-to-the-pin on no. 17 was Mr. York (about 4-feet). On hole no. 3, Mr. York failed to put out the CTP marker, but several golfers “remembered” that they had come very close and probably should be awarded the sleeve of balls.
The weather did get a little warm toward the end heading to a high of about 95°F for the day. A great spread as usual. Also the last time we played Willow Creek players got a “rain check”. You could have used it today, but next time we need to pull them out–
WE STILL NEED VOLUNTEERS TO DO THE PAIRINGS DURING THE COMING MONTHS!!
A nice day at High Meadow Ranch that got just a tad muggy over the last few holes. Typical Houston summers. The Big winner was the team of Mr. Cooper, Mr. Cramer, Mr. Kearney, and Mr. Cook with a sterling 122 (-20). In second, carded out using USGA procedures, was the team of Mr. Blackburn, Mr. Godschalk, Mr. Canning, and Mr. Burkman, also 122.
Closest to the pin on HMR no. 9 was Mr. York, about 7-feet away and on no. 11, also about 7-feet away was Mr. Carr. Mr. Carr jetted in from Colorado to tee it up with us. It is really easy to travel with Netjets nowadays.
In looking over the scorecards, there were a few errors. It pays to double check (two people add up the numbers) as people are leaving money on the table. This math is costing money.
Attached are the pairings for tomorrow at the Cypress Course at Cypresswood. We’ll play two low net on the front and a modified shamble on the back nine. The weather is getting warmer, but its still not Houston summer, so it should be nice.
We had another good turnout this week. Thanks to all of you for the great recruiting job you’ve done! Last year we got down to averaging only 10-15 players each week, and now we’re doing almost 28-30 per week. This helps us when we approach the golf courses for prices and timing. Thanks AmocoPairings-Master_2017-Ver2.pdf
Attached are the pairings for tomorrow at Oakhurst. We had a number of special requests, so some of the teams looks a little lopsided. Not sure if that is bad or good, but thats the way it is for tomorrow. The special requests were honored because of people leaving, and new players.
UPDATED VERSION: Oakhurst Modified Pairings as of 10:10pm

This week at Lake Windcrest will are deviating from our normal format. There are two flights – Pros & Semi-Pros.
The three Semi Foursomes will play the usual Amoco format while playing from the forward (Green) tees.
The Four Pro Foursomes will play regular stroke golf on all 18 holes. Modification are indicated on the score card and on the pairings sheet. This group will play from the white tees.
There are separate pairing sheets for each flight. Generally if you handicap is above 9 you are playing in the Semi Group

We are playing Lake Windcrest on Tuesday with good weather in the forecast. And this is after two weeks with rain checks and thunder. Lake Windcrest is one of the courses where we generally have a good turnout due to course conditions and a spaghetti lunch. If 24 or more sign up I plan to divide the group into two flights—Pros and Semi Pros. “A” players generally are never are paired together and this is a good opportunity to play with equals. Hope to see your name on the sign up sheet this weekend.
