April 24, 2021 (Quail Brook)

It was a comfortable day at Quail Brook.  Jim Petronchak started off with 3 Pars and never looked back.  Jim shot a gross 73 which included 4 Birdies, 9 Net Birdies, a Net 32 on the front and a Net 33 on the back and finished with a Net 65.  He was first in the front and second in the back.  He takes a one shot win over Mansour Rismanchi who finished with a Net 66.

Not to be out done Bob Babetski finished 4th with Net 70 but had 4 Birdies, 9 Net Birdies, 4 Net Eagles and 2 Sandies.  Rich Fitzgerald tied the front with a Net 32 and John Rutigliano won the back with a Net 31.  Ed Korleski and Jim Rinaldi both had 3 Greenies and won Gross Par 3's with a 12.

The big news of the day came moments ago.  After many hours of deliberation white smoke was finally seen from the House of Rules and Competition and the committee has made a decision.  Ron Ceglia Jr. was given the wrong ruling on his tee shot on 17 and the rules and competition committee assessed an additional 2 stroke penalty for playing the wrong ball - he had taken a 2 stroke penalty already so a total of 4 strokes. His score on the hole is adjusted to a 9.  That cost Ron an additional $.65.

Notables - George Canfield's next round will be his 6th. 

April 22, 2021 (Neshanic Valley - Meadow/Lake)

A brisk 3 hr and 10 min round and a brisk 45 degrees with steady 20+ mph winds.  Not a lot of junk. Bruce wins the back and the overall. Rick wins the front and easily lights his cigar in 25mph winds. .  Ceggys short game is a little rusty. Another great day on the course.

April 20, 2021 (Quail Brook)

​Greens were airated yesterday made for some intersting putts.  Perfect weather. Dan Price finishes with a 10 on # 18 to hand the win to Bruce.  Dan also won the net birdie and greenie pot. Bruce Ties for the front and wns the back and the overall.  Rick 'the birdie machine' Newport takes the birdie pot.
Rules Committee Decision: Unintentionally touching the sand next to the ball during a practice swing - no penalty. 

April 17, 2021 (Neshanic Valley R/L)

It was November in April.  It was cold and the wind at Neshanic made it worse.  Bruce Rapp managed the cold, assisted by a pit stop to the parking lot after #3 (you can drive a cart in the parking lot) to get another layer, and had the hot hand.  He tied both the front Net 34 and the back Net 36 and finished with a Net 70.  His chippie/birdie on #15 (cried all the way to the green because of his appoach shot) really sealed the deal.  Bruce was the only one to finish under net par.  Andrew Keller came in second and won Net Birdies, Net Eagles and Sandies.

We had our first PQR of the season and the team of Schuler and Perry shot a sizzling Net 66.

April 14, 2021 (Neshanic Valley - Ridge/Meadow)

Nice day to start , brief showers and windy towards the end. Bruce edges Rinaldi, Petro takes 10 on 18, water ball and hits wrong ball. 

April 13, 2021 (Quail Brook)

Luke Wolters pays a visit to NJ. Introduces himself to George and Rick by saying I haven't played in a year and 2 months and promptly pars the first three holes.  He also pulls out a pyramid putter ... puts the putter behind the ball.  The putter stands behind the ball  as he walks away to line up his putt.   He wins by 3 over Rick despite Rick's 3 birdies.

April 10, 2021 (Spooky Brook - World Series Qualifier #1)

There was a buzz in the air as we had our first World Series qualifier of 2021.  It was a great turnout and the weather was pleasant.  Not often do we have a tie on a qualifier but today the day belonged to Reese Evans and Bob Babetski both finishing with a Net 66.  Reese had identical numbers front and back with Net 33 and did sprinkle in 5 Birdies one shy of the DGA record.  He did have his chance on 14 where the 8 foot putt didn't drop.  This will be Reese's second time qualifying for World Series.

Bob finished second on the front with a Net 32 and had a strong back with a Net 34.  He had and impressive 10 Net Birdies.  This will be Bob's 11th time qualifying which moves him past Dave Perry for sole possesion of second place in number of times qualifying, now only 13 away from Min Minutello.  Congratulations Bob and Reese.

Other notables, Andrew Keller won the back with a Net 32, Mike Jeffries had 10 Net Birdies, 5 players won Sandys with 1 and Net Par 3's with 11. Frank Thiry opted for the Senior tees today.

There was some handicap confusion but GHIN was consulted and all was well.

April 8, 2021 (Spooky Brook)

​Bruce and Min tie with 75s nipping Mike and Rick by one shot. Absolutely beautiful spring day 70 and sunny - light winds. Greens were quick. Frank records the first official round played from the senior tees. The tees were more favorable on the front than the back but considering that he only had to give up 2 shots for 300 yards makes sense. this was Frank's first round in 6 months and it showed on the last 2 holes when he finished with a couple of nines.

April 5, 2021 (Copper Hill)

A beautiful spring day for the Caliendo Championship - reached 70 by the end of the round - very windy most of the day. The strong winds, super fast greens and tough pin placements made for high scores at least for the guys playing DGA.  Congrats to the ageless one - Minny wins the Senior Net championship - would have to be the oldest winner on record. Jim P played with him and said he chipped and putted his butt off. Reese eagles the par 5 3rd hole and wins $220 for a skin. Mike birdies the par 3 2nd and wins $76 for a skin. Rick was in contention for senior gross and net until late in the round - just finishing out of the money.

April 3, 2021 (Green Knoll)

​Congrats to Ed K for being the 22nd member of the DGA to be elected to the HOF. The round started off quite cold and it did warm up much later. Charlie wins by 2 over Bruce but Rick is the top money winner by cashing in 5 pots and winning the back nine. Scores were very high with the cold start and surprisingly fast greens. George Canfield makes his prospective debut and finishes in the top half - earning $5 - this despite a 10 on 18. Thanks to Dave for announcing Ed's intro and for Frank for showing up for the ceremony and bringing beer!
