DGA a NJ Golf Club
Bruce (of course), Mike and Jim tie with net 74s on a typical day at Twisted Dunes. Plenty of wind and warm when the sun was out and a little cold when the clouds rolled in. Rick returns from his Florida sabbatical and at least brings a decent day. He left for Florida the day before the huge snow storm.
Dave Perry returns from Myrtle Beach and finishes strong to win by one over Bruce at Harbor Pines. Bumpy Greens but a nice course. Bruce hits the pin on # 6, the ball disappears, everyone is wondering if it went in. for eagle. Nope, hidden behind a hump in the green 3 feet from the hole. And NO he did not make the birdie putt. Jim Rinaldi makes Sandy, par on 18 to sweep the nassau against Dave and Rick.
Rick 'Tequila Rose' Newport shoots 37 gross on the back nine at Spring Lake Golf club and wins DGA by 4 strokes. Nice shooting Rick !! Great course, aerated greens made for for some challenging putts. Beautiful shorts weather. Ron Emma and Jim Rinaldi take a caddie. On a number of holes, their tee shots could not be further apart. Mike was a great caddie.
The Handicaps that were published before the round were for Ridge / Lake. Neshanic had us on Ridge / Meadow. Petro and Dave lose a shot, everyone else stays the same. Quote of the day from the team of JimR and Bruce that you never want to hear from your partner .... "I can't wait to get off of this course."
Cloudy and cool but all in all a good day. Dave Perry squeezes in a full day of work while playing golf. Rick wins the imaginary birdie pot. JimP shoots even par on the back nine. Bruce shoots 66 to wins by 4 strokes
Hints of spring this Saturday at Spooky Brook. Rick, Dave and Dennis tie with 72s. Rick is the money winner for the day. Nice shooting guys ! Big Welcome to our new prospective member George Canfield. Introduce yourself when you see him. Bonus points to George for bringing beer durng his first round.
In our first implementation of the 2021 rules committee (discussed during the winter meeting) a two stroke penalty was assessed after the round for unknowingly playing the wrong ball. Mansour played a ball from the hazard on 17 after moving up to hit a second ball before finding the ball in the penalty area. The other members of his foursome were not aware of the proper ruling and asked him to play two balls. The penalty was assesed by the rules committee. Petro similarly hit his First ball into the penalty area on 17 and knew he could not play his ball once he moved up to hit a second. Affectionately known by the DGA as the Dave Perry rule for some years now. I expect thiswill be the first of many post round rules committee discussions and rulings. For those wondering how they could play from the hazard, the lake is mostly drained. Although I do believe Petro could walk on water if is save him a stroke.
Jim Rinaldi birdies 4 of the first 8 holes on his way to a 2 under par front nine of 34 gross! He cools off on the back but still wins easily by 5 shots over Mike. PM George Canfield plays his second pre season round and shoots a respectable net 72.
Rick wins by 4 on a soggy course with surprisingly fast greens. This was the "Old Caliendo" rules with only walking and carrying allowed. No carts of any kind.
Babo prevails on a very wet GK course. Almost 5 hours! EK hits it solid but can’t score. DP gets concerned on ball inventory as he posts an 11 on #6!
Mark and Dave shoot net 69s to tie for the win on a beautiful Spring day. Greens were fast and the pin placement on 12 was ridiculous especially if you were unfortunate enough to be above the cup. Petro has 4 birdies and Rick birdies the last 2 holes including chipping in on 18. Mark attributes his return to the winner's circle to his swing makeover that he has been working on for 1 year? 2 years? 5 years? Dave was happy he could drink beer again since he found a gluten free beer.
Jim P wins by 1 with a clutch par putt on the last hole #9. We started on the 10th hole.
Very windy conditions and a wet course made for difficult scoring especially the 3rd and 4th place finishers. Par 3 scoring included a 5, 6 and two 7s on the par 3 7th hole.
