DGA a NJ Golf Club
Mr. Babetski wins yet again, despite vowing not to play winter golf, as he beats Mr. Grote and Mr. Perry by 2 strokes. Course was in very good shape and the greens were quick, more than a few 3 putts.
Ron Emma rides a hot 7 hole stretch to an easy 7 shot win.
Jim Rinaldi masters very windy conditions on a course with some tight fairways to win by 5. He also avoided the blow up hole that doomed the rest of the field.
Beautiful fall day and the Beer Line is under Par. Jim Rinaldi leaves the Bar early to avoid buying a round (He eventually won by 1 stroke over Petronchak). But hey, at least he actually shows up at the bar to socialize (somewhat) with the DGA. The 1st group of Rinaldi, Evans, Emma and Griffith all Birdie the 5th Hole. Minutello shoots under his age again, but it was a little easier since Friday was his Birthday!
Congrats to the ageless wonder - Min - he aced the 17th hole for his 6th career hole in one. He turns 86 tomorrow and still walks and carries his own bag. This was also the closest to the pin hole for the winter league. Min wins by 2 over Jim P who returned from his back problems with 2 birdies.
On a brisk day at Quail, Mr. Winter tour gets his second straight win by three shots over Jim Rinaldi who hit almost every green, but three putted many of them. Many tees were back and pins were in tricky places with double breaks or breaks that weren't there. GK3 makes an appearance up north and starts with an 11 on the first hole. He pulled it back together until he finished with another 11 on 18. Welcome to NJ!
Jim Rinaldi got up and down on 18 for a bogey and a one shot win over Ron Emma who three putted 18. Course was in great condition. Greens were slick and many of us lost strokes on the greens
Babetski reverses his decision not to play Winter golf (shocker!) and shoots a Net 64 for a 1 stroke win over Schuler. Unfortunately he didn't have a piece of ANY Pots so Schuler ends up winning more $$. Fitz dumps four balls into the pond on 17 only to find his original in a greenside bunker. He said they were brand new balls. The general consensus was that after dumping two in, people USUALLY go to a scuffed ball (or to someone else's bag)! The usual fodder at the bar regarding pace of Play since at one point there were 4 groups on the 17th hole.
Galloping Hill kicked our butts. Jim Rinaldi avoids any blow up holes and wins by 1 over Mike Jeffries. Fast greens, wind and heavy rough got us all at some point.
