Mike J and Babo win by 2 over Bruce "I can't compete" Rapp. The weather turned out beautiful despite the forecast of rain. Most guys were overdressed - expecting rain and cold. The course was wet in spots but the greens were fast. Ron Sr joined us for the festivities and finished in the money with a tie on the front and sharing in a couple of pots. Bob Nowark made the only sandy using his usual putter sand wedge. Now on to the highlights and lowlights. Due to several late drops the 2 foursomes were in front of the 2 threesomes - this made for a very slow front nine due in part to the cart path only rule. When the 2 threesomes arrived on the 10th tee - while they waited they decided to play as a "sixsome" and did so for the next 5 holes - they had no problem keeping up with the second foursome. Apparently one or both of the groups behind us called the clubhouse to let them know we were playing as a sixsome. Our buddy Gary was dispatched to break up our group and told us on the 14th green that we had to revert to threesomes. All this did was slow it up for the the groups behind us. Smart thinking by them. Bruce invited the group directly behind us to join us as a sevensome but they declined and said they did not call the clubhouse. It made for some lively conversation in the parking lot.

JR recovers from a mental gaffe on our 4th hole that led to a triple to win by 3 over Rick. Highlight of the day - Min lips out for a hole-in-one on 14 - he ended up 2' 11" away and this didn't even win the closest to the pin for the day - which was 6 inches closer. It was a beautiful sunny and clear fall day. Course was wet but the greens were fast.

Ron SR makes a birdie on the first hole he has played in NJ since 2019. Ron Gothier nips SR by 1 with a Net 75…but SR wins more money by winning the front 9 and winning or splitting many of the pots. Meanwhile, Greg had an easy day saying "Nice Shot, Ron" to all of his playing partners.

JR prevails by one shot over the rest of the field with a par on 18. JP dominates the pots. Weather was a perfect fall day - sunny 75 and some wind. Rough was penal. JR hit so many great tee shots - right down the stipe while Mike led the field in searches for his tee shots. We got to play a "free" round as a makeup for the NJ Member Day that was called after 10 holes due to thunderstorms this summer. Thanks to JP for his perseverance in finding a date we could all play and setting it up with the course.

Beautiful mid-October day, 80's, sunny, slight breeze. Ed wins by 1 over George. Jr. nursing a Fall Classic win hangover.

Per JR - "An uneventful round" - no one hung around - all got in their cars after the round and left - hopefully all bets were paid. Ron G and JR tied for the win and won all the money.

Charlie and Mark had NO trouble with the aerated greens - both holed multiple puts over 10 feet to win by 2 over Andrew. Charlie shot one under gross on the front. Andrew bests JP in the match play final 6 and 4. Jim said the closest he ever got was one down after the 3rd hole. Billy starts with 3 doubles claiming dizziness from his medication but then birdies 3 out of 5 holes from 7 to 11 almost making a hole-in-one on 11 (less than a foot). Many mistakes on the scorecards as people didn't see JP's email that corrected the handicaps. Ed K claims fatigue from playing with Bob N on Thursday and this his 8th day in a row for his lackluster performance. He did have a special chauffer pick him up after the round. Mike and Ron offered Charlie and Billy $11 for the side be on the 9th tee - they refused and ended up winning $16. Mansour promised to bring beer next week for his hole in one - MJ will bring beer for his win before Tampa the week of 10-23 so we will all be able to get wasted 2 weeks in a row. Charlie and Mark can bring additional libations too.

Dave Perry buzzed the hole 5 times for birdies on the front 9 but finally made a 3 footer on #18. The Keller/Rutigliano team tied for 1st even though JVR didn't think they played well.

Head Line - Mansour makes a hole in one on the 9th hole - 112 yrs gap wedge and goes on to win by 3 shots over Jim Rinaldi, rest of the field was an afterthought. Larry Thiry breaks his one round streak of no equities. Reminder - please pay more attentions to the scorecards- one group had several math errors and gross a nd net cards did not match.
