Keepers Match Play Results 2020

Posted on Updated on

This year’s Keepers Match Play was a full-fledged five-match handicaped flighted affair.  Each of the five flights represented a tight range of handicaps which meant that in almost none of the four matches it took to win a bracket more than a handful of shots were being given.  This led to lots and lots of nail biting, tension laden outcomes for the participants trying to get a krack at the winner’s kash sweeps and the handsome plaques displayed below.

In the First Tee Flight the final match would have pitted two of our lowest handicaps in The Keepers with Howie “The Quiet Assassin” Stein vs Mike “The Coach” Fisher in an eagerly anticipated match-up.  Unfortunately, due to unreconcilable scheduling issues, the match did not materialize and they decided to call it a tie and split the sweeps.

The Keepers Klothing for 2021 has been put on display in the Golf Shop TV Room for your viewing and item/size selection.

This year the Kollection will include your choice from a pair of Peter Millar whimsical themed print golf shirts or a white golf shirt, a coordinated 1/4 Zip Solid Perth Pullovers,  and a Millar Leather-Trim Duffle  or a Titleist Players Backpack to karry your important Keeper stuff.   The three items are covered as part of your Annual Keepers Fee for 2021 of $380.

Peter Millar Kollection

Peter Millar has introduced a series of print golf shirts in tech materials that liven up your wardrobe for a different look out on the links.  We picked two of them, a Navy Grateful Dead print and a Porcelain Caddy Shack print to match your daily mood.  These shirts are the classic fit 3-button placket with moisture wicking comfort and UPF sun protection built in.  If you prefer an alternative we have the solid White Performance Tech Shirt that will work nicely for you.

The two solid 1/4 Zip Perth Pullovers in Navy and Deep Ocean are a perfect complement to the shirt of your choice on one of those shoulder season days.  Made of four way stretch French Terry the performance fabric is easy care machine washable and has a mock collar and banded cuffs and hem for a smart fit.  All of these items are sized S, M, L, XL, and XXL.  For those in need of a little more wiggle room the white shirt and navy pullover come in XXXL.

We have decided to add to this year’s kollection a couple of carry bags to get you to-and-from the gym, golf course, or trail walk if you are so inclined.  The Peter Millar Duffle Bag comes in navy with leather accent and web trim.  It is durable nylon, light weight, and has handles and a shoulder strap.  The alternative you can choose is the Titleist Players Backpack.  This piece is durably konstructed to take trunk abuse and has plenty of room for all your stuff, including a compartment dedicated to your laptop.  Lots of zippered pouches and a couple of bottle sleeves for auxiliary hydration support.

If you would like to purchase an additional golf shirt, pullover, or carry bag, we will charge your Woodmont account $60, $75, or $90 respectively, just indicate that when you submit your choices.

Keepers Half Smokes Playoffs Results 2020

Posted on Updated on

Once the smoke had cleared two Keepers, Jimmy “Boom Boom” Polsky and Neal “Found My Putting” Bobys, prevailed in the Two-Phase Half Smokes Playoffs and stood atop of the American and National Divisions respectively.  They had to grind out top level performances on both the Zoysia and the Bent to claim the soon to be cherished Keepers Half Smoke Headcover Trophies and a pile of Kash Sweeps.

The Half Smokes Winners-Jimmy Polsky American-Neal Bobys National

In the opening stanza Barry “Making This A Habit” Haberman led the Americans with a fine Net 69 on the Zoysia followed by Kevin “Bullseye” Bass with Net 70.  In the Nationals four guys tied first with Net 70 including Neal, Rick “Mr. Persistence” Cohen, Marc “The Bronx Bantam” Fink, and Burt “Kuddly Bear” Feldman.

This set the table for an interesting pair of Half Smokes Standings going into the final phase. 

Bobys and Cohen were in a virtual two-man race for top honors in the Nationals with no one else left within striking distance.  Kuddly Bear, who had been hovering in third in the Nationals, pulled a Bill Belichick maneuver with his fine play down the stretch by sinking his index below the 15.0 level in early September and switching into the American Division for the final phase to claim the top spot.  It was a mere 5 point advantage, with Boom Boom and Allen “Mr. August” Zweig hot on his heels, but Burt set himself up as the man to katch.

In the first two days of the Bent Phase on the North, Jimmy ground out a fine 39-43-82 and used his 13 shots to set the bar in the Americans at Net 69.  Volleys were fired with Burt posting a fine Net 70 on the final day to tie second with Rick “I Am Gonna Get Paid” Payes, including birdies on 13 and 18.  But Burt fell a shot short of tying Jimmy for first in this phase and relinquished his slim lead to finish second in the standings.  Mr. August lost a bit of his mojo with the change of seasons  and fell just out of the top five in the Bent Phase but held on to the #3 spot in the American Standings for the year.

On the Nationals side Steve “Nitro” Gordon did what he has done a number of times in Keepers kompetitions this year quantum leaping the field shooting a kareer round.  He was one over on the Par 3’s and made an unlikely birdie on the 17th of the North on the way to a 7-Under Net 65 to lock up the phase first spot early in the week.  A couple of Net 69’s by Harry “Sifford” Harrison and Rusty “The Itinerant One” Minkoff took second in the Nationals Bent Phase.  In the head to head Neal’s Net 70 tied fourth and he held on to eak out the year-long victory over Mr. Persistence” by 165 points.

2020 Three Tee Scoresheets

Keepers Half Smokes Year Long Kompetition

Posted on Updated on

As you all know our Keepers Season has been had all the furniture moved about by the Kovid Pandemic that has so significantly changed our day-to-day lifestyle.  As a result we will only be able to have about half of the Woodmont Golf and Keepers Golf Events that usually make up our schedule and feed our year-long Keepers Kup Kompetition.

So we have decided to replace the Keepers Kup with something a little less ambitious but equally tantalizing that we are calling the Keepers Half Smokes Kompetition.  Similar to the Kup this will be a season long kompetition fed by the points you earn from the Keepers Events we are able to sponsor in this abbreviated season, there just won’t be as many of them as we are used to.  Points are awarded for participation in these events and to the top five finishers as is our kustom.

The big difference is, that unlike the Keepers Kup which determines one overall winner at the end of the year, we are fashioning the Keepers Half Smokes to identify the two year end points kings based on two divisions- the American and National-which represent Keepers with Handicap Indexes of up to 15.0 and 15.1 and higher respectively.  The standings for these two divisions will be posted on the this website through the season as each of our events are concluded.  Just click on the “Keepers Half Smokes Standings” link on the right column of the website home screen.

Wouldn’t this delectable adornment look good on your trophy shelf at year’s end?

 

At the end of the year we will have a Keepers Half Smokes Finale with additional major points on the line.  After which those at the top of the divisional Keepers Half Smoke Standings will be crowned the Half Smoke Champions for the year.  Unlike the Keepers Kup Finale there will not be a reset of standings points before the finale event

The Keepers Half Smokes Headcover shown above will be given to the winner in each division and there will be serious Kash Sweeps for the top five finishers in both divisions.  Here are the Kash Sweeps on the line at the end of this road.

Keepers Half Smokes Playoff Prizes:

Half Smoke Points and Kash Sweeps Prizes for Zoysia and Bent Phase Winners (each division):

1st 300 pts, 2nd 200 pts, 3rd 150 pts, 4th 100 pts, 5th 50 pts

1st Place $100,  2nd Place $50, 3rd Place $25

Kash Sweeps Prizes for Half Smokes Winners (each division):

1st Places $200, 2nd Place $150, 3rd Place $125, 4th Place $75, 5th Place $50

1st Place Keepers Half Smokes Headcover

We have a bevy of Keepers events planned between now and the end of the year so build up your point inventory by participating and give yourself a chance to be a Keepers Half Smoke Champion for 2020.

Keepers Kount 2-3-4 2020

Posted on Updated on

The next event on this year’s Kovid Schedule is a new one we call Keepers Kount 2-3-4.  You assemble your own Four-Man team for this kompetition and schedule a tee time to be played on the South Course between Wednesday July 8th and Wednesday July 15th. You must designate all four of your team members when you sign up so make some calls.

The format revolves around the sum of a particular number of net scores or each hole depending on the par for that hole.  The team score kounts the 2 best net scores on the Par 5’s, the 3 best net scores on the Par 4’s, and all 4 net scores on the Par 3’s.

The effect of a bad individual number is mitigated in that, according to USGA promulgation, your individual maximum score on a hole is a net double bogie.  Each player gets 80% of their Course Handicap from the tees they are playing.  Most will play the Blue Tees but the Blue/Green Tees are available to those who qualify.

Once you finish your round just take a photo of the card and e-mail (moedweck@comcast.net) or text it (301-379-1533) and we will update the scoresheet for the event.

Event Prizes Per Man:

Keepers Kash Sweeps: 1st-$100, 2nd-$50, 3rd-$25

Keepers Kup Points:  1st (300), 2nd (200), 3rd  (150), 4th (100), 5th (50)
