Month: April 2015

Keepers of the Month-April 2015

Posted on Updated on

Keepers and Gavel
With the first month under our belts for 2015 we had two events The Pro-Schmoe and the Woodmont Par Three provide the main scoring opportunities in the Keepers Kup standings.  Opening Day did not result in any performance points since it turned in to a soggy 7-hole affair with great food. Participaiton Points did go to the 44 Keepers participating in the event.
.
Based on their first place finish in the Par Three and participation points in the Pro-Schmo Rusty “Mr. Coffee” Minkoff, Alan “The Hanging Judge” Levine, and Jimmy “Boom Boom” Polsky shared the Keepers of the Month and Lead Dog Position for the month.  They will each get $25 in sweeps for the Keeper of the Month and we will figure out some kind of Time-Share Arrangement for the Yellow Lead Dog Cover.

Lots of Kup Points will be in the play in May with Keepers Flap Jacks next Tuesday night, Woodmont Member-Member on the 16/17th, Woodmont Twilight League starting May 20th, the Bonanaza on the 31st, and the first of three of our Keepers Two-Man Team Alternate Shot Series nights coming up on May 19th.  Points for wins in both Keepers Match Play Matches and Woodmont Two-Man Matches will start to flow through as well.

Things are heatin’ up fast.

 

Twilight League 2015

Posted on Updated on

Woodmont LogoThe Woodmont Men’s Twilight League, a Spring/Summer celebration of fun golf and fine eating, will be held Wednesday night’s this year starting on May 20th through June 24th.  Sign ups are open through the Woodmont Website or by calling the golf shop.

As has become the tradition in this Woodmont golf league,  you pick your partner and are placed on one of five teams-which includes a professional captain-for a series of 9-Hole best ball matches over six weeks. Playing with 80% of your course handicap, each match is worth 9 points as you accumulate totals for your team.  There are sweeps prizes each week and and overall team winners for the whole shooting match.

Matches begin each Wednesday evening at 5 p.m. with a shotgun start.  As an added bonus there are 50 Keeper’s Kup Points for every weekly match you win and 25 for every match you tie.  This is a proven way to sneak up the Keepers Kup Standings under the radar.

Best part is that no matter how bad you play you still get the delectable buffet dinner which covers the full gamut of your culinary favorites.  Don’t miss out of the fun, sign up while there is still space for the Men’s Twilight League.

Par Three Tournament 2015-Results

Posted on Updated on

The Courthouse Winds were up for Northern Exposure, the 2015 Woodmont Par Three Tournament, contested today by 100 men and women over a 2041 Yard Par 54 track designed by D & D & W Associates.  33 Keepers were part of the kompetion which was played as a Step-Back Scramble for both Gross and Net Prizes.

The Keepers team of Rusty “Joe D” Minkoff, Alan “The Hanging Judge” Levine, and Jim “Boom Boom” Polsky torched the field with both the low gross and low net scores for the day with 46 and 40.9 respectively.  As you can imagine they were hitting it close and making the putts with 8 birdies over the 18 holes.  In the post game interview Joe D said they were never close to making a bogie getting top performances throughout their line up.  As you can see, our flag was well represented as three other teams with Keepers finished in the money.

Keepers Pro-Schmo 2015 Results

Posted on Updated on

Masters LogoWith a strong field of 40 Keepers and 10 Pro Avatars the Keepers Pro-Schmo kicked off Season 8 with style.  Playing a virtual best ball with their Pro Avatar’s score from Master’s Sunday it took net birdies and eagles by the Keepers to end up at the top of the scoreboard.

The kompetition was keen this year and it took net 58’s from Craig “A New Broom Sweeps Clean” Goodman and Rory McIlroy  and Phil “The Hammer” Malet and Rickie Fowler to claim the top prize.  Craig helped Rory’s 65 with 6 net birdies and a net eagle to reach their 58.  Phil added 4 net birdies, a net eagle, and a couple of crucial pars when Rickie had bogies to get them to the magic 58.   Wearing his Saturday black, Rich “Kojak” Greenberg teamed with Ian Poulter for a net 59 to take third place.  Tied for fourth place was Tom “Burn Notice” Burne who shot 36 on his own ball before relying on Jordan Spieth to carry them home along with Paul “PC” Cohen who made net eagles on #3 and #16 teaming with Hideki Matsuyama for net 60’s.  Check out the Keepers Pro-Schmo Results link below to see the full field results.

In the separate Players Pool Kash Kompetition which was a Stapleford Net Pars Or Better on The Keepers ball the Keepers raised the first $360 for this year’s contribution to the Folds of Honor Foundation and SMGA/Wounded Warriors organization.  Burne Notice dominated the field with 15 of his 24 points on the front nine besting Rick “I Know What To Do With My Shots” Cohen who had two net eagles and three net birdies on his way to second with 20 points.  Tied third were Rusty “Where Have You Gone Joe Dimaggio” Minkoff and Kojak with 19 points each.  The payouts and full results of the Player’s Pool are linked below.
