The interest level in our annual Par Three Tournament has been growing in leaps and bounds as husbands and wives, parents and their children, juniors, and a whole lot more kompeted in the 2017 iteration called “Short Circuit”. The Par 54 18-hole design, which featured a few new twists and turns curated by the firm of D & D & W & F, challenged the creativity and skill of 132 Woodmont members, including 44 Keepers, on a warm and sultry spring day.
Great fun was had by all…..Phil Malet got his day started in style with his first career Hole-In-One on the first hole “Ben Franklin” setting off a mishbucha celebration for the ages. Under our adopted Keepers Excellence In Action Policy Phil got 100 Keepers points for this “perfect swing” to go along with lots of high fives.
For The Keepers we prized Kup Points to the top five net groups with Keepers. The formidable group of Howard Isaacson, Rick Brecher, Neal Bobys, and Paul Cohen scorched the bent grass with 41.7 net to take the top Keepers prize. Not far behind were Arnie Miller, Phil Schulman, and Mike Selis whose group shot 43.2 net.
1st Net-Howard Isaacson, Rick Brecher, Neal Bobys, and Paul Cohen 41.7 net 300 Kup Points each
2nd Net-Arnie Miller, Phil Schulman, and Mike Selis 43.2 net 200 Kup Points each
3rd Net-Jimmy Polsky, Barry Minkoff, Billy Burak and Mike Fisher 44 net 150 Kup Points each
T-4th Net-Gary Faigen, Cary Reines, and Arthur Dubin 44.7 net 75 Kup Points each
T-4th Net-Moe Dweck and Marc Fink 44.7 net 75 Kup Points each
The day’s field was so large tournament officials had to split the atom and go to two flights based on team handicaps which provided more spoils to be distributed among winners in gross and net categories. As you can see in the winners covered all age groups and genders. Some of them will have their sweeps placed in trust so as not to endanger their amateur status.
