Keepers Kolor War “Mount Rushmore-The Seventh Inning Stretch” will be kontested on Sunday May 21st with four teams of 10 players representing the characters from the Washington Nationals Seventh Inning Stretch Presidential Races.
In an entertaining Ryder Kup Three-Stage Kompetition, Team Abe, Team Tom, Team Teddy, and Team George will vie for a pot of team Kash Sweeps as well as individual Keepers Kup points. Team Kaptains will be designated from those who sign up and a draft of the four Presidential teams will ensue under the careful scrutiny of the Federal Election Kommission. Handicaps in all matches provide a level playing field-80% in the 2-Man Matches and 90% in the Singles Matches.
Festivities begin Sunday morning with the First Stage 9-hole 2-Man Scramble Matches teeing off between 8:00 and 9:00 am playing for 36 team points per match. The same pairings will play the back nine the Second Stage Double 2-Man Best Ball/Worst Ball match so they are effectively two matches going at the same time in each foursome. Each of those matches are played 36 team points so the total available in each foursome is 72 points.
We break to lick war wounds, grab a snack, and a review the team scoreboard situation. The finish is the Third Stage 5-Hole Short Game Skills Matches starting at at the Sydney Harman Short Game Area and the Old Short Game Practice Greens at 1:30. These matches are made up of foursomes of one player of similar handicap from each Presidential squad who will play Almost Skins (7/5/3/1 points per hole) for an available 80 points per foursome. The whole shebang should be done by 2:30 pm.
The winners booty…..members of the winning team get $50 Kash Sweeps per person with $25 Kash Sweeps per person for the runner-up team. Individual points from matches will be tallied to determine the four team MVPs (top individual point totals) who get 200 Keepers Kup Points and a Presidential Bobblehead Trophy for their efforts.
Last year, in the Battle of the Beers 2016, it was the formidable Team Corona Extras-Moe Dweck, John Friedson, Steve Keller, Herbie Cherner, Harry Harrison, Phil Schulman, Monroe Brett, and Chet Levine-who prevailed as the “Top of the Hops”.
