Our Keepers Tuesday Pick-Up Game on August 26th introduces a newly discovered format rumored to have been created by guys up in the Baltimore area-hence we have decided to call it Attmans Aces Down. This is a three-man team 9-hole event with tee times are between 4:45 and 5:30 on Tuesday August 26th. Team members play with 80% of their course handicap.
The concept is simple, if you concentrate. Each team will count toward their total Attmans Aces Down score 15 net scores to par made by the team members over the 9 holes played (there are 27 net scores for 3 guys over 9 holes for those trying to tabulate this). The team must decide after each hole, before they tee off on the next hole, which of the net scores to par for that hole count toward their team total. Once a team tees off on the next hole they no longer can choose any scores from previous holes.
The total to par of the 15 net scores chosen is the team score for the event. Every team member must have at least 2 net scores counted and no team member may have more than 7 net scores counted toward the total.
The Keepers Shitach Komputer will make the team assignments in a typically fair and equitable manner or by blind draw if it get’s confused. So throw caution to the wind and sign up for the inaugural Attmans Aces Down event by clicking the Kosher K below.
The last full field Saturday Keepers event of the year will be on August 2nd with morning tee times. The format will be the short order Two-Man Ham n’ Egg menu offering where you and your partner count your net score on every other hole.
For example it starts out that the Ham (you) score counts on the odd holes and the Egg (him) score counts on the even holes. But there is a twist (would we expect anything else in a Keepers concoction). Twice during the round, if circumstances warrant it (maybe you left three in a row in the bunker and it is a Ham hole), you can “flip” the omelet and use your partner’s score instead. Once you do that the Ham n’ Egg score sequence changes from that point on. You can flip back if need be only one more time during the round so you have to flip carefully….it is like saving your purchased mulligans.
The kompetition is low net score for 18 holes-80% handicap for each guy-and you can pick your grilling partner if you choose. Sign up by hitting the Kosher K and, if you want to designate your Ham ‘n Egg partner, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and we will align your pairing as requested.
This year’s edition of Keeper’s Kolor War celebrates the Kulinary Doo-Wop Era with a Hot Shoppes Revival. Freshen your palate and join us in this year’s 27-hole team kompetition on Saturday July 19th as a member of the Hot Fudge Ice Cream Cakes, Orange Freezes, Teen Twists, or Mighty Mo’s.
The event will be played Saturday morning at 7:30 to 8:00 am with back-to-back nine-hole two-man formats, followed by a Hot Shoppes themed lunch and a final afternoon nine at 1:oo. Four teams of six to eight players will compete in 9-holes of alternate shot match play first-each hole is worth 2 points for an available 18 points per foursome. The second nine, same partners, will play a double best/almost best ball match so there are effectively two matches going at the same time in each foursome. 36 points available for each foursome in the second stanza. After lunch foursomes made up of one player from each food group of similar handicap will play Almost Skins (7/5/3/1 points per hole) for an available 63 points per team.
The members of the winning team get $100 Kash Sweeps per person with $50 Kash Sweeps per person for the runner-up team. Individual points from matches will be tallied with the top five individual finishers getting 300, 200, 150, 100, and 50 Keepers Kup points respectively. There is no entry fee for the event so all the winnings are net.
Come and help us celebrate the revival of an institution from our youth that actually started in 1927 (that would be Herbie Cherner’s youth). This is always a fun and spirited event, even without songfest. Slots are limited so sign up early or miss out on the Might Mo special sauce opportunity.

The Keepers Kup race turns the half mile pole and starts to head for home. The next leg begins on the 8th of July when we will hold our next Tuesday Night Nine-Hole Pickup Game. The format is the always popular Almost Skins where we will group the kompetitors together with similar handicaps to play a net 4-man match for points. Each hole is worth 7-5-3-1 points respectively to the guys who have the best to worst scores on the hole. This is similar to the format played in the Woodmont-Woodholme-Suburban Tri-Club event in October. Tee times will be between 5 and 6 pm on a course yet to be determined.
There are Keepers Points to the top five Almost Skins scores of the day and Keepers Kash Sweeps to the top three.
On Tuesday June 24th The Keepers and Young Guns will run a collaborative afterwork 9-hole 4-Club event with tee times from 5 to 6 p.m. The teams will be blended members from the two groups playing a net best ball with 90% of their handicaps. The 4-club format is always fun where each player will designate 4 clubs they can use during the round (no sharing clubs between team mates)-the putter is considered a club if you choose to take it with you. This takes a little forethought in picking your implements so plan accordingly.
Entry fee is $10 kash per man-all the money will go to pay off the top three winning teams. There will also be Keepers Kup Points to the top five finishing Keepers.

This Saturday Keepers event on June 14th pits you in a one-on-one match against one of the pro’s playing at the 2014 U.S. Open at Pinehurst. We will assemble the scores of 8 of the pros from Thursday’s round at Pinehurst and post them to par on the corresponding holes on the Woodmont scorecard. You get 110% of your handicap in a kuasi-Stableford kompetition against the pro you picked from the Keepers Kap. For each hole you win in your match you get 3 points, for each hole you tie you get 1 point. Total points for the day wins the event.
Last year’s event had serious fireworks-it took 29 points to win as (4) guys beat their pros soundly.
Phil Malet over Dustin Johnson
Howard Wollner over Lee Westwood
Lew Selis over Luke Donald
Gary Fisher over Sergio Garcia
Don’t miss your chance to enhance you position in the Kup Standings. Keepers Kup points for the top 5 finishers and Kash Sweeps for the top 3.
The annual grudge match of the Old Farts vs the Young Farts will be contested on Saturday May 31st. Still smarting from last year’s 132.5 to 101.5 shellacking, The Keepers have added legally borderline supplements to their diets and are keen for revenge.
This is a team event with 16 to 24 guys from each squad configured in (3) different formats of 18 hole matches. All the matches are worth 18 points (one point a hole) so they are contested to the final hole and all kontestants will play from the same tees. The matches will include 2-Man Best Ball (80% handicaps), 2-Man Scrambles (Blended handicaps), and Singles (90% handicap) with the captains from each side determining who will play which format.
Billy B, winner of last year’s Keepers Match Play, will kaptain The Keepers squad and make all the painful decisions. You can sign up to make yourself eligible to play in the event by hitting the Kosher K. Just because you sign up does not guarantee you are in the line-up. Billy will make final determination of the roster and the matches based on the Burak-Metrics system.
This is a great outing so sign up to be a part as we seek to regain the Whoopee Cushion we deserve!
