The first of The Keepers Tuesday evening 9-Hole Pic-Up Games will be May 6th with tee times between 4:00 and 5:30 pm. The format is an old favorite, the Single Elimination Kompetition. This is a second cousin to our 4-Club event, in that it tests your ability to manage the course with less than the full komplement of tools.
Each Keeper starts the first hole with 10 clubs and eliminates the club of his choice on the next tee. It is part of the Keepers Honor Kode to verbally announce his choice so all are aware. If you do the math he will be playing the second hole with 9 clubs, the fifth hole with 6 clubs, and he will be standing on the ninth tee trying to get into the house with just 2 clubs left in play. The putter is one of the clubs so each kompetitior must choose wisely the clubs to designate out of play on each tee.
Players get 90% handicap to lop off the gross score at the end of the nine holes. This is a fun format and it definitely fits the players who know how to create shots, especially down the last four holes.

The third playing of the almost annual Woodmont Par Three Tournament will be held on Sunday April 27th. This engaging competition is open to men and women of all handicap abilities.
Given the 4-Person Scramble format the sheer challenge is mollified slightly by the fact that your result does not have to count on each shot. A scramble handicap increment will be in play for each group so well under par is the expected winning score of the day.
As was the case last year, this is a challenging array of 18 Par 3 holes-the creative work of D & D Design Associates. The holes range from 86 to 160 yards with most under 120 yards, so everyone can have a chance to contribute to their team’s success
So gather round people and sign up to play in this year’s Par Three Extravaganza you won’t be disappointed. Sign up by logging into the Woodmont Club website after clicking the Woodmont W above. Once you have a team you make your own tee time on the North Course between 8 and noon.
Keepers points are available to the top five finishers with Keepers on their squad.

The first event of Keepers Seven is the Keepers Pro-Schmo on Saturday April 12th.
Tee times are from 8:30 to 10:00 am and all Keepers play with 90% of their handicap.
Keepers picks out of the Keepers Kap their pro partner’s score from Friday’s round at Augusta. The Pro’s hole-by-hole score is posted to par on the course we are playing and they play a virtual best ball between the Pro Partner’s gross score and the Keeper Schmo’s net score on each hole.
In last year’s tightly kontested event 30 guys played with the likes of Steve Stricker, Brandt Snedeker, Angel Cabrera, Jason Day, John Senden, and Rory McIlroy. Arnie Miller and Rory teamed up with a fine 11-under par 61 on the South Course to win 300 Keepers Points and $100 in Kash Sweeps. Jim-Jim Polsky and Steve Stricker took second with 62. The teams of Tom Burne Notice/Rory McIlroy and P.C. Cohen/Jason Day were third at 63.
