Keepers Pro-Schmo 2022-Results

Posted on Updated on

Masters LogoThe Keepers Season got off to a sizzling start as our guys kompeted for Kash Sweeps and Kup Points in the annual Keepers Pro-Schmo.  Those with the best early season skills and a proper rapport with their Virtual Pros are kurrently at the top of the Keepers Kup Standings…at least for now.

In the American Division a new comer to the Keepers ranks, Wayne “New Person” Berson, shot a gross 78 and teamed with the iron-man Sungjae Im to shoot 59 and kapture first place.  Wayne’s net eagle on 5 and a string of net birdies on 8, 9, 10, and 12 proved decisive.

Marc “Fine Grind” Birnbaum shook off any rust as he teamed with Cameron Smith to take second with net 61.  Tied third in the division at net 62 were Rich “Kojak” Greenberg with Cameron Smith and Steve “Kontrolled Kurve” Lustig with Patrick Cantley.  A bevy of kompetitors tied fifth at net 63 including Jon “Leave The Light On” Bortz with Sungjae Im, Peter “Through The Looking” Glass with Sungjae Im, Keith “Kaptin” Eig with Patrick Cantlay, Bobby “Jack Lalanne” Fogel with Cameron Smith, and Don “Mr. Tell” Greenberg with Sungjae Im.

Arthur “I’m Getting The Hang of This” Dubin skorched the field with a little help from Danny Willett on the way to shooting a record net 57 on the first day of the competition.  Obviously fresh greens suited them.  Arthur had a run on the inward nine on 14, 15, 16, and 17 where he made natural pars that accounted for 7 shots under in that four-hole stretch.

Tied second at net 60 were Rick “Orange Line” Cohen with Cameron Smith and Ray “You Can Call Me ….” Thal with Sungjae Im.  Tied fourth at net 61 were a couple of old war horses, Harry “Komeback Kid” Harrison  and Steve “The Country Dentist” Keller both with Cameron Smith.

Keepers Pro-Schmo 2022

Posted on Updated on

Masters LogoWe will open the Keepers Kampaign for 2022 by bringing back an old favorite that we have not seen since 2019, the Keepers Pro-Schmo, a low impact Two-Man Team Kompetition where you play a best ball with a Virtual Pro score from Sunday’s final round The Masters.

What could be more fun then playing best ball with Rory, Jon, Jordan, Dustin, Justin, Scottie, Colin, or Brooks?

We will provide you with a scorecard a couple of days before the event which will have your Pro’s hole-by-hole Augusta score posted to par on the North Course.  You will play a virtual best ball between your Virtual Pro Partner’s gross score and your Schmo net score on each hole.

As is our custom we will split the field into two divisions playing for two sets of prizes.  The American Division will be Keepers with Handicap Indexes of 15.0 or less and the National Division comprised of those with Handicap Indexes of 15.1 or higher.  Prizes for winners include Keepers Kash Sweeps and Keepers Kup Points for the top five finishing Team Best Ball scores in each division.

If you are in the American Division you will have a choice of playing the Gold Tee or the Gold/Green Combo Tee in your event round with the appropriate 90% handicap from the tee of your choice.  The National Division players will choose between playing the Gold/Green Combo Tee or the Green Tee with the corresponding 90% handicap.

A scorecard with your designated Virtual Pro will be emailed to you before the event starts with lists of the American and National participants and the two event handicaps you have to choose from.  You can make your tee selection and dot your card accordingly for the strokes you get.  Once you have finished your event round just take a photo of the card and email it or text it to Moe to record your team’s event score.

Sign up for the event through the Kosher K below and your Virtual Pro Partner will be assigned by our artificial intelligence algorithm based on the random number you pick between 1 and 8 when you register.

It will be your responsibility to schedule your event round on the North Course, preferably with at least one other Keeper, between Wednesday May 13th and Wednesday May 20th.

Keepers Kampaign Preview 2022

Posted on Updated on

Keepers Kups 2021

The annual march to lay claim on the Kopper Kups begins in April as 122 Keepers embark on the 2022 Keepers Kampaign.  This year it will include 18 kompetitions-10 Keepers Events and 8 Woodmont Golf Events-as the guys compete in two divisions throughout the year, American (Hcp Index of 15.0 or lower) and National (Hcp Index of 15.1 or higher), playing for their piece of over $10,000 in Kash Sweeps.  

The eight Woodmont Golf Events include Opening Day, Senior Member-Guest, Alzheimers Event, Woodmont Match Play Club Championship, (2) 18-Hole Couples events, Senior Club Championship, and the Woodmont Two-Man Team.  In all cases top finishing Keepers will win valuable Keepers Kup Points to enhance their position in the American or National Division.

This year The Keepers will have two year-long match play kompetitions, the Keepers Match Play and the Keepers Pairs Match Play, with matches once a month starting in May-win you advance, lose it is sayonara baby!  In these matches the tee you play is based on your bracket so everyone in your bracket will play the same tees.

The Keepers Match Play arrays 96 players according to handicap index in (6) flights called Oakmont, Bandon Dunes, Pinehurst, Pebble Beach, Riviera, and Oakland Hills for single elimination match play.  It takes four match wins to capture the bracket crown, konsiderable kup points and kash sweeps, and this handsome wood plaque kommemorating your accomplishment.

Herb Kushner Champion

The Keepers Pairs Match Play is new this year-a two-man team kompetition where the guys will select a partner to sign up with whose handicap index is in the same bracket designated by handicap range- Seminole Bracket (4.6-10.6 hcp index), Royal Liverpool (10.7-15.5), L.A.C.C. (15.6 to 21.1), and Royal Lytham/St. Annes (21.2 to 32.6).  We will create these four brackets with 8 teams in each (a total of 64 participants) and the play will begin.  It takes three match wins to take your bracket and all the goodies that go with it.

BTW, 25 Keepers points to anyone who can korrectly tell me the source of the naming convention of both Match Play kompetitions.  Email your entry to me by midnight Tuesday for a jump start on your Keepers Kup Point Kollection.

One change from last year regards the tees you will play from in Keepers events.  For all the other Keepers events but the two Match Plays players will have the option to play from one of two tees based on their division and the course we are playing.  Event handicap will depend on the tee you choose for that course.

If you are playing American-North you get to choose Gold or Gold/Green Combo and South you get to choose Blue or Blue/Green Combo.

If you are playing National-North you get to choose Gold/Green Combo or Green and South Blue/Green Combo or Green.

The regular season begins with a full field event on Sunday April 17th we call the Pro-Schmo.  Each Keeper is assigned a virtual pro partner whose scores from Sunday’s Masters final round will be matched to par on the Woodmont scorecard.  Together they will play a net best ball-it usually takes something in the low 60’s to take home this top prize.

We have brought back the Keepers Kount 2-3-4 Four-Man Team event in early May.  Guys will carefully choose among their friends to assemble a squad that will count 2 net best balls on the Par 5s, 3 net best balls on the Par 4s, and all four net balls on the Par 3’s.  Needless to say the three-pars can cause konsiderable konsternation in this format.

For the first time The Keepers will play a full field event with a block of tees times on a weekday afternoon.  With tee times from 12 noon to 2 pm guys will have to show their adaptive skills in the Keepers Half Sets when they play the full 18 holes on the South Course with only 7 clubs.   

In mid June the annual Keepers Beat The Pro will be played on Father’s Day Weekend.  This time each Keeper has to play a head-to-head 18 hole match against the scorecard of one of the pros from Thursday’s opening round of the U.S. Open at The Country Club At Brookline.  

In late July we bring back an old favorite, the Keepers Ham n Egg.  Pick a partner and guys will play a round where one player’s net scores count on the Odd Holes and his partner’s count on the Even Holes.  We do accommodate two well-timed flips during the round to help avoid a scorecard train wreck.

Alternate shot returns with the Pinehurst Glenmorangie on Sunday August 7th which always tests a teams ability to play without having to say their sorry.

The two-phase playoffs in late August and early September will konclude the Keepers Kampaign and determine who will hoist the Keepers Kup as champion in the American and National Divisions.

Sounds to me like another year long thrill ride………set your schedule to get your piece of the action!!!

Millar Print Shirts On Two Guys 2

Peter Millar has been at the forefront of themed print golf shirts in tech materials that liven up your wardrobe for a different look when strolling the links.  We picked two of them, a white ground Arnold Palmer Half & Half print, a testimony to the drink the King introduced that changed the 19th hole forever, and a navy Golf Landmarks print that depicts iconic images from famous courses across the globe.  These shirts are the classic fit 3-button placket with moisture wicking comfort and UPF sun protection built in.  If you prefer an alternative we have the solid navy Performance Tech Shirt that will work nicely for you.

In response to popular demand we have added to to this year’s kollection the Imperial White Old Norse Sun Hat to protect your keppie on those hot sundrenched summer days.  Made of a kooling tech fabric it wicks away moisture and vents it off through the mesh side panels.  This one comes in two sizes-S/M and L/XL so make sure you try it on for a proper fit.  For those who want to go more konventional we have an solid Azure Baseball Hat made of the super light tech material that makes Imperial hats so popular.

Keepers Kup Playoffs Results 2021

Posted on Updated on

Once again this year we had a two-phase format for the final leg to determine the Keepers Kup Champions.  The first phase was played on the Bent of the North Course the first week in September followed by a final 18 holes on the Zoysia on Sunday September 19th.

Keepers Kups 2021
2021 Keepers Kup Winners: American Division-Don Fisher and Brian Fein National Division-Neal Bobys and Bob Fogel

In the Bent Phase the American Division was dominated by Steve “Lear Jet” Lerman and Ronnie “The Tooth” Rosenberg who scorched the field with a pair of net 68’s to take the top prize. Allen “Return To Sender” Zweig was close behind with a net 69 for third. Two were tied fourth with net 70, Don “Star Kiss” Fisher and Jimmy “Here and There” Polsky.

The Nationals had a similar scenario with Ron “Separdie” Dweck and Bobby “Jack Lalanne” Fogel throwing down net 67’s to win the division. Third alone was Burt “Cuddly Bear” Feldman with net 69. A tie for fourth between Rich “Sweet Man” Sussman and Kolman “Chaps” Apt who shot net 71.

This left the Lead Dogs to beat going into the Zoysia Phase as Don Fisher and Neal Bobys, but there was still a number of guys who could snatch the Kups if they did not post a decent number and protect their positions at the top of the American and National Division Standings respectively.  

Lead Dog Trophies 2021
Lead Dogs entering the final phase: Don Fisher-American Division–Neal Bobys-National Division

We could not have asked for a more perfect golf day on the South Course-recently nicknamed little Arizona due to Ryan’s efficient grass management program.  It was sunny, clear, comfortably in the 70’s.  The fairways were lush and giving no roll, the roughs were toasted and mostly lift, clean, and place, and the greens had just enough pace to keep your attention.   

The playing conditions and the playoff pressure combined to make it a difficult scoring day, no one in the field of over 50 Keepers managed a net round under par.  The front nine created lots of hopeful expectation yielding net birdies galore, but the back nine showed it’s teeth, where high scores were lurking, and many found their hopes come crashing back to the ground in a heap.

In the American Division Don “Star Kiss” Fisher played a solid round as a front runner, shooting a one under par 34 on the front which included birdies on 5 and 9.  Leaking a little oil on the inward nine he had a 41 for gross 75/net 71.  This tied him for first with two others, Jimmy “Mostly Here” Polsky and Howard “I Filed For An Extension” Wollner.  Jimmy was steady with 40-41-81 and Howard was more cyclical with 35-45-80 but they both ended up net 71.  Tied fourth were at net 72 were Yale “Truth and Light” Kaplan, Artie “The Sundance Kid” Aronoff, and Arnie “20/20” Miller.

Once the Points and Sweeps were metted out, you can check them out through the “Results Of The Zoysia Phase” link below, Star Kiss maintained his grasp on the Keepers Kup and Brian “Moving Violation” Fein took second as Truth and Light fell just short of catching him due to the three-way share on the fourth place points.

Fisher American Winner
Star Kiss kapped a dominating season long performance in the Americans with today’s net 71 to hoist the Kopper Kup.

The Nationals had a similar result though there were some excellent individual performance by guys who were theoretically not in the mix.  Chet “Multiple Lives” Levine took first in the Zoysia Phase using his 23 shots wisely on the way to a fine Net 72.  Tied second with Net 75s were Rick “Orange Line” Cohen, Bernie “Dental Floss” Greenbaum, and Herbie “The Ageless Wonder” Cherner. 

This put a scare in the hearts of the leaders who clearly were not going to get the top Kup Points or Kash Sweeps in this phase.  Tied fifth were Neal “Found My Putting Stroke” Bobys, Steve “What Are We Playing For” Keller, and Phil “Musaf Express” Schulman with Net 76.  Once again you can see the Zoysia prizing through the link below.

With all the Zoysia tumult in the Nationals the top five positions in the division for the Kup remained unchanged.  Neal took the Nationals Top Prize for the second year running and second fell to Bobby “Jack Lalane” Fogel who had an outstanding year winning two events and finishing top five in three others.  Alan “Terp Station” Schwartz was third, followed in fourth by Mark “Acute” Engel, and Herbie “The Other Ageless Wonder” Kushner who finished fifth.

Bobys National Winner
Neal used strong performances in the Match Play, Woodmont Two-Man Team, Woodmont Flighted Club Championship, and Woodmont Senior Championship on his way to winning the Kup this year.

 Special thanks to our main man Konnor and his staff for the support and assistance in administering our program through the year.  Let’s not forget Cathy Goodrich for her efforts in keeping us looking sharp in this year’s Keepers Klothing Kollection.

Thanks to all of you for making this Keepers Kampaign of 2021 such a success with your enthusiastic participation.

Keepers First Tee Mentor Outing 2021

Posted on Updated on

In keeping with the past tradition, The Keepers will hold our annual First Tee Mentor Outing on Friday August 13th from 11 to 3 pm.  This is a fun day of “being a grandparent” to 35 wonderful kids from the Greater Washington DC First Tee Programs.  The kids age from 8 to 17 but all share two things in common-they love golf and know how to comport themselves in a golfing environment.

Full Group Shot 1
With 35 kids, staff, and volunteers it was a full house for the 2019 First Tee Outing

We invite Keepers and All Woodmont Members to be a volunteer/mentor and help us put on this awesome event.

In the past we have raised over $3,000 to donate to the First Tee Programs of Greater Washington through the generosity of the Woodmont membership.  You can make a donation to sponsor a kid for this event for just $60.   The cost of this event is totally underwritten by The Keepers, so the full proceeds of these sponsorship donations will go to The First Tee Of Greater Washington.

The outing begins at 11 am with a series of clinics on the range and in the Sidney Harman Short Game area.  Woodmont Staff will run the clinics and all you have to do as a volunteer is be supportive and lend a mentoring hand when needed.  A picnic lunch with the kids from around 12:30 to 1:00 in front of the Golf Shop is then followed by some golf when we take them out for four holes of real mentor time on the course.  It all wraps up around 3:00 pm.
