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

Keepers Pro-Schmo Results

Posted on Updated on

The Keepers season got off to a rip roaring start today with our annual Masters Weekend Keepers Pro-Schmo.Masters Logo  Thirty-six guys teamed up with seven of the pros who shot the best rounds in Friday’s second round at Augusta.  The Virtual Pro Partners included Bubba (68), Thomas Bjorn (68), John Senden (68), Jim Furyk (68), Lucas Glover (69), Gonzalo Fdez Castrano (69), and Brandon Grace (69).

Each Keeper played a virtual Best Ball with the pro they picked out of The Keepers Kap, Thomas Bjorn was clearly the desired pick with his 8 birdies in yesterday’s round. But as you will see the winners in the event had a cross section of help from their ghost pros.

The winners in today’s top prize in Keepers Kup Points and Keepers Kash Sweeps were  Steve “Country Doc” Keller/Brandon Grace and Rich “Kojak” Greenberg/G. Fdez Castrano with net 61 on the South Zoysia.  Five pairings tied for third place with net 62.  They were Neal Bobys/Lucas Glover, Chet Levine/Thomas Bjorn, Arnie Miller/Brandon Grace, Jimmy Polsky/Thomas Bjorn,  and Rob “New Boy On The Block” Shesser/John Senden.

In the Folds of Honor/Wounded Warriors Player’s Pool Kash Game we played a Stapleford-Like kompetition called Net Pars Or Better.  This charity competition raised $330 toward our annual donation to these two worthy causes.

Without the help of any ghost pros the winners in this kompetition were:

1st- Steve Keller with 22 points

T-2nd Rich Greenberg and Rick Brecher with 20 points

3rd- Arnie Miller with 19 points

There were a Keepers Slew of guys at 17 points (7 guys) who will be replaying a few missed downhill three-footers in their minds tonight.

Keepers Kollection 2014

Posted on Updated on

The Spring 2014 Keepers Wear and Accessories have arrived in time for the season opening Pro-Schmo this Saturday.  Keepers and Gavel

The Keepers Fashion Subcommittee scanned the entire PGA Merchandise Show in January just to find items worthy of being part of this year’s kollection.   In celebration of Keepers Seven, our seventh year in the kamaraderie business, we have elevated the Keepers Gavel to a position of appropriate recognition, sporting it on our Keepers Hat and Towel this year.  No, it is not an elementary school recorder, the Olympic Torch, or a paint brush….it is The Keepers Gavel spawned from a cathartic experience of one of our weighty members at the first Keepers Last Supper in 2008.

Included this year are all cotton long sleeve sweatshirts, vests, and golf shirts from Martin Sportswear.  Presented in a soft and soothing island periwinkle these should work as well at Joe’s Stone Crab Happy Hour as stalking the fifth fairway on the North.   As always, The Keepers will look resplendent in this year’s selections.

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.
