Comments: Best Ball Format, for all the marbles, on a very windy day at Bellport. This was a continuation of our earlier match. We resumed on 13, but played a money match from 1 and when we got to 13 we began the resumption of our match. At that time J&S were up 1. Both Joe & Brian had parr putts, both missed and halved hole. Then it was Steve's show. He won 15 with a bogie and stroke, 16 with a bogie and stroke, 17 with a parr and stroke and 18 John holed a 70 foot putt for parr and Steve followed with a 5 footer for parr and the win. Good to see Brian playing!!!!

Comments: Beautiful weather day at Bellport. Tom came into the parking lot on two wheels with Billy E waiting patiently with 7 minutes to Tee time. Joe and Steve were pacing.......... and wondered what kind of format was going to be chosen as Tom put his shoes on in the cart. Billy and Tom chose alternate shot and boy did that turn out to be the play ! First hole was halved and then it was off to the races for the Budweiser boys !! By the 8th hole they were +4 and then dropped back to +3 after nine. After Joe sank a great putt on #10 for a birdie it started to go downhill in a big way. Billy's Tee shot on 11 was lost and Steve and Joe parred to gain another shot ! Then on #12 Steve hit a magnificent shot within 18" and Joe sank the putt for another birdie to bring the match to even with 6 holes to go. The Budweiser boys reached into there bag of ice and grabbed their last bottles of Bud. After a little pep talk they were off again, winning the next 2 holes to go up +2 and halving 15 and 16 before Joe and Steve came to life and won 17. Billy and Tom were +1 going into 18. VERY EXICITING.........they parred 18 to Joe and Steves bogey to win the match +2. Billy and Tom might have found a format that fits their games, watch out we might bring out the Clydesdales..................

Comments: Bill F and Chris R of team # 10 fame hosted Bill and Bud of team # 1 to a competitive round of golf at the famous Baiting Hollow Club this past Thursday The format was a two man best ball Nassau. We took the tee at 12:30 under cloudy skies and cool temps. Similar to our first match with Joe and Steve, Chris and I found ourselves down two holes after 5. Bill and Bud started out true and down the middle from the tees and played well around the greens. However, Chris and I righted the ship and pulled to even after 7. The match remained even at the turn and both teams took 1.5 pts. The back side came alive for team 10 as we started par birdie and were up 2. after a half on #12 Bud sank a pressure putt on #13 to close within one but alas , that was as close as they would come as team 10 took holes 15 and 16 to close out the back and the match. Holes 17 and 18 were halved thanks to a beautifully executed par putt by Mr. Reilly on #17 and a blown 6 footer for par by me on #18 costing us a pt. We then retired to the 19th for some well deserved refreshment.

Comments: *****Adjusted score by the Commisioner.

Call it first match nerves or the howling winds at the majestic links at The Vineyard GC but it wasn't pretty although quite competetive.
Scoring was Nassau and best ball, best ball was the format.
We were all square after 2. Team #8 took the lead on 3. Team #4 sqaured the match on 6 only to give it back on hole 7 and Dennis and Mike held on to thier slim lead thru nine to win the front. We split the 10 thru 12 and Tom and Billy squared the match after 13 and were up on the back nine. Dennis and Mike came back strong to win the next 3 holes and close out the match after 17. The press on 18 found Dennis and Mike winning the first ball and splitting the 2nd for a 1.5 /.5 split. All in all it was a fun day with great company.

Comments: First sunny day in a long time but windy as always. Hank and Steve chose Best Ball and Nassau scoring.
Steve hit his usual long drive on the first hole and we lost the first hole. We were able to even up the match when we won the 3rd hole. Stayed that way until the 8th hole when we took the hole. We won the front. On the 11th hole Steve's drive was on the back fringe of the green. He was close to the eagle but got the birdie. That is when things started to go downhill for Bud and Bill. After 15, we were 3 down with 3 to go. Fortunately we were able to take advantage of the strokes we were getting and won the 16th, 17th and 18 when Bill pared the 18th after 3 great approach shots and won the hole all by himself. My ball was in my pocket. Steve and Hank were gracious about the miracle comeback by Bill and Bud. Hope the weather continues to get better.

Comments: Steve & Joe played the first round of Alternate Shot and a Nassau format was used. It took a beautifully executed flip of the coin and the wrong guess by Chris. The front nine went entirely Joe & Steve's way with long tee shot by Steve and a good short game by Joe> Chris & Bill had a little trouble putting which ultimately led to our large 6 up lead after 9. But the back nine Joe & Steve came back to earth as Chris & Bill took a modest lead on the back. The press began on 15 and by the end of 17 the press was even and Chris & Bill were up 1 on the nine. On 18, Chris hit a long straight drive and Steve put Joe in the left sand trap. (DOOM). Joe took is lob wedge while Steve closed his eyes and hit a 60 yd shot to the middle of the fairway. Bill hit a great fairway wood leaving about 100 yds out. Steve was 240 yds out and asked Joe should he try his fairway wood and go for it. He did and put it just off the green. Joe chipped it to 4 feet. Meanwhile Chris pulled his shot and left Bill with a 60 foot putt. Bill hit it past 10 feet leaving Bill a tough and pressure packed putt. He made the putt and Steve followed with his and we halved the press, but lost the nine. Great match and a lot of fun. BUT TEAM PRESSURE!!!!!

Comments: Th format was best ball 18 hole close-out. The weather started out pretty bad and just got worse. The match was a dogfight. We see-sawed back and forth with each team never up by more than 2 holes. On #12, Mike parred and the C/M team went one up for the 1st time in the match.Chris sank 3 long putts between 12 and 15 feet to break R/T's back on each occasion. Rich parred 13 & 14 to take the lead back. Chris parred 16 and the match was all even at 17. On 17 Chris had of those 13 foot putts again and R/T were shaking in their boots after he just drained three of them. The putt was true and heading for the center of the hole but stopped about an inch short. R/T both breathed a sigh of relief. Then Tony stepped up to an 8 foot right breaking putt -took a deep breath and drained it!. R/T now one up going to 18.
Tony parrred 18 to complete the sweep of all the points. A real battle for the first match of the season.

Comments: The Season Kick Off- Many changes!! Joe & Steve took on Hank & Steve. We had a special plan all set to throw these guys a curve ball, But Steve C jumped on the tee declared Heads and flip a coin to heads as Joe & Steve were left totally puzzled as to what happened. They took the format choice and screwed up our plan to go ALTERNATE SHOT. They then proceeded to take the first two holes w/ a par and birdie. But J&S fought back to even after 6 with pars on 5 (Joe) and par on 6 (Steve). Steve proceeded to get real hot and we were up 3 after 9. Steve shit 39 0n front. Joe birdied 10 and parred 11 and we were up 4. Steve continued to play well and Hank & Steve had some difficulties putting. We used the Nassau format hoping to take some points but we took all 12. Going to be an interesting year
