Comments: It was a beautiful Friday at Bellport The format was best ball total. The match was even thru 4 ,then Bud and Bill began a great ham and egg run and Rich and Tony had a shit run with more sevens than a hot craps game.
After 9 Bill and Bud won the front and were up 6 at the turn for the 18. Rich and Tony woke up and battled back with their own ham and egg run. As amazing as possible we ended up on the 18th tee box even for the back and even for the press as Bill and Bud won the 18 on 17. So they had 4 points in hand if they win the 18th they take 8 points and our weekend is ruined, this was pressure.All four players hit good tee shots. Shots to get to the green were also good . So here it is the pressure putts begin , and Rich steps up and sinks a perfect par putt to win the hole while everyone else bogeyed to take 4 points for the Rich Tony team. I still don't know what the hell happened but we halved the match. Hats off to old man river Oops I mean Bud for a great 85...... In the end the drinks were great.. see you soon Tony

Comments: We played Best Ball at Bellport, the apparent club of choice for most of our league members.....the last time Tom E played here as a guest last year he backed over some members pull cart and bought him his early Christmas gift for his error in backing up before looking....where the hell is the warning beep beep on the clubs golf carts.......now on to the match...we played Mike D and Dennis who appeared ready to go as Tom E pulled into the parking lot on 2 wheels, no practice swings or putts with minutes to our 12:30 tee time....no problem Billy and Tommy were +3 after 5 holes looking good, but little did I realize Billy required a Budweiser every 3 holes and we started to falter and ended up +1 winning the front. Not to worry but Billy never said he was thirsty and therefore did not stop at the restaurant/bar to refill his Budweiser requirement (Tom E was drinking water.trying to be the responsible partner) but Billy did not say he needed a boost so we went on to the 10th. We went +2 thru 12 and Mike and Dennis came alive getting the older guys back to even after 14 and the dog fight began. Tom E got it back to +1 on 16 but the lack of Budweisers had a resounding devastating effect on Billy and Tommy........but we managed to keep the match to Even thru 18 winning the front and the overall by 1. Mike D said it best "that it was an enjoyable round" Dennis struggled but was his usual gentleman self...Tom and Billy hung in there and were most fortunate by halving 18 to win the match. Good to be back guys, had a lot of fun.

Comments: This was the Steve & John Show! Brian giving a ton of strokes and not having his normal A game, but his team mate carried the heavy load. John was hitting the ball long and straight and so was Steve. Steve and Joe finally took the lead on the front nine at 8 and won the front up 2. John & Brian jumped ahead on 10 and 11 only to have Joe (finally) sink a bird to win 12. John & Brian took and kept the lead until 16, then Steve and Joe ham & Egged three parrs to win the match. Still Too Cold at Bellport! but the company and competition was great.!

Comments: The format was best ball. Rich & Tony got off to quick start winning 3 out of the first 4 holes and won the front easily. The back was a different story. Everyone shit the bed! Dennis & Mike won the back on the 17th hole. The match was up for grabs on 18 with Rich & Tony up 1. The 18th was halved with double bogies. I won't go into details but it was quite ugly. Pretty sad ending but Rich & Tony took the match & 6 points

Comments: We played the match at the Vineyard GC (Best Ball). It was the initial match of the season for both teams. Tom & Billy couldn't get it going on the front, while Chris and Mike took a commanding +5 after nine. They continued their good play and closed-out the overall match 7&6, which set up a 6 hole press.
Did I mention the wind conditions...on the back 9 the wind was howling with gusts around 40 mph. It was hard to even stand over some of the putts. However, the press went back and forth, with Tom & Billy finding their game. It came down to the 18th where Tom, getting a stroke, won it with a 5/4. Chris and Mike won the front, back and overall. We all had a great time.

Comments: Well the new guys got initiated into the League! Front nine Joe & Steve overwhelmed +3 after nine. We felt all we had to do was coast! Well then Steve & Hank decided it was time to play. Steve hit drives straight and true 300 + yards and began to figure out the putts and Hank was steady as a rock hit long drives (by our standards but well short of Steve) and chipping and putting lights out. Well we underwhelmed to lose the back nine and eighteen only to salvage the press for a split and a "kiss your sister" event. Gentlemen watch out for this team!!! Great fun and great set of guys joined our league.
