Comments: Format - Best ball - Best ball. Another beautiful day at Bellport! At the start, Chris explained that the goal today was to have fun. We fulfilled that goal today. The match was pretty even throughout the day with Chris/Mike up a point and a half most of the day. On the Par 3, 14th hole, John/Brian both hit the green in regulation and both scored a 3 pulling to 1/2 of a point behind. On 17, Brian shot a 4 to take the lead for the first time. And then on 18, Brian parred and John beat Mike with a score of 8 to beat Mike's 9. It was a competitive and tough round but our goal was met and fun was had by all!!!

Comments: A rare day in Bellport, just a slight breeze all day. Bill/Bud choose, best ball, tie breaker. Brian/John won the first hole. Bud/Bill won the second hole. Brian/John won the third hole. Bud/Bill won the fourth hole. You get the picture. It stayed that way till the 11th hole, Brian sank a 40' birdie putt to put them up by 2 holes and they never gave it back. The whole day was the John Natale show with John driving and putting his way to a score of 88. He was too much to overcome. A great day of golf and playing with great competitors.

Comments: Best Ball at Vineyards on a windy day. Joe seemed to regain his mojo and he and Steve worked their Ham & Egg magic!! THe duo was up 4 after 6 but Tom and Billie fought back to down 2 after 9. Joe & Steve got back to 4 up after 13and thought the match was over on 14 when we both parred but Tommy sunk a snake for a birdie. Joe & Steve parred alternating holes but Billie kept up the pace with his parrs. The match ended on 16 and J&S won the press on the last hole. Great match. Lots of Fun and WIND!!!

Comments: WE played Best Ball - Total. Shades of Days Gone By!! The classic matches we always had was replicated today. Weather terrible as always?, No wait it was 72 degrees and sunny with light winds; I guess were not use to that!! We all brought great levels of Mediocrity. Match was see sawing the front nine to be even after nine. Then Steve and Joe took a 3 point lead after 13 but was back to plus 1 when Rich parred the 14th parr 3. We went even through 16 then Tony made a beautiful shot out of the sand on 17 and Rich followed up with a good chip and putt to take the hole. Looked bad for the previous Champs but we somehow pulled out a parr (Steve) and boggie (Joe) against a boggie and double to halve the whole match. Great tension and battle!!!

Comments: Match played at The Vineyards-Steve sent me a text the morning of the match to have my game face on. Course was in good shape, breezy but not windy.
and I guess he was feeling pretty good........and well he should, he was as long off the tee as I have ever seen him. Even if he got into the fescu or the bunker, no problem he made some terrific recovery shots. It was the Steve C show for the first 4 holes and then as Steve said"my partner is waking up soon" and he did indeed.........Billy and myself had a lackluster round and I even got 4 more Budweisers for our cart to get Billy around in the fashion he is used to....didn't help as his putter let him down again. Tom did not have anything going for him, missed a birdie putt on hole #2 and it went downhill for the day from there. Steve and Hank were ham and egging it all day but they really did not have to as they both played very well. Fun guys to play with Tom E

Comments: Format was Best ball. Tom showed up a 1/2 hour late which threw off everyone's game as can be seen by the scores.
Rich & Tony got off to an early lead and were plus 3 at the turn. Bill & Tom had a chance to come back but Billy' putter failed him when he missed 2 crucial putts.
R&T closed it out on 16, The press was halved when Tom's bogey on 18 won the hole.
Tom's strategy to piss off Rich & Tony by showing up a half hour late unfortunately did not work. We overheard Tom & Bill discussing their strategy for the next match.
Tom- "I think we should drink more beer next time."
Bill- "Definitely"

Comments: A coin toss over the phone won by Steve and Hank they chose Swan Lake, their home course. Once handicaps were settled on the first tee we went off on a best ball format. The tone was set on hole 1 when Steve and Hank made Frank put a 6 inch putt for bogey, yes he made it but from there on there was no such thing as a gimmy. We think that sparked Frank to rev up his game as he went low and as it turned out he had to as the match went to 18 with Frank and Dan up by 1. It was back and forth all day. Frank who was sinking putts from everywhere just missed a 6 ft down hill left to right by a mere millimeter. Hank had a 6ft uphill putt that he left on the lip to win the hole. Steve stepped up to his 3ft to win the hole and missed as well. Maybe if he gave Frank the putt on hole 1 he may not have had to putt....just maybe!!!! Great match...The 19th hole confirmed Joe's earlier assessment of the barmaid she is spectacular. She will be at swan Lake all summer on Wed!!!!!

Comments: The format was best ball tie breaker chosen by Mike and Dennis. There was not much positive to say about today. It was cold, cloudy and I felt like I was playing in a wind tunnel. The scores sort of tell it all. Congrats to Mike to have the low score of 99. As far as the match, Bill and Bud were up 4 at the turn. Dennis and Mike won 10 and 11 to bring it to 2. Bud and Bill stayed either 2 or 3 up to 15 when Bill and Bud were up 3 with 3 to go Dennis and Mike won 16 and tied on 17 and the match was over with a 1 hole press on 18 which everyone was hitting into the wind. Mike and Dennis won 18 for the press. I think everyone was glad it was over and hit the bar.

Comments: The format was Best Ball. Bellport greens are still recovering and not as fast as expected. Both teams halved the first two holes. H&S went +1 on hole #3 and halved #4. H&S then ham and egged a string of pars on #5, #6, #7 and went +4 after 9 holes. M&D tried to make something happen on the back but ran out of holes. Match was over after hole #15 and the press was over on hole #17. Beautiful day...Better days ahead for Mike and Dennis.

Comments: We played best ball after a flip of a coin which Bill and I won. It was a rough day for Rich and Tony. Rich has a cold and was not feeling great. Tony did not play his usual game. The match was over on hole #12. The press was then a 6 hole match. The press was over on hole #17. All I can say is the drinks and chicken wings were better than the game. It was at least a beautiful day. Rich hit some great drives and I am sure Tony and Rich have better days ahead of them.

Comments: The format was Best Ball and Rock Hill was in excellent condition.
Hank & Steve started out winning the first two hole thanks to Hanks pars. After 4 holes H&S were +1. Then it kind of fell apart for Chris and Mike...loosing the next 3 hole to go -4. Mike then decided to take a break from golf and fortunately Chris keep it at the level through 11.
Then it really got interesting...C&M won 5 of the next 6 holes to even the match through 17. Mike actually returned from his hiatus and had 4 pars through that stretch. On 18 Chris crushed his drive and Mike was in the fairway trap. Steve topped his drive and Hank was in play. It finally came down to putts, as it usually does. Steve was about 50' below the hole and Mike was about 15' hole high. You can guess what happened...Steve sunk the bomb and Mike came up about 5 ' short. All you can do is tip your hat to Steve and think of what might have been.

Comments: Golf course was in really good shape especially for early in the season!! Format was Best Ball. The new rules came into play many times during the round. It started at hole #1 when Tony was in the greenside bunker and got to rake and place. However he hit it short of the green but continued to chip it in the hole for a par 4. Dan matched his 4 with a more traditional on in regulation and 2 putt. Match on...Frank than ran off 4 pars in a row to put his team up +3 after 5 holes. At the turn they were 1 up. Dan won 10 and Frank won 11 to back to +3. Tony and Rich hung in there and got it to +1 with 2 Hail Mary's...Rich had a 50 foot putt and decided to keep the flag in and it was a good thing as he hit the flag and it went in the hole. As Tony said if it didn't hit the flag it would have been off the green on the other side of the green. Than Tony chipped in again for a Birdie 2 at hole #14. Than Dan won the next 2 holes to close out the match +3after 16. Frank and Dan went on to win the press for the total of 10 points. Needless to say we are happy to be back.

Comments: Best Ball-Tie Breaker. Swan Lake - a beautiful course, however greens bumpy! Dennis was on fire Birdie attempt on first just missed, then birdied second hole. S&J down 2. Stayed between down 2 and 1 thru 9 w/ J&S down 2 at turn. J&S won next 2 out of 3 to be even. J&S pulled ahead to up 2 w/ 2 to go. Lost 17 and halved 18 to win it all. Putting was the problem for both teams. Once these greens come in this is a nice course. On a side note, new dynamite Bar Maid. All I can say is her attributes were magnificent! On another side note, played 2019 rules, first sand trap there was no rake!!!! Need clarification on the drop area for OB.
