Leagues & Tourneys / 2016 Shittiest Luck Award
« Last post by TonyD on September 27, 2016, 03:19:48 PM »
I didn't see a post started on here yet so I thought I would take the liberty to start one. I posted this on facebook and have copied to share on here for the 2016 Shittiest Luck Award:
I think that I have had shittier luck this year than last. I ruptured my meniscus in march just as I was starting to get in shape for the season. Due to the ass dragging of the doctors and insurance, I had to wait until the end of July to have my knee surgically repaired. Of course that is the best time to be golfing both in tourneys and leagues as well as just for fun. For me, it was watching it on you tube while waiting for my knee to heel. I had to drop out of every tournament I registered to play with the exception of 2: IOS: Pitner Memorial at Channahon and Illinois State Championship. After playing my best round ever at the Canyons at State, I had a realistic shot at getting my first trophy. With 6 holes left to play at Highland I slipped and fell landing on my elbow. I was pretty much done at that point dropping 9 strokes on the last 5 holes to finish 10th in novice :( that was the last time I played before my surgery. I had to drop the rest of the IOS, Ledgestone, Indiana State, just to name a few. I am finally heeled enough to play, to a certain limit. I cannot do stairs well yet so I cannot play Highland at all, which is heartbreaking being one of my favorite courses. I was ready to play the Channahon Classic on my birthday too 9/25......until I got pneumonia, which I am currently battling while I post this. Since the surgery, the only courses I have been able to play are Rivals in Wilmington and old smokey in Braidwood. The shittiest part about the knee injury, I had a great job that i loved so much and when I told them about having to get surgery done, after coming into work for 4 months barely able to walk and busting my ass every day, they decided that they didn't want to wait 6-8 weeks for me to return and let me go. All that i can do is keep my head up and hope for the best. I have my sights set on Echo in October. Lets hope the luck changes for the better before then, I cant take much more if the shitty.

Unfortunately glow leagues will have to be postponed/cancelled until further notice. Adam Brkovic has informed me that he will not be able to commit to helping out this year, and with my work schedule it will be nearly impossible without having another body there to help me out every Friday, or to take on my responsibilities on some Fridays I could not be there. I'm truly sorry to get everyone's hopes up for this season only to be let down. I'm working on finding someone else to help me out but it's not looking promising. I will let everyone know the word if I am able to start leagues back up at a later date. So until further notice,  lights After dark is cancelled.

WEEK 24- September 14, 2016
Second Half #11
West Park, Joliet, IL

18 Holes Par 54  Holes 1-5 and 12-24 short tees
The night started out with a very pleasant 73 degrees. The sky was clear and the winds were out of the NE at around 10 mph. The temp dropped to a very nice 68 degrees by the end of the night. The course was dry and played well. It was a perfect night for disc golf.


• Steve “Fern” Forneris and Kris “Big Hutt” Hutter take the top spot by destroying the field by two strokes. They ended up shooting a fantastic round of 38 (-16). With this win they both make huge moves to grab one of the top fours spots for the second half. With only two weeks left it should be a great finish.

• Matt “Riphizer” Ogg & Scott “The Gambler” Dietz win the playoff with a great Ogg putt to seal the deal. They end up shooting a great round of 42 (-12) and take the first place victory.

• Don’t forget tomorrow is Fotoshop Friday!
The Original Spice Girls are coming to town.

• Shout out to Dave Kociuba for helping out again.

• Thanks David Jumpy Hopkins for bringing your basket for hole 23.

Fern and Hutt take the top honors and split 104 bucks. Kevin Macuiba and Izak McDonald shoot a great round of 40 (-14) and take second place alone and split 58 bucks. Kevin increases his second half lead while Imac creeps toward a top four finish. Kevin also keeps himself alive in the overall standings. We had a tie for third with the teams shooting great rounds of 41 (-13). Steve Rachan & John Dale win the ctp playoff on hole #1 and take third place and split $28. Rachan now moves into a tie for second place for the second half.


Riphizer Ogg & The Gambler Dietz take first and split 54 bucks. Ron Dawson and Dave Garb take the second spot in the three way playoff for first and take home 13 bucks each. Garb closes in a top four finish for the second half. Dawson creeps up in the overall standings and needs to finish the last two weeks with a couple of big wins. Dustin Vilt and Kory Seddon take the third spot and split 15 bucks. Kory extends his second half lead by five points going into the final two weeks and he takes a half point lead in the overall standings. A lot of old fashion thrash talking going with only two Wednesdays left of the year.

Randy Bruemmer - CTP Party Fund hole #2= $34
John Dale - CTP Party Fund hole2 #13 = $34
Kris Hutter - CTP Tourney Fund hole #24  = $34
