J-TOWN DOUBLES WEEK 3 RESULTS 2016
WEEK 3 - April 20, 2016
First Half #3
Trinity Links, Lockport


TEES
Short Tees 18 Holes - Par 54
 
CONDITIONS
The night started out at around 69 degrees with a slight drizzle and south winds blowing at around 10mph. The drizzle turned into heavier rain throughout the night and mores steadily towards the end. The temperature also dropped to the mid 50s making it a miserable ending. The course is in great condition and it looks fantastic


NOTES
• Trinity Links has come a long way these last few years. A huge THANK YOU goes out to all the guys who have busted their ass working on this course. There’s been a  lot of blood, sweat, tears and heart put into making this course great. I’m just glad to say it’s one of our home courses.

• Once again The Swamps of Trinity ate many discs, but at least no one fell in this time. Although the water is actually very clear nowaday The rakes definitely got a workout.

• Thanks guys for letting us use the Trinity Links club house for registration. It was great to stay nice and dray all night and not have to worry about the weather elements. This makes a huge difference when getting things ready. Every course needs one.

• Reunion Year!
 We also had many new faces that we hope will continue to show up each week. We also hope that the familiar faces that weren’t there will make their way back and be part of this year’s league.
Reunion Year! 


• Bobby “Bobby J” Johnson and Ben “Benny Boom” Carrescia put on a putting clinic and easily take care of the pro/adv division. They ended up shooting a fantastic round of 41(-13).

• John “Cosmo” Hynek and  Dave “Jumpy” Hopkins destroy the am/nov division by two strokes. They shot a great round of 46 (-8). This is Dave’s second win in a row.

• Shout out to Taco Lady.

• Shout to Dave Kociuba for all his help. He has been an extremely vital part of our league these last few year.

• Shout out to Angela Del Sasso & Gabi Metzger for coming out and battling with the boys.

Tony Dabuliskis brought out is son Matt out for the second week in a row and ends up being partners with him both times. What are the odds.

We had some players that haven’t been out in couple or few years make the way back. It was great to see John Carbonaro, Faban Gonzalez, Aaron Studer, Ryan Hoffman, Ben Carrescia, Steve Slater, Chris Peters & Jon Vargo make their way out for Reunion Year! Most of them are probably going to be regulars again. We even seen Roy Bazan walking his dogs around the park. We also had many new faces that we hope will continue to show up each week. We also hope that the familiar faces that weren’t there will make their way back and be part of this year’s league.
Reunion Year!

J-TOWN DOUBLES WEEK 1 RESULTS 2016
WEEK 1 - April 6, 2016
First Half #1
West Park-Joliet


TEES
Short Tees 18 Holes - Par 54
Holes played: 1-5 and 12-24
 

CONDITIONS
It was a winter/spring type night with temps only around 46- 48 degrees all night. It rained/drizzled before, during and after the round.  Winds were steady at around 8-10 mph with gust into the 20 mph range. The course was in decent shape considering all the rain through out the day. I have to say it was a kind of a miserable night.

NOTES
• Reunion Year!
It was great to see everyone again. We had many new faces that we hope will continue to show up each week. We also hope that the familiar faces that weren’t there will make their way back and be part of this year’s league.
We miss you! 


• Chris “Crispy” Brenholtz and Bobby “Bobby J” Johnson shoot a ridiculous 38 (-16) to easily clam the first night of 2016’s Pro/Adv Division. Considering the muddy and wet conditions their round was extremely impressive. They make the first big jump on the leader board!

• Ronnie “Dawsey” Dawson draws Cali and puts an old fashion whipping’ on the youngsters. Ron shoots a fantastic round of 42 (-12) to claim the first night of 2016’s Am/Nov Division. Nice Shooting Ron!

 • Shout out to everyone who came out in and braved the less than ideal weather.

• Shout to Ron Dawson’s enormous umbrella. That thing can cover truck.

When playing West Park in the mud pull your shoe chains down to the middle of your shoe instead of leaving them at the top. This will still let you pivot your foot while gaining needed traction.
