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.


PLAYERS
33 Players
16  PRO/ADV     17 AM/NOV
 
TOP THREE
PRO/ADV

Brenholtz and B.Johnson take the top honors. They end up splitting 90 bucks. They take the early lead on leader board. Leo Borowski & Ryan Gremillion take second place shooting a great round of 39 (-15). They end up splitting 50 bucks and grabbing 3 points. Rounding out the top three were Tom Matesevac & Steve Rachan. They shot a very nice round of 41 (-13) and end up splitting 34 bucks. 


TOP THREE
AM/NOV

Dawson takes the top honors. He ends up taking home $50 and sits all alone at the top of the early leader board. Kory Seddon & Marc Borowski take second place winning the ctp playoff on hole 24. They end up splitting $20 and grab 3-points. Dave Hopkins and Ryan Barcas settle for third splitting 15 bucks. The teams shot great rounds of 43 (-11).

CTPS
Nick Cora- CTP Party Fund hole #2= $31
Tom Matesevac- CTP Party Fund hole2 #13 = $31
Scott Dietz- CTP Tourney Fund hole #21  = $29
Ray Hill - CTP CFR Disc hole #23
 
ACE
No Aces $33 to start next week
 
BIG MONEY NIGHT
Pro/Adv
Tom Matesevac takes third and also hits a money ctp. He takes home $48 for the night.
Am/Nov
Ronnie D wins first place alon and take home $50.

PRO TIP OF THE WEEK
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.

 
Next Week -COMMUNITY PARK, CHANNAHON
DON’T FORGET 4:15 REGISTRATION AND 5:15 START!!
SHORT TEES
See You Later,
Jesse

Courses / Highland Park Work Day Saturday MARCH 26 2016
« Last post by Mcfrolfer on March 18, 2016, 07:53:02 AM »
Howdy all. On Saturday, March 26th 2016, there will be some work going on at Highland. The rough plan for the day is to REMOVE the basket for 12, then replace it with the basket from 15. A sleeve will then be installed for a NEW position and NEW basket on 15. This is a fairly labor intensive task and any help throughout the day would be greatly appreciated. We have some tools but bringing your own is suggested. We will mainly need shovels and rakes, maybe a wheelbarrow or 2. So far it is me, Jason Poole and Gary Lewis for the work crew. We will be out there early so if you have some free time pop on by =).
