Hi everyone, here our the results from yesterday WSS.  We did not do well and have dug ourselves a little hole.  We need to step it up a bit.  Next match is June 10 at Dahlgren at 12:30pm start.
Acting Captain Joe Sicora

From the League Secretary:

Hi guys. The results from today’s event are attached. But some highlights:
1. George Perovich – hole in one on #14.
2. Bill Anderson – medalist with an even par 71.
3. Four skins @$67 each: Tim Kratzke, ER, on #1; George Perovich, WM, on #6 and #14; John Boyle, BC, on #4.
4. Team results:
   Bent Creek- 35.5
   Elk River      -34.0
   Island View-27.5
   Wild Marsh -22.5
   Monticello   -17.0
   Fox Hollow  -16.5
   Dahlgreen    -15.0
5. Closest to Pin:
  #2 ( pos 5-8 ) Tom Miles- DG
  #8 ( pos 1-4 ) Scott Holt -ER
  #14 ( pos 1-4 ) Bill Anderson- BC
#17 ( pos 5-8 ) Morgan White
Golf balls for closest to pin and 1st & 2nd place by position will be given out at the next event as well as cash for big skins. The STRIB received our results. Hopefully it will be published on Friday or Saturday.
Please remember to inform your players that the closest to pin holes are divided into groups by position: 1-4 and 5-8.
In addition, WSS will use the out of bounds option of: two stroke penalty and playing from point where the ball first crossed the boundary line….or re-play from original spot which previously was the only choice. This new rule is a course option but  we will employ it for all events this year for consistency. The MGA Senior Tour uses this approach.
Enjoy each day, especially if you are on the golf course>

Team results for the day at Dahlgreen!  Wow what a difficult day and course. The greens were slick and every pin stuck in a corner with gusty winds as well. They must have thought this was the US Open!! Tree lined fairways and some tough rough. I believe a lot of players were having issue with finding golf balls as well. This week we were 5th of 7 teams and not dead last. A nice improvement for sure.
Thanks to you that played and paid!
See you soon,
 Stone Cold Bad Bob
From the league secretary:
Dahlgreen was a test. We played summer rules and had a little higher average scoring than usual. However, Brad Grupa was medalist with a 4 over par 76 and BC and ER remain at the top with 65.5 and 64.5 points respectively.
 A.Closest to the pin:
#2  Mark Ferber, FH
#6  George Theisen, WM
#12 John Walters, BC
#14 Mark Ferber, FH
B. Skins:
Fifty four entrants and 5 skins is $54 per skin:
Terry Goblirsh, BC,on #4 and #5
Mike White, ER, on #6
Bob Anderson, BC, on #8
Mark Ferber, FH, on #14
C. A couple additional items:
  1. Our minimum age is 50 ( turn 50 by last regular season event  Aug 20 in 2019)
  2. The maximum course handicap will be calculated to be 18 ( therefore a 20        course hcp at our next event will be “R” to an 18 and only applies to those in the 7-8 net best ball position.
   3. I will have golf balls and skin money from Dahlgreen for winners at Fox             Hollow on June 25.
Thanks for everyones cooperation with the payment to the host club. It went well.
A big thank you to Brian and Dan for doing the tabulations.
See you at Fox Hollow on June 25,
Wayne

From The Captain.
On a windy or should I say hurricane force winds at the Fox Hollow Golf Club we hosted the West Side Senior event. Mother nature must have been mad at the old guys as they could not pick up their feet on the greens. The putting green survived 50 kids in the morning but could not survive the old guys. They were great at making scuff marks and not replacing divots!! Shoes must be to heavy!!
We ended up 5th of 7 teams and did not defend our turf in real time or other! There were some great (sand) scores posted and the course itself was beautiful. A special thanks to Cory for presenting the Fox in all her glory. Also a special thanks to Eric and his staff for treating and hosting us with pride and honor!!
Make it a great day!
Your fearless leader,
 Stone Cold Bad Bob

From The Captain
A few items this morning. Island view lost a valued member and a founder George Offtilie at 81 years old. Some of you will know the name as his son Stu has played in several events. It is always hard and sad when we loose good men!
The results will be posted on our web site soon. Mr. Pratley was co-medalist with a 74 and getting 7 points as the third player. Payne and Horvath each with 75 received 6 points as the #1 & #2 players. Mr. Heitkamp former Monticello member had 77 and 6 points.
Our gross best ball team of Beal and Ness were in the middle with 3 points and Net best ball Lee and Hoskins with 4.5 points. With our second place finish behind Elk River we have vaulted into 4th place with 2 events left Wild Marsh and Island view.
Sorry Darrell NO skins for you!! Looks like we sacrificed skins for points!
Make it a great day!
Your fearless leader,
 Stone Cold Bad Bob

Well I hate to say it but yesterday was our worst performance of the season. We garnered a whole 14 points (Last place) for the day and dropped to 5th place. The regular season is now over and just the Year end event is left to play.
This year it will be at Wild Marsh and we can bring 10 players. Golf Dinner and awards for $45.00 a player. Thank you for playing and there is always next season.
