Did you miss the Member-Guest Invitational Champion play-off on Sunday afternoon? Well it may not have been The US Open at Chambers Bay, but there was
excitement and drama as Candido Ivey, Brad Mueller's guest, chipped in from about 80 feet out on Hole #16!
Congratulations to Brad Mueller and Candido Ivey on their victory as the 2015 Member-Guest Invitational Champion. To commemorate their championship victory they were both presented monogrammed and framed
pictures of the Lone Tree Golf Course.
Jeff Reser and guest, Jim Johnson, Doug Moore and his son, Nick, and Jeff Bright and his guest, Jerry Gutierrez, played valiantly, but could not overcome Candido's 8 point eagle shot on Hole #16.
Congratulations also to all the teams in the Hogan Flight who took a chance that the Overall Member-Guest Champion would come from the Hogan Flight for their victory in the Flight Winners Pot. Each team will receive a check for $60 for your well placed wager.
We finally played our rescheduled CGA Interclub Match with South Suburban on Friday, June 26th, and tied 18-18 in a hard fought match!
We had some shining moments as Bill McDermott birdied 3 holes on the front nine at Lone Tree GC firing a solid 38. As Mike Anderson commented, Bill's opponent was in total shock! Randy Gaddis had his hands full at South Suburban GC as he fired a solid even par 72 and lost to James Kurtenbach who fired an outstanding 2 under 70. Jim Juracka and Bob Berning also shot some outstanding scores winning their matches at South Suburban GC!
We are currently evaluating all the players who submitted their names for the upcoming match with The Meadows GC on Friday, July 17th.
As of this point in the round robin matches involving our group, the standings are as follows:
Lone Tree Men's Club 47
The Meadows Men's Club 35
South Suburban Men's Club 35
Saddle Rock/Murphy Creek Men's Club 27
So, we are doing well headed into our third match but we need to play tough to remain at the top. The team with the most points after these round robin matches within our group, advances to the Playoffs which commence in the latter part of August.
We'll keep you posted!
Jim Eliassen, Captain
Bill McDermott, Assistant Captain
