Today I look back on Erin Hemmings performance and I am in awe. With a field of 10 paying players and 1 adding to his list of tourney scores, Erin beat the field by 12 strokes. Yes, there were only 18 holes on the course. I played my guts out. If it were a still day, I might be upset about the near misses, the chain-outs or even the double bogey melt-down. It was not a still day. It was a windy day. It was a very windy day. Reports showed 35kt. gusts from the NNW. After finishing my round and seeing a +3 handicapped score, I took stock in my opponents. It was going to take an even or under round for most of the players to beat me. I knew I had my card beat and Nate Dogg looked to be the best bet for competition. Erin, with a -8 handicap was out of the picture, in my assessment. I could not have been more wrong. -10! -2 handicapped! Beat the field by 12 strokes and handicapped score by 3 (Nate Doggy Dog scored +3 which left him a +1 handi (impressive)). Jim and I tied at +2. You accept mistakes in these conditions. As a frolfer, you know the risk for running at the basket in the wind, so you play conservative, try to protect your score. Erin shot a -10. Congrats to him and everyone else who showed up and played their hearts out.

wow first off i got to say that this picture of vinnie with a condom on his head is priceless ive added to my phone so when vinnie calls it pops up. so ill do a breif recap of tourney with none of the creative writing skills of some of the previous recaps, seemed like there was not a lot of great scores out there in the south wind. Vinnie took home the loot with 5 under his handy playing a consistent and solid round, i know my game sure wasnt on, G had a hot round with seven down and was gracious enough not to tease me about taking my bag tag, erin only shot 10 down geez he sucks j/k, jimmers tried for the threepeat but could not pull it off, there was a three way tie for 2nd with jeremy, j cobb, and G$ all tied with 3 below there handi, and i believed weve come to some rough group consensus to maybe add a new playoff hole to be more fair for right and left handed players, we will have to work out some details but i think its a good idea.

Just an idea for the club. Lots of fun courses your way that would be a great set up for this format. I have attended a few of these and hosted a similar event. Both attending and hosting were fun and easy. http://discgolfacerace.com/ here is a link to the specifics of the event. You can sell Mulligans to raise money for the club as well. Hope you are all doing well and kick some major inland ace at the Pro/Am Jam.

I just signed up, and the thing is already two-thirds full, with momentum gaining. We need a FULL CREW of MCFCers to take over that joint, pillage the winnings, and fully REPRESENT! I only saw a handful of our peeps on the list: Davey, Derrick, G, and Erin. I probably missed a few of you whose full names I don't know, but make sure your name is on that list! The link to the list already offically signed up is here:
The link to sign up NOW is here:
And below is the flyer. Too much fun to miss! WOOOOP.

Wow, incredibly cool, Jim won. Awesome!
On my behalf, I will say that it was a good round. Not only a bogie-free 11 under, but an 11 under without birdieing holes 3, 13, or 15--three of the shortest easiest holes on the course. The longest putt I made all day was maybe 20 feet. On days like that, it's an easy game. And it leaves you wondering...why isn't it easy every time? Or even the majority of times??
Anyway, yay for Jim. See ya Sunday, when I will no doubt be back to normal...
Well I Have to say Jim kinda stole my thunder. I was all ready to write up this amazing recap of the Sunday tourney, culminating in the grand revelation that the winner was Jim!! At eleven down!!!
So you already know that. I also wanted to post this really cool Stanford logo on the top (which looks like s#$t) and then change the text color to black ,so you could read it (but failed). Webmaster help me!!!
Anyway so it was a really great day. It was really sunny and not that windy. There were 14 of us playing, in four groups. I can tell you in my group, Patrick played the best round, which included 7 birdies on the front nine. Unfortunately for him, there was a couple of double thrown in as well. Greg shot -6, and Rye Bread -5, which left smiles on there faces.
In the end, our group ended first, followed by two more. Inexplicably, Jim's group had like 7 more holes to play. So we all sat around for like 45 minutes while they played, lost discs, and took their sweet time. Two Ukiahians, Patrick (at 4 under handi) and George (at 5 under handi) sat in the cool coastal breeze, waiting patiently to collect their first and second place prize. Little did they know that in the gangle of laggards, Jim was quietly ripping the course a new a-hole. He sauntered up, took $60, and left as the champ on this day.
Winners of CTPs were Me, and I think Jeremy and Jim (correct me if I am wrong)
OK should I post scores here or just enter them in the spread sheet. (sorry I am new to the club)
