2010 Season Results and Latest News


Second Half of Season Ends With Thrilling Finish

What an exciting final round of competion in the league this year!  The winners of two of the flights were determined in the last week of play.  Congratulations to the second half champions of each flight:  Bob Walters in the A flight, Rick Manilla in the B flight and Janice Schwanbeck in the C flight.  Janice won the last special event of the year, by carding a net birdie on the 18th hole, beating Denny Lieb in the handicap tiebreaker.

Our end-of-year outing is all set for Tam O'Shanter Golf Course on Sunday, September 19, with the first tee time scheduled for 11:00 am.  Send an e-mail message to cindricbb@mountunion.edu to let us know if you plan to play in the outing, and with whom you would like to play that day.  After golf, we'll go to Quaker Steak and Lube for food and a drink or two on the league, and prizes galore!

All Flight Races Still In Doubt; Manilla wins Stableford Tourney

With only one week left in the second half of 2010 league competition, the races for the flight championships are too close to call in all three flights.  After tying in their match this week, Annette Manilla and Janice Schwanbeck remained tied for the lead in the C flight, so it all comes down to the last night of league action in that race!  Annette was the winner of the Stableford Tournament special event with a score of +4 points; Blase Cindric took the runner-up spot with +3 points. All of the results from league play on August 24 can be viewed by clicking the links at the left or top of this page.

Watch your e-mail for announcements about the End-of-Season golf outing, and keep Sunday, September 19 open on your calendars for the outing.

Flights Going Down to the Wire With Only Two Weeks Remaining

The second-half competition for the top three spots in each flight are still anyone's for the taking.  Bob Walters extended his lead in the A flight by firing a blistering two-under gross score of 34.  Four other players are within 6 points of second place in the A flight.  Pat Cindric saw her lead shrink in the B flight standings, although it looks like the top three spots will probably go to Pat, Rick Manilla and Jim Stevenson, not necessarily in that order (but you never know!).  There is now a tie for the lead in the C flight, as Annette Manilla drew even with Janice Schwanbeck after play in the August 17 round.  Amy White is hanging close in Flight C.  View all results from Week 16 of league play by using the links at the top or left of this page.

We're still working out the details for the end-of-season league outing in September.  The date will be Sunday, September 19, but the location, cost, etc. have yet to be determined.  More news to be announced soon....

Gardners Go the Longest Without a Net Bogey; Flight Races Still Up For Grabs

With just three weeks left in the season, there are five or six players in each flight who still have a really good chance of finishing in the top three places.  In this week's special event, Diane Gardner and Veronica Gardner both made it to # 4 before making a net bogey, which was the best result of anyone who played on Tuesday; Diane was the event winner on the tie-breaker, with Veronica as the runner-up.  All results from the August 10 round of league play are viewable by clicking the links at the top and/or left.

Shoenfelt outlasts Walters in Sudden-Death Playoff event
