July 17
Weapons of Grass Destruction (353) win for the second week in a row. Fairway to Heaven (354) takes second place. And Steady Eddys (360) ended up in last place this week. Roughneckers and Stan's Army ignominiously tied at 359 are only one point better. In the overall Standings Steady Eddy's(225) keeps the lead despite this week's slide to the bottom of the weekly ranking. Now fourteen points ahead, they take a pretty firm grip on that lead due in part to excellent 'Participation' numbers and the avoidance of any 'Ties'.

Ryan Amyot celebrated his 32nd birthday by sharing the Low Gross Honours with Steve Coffey. Both men shot a spectacular gross 33. Ryan might credit the round to his birthday present; a newly acquired Callaway Epic Flash Driver.  This was a season-best for Coff and a second time around 33 for Ryan. 

Steve Coffey's Low Net 31 gives him the coveted Low Gross/Low Net Double. D.J Selkirk and Lloyd Wilson were one stroke back at 32 to share a worthy Low Net second. It was Coff's night for sure holing a 30'1" putt on #9 for a $70 Pin. 

PINS ($77)
Hole 1 Phil Carleton 5'5", Hole 2 Urb Vanbendegem 1'6", Hole 4 Keg Mike Osborn, Hole 5 John Cho 15'9", Hole 6 Rick Burns 29'6", Hole 8 Larry MacLean 1'6", Hole 9 Steve Coffey 30'1".

50/50 Draw Winner: Brian Booth wins $102

Corey Feenstra's birdie on #6 gave him the lone skin worth $126 in the +3 to 4 Flight. Urb Vanbendegem must be very surprised to discover that he had the only deuce on #8  in Gross Flight 5 to 7 thus winning a skin worth $43.80. Andrew Warwick didn't win a skin this week in the Skins Net Flight 11 to 20 but must still be glowing in the aftermath of last week's rare to near impossible feat: A NET ONE on #16. For which he earned $12. Ah well, money isn't everything! 

Bill Henry had a solo deuce in Deuce Pot Gross Flight 8 to 10 to win the tidy sum of $46. The Hole In One is the  'elephant' in the League Night room . Now worth over $4000 we all are thinking 'When is this going to happen?' This week Urb and Larry recorded identical proximity distances, 1'6", on #2 and #8.Close but no cigar!

Dog Days of Summer!
Weapons of Grass Destruction (322) eclipsed the field week eight. Birdie Boyz (335) were a distant second. The many who said this could never happen must now eat their words. In the overall season standings Steady Eddys are in the lead (204), Birdie Boyz (193) are second and Stan's Army (189) is third.  

PINS ($76):
Hole 11 Greg McArthur (37'), Hole 12 Fred Hoekstra (3' 9"), Hole 13 Tom Doherty (65'), Hole 15 Keg Neil Havens, Hole 16 Bill Ottewell (20' 2"), Hole 17 Ryan Amyot (2' 1") , Hole 18 Rob Matheson (18' 6"). 

50/50 Winner is Jeff Harron $90

It wasn't Beat the Pro this week so much as Beat Up The Pro! Michael Todd (37) gotten beaten by no less than seven leaguers. Two of these gentlemen, Bill Ottewell(34) and Jim Wilson (35), require special mention: living the dream 'from obscurity to front page'!  Just in case you hadn't noticed Jim Wilson has won the 50/50 twice this season Week 3 and Week 7.

In the skins department Gross Skin Flight +3 to 4, no skins last week, six skins this week. One wonders if the large carry-over was a  head-concentrating factor. Whatever the reason,  each of the skin-heads benefited to the sum of $50. Not to be outdone, Gross Skin Flight 5-7 produced zero skins this week creating a motivating $117 carry-over for next week.

July 4

Senior Men’s Golf News
Another great turnout for the Senior Men’s Golf day on Tuesday, July 9.  The guys’ games must be improving as everyone gears up for the Club Championship, coming up in a few weeks, and the scores this week are evident of that.
