Macke Motors win big.....Bud Light ties Stiff Sticks.....Pizza Ranch big movers!...30th Bud Open Softball Tourney this weekend!

It was a glorious night on the fairways and greens of the Carroll Country Club and long time subscriber, top local amateur, highly successful and more veteran golfer Craig Mertz carried your Bud Light team to a tie with Frank Comito's Stiff Sticks. Mertz's 3 under par was good enough to beat Mike Nelson 11 to 7 and he shared low gross honors with CCC head gold professional and general manager Nick Schon. Over in the passengers seat of their E-Z-Go golf cart 2009 Bud Light Golfer of the Year Steve Sinnard struggled to find his game against a scrappy Frank Comito and was beaten 11 to 7. With the loss Sinnard falls into a tie for the 2010 Bud Light Golfer of the Year race with Mertz as both golfers are averaging 10 points each week. Captain Mike Franey is in hot pursuit just .25 points back. Captain Franey never totally recovered from a 0-2 start and was topped by Chip Wittrock 10 to 8. 2008 Bud Light golfer of the year Mike Schulz pumped two out of bounds on the 6th hole, recovered nicely in the match and finally settled for a tie with Dr. Neal Cross.

Overall your Bud Light team gained seven points on league leading Sharp Funeral Home who were buried by Volquartsen Custom. The gunners were led by Keith Pottebaum who crashed the computer of Anit-virus Adam Schweers 14 to 4. Nic Volquartsen scored a 11 to 7 victory. Westside State Savings Bank's head janitor Matt Lujano and Kitt Plumbing's head plumber butt Wyatt Haukap both tied in the 43 to 29 win.

The top of the Zach Johnson division tighten up like a 36" belt on a 40" waist line. The caskets started the night with a six point lead over CCSB and they end the night with a 9 point lead but that is not the problem. The bank tellers were pummelled by Brian Badding and the large desert pizzas of Pizza Ranch 46 to 26. The ranchers started week 8 28 points out of first and 22 points out of second. They exit week 8 only 2 points out of second and 11 behind the caskets. Brian Badding was the big winner for the pizzas as he beat Carroll City Councilman Jeff Scharfenkamp 18 to 0. Tomato John Gradovile and Cavity Nick Fangman split their matches to save a little face for the tellers.

Other action in the Zach Johnson division.............

  • Hawkeye Commodity Brokers went from 10th place to 5th with a 49 to 23 dusting of Elin's 9-irons. Bill's Khakis peddler Wade Wilkie blanked Northwestern Wildcat Eric Neu to lead the brokers. Monument Man Loren Boyce and Digger Dave Nelson were winners over Todd and Colin Bierl. Head broker Sean O'Leary was the only loser for the team getting beat by a subbing Jay Drees.

  • Despite Nick Schon taking it low Templeton Rye was whipped by Byron's Boyz 43 to 29. The boys are in 4th place just 8 points behind the pizzas. Ralph Guerra the MVP with a 16 to 2 thumping of Paul Tigges.

  • The La-z-boys and Carroll Cycle Center battled to a tie. The chairs are in 7th place and the cycles are tied in 8th with YOUR Bud Light Team. Former Hy-Vee store director Randy Hockom beat Dr. J.B. Greenwell 11 to 7 to lead the chairs and MC's Country Cafe head dishwasher Mark Tigges beat Doc Sporrer 12 to 6 to lead the Cycles

  • Templeton Savings Bank lost to the par 41 to 31.

Over in that other division is where all the controversy exists. It was like two kids sitting around waiting for Santa Claus as Flying Bob Raue and Captain Randy Bierl waited for this publisher with smiles as large as the Grand Canyon. After a quick review of the results I understood what had happened as Macke Motors were perched atop the Phil Mickelson division and their over handicapped stars were both awarded low net and low gross. As they spun around and around on the leather covered bar stools I settled in for a long winter's nap and listened to the replay shot by shot. Flying Bob waxed Bud Two Troy Auen 13 to 5 and the Captain crushed cell phone mogul Pat Macke 15 to 3. Car wash Todd Pettitt and Hy-Vee Store director Joel Flug both scored 11 to 7 victories over Cable Guy Chad Kanne and Bill Badding. When the dust settled the motors had pulled off a 50 to 22 thrashing and jumped from 3rd to 1st. This report is investigating a formal complaint concerning the handicap of Captain Randy Bierl which may lead to sanctions.

Here is what happened with the other teams in the Phil Mickelson division.

  • The battle of 1st and 2nd ended with a 42 to 30 victory for Papa Joe's Subway club. Windstar lost the match, the lead and fell to 3rd behind the soggy subs. Steve "Cuda" Quandt and Papa Joe Pick scored 13 to 6 victories over Tiger Tom Simons and Jair Mayhall. Manning Iowa's pride and joy Pat "Spanky" Vollstedt was the MVP with a 14 to 4 victory over the head bus driver Jeff Greteman. The subs are 5 points behind Macke Motors.
  • Commercial Savings Bank lost a close one to the oil jobbers of Community Oil 37 to 35. Papa Joe's oldest Aaron shot an one over par 35 to share low gross with Flying Bob, father in law Randy and Glenn Badding. Dick Muhlbauer was the MVP for the oilmen.

  • The next sound that you will here will be Miller Lite dropping into the cellar. The Lite beers were beaten by Larry's Automotive 47 to 25. In an interview with this publisher team captain Fred Dolezal says the team is just not responding to the competition and wonders if they have lost their will to win!

  • Carroll Glass beat Kasperbauer Cleaners 41 to 31. Lidderdale Country Store's head pork chop Brad Stork was the MVP with a 13 to 5 victory.

  • Glenn Badding continued his stellar play with an one over par 35. That makes a three under par 68 for Badding in combined rounds. Badding Construction and Linde Equipment battled to a tie. This report would like to welcome 20 time Carroll City Champion Mike "Jewels" Eckerman back to action. Good to see you Jewels!
