Congratulations Wyatt and Lindsey!
Welcome back to the golf season! I have had many emails, phone calls, texts and personal visits concerning the status of the golf report. The anticipation of a new golf season has met a huge dose of reality. All of the off season training seems to have been misplaced as after two weeks your Bud Light team is solidly lodged in
8th place. To say that your Bud Light has stumbled out of the gate is an understatement BUT the good news is the road to the championship is mapped out and clear.
Week 1 saw the Windstar buses smash the beer cans. Bud Three Steve "Hans" Auen, Captain Mike Franey and Security Mike Sculz all tied. long time subscriber, top local amateur, highly successful and more veteran golfer Craig Mertz was beaten by Tony Pietig despite shooting even par. It just goes to show you supper league is about winning points not just about smashing your drive down the middle of the fairway, knocking it on the green and putting it in for par Mr. Mertz. I am sure that the long time subscriber, top local amateur, highly successful and more veteran golfer will recover from this and provide leadership that can only come from the eldest member of your Bud Light team.
To recap week one it was not about who showed up but all of the golfers that did not!
I was confident that after getting kicked below the belt line in week one that your Bud Light team was going to rebound. I WAS WRONG! In week 2 your Bud Light team suffered blunt force trauma to the head at the hands of the 2010 Men's supper league champions Macke Motors. I am not going to sugar coat this one it was not pretty! Bud Two Troy Auen was beaten by Captain Randy Bierl, long time subscriber, top local amateur, highly successful and more veteran golfer Craig Mertz was beaten by Car wash Todd Pettitt and Steve Sinnard was beaten by Flying Bob Raue. The only bright spot was Mike Schulz who beat Papa Joe Classic Champion Jeff Minnich.
Todd Pettitt was low gross in the Zach Johnson division, Mike Schulz was closet to the pin on #8 and a subbing Mike Franey won longest putt honors on #9.
Over in the Phil Mickelson division Carroll Country Club President Kyle Atkinson was loss gross and the Grady's Salsa team was low net team. I love that salsa!
Week 2 was still marred with missing golfers! Click here for the standings after two weeks!
Week 3 finds your Bud Light team taking on the last place La-z-boys who have struggled to field a team the first two weeks. Look for complete coverage of week 3 tomorrow!
