Welcome back to the golf season….Bud Light ready for a run to the championship…Fairway Frank and the Sticks look to repeat!

The first night of the 2012 Carroll Country Club Men’s Supper league is tonight and the weather looks to be fabulous. This year’s league is divided into four flights…US Open Flight, British Open Flight, Masters Flight and the PGA Flight. The Masters and the PGA will play each other to determine a winner in the Zach Johnson Division.The US Open Flight and the British Open Flight will play to determine a winner in the Phil Mickelson Division.

The two divisional winners will square off on August 28 to crown the 2012 Men’s Supper league Champion.

Here is my analysis of week one along with a few predictions.

2011 Men's Supper League Champions...Stiff Sticks!
The US Open Flight is where you find the 2011 champions Stiff Sticks. The Sticks look to ride on the shoulders of 2011 Papa Joe Classic Fairway Frank Comito to a second straight championship. The long time La-z-boys team is no longer so Bud One Jim Auen and Larry “Doc” Sporrer have found a new home with the Sticks.

The Sticks are the clear favorite in this division but may see some pressure from the former Subway team which now is Templeton Rye.

This publisher will wait to see if the farmer and the dog still have some magic in their bags.

Tonight’s line up in the US Open Flight:

Stiff Sticks vs. Byronz Boys, Juergens Lawn Care vs. Active Performance and Templeton Rye takes on Par.

Your Bud Light team is in the British Open Flight. 2008 and 2009 Papa Joe Champion Digger Dave Nelson returns to his old team which is now Champion Ford. Windstar Lines, Graddy’s Salsa and Badding Construction can all contend for this divisional title.

My favorite in this division is YOUR Bud Light team as they make their way to another championship with Graddy’s and Champion Ford in dead heat for second.

Tonight’s line up in the British Open Flight: Champion Ford vs. Badding Construction, Windstar vs. Tomato John’s Salsa Crew. Steve Sinnard will be subbing for the tomatoes after being benched for week 1 from your Bud Light team. Your Bud Light team starts the quest against par tonight.

In the Masters Flight of the Zach Johnson Division you will find two powerhouses in Carroll Cycle Center and Macke Motors. I give the nod to the cycles with their off season addition of Corey Bluml to take the crown in the Masters Flight.

Tonight in the Masters Flight:

Utilicomm draws the short straw tonight and takes on Carroll Cycle Center right out of the shoot. Greteman Chiropractic looks to adjust the bowing walls of WCI and Macke Motors plays par.

In the PGA Flight I look to Budweiser and Community Oil to be the front runners with lots of pressure from Carroll Glass and Carroll Broadcasting. One team in this flight does not even have a name so it is hard to consider them for the top spot. They spent a lot of time at the top last year only to settle for fourth by losing to the Soggy Subs in last year’s playoffs. In the end “This Bud’s for You.”

Tonight in the PGA Flight;

The two favorites tee off against each other as Budweiser takes on the head oil jobber Chico Kanne and Community Oil. Carroll Glass plays Brown Shoe Fit and Carroll Broadcasting plays the no namers. This match up will feature Uncle Pete Collison squaring off against nephew Colin Hackett.

Best of luck to all the teams this year. This year I will track the total points of all league golfers and will name the player who scored the most points this year. I have named the award Uncle Bruce's Player of Year.

Look for in depth coverage and analysis of all the action. I would like to welcome Jeff Bahr and the Brown Shoe Fit Company as a new birdie sponsor.

As always this Bud’s for you and On Iowa
