Welcome to the golf season...Macke and Ruchti are Aces....Hawkeye banquet around the corner!

Hole in one for Macke
Good one Pat 
It was a beautiful over cast night on the fairways and greens of the
Carroll Country Club as week 1 of the Men's Supper League unfolded. All of the cast of characters came out of hibernation....Papa Joe Pick, Bud One Jim Auen, John Deere Green Benton Snyder, new dad Travis Aye, head hog Terry Ruchti and the one and only junkyard dog just to name a few.

Here's your action from the front nine.

Your Bud Light team squared off against Ag Ventures. Captain Mike Franey and Bud Three Steve Auen were winners over Brad Woodard and Clay Haley. Mike Schulz and Bud Two Troy Auen suffered losses. Denny Kapserbauer chipped his way to victory and Dave Greteman wore down Mike Schulz in a nine hole match that seemed to take awhile. In the end a 6 to 4 victory for your Bud Light team. Steve Sinnard was out of action trying to catch a trophy fish some where in South Dakota to display in the Tuscon room.  Long time subscriber, top local amateur, highly successful and more veteran golfer Craig Mertz.

The reigning defending champions, Mid Iowa Team, continued their early season slow start from last year falling to Stiff Sticks 3-7. Produce Tom Duff the only winner beating Fairway Frank Comito. McCormick Ranch's Papa Joe Pick battled to a draw with Doc Sporrer. Bud One Jim Auen blistered the course shooting an even par 37 to beat the Junkyard Dog Cuda Quandt. Lots of whining in the clubhouse after the match coming the farmer and the dog table as they waited for the food. Leave up to those two to complicated the ordering process and have to wait almost an hour for their food. Trusty Mike Nelson beat the playing pride of Willey, Iowa Paul Tigges. Stiff Sticks were low net team.

Hole in One for Ruchti
Harley Davidson of Carroll blanked Byron's Boyz 10 to 0. Champion Corey Bluml led the way with an one under 36. Rick Vanderheiden, Jamming Joe Hinners and head hog Terry Ruchti were all winners.

Graddy's Salsa were a few short due to the funeral of Tomato John's mother. They scored 3 points against par.

Kimmes Country Store beat Wittrock Motor Company 7 to 30. Brock Jones the winner for the motors along with a tie from new daddy Travis Aye. Jake Kimmes led the way for the gas station team with a low net 33 award. He did have to share that award with Wyatt Haukap.

Kitt Plumbing rolled Renze's Rig-a-ma-roll 7 to 3. Westside State Savings Bank's head teller lost to Steve Anthofer and Wyatt Haukap tied John Nepple. Only two players for both teams.

Here is the back nine action..............................

Carpet One shut out Fleggard 10 to 0. Jon Sturm and Colin Bierl were the low carpet layers. Brad Hempstead and Austin Scott also won. Bierl was awarded low net and carpet one was low net team.

Oh no Chico! Linde Equipment beat Community Oil 8 to 2. Dick Muhlbauer was the only winner for the oil jobbers. Jewels Eckerman beat Chico's right hand Todd Kanne.

Sorry Brad! Hope you still vote for me! 
Carroll Glass penetrated the fire walls of Computer Concepts resulting in permanent damage. Head glass cutter Andy Reiman and Benton Snyder were winners. The mayor Adam Schweers beat Lidderdale Country Store's Brad Stork.

Champion Ford edged Budweiser 6 to 4. Budweiser now has like 9 members on the their team and already are struggling to find four willing participants.  Car Wash Todd Pettitt the only winner for the King of Beers. Steve Blue Herrin beat Jeff Minnich.

Volquartsen Customs and Family Specialty tied their match. Eastside Tony Pietig and Casket Kyle Atkinson won their matches for the gun shop. Pietig was loss gross with a even par 34. Chemical Dirk Glynn was the only winner for Familyl Specialty.

Andy Reiman was closest to the pin and Chris Bogue nailed the longest putt.

It is that time of year again for all loyal Iowans to invade the Aracdia Legion Hall for the 2015 Carroll Area I Club Banquet.
