Oak Creek Golf Course was in great shape and the weather was great for the 60+ golfers in the field.   Early returns indicate all had a great time and challenge.  The alternate shot can be an exciting challenge. Kudos for this round go to Team Cox,  who edged ahead of Team Lightfoot for the 5 points awarded to the round’s winning team.

Lightfoot’s Team pair of Mulzac & Brown, the only pair to post a score in the seventies. Round 3 promises to be even more exciting and enjoyable, with all Teams still in the hunt.  Round 3 is scheduled for Friday, July 9th @ Enterprise Golf Course.  Format will be “2-man scramble.”

 

The 2021 Red Jacket club championship got off to a great start Saturday at Renditions Golf Course. 60+ golfers across 5 Flights Teed Off to post their 1st round scores.

a wonderful way to end our 2020 golf program with The President’s Pic 4. The Weather was great, and of course, the club’s camaraderie was outstanding @ Argyle Country Club.  50+ golfers, competing for their respective teams for this one last time.

22 golfers qualified for the inaugural championship tournament at Manor Country Club. One golfer recorded a net (2) under par to win this years Red Jacket.

2018 Club Champion, William “Bill” Hall, is our New 2020 Club Champion, and has earned his second Red Jacket.

 

Team Stewart ends the 2-Man Season victorious

Washington DC’s Pro-Duffers 2-Man Team results are in – Team Stewart goes back to back – the dynasty continues.

At Hampshire Greens Golf Course in Silver Spring, Maryland on September 26th, 2020 history was made. On a dreary day, with a low of 45°, Pro-Duffer championship hopefuls took to the fairways and took their swing for glory and bragging rights until the next season. This outing completed the third and final round of the 2-Man Team Competition, bringing the struggle to a resounding close. When we last left, Team Stewart’s dynasty chances were under fire and pressure from two other teams fast on their heels. One that even secured a temporary first place lead by 1 point. But maybe it really is true what they say: when you’ve been there before, it makes a difference.

The golden, glowing Team Cox that we saw last round was nowhere to be found out on Hampshire Greens. In round 3 they came in dead last with 1 point. Total. Only one duo under their banner broke 70 strokes – their consistent powerhouse Powell/Sanders weren’t enough to save them with a laudable 65 net score effort. It was just not enough.  

Team Boone had a chance for another uptick in performance as well, having scored 4 points in the last round, but they returned to the standard they set in the first outing of the season. Team Smith had a good day, tying this round for first with Team Stewart, but there was too much ground to cover – they were out before the first tee left the box.

We asked the question, and Team Stewart answered in ice cold blood.  Not one 2-Man team in the stable shot above a 75. They absolutely mowed the competition. And with less than stellar performances from the other two teams in the running, no one seemed to stand a chance.

After a request for comment captain Stewart wanted us all to know: 

“It was a team effort that brought new & old roster members together, and we were willing to step up to the challenge.”

The Pro-Duffers 2-Man Team Championship season has come to an end. The chips and the dip go to Team Stewart, once again. And you can be sure, there’s only going to be one thing on every Pro-Duffer’s mind all of the off season.   

3-peat?

 

Round 3 of the Final 2-man team results have been tallied.  Congratulations to Team Stewart for successfully defending their 2019 win.  In this hard-fought season, five teams competed in three very competitive rounds.  Kudos to our newest Team Captains, Larry Smith and Reggie Boone, for putting together great teams and adding great drama to our competitions.  Teams Cox and Boone tied for second-place honors.

The 3rd. round Qualifier was concluded on Saturday, Sept 19  to see who will compete for the 2020 Club Championship.  To qualify for the Championship Tournament, golfers had to play in at least 2 of the 3 rounds.  Their best two rounds would be used to determine who plays in the Finals on September 30th. Congrats to the following duffers who came out to play:

Ron Hosley – net 69

Frank Sanders – net 64

Larry Smith – net 70

David Grant – net 62

Larry Banks – net 61
