TEAM #B5 ~GARY CARR & DENNIS KOEHN TURN THE TABLES ON TEAM #B3 DENNY OBENAUER & KEN KELCHNER TAKING 30 POINTS TO CLIMB WITHIN 3 POINTS OF FIRST PLACE Team #B5: Gary Carr & Dennis Koehn: Exacted a little bit of revenge against the team that vaulted ahead of them in first place in the previous weeks position round. Gary drops off a couple of strokes from last weeks round, coming in with a 54. The opening bogey was not to bad, but the par 5-2nd hole did major damage to the round. Gary added 5 extra strokes on the card. He stuck a double made on #4 between a couple of triples. One more triple showed up on the card on #6 and then Gary finished strong. He nailed a par on #7, bogey on 8 and finished solid with a par on #9. Good finish Gary and nice effort on the round. Gary notched (2) pars. Partner Dennis faired much better this week than last also, as he dropped
off 5 strokes to post a 47. The first two holes cost him back to back doubles to get off to a rough start. He made bogey on 3 and nailed a par on #4. The second par 5 was a duplicate score as the first with a double and he added a double on the tough double water hole #6. He also finished a bit better, posting bogeys on 7 & 8 and a par on 9. Good shooting Dennis. Dennis finished with (2) pars. Gary and Dennis are now only 3 points behind the leaders. Team #B6: Larry Ball & Norm Giraud: Larry and Norm have climbed two spots, holding on to 4th place after week 6. Larry posts his 2nd 50 round in back to back weeks. His first two holes hurt him from coming in under 50 as the took an
opening double followed by a triple. He nailed a par on #3 and bogeyed #4. The par 5, 5th hole cost him yet another double. After back to back bogeys on 5 & 7 he finished with back to back doubles. Good effort Larry. His partner Norm seems to be getting back into a golf groove after a long layoff. He stumbled a bit in week 6, going up 4 strokes from his previous weeks round, coming in with a 56. The opening quad hurt, but that was softened a bit by a very nice par on #2. He doubled #3 an bogeyed the first par three. Four of the last 5 holes really did the number on his round. He posted two triples, a quad and a double, at least making a par on #7. Good try Norm.
DENNIS KOEHN POSTS THE BEST ROUND IN THE ‘B’ FLIGHT PLAYERS COMING IN WITH A 47 ~~HONORABLE MENTION TO BILLY ALESSANDRINI AND MATT ZUBER POSTING ROUNDS OF 48!!! Team #B7: Ernie Danos & Steve Fleck: Ernie’s round went up since his last round played, but Steve’s round did go down. Ernie had all kinds of trouble on his first three holes. He posted back to back doubles and added a quad on #3. A bogey felt good on #4 but the par 5, 5th hole clipped him for a triple. He finished with two bogeys, posted on 7 & 9 adding a double on 6 and triple on 8. A valiant effort Ernie. Steve did knocked 5 strokes off last weeks round. His first three holes and final two holes cost him several strokes. 5 extra on #1 followed by a double and triple on 2 & 3. A bogey on 4 was followed by a triple on the 2nd par 5. Steve finished with back to
back doubles followed by back to back triples. Good try Steve. Team #B8: Bill Marsack & Ron Corfield: Bill & Ron continue to hang on to third place, but are now being crowded by Team #B6 Larry & Norm who are only 6 points behind them. Bill posted a decent round of 45 in last weeks play, knocking off 4 strokes from week 5. Bill absolutely played bogey golf his entire round. He posted nothing worse than a bogey, but also was unable to nail any pars. Well played Bill. His partner, Ron struggled a bit more this week than he did last week. He comes in with a 67, 6 strokes over week 5’s round. Ron opened with a quad and took a double on the first par 5. The
triple on #3 was followed by a bogey on 4. The second par 5 was a duplicate from #2 as he took a double. The quad on #6 was followed by a bogey on #7.

MYSTERY WINNER IN WEEK 6: BILL MARSACK MYSTER SCORE: 45

Team #B1: Erv Rock & Jim Loughead: Neither player was present for the league night and I did hear something about fly fishing. I guess that beats swinging a club. Now that I think of it, you cast out a club on a line to hit the little white ball just to drain in a putt on a line to the hole in golf. Clever huh. Bank rounds were used to match up against their opponents. Jim had a 59 bank round and Erv had a 60. Team #B2: Tim Weigel & Matt Zuber: I understand that Tim was under the weather and still made golf. We will keep him in prayer for a quick recovery and that he feels better for next week. Tim came in with a 63, five strokes off last weeks round, and I am sure that not feeling well didnâ€™t help. The first three holes did the most damage to his round. Tim started with 8 strokes over the hole par on #1. The next two holes did not help, a triple on 2 and then 5 more extra shots on #3. Tim seemed to recover some, notching a bogey on 4, par on 5 and double on 6 and bogey on 7. Then the bottom dropped out again with a quad on 8 and triple on 9. A valiant effort by Tim who finished with (1) par. Matt matched his previous weeks round coming in with a 48. Matt started with back to back doubles and followed with back to back bogeys. After one more double, this time on the par 5 fifth hole, Matt got on a bogey train. He finished his round with bogeys on the final four holes. No pars, but a good finish to a rough start. Nice round Matt. Team #B3: Denny Obenauer & Ken Kelchner: It was a bit of a let down for the first place team who lost this weeks match to the team
they defeated last week. The still remain in first by three points. Denny started rough as he opened with a quad on #1. He nailed a par on #2 and added a double on #3. Denny posted bogeys on #4 and #5 before having some real problems on the next four holes. He made a double on #6, back to back triples on 7 & 8 and finishing with a double on 9 to take a promising round in the forties to a 52. Denny posted (1) par. His partner Ken K started his round in the hole as well, posting a triple on #1. He took a bogey on #2 but followed with a par on #3. The par three, hole #4 saw Ken put a double on the card and followed that with a bogey on the second par 5. Other than hole #6 where Ken posted a triple, he finished on a better note. He finished with bogeys on 7, 8 & 9 to salvage a round in the 40â€™s, finishing with a 49. Ken notched (1) par. Good try Ken. Team #B4: Billy Alessandrini & Mark Dixon: Mark was unavailable for the round as his job kept him away from league play last week. A bank round of 58 was used to post against his opponent. Billy was able to play and came in with his best round of the season so far, posting a round of 48. Bill stuck a bogey on #2 between doubles on 1 & 3. He nailed a par on #4 and then took back to back doubles on 5 & 6. He also finished on a better note, notching bogeys on his final three holes. Billy nailed (1) par in a decent round. Good try Billy.

June 26, 2014 TIPS FOR THE GAME
Three Wood Putt You know that annoying putt that has the ball resting right up against the cut on a green? You can't hit a wedge, and if you try to use your putter, you'll either grab the grass, or top the ball and bounce it halfway to the hole? Here may be a solution for you: Take out your three wood. Why does this work? A putter or an iron has a thin flange on the bottom of the club that causes it to grab, throwing the momentum and direction of the club off target. The three wood on the other hand, has a long, flat bottom that bounces into the rough and stays true. To execute this shot effectively, take your regular putting stance and putt the ball as you would normally, but choke up on your grip to where it meets the shaft. After a few tries on the practice green, you'll be putting out of this trouble spot with much more consistency. Remember, practice makes perfect, so practice, practice & more practice to get the feel of the shot to help you save strokes.
