Biology and the Kildare Group – August 24th

Many people are surprised to learn that nature’s great carnivores hunt in cycles or circles. Packs of coyotes, for example, tend to roam large areas and revisit small sections with great regularity. Not coincidentally, the hunting cycle tends to parallel the gestation period of rabbits. About the time the rabbit population pushes nature’s limits to sustain it, the coyote shows up to put populations back where they belong.

So it is with some golfers. Jim Woods, a.k.a. Woodsy, has taken some time off. He hasn’t played golf in months so injuries can have time to heal (or so he claims). I’m more inclined to believe he has just been laying low so other Gainey golfers could save enough bet money to make Woodsy’s return more profitable. Friday’s match seems to be proof of the theory.

The team of Cris Caruso, Skyler Irvine, Steve King and Jim Stamatis walked away with first place honors and $25 per man in prize money. They actually tied the team of Howard Jones, George Stelmach, Dave Inman and Jim Woods, but Woodsy’s team was edged out on a scorecard play-off. This was a good thing otherwise, Woodsy would have gone home with nearly all the money.

Net skins were profitable with only three being won. Two of them belonged to (you guessed it) Woodsy. He walked away with $140. George Stelmach bagged the third one.

Low Gross

  1. Matt Anzalone – 73

  3. Jim Stamatis – 77

Low Net

  1. Yes, that is correct. Matt is a “+2” which means he gets two strokes added to his gross. Coincidentally, I brought in the Jones Golf computer program for further testing yesterday and it almost caught fire and burned . . . all because of Matt. I hadn’t anticipated what would happen in certain calculations when someone had a plus handicap. I spent about four hours working it in this morning and everything seems to be fine now.

    The posting of the scoring details you found on this site comes directly from that program.
