Wentrup a Top Six Finisher – Kildare Group June 29th

Mike Wentrup’s game wasn’t without flaw Friday, but he still managed a top-six finish in both the gross and net categories. Unfortunately, there were only six players on the card. The approaching holiday weekend, travel plans and the heat kept the field small. The top five players all bettered their handicap with Pat Collins lighting it up with a net 62 (gross 76).

Low Net

  1. Pat Collins – 62
  2. Joel Temple – 68
  3. Don Hourihan and George Stelmach – 69

Kildare Results – June 27th

Rosin ran away from the field Wednesday after (again) shooting his age. Ron carded a gross 72 and a net 63. He finished well in front of the competition both in the gross and net categories. No one else in the field pushed him.

Only one hole on the course played at “over bogey” and it will surprise no one it was #7 Lakes. 45% of the field scored double-bogey or worse on the hole. There were a dozen birdies on the day, one third of which were found on the card of Ron Rosin.

Low Net

  1. Ron Rosin – 63
  2. Ken Vlah – 68
  3. Mike Forde and Jim Gabriel – 70 Continue reading “Kildare Results – June 27th”

Kildare Results – Wednesday June 20th

What a day of golf! Half the field performed substantially worse than their handicaps predicted, but some guys really lit it up was some great rounds. Cris Caruso shot a solid 75 and wondered if that might be good enough to finish first again. Purge the thought! In walked Scott Thompson who carded a gross 72. Surely that would hold up for low gross. And it did . . . until Joel Temple walked in the door. Not only did he shoot gross 72, he did it with a ten handicap for a net 62. Good solid golf rounds from all three.

Low Gross

  1. Joel Temple and Scott Thompson – 72
  2. Cris Caruso – 75 Continue reading “Kildare Results – Wednesday June 20th”

They dominated the opening day with a twelve under par score without the help of their chosen pros of David Toms and Webb Simpson. They faded slightly on the second day of the tournament, but their pros stepped in and put them over the top. Continue reading “Gainey – U.S. Open Championship”
