Robbie won the first three 2016 monthlies and Jason the next two. But it was John that kept them out of the win column in June. Pete took outright second, 2 strokes behind John. One stroke behind Pete was a three way tie between Dan, Hal & Jason. In the CTP they all were not thrilled with their shots!!! Dan did get closest followed by Hal then Jason. With his win, John extended his lead in the 2016 points race to 9 over Robbie. There is only 2 points difference from third to fifth with Jason in third, Hal in fourth and Pete in fifth. A big Chainracker welcome to Eric, who played his first of three handicapping rounds. I know he will be out there practicing those alternate holes in preparation for his next monthly. If you have not been out in awhile we now park and start at the Pavillion, (holes #3/4) for both the weekly and monthly.
Through the rain and wind Jason kept a steady flight to victory in his first qualified tourney with the Chainrackers. John was 7 strokes behind in second. Hal bested Dan in a CTP for third and Steve rounded out the field in fifth. Robbie still leads the points race, but its early in the year. Congrats to Jason.
With Robbie’s March win, that makes it 3 straight to start the 2016 season!! Needless to say Robbie is leading in the 2016 points race. John lost to Robbie by 1 stroke and now trails Robbie by 8 points. Hal came in third and Pete fourth. Carl came out and played his 2nd round towards his handicap. Carl’s 1st round was a raw score of 80! Everybody’s March score was a bit higher than normal due to the windy conditions, but always fun to watch discs fly in the wind. With the clocks moving forward we shall move ahead and start the 6pm Wednesday weekly back up beginning this Wed. the 16th.
In shooting a new course record of 67, Austin wins the final monthly of 2014. Austin was at -6 going into the tee pad 9 and with his blistering -8 on the final 9 Austin surpassed John’s 68, which has stood as the course record since July 2009. John and Pete tied for second and John out CTP’d Pete for the 5 points. Hal, with his bad back, was just out for a victory round since he had first place in the 2014 Championship race already won. Austin and John tied for second in the points race but Austin got the nod with taking 2 out of 3 in a CTP contest. With Pete’s third place finish in the monthly he tied Dallas for fourth in the points race. Since Dallas was a no show for the monthly, Pete automatically took home 4th place for 2014. It was another fun year with the Elk Grove Chainrackers, but let’s make it a funner year in 2015!!
We last saw Mr. Kehret at a monthly in May 2009. What a way to return!! A personal best (PB) of 76 and takes home the black mini. Welcome back Steven. Hal tied his PB of 73 and came in second. With his 5 points, December’s monthly will be a celebratory round as Hal has wrapped up the 2014 points title. Congrats Hal. Austin also shot a PB and tied John’s course record of 68. With his 3rd place finish Austin is now 2 points behind 2nd & 3rd in the points race. Dallas and John are tied with 27 points heading into the final monthly. Dallas also threw a PB this month and came in fourth. Dan, who we also last saw at a monthly in May of ’09, got the final bonus point by placing 5th. In summary, Steven, Dallas, & Austin throw personal bests. Austin ties course record held by John since July 2009, Hal wraps up points race for 2014, and December will be exciting!!! I crunched some numbers…In December..if Steve S. wins, Pete 2nd, Austin 4th, Dallas & John just get 1 pt.—those 5 will all have 28 points…that will be a fun CTP!!! Let’s do it in a December Deluge!!!!—JBK
In breaking 100 for the first time Pete takes home the black mini with a 96. With his win, Pete jumps up into contention for the 2014 Championships with two months remaining. Hal remains in the points lead with his second place finish. Austin out CTP’d Dallas for third and Jack gets the last bonus points with his 5th place.
With his net 79 Dallas became the third two time winner in 2014. Let’s use the number 2 for a bit here. Steve was 2nd with a net score of 81. Dallas wins by 2. Dallas gets 7 pts for first and Steve gets 5 for second. 2 pt difference. Dallas and Steve are now tied for 2nd in pts race with 22 pts. Well..that’s not true, but I had to do with the number 2….Dallas and Steve are now tied for 3rd in the pts race with 23 pts. John took 3rd with a net 82 and retains his #2 spot in the pts race with 24, one behind Hal. Jack came in 4th with 83 net. Had Jack not 3 putted his final hole he would have had a CTP for 3rd with John. Pete came in 5th with net 84. Ben and Austin are tied for 5th with 17 pts and Pete is one back of them in 6th. Going to be an exciting final 3 months in 2014 pts race. Marie rode up on her bike while scores were being tallied and she is hoping to be out and throwing in our next monthly. Good to see you feeling better Marie. Keep ’em flying’—JBK
Ben won our July & August monthlies and has moved himself up into the top 5 for the 2014 Championships. Ben just so happens to be tied for with with his Dad for 4th after Steve came in 4th in August!! Austin, with his second place finish moved up to third in the points race. Hal, with a third place finish, stays atop the points race. Dallas took the final extra point in August with his 5th place showing. See those of you that show this weekend!!–JBK
