Summer Program Summary:
Congratulations to Gage Wolfle for winning this year’s Player of the Year award! Gage finished in first place in the POY Points List as he earned a total of 647 points throughout the summer season. As we all know, Gage had a strong commitment to his golf game this summer and he’s done a great job in honing his skills over the past couple of years. Gage spent a lot of time at the course this year during the PJGA days but you could also find him here on just about every other day as well. Gage comes from a great family and both his older brother (Shea) and his father (Brian) are very good golfers as well.
Parent Invitation Event (8/20/15)
We had a visit by Mother Nature who blessed us with some rain at the start of the event but we were able to push through and get the tournament in despite the wet/humid conditions. There were a total of 20 teams that played and the format was a two person (Junior + Guest) modified scramble that included a tee shot requirement; Each player’s tee shot had to be used at least (3) three times during the 9 holes. It turned out to be, “what else but the Wolfle Show”, as Gage and his father cleaned up winning first place and picking up some skill prizes along the way. Gage and his father (Brian) posted a (-4) under round of 31 in the scramble format to win by 2 strokes over Matt Masiejczyk and his dad (Edmund), who scored a (-2) under par round of 33. We had a 3way tie for 3rd and 4th Place so we did a match of cards and Casey Carson and his dad (Joe) won 3rd Place while Carle Ream and Shawn Cunning won 4th Place, all with rounds of even par 35.
I hope everyone enjoyed this summer’s program. We finished with a total of 10 practice days that included a lot of short game work and lots of balls being hit at the range, not to mention the open golf after. We also had a total of 7 competition days that included individual and team play as well as stroke play, match play and the use of handicaps. All in all, a lot of golf this season!
