Sunday and Monday Golf

February 8th golf

The foursome of Gary Cook, Don Riesberg, Richard Lampi and George Coulson braved the sun and warm temperatures at Cottonwood.

They hoped that the nice weather would show up on the score cards with nice scores.

Gary led the way with 8 Bogeys and a par to score a 35. Not much to write about on Gary’s game , it was up the middle, chip, put, put, and on to the next hole.

Don played the first four holes great but on the 5th hole he had a guest sitting on his shoulder
telling him to hit ball hard to get acrossthe water.
He hit it as hard as he could and was rewarded with a 50 yard drive, just short of the canal, hit his second onto the green,took 3 to get it in the hole, for a 5.
On hole # six, another comment from his guest got him a 30 yarder, resulting in another 5.
From there Don was not listening to his guest any more and finished his round with a 36.

Richard was playing bogey golf until he scored a 5 o # 5. Then on #8 he tried a lob wedge from about 30 yards out,and like Tiger Woods only hit it 10 yards and finished with a 6.

#9 proved no better, his drive went over the green then chip, chip, chip, put, put for a 6 and all the strokes added up to a season high of 41.

George was doing fine until # 5 where his putter failed him and he had a 6, hole # 7 and # 9 he scored 5’s and his total for the day was a 40.

Monday Feb. 9th:

Sid joined Don, George and Richard on a nice warm day that started out with a few clouds then turned into a sunny day.
Everyone played well, and were tied on the score sheet with 31’s after eight holes.

Sid parred the last hole and ended up with a 34 for the round. Don had a bogey on the last hole, his score was a 35.
George and Richard both shot 5’s and ended up with 36 for the round.

Just a reminder :
There will be a group of golfers going over to Treasure Hills golf club for 3:00 pm on Wednesday Feb 11th.
If your are interested contact Bill Stewart.

Who showes up to golf

who showes up to golf

It seems, in golf that each golfer has two persona’s, one that is a good golfer and the other is

the evil twin.

On any given day, we do not know which person will show up when we go golfing. Todays golf at Cottonwood

George Coulson, Sid Bina, Don Reisberg and Richard Lampi, teed off # 1.

George and Sid hit to the left side if the green, Richard to the right. Don hit the green and was left with a 15 footer
which he drained for a Birdie, a great way to start the game.

On # 2 Don’s Evil twin showed up and for the next two holes, he hung around resulting in a 5 and a 6. Then he was gone and Don played

good golf for the rest of the round, adding another Birdie on #7, for a 31

George matched Don’s Birdie with one of his own on #7, with Sid and Richard with pars on that hole.

Sid shot steady golf all day and finished with a 33. Richard stayed out of the water for a change and shot a 32.

George’s evil twin kept on comming back to visit him which resulted in a score of 37.

Judy Bess was out in front of us and Arthur Barnett played with her from hole # 2.

As we were finishing our round Howard and Dianne Stewart were starting thier round, hope they had a good round.

This Was the weekend of comebacks, Scott Hoch and Steve Lowery both did it.

Scott Hoch was trailing by three shots with eight holes to play, so he simply went back to basics.

The decision paid off. Hoch birdied five of the final eight holes for a one-shot victory in the Allianz Championship on Sunday.

After a bogey on the 10th hole, Hoch knocked in birdies on Nos., 11, 12, 15, 17 and 18 to finish at 4-under 68, one shot better than Brad Bryant and Bruce Lietzke. It was Hoch’s second win since joining the Champions Tour in 2006.

“It wasn’t looking good today,” Hoch said. “I just went back to basics instead of hitting shots according to conditions.”

He finished the tournament at 14-under 202.

Bryant was the leader in the clubhouse after shooting a 6-under 66, the best round of the day in windy conditions at The Old Course at Broken Sound. He started four shots behind second-round leader Jerry Pate, who was bidding to win his second straight Champions title.

Bryant was impressed by Hoch’s finish.

“That birdie (on 17) was just phenomenal,” Bryant said. “It’s probably the toughest hole out there today.

“When I finished, I thought we had an outside chance for a playoff. But the 18th was playing easy today.”

Hoch hit his drive down the middle and landed his second shot about 16 feet away for an easy two-putt for the winning birdie.

“Anytime you win a tournament, you have to have a little luck,” said Hoch, who took time to dedicate the victory to his ailing caddie, Greg Rita, who isn’t able to carry his bag. “Hopefully, he gets to come back and caddy for me again.”

Lietzke also held the lead briefly, but needed birdies at Nos. 16 and 18 to finish off a 4-under 68 to tie with Bryant at 203.

Eduardo Romero, who was tied for the lead until bogeying the 15th, tied with Bobby Wadkins at 12-under 204.

Keith Fergus, who eagled the first hole to get into contention, tied with Jay Haas and John Cook at 205. Pate and Tom Kite were next at 206.

Defending champion Mark James finished eight shots behind Hoch after shooting a 74 on Sunday.

Vijay Singh falters and Steve Lowery Wins after a frustrating 7 year drought

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. – Steve Lowery had gone more than seven years and 199 tournaments without winning, a drought that would have continued Sunday at Pebble Beach if not for a stunning collapse byVijay Singh.

Three shots behind when he stood on the 15th tee, Lowery made up quick ground when Singh made three straight bogeys, then won on the first hole of a sudden-death playoff with a 7-foot birdie. At 47, he became the oldest winner in the 71-year history of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

Lowery closed with a 4-under 68 and won for the third time in his career, all of them in playoffs.

Singh recovered from his three bogeys with a wedge that stopped 2 feet away for birdie on the final hole for a 71 to force the playoff. Both players finished at 10-under 278.

But the Fijian’s troubles only got worse playing the famous 18th hole at Pebble Beach a second time. His drive found a bunker to the right, and his second shot clipped the top of the bunker, leaving him 192 yards short of the green. A 4-iron for his third shot plugged into the side of another bunker, and he did well to blast out to 8 feet and make par.

 
if(!sops){if(p.sops){var sops=p.sops;}else{var sops=””;}} if(dUnitBox==true){boxAd=true;} if(boxAd){if((!dUnitSky)||(!dUnitSuper)||(dUnitBox)){place300x250();}}

Lowery’s birdie putt was good all the way, an amazing victory for a variety of reasons, least of all Singh’s collapse.

Lowery was No. 305 in the world when he arrived on the Monterey Peninsula. He finished 148th on the money list last year because of a wrist injury, and was given eight tournaments to make $282,558 to keep his card for the rest of the year.

That’s no longer a problem. Lowery earned US$1.08 million and a two-year exemption, sending Singh home to question whether his retooled swing can hold up under pressure.

Mike Weir (69) of Bright’s Grove, Ont., tied for 14th.

The first playoff at Pebble Beach since 1992 didn’t even seem remotely possibly when Lowery walked off the 14th green with a bogey. He was three shots behind Singh, who had just hit a brilliant flop shot to six feet to save par on the 13th.

Turns out that was a sign of sloppy play that followed.

Singh went at the flag on the 14th with a sand wedge from 92 yards, but it was a tad strong and spun down the slope, and the best he could do was chip to 20 feet and make bogey. He missed the 15th green to the left, chipped weakly and missed an eight-footer for par.

His fairway metal found a bunker off the 16th tee, and Singh powered that shot over the green, down the slope and into the back bunker. He blasted through the green and two-putted for bogey from the fringe to fall into a tie. Singh arrived on the 17th tee in time to watch Lowery hole a 20-foot birdie putt to take the lead, and if not for a couple of fortuitous bounces, Singh might not have been in a position for a playoff.

Singh’s three-foot par putt on the 17th swirled around the inside of the cup before falling, and his tee shot on the 18th was headed for a tree until it bounced off the trunk and deflected to the right. That gave him a clear shot at the green, setting up his wedge to two feet.

Dudley Hart, who started the final round tied with Singh, didn’t make a birdie until making three in a row at the end for a 72 to finish one shot out of the playoff. He tied for third withJohn Mallinger (65) and Corey Pavin (66).

Jason Day, the 20-year-old from Australia, finished alone in sixth after a 70.

Pebble Beach was the final tournament to qualify for the Accenture Match Play Championship. Pat Perez shot 72 and tied for 24th, but it was enough for him to get into his first World Golf Championship. Perez moved up two spots to No. 64, and withErnie Els not playing, he will face Phil Mickelson in the first round.

J.B. Holmes, who missed the cut at Pebble, dropped to No. 65 and gets Tiger Woods, provided no one else withdraws.
