While it'll be close to impossible to track every bag tag (there are now 140 out, with 60 still available), let's use this space to track #1 as it happens. Everyone who wins #1 is asked to not only put your name and date received on the back of the tag, but if possible, to report here.April 2nd:
Here's what's transpired so far in the 2008 KCFDC Bag Tag Challenge:
January 27: Rick Rothstein pulls #1 out of a box
March 1: Bill Neenan wins the tag in a match created by Rick when he announced in this thread. Bill shoots 58, Rick is at 67, Chris Timko gives Bill a good run as they were tied going into the 15th hole. After Bill parked #15, Chris went OB on #16 to go down by three. He ended up with a 62. Dan Weinert and Becky Stebbins contended for a while
March 2. Marshal Wolfe shot a first round 56 in the windy Leap Daze Tournament to get the tag from Bill w ho shot 58.
March 2: In the second rounds, Kevin Crist of St Joe shot a 53 in the 2nd round, edging Marshal by 3.
The tag will not be hiding in St Joe as Kevin has announced in the Leap Daze thread: "As for the #1 bagtag It's up in St. Joseph. If I come to town before wyco on sun. I'll post Time and place for anyone who wants a shot at #1. If not it will be in play in the advanced masters div."
I acquired the #1 Tag
from Fred Smith
at Rosey League last night. He had a little trouble on hole 16 which included a spit from five feet that he kinda flicked in upside down. Like a gentleman he accepted the extra stroke for a five. He hit some solid shots all around - I like the way he plays! I think the last time we played was at the KCFDC Championships - which he won
