Scores are up...

http://www.pdga.com/tournament/tournament_results.php?TournID=7390


Check out the 951 rated player winning intermediate.....  :o


Not sure about that.  I looked up his PDGA number and put it in there, because what Mark Ehlert sent me did not have a PDGA number listed.  It may or may not be the same Jeremy Fox.  It probably is the same guy, but there was no way to verify the guy's rating anyway...don't know if Mark got the file from PDGA with the ratings for expired players.  He apparently did not get the password to put the scores up online, so I had to do it.

Missouri....our state animal is sterile, our state rock is lead, and we elected a dead guy to the U.S. Senate.  Of course, he was the best candidate.

I hope that knocking me off of my high horse doesn't involve shooting the same score as i did when we played on the same card in the 3rd round ;)

Eric K. and I had that all worked out before that round, my job was to trick you into shooting poorly so he could catch you....  ;D

eric played a great final round.  he nailed a 25 footer from behind a tree on our last hole to go ahead of me.   in truth, it was nice to be able to spend the last day on cards with players that i've spent a lot of time competing with/against.

the finish didn't mean much to me at all, though it was nice to cash a little bit.  those courses really killed me last year, especially oakland front, and it was nice to extract a little revenge.  indian hills still has its revenge coming.  oh well, always next year!

I had a lot more fun playing in a division were I had a fighting chance at winning anything.  Plus the level of play is much more laid back and stress free which helps everyone play well.

Great time, great tourney, great people, normal sandbagging BS....and proud of it!

Recieved my first EVER tourney plaque also....well other than some rock I had to go pick up on the course to stick my 2nd place brass plate on for the LSD doubles a couple years back...how lame is that!

I don't understand the SLAYER term...but I'm assuming we are talking about the same person.

ET phone home....

It was fun to be on a card with so many rule warnings and nothing to come of them....

Eric Twedell......  as I recall Slayer is his favorite band.

Ask him about his partner for doubles at the Wide Open in 2003......  You think he was annoying at the Mid-Am, you should check him out when he's crazy drunk on whiskey. We had a good time.....   ;D

No, YOU guys are cracking me up. Love it. Yes I had some issues with the slayer at first (first round at the hills). In fact had all kinds of issues, sh1tty course, poor spotters, rain, and a  poor attitude, but got over it and fell into the groove of playing golf...and that is why we hit the course time and time again.
   An excellent time all in all and what a showing from KC. Congrats to all. Thanks for the props Palmer. See you all in OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOlathe, then the Lion's Den. E
