As the League enters its halfway point, I am happy with the new changes and the addition to Golf Genius, but we need to do a better job in maximizing golf genius full potential. This is a wonderful tool and it must be utilized in a more effective manner. The correct scores must be placed in after each hole and check at the turn and before the official scorecard is turned in. The Scorecard and Golf Genius need to match throughout the round. I know mistakes can be made when entering the scores but that is why the need to be checked and reviewed by each player before the scorecard is turned in. I will not tolerate another situation like last week where someone thought they had won only to find out a wrong score was entered in golf genius. It’s really simple DO YOUR JOB check your score against golf genius and scorecard make sure it the right score. If not a two shot infraction will be placed on your card. It is your responsibility that they are correct. Do your job if you want to get paid. The Big Money Game at Cypresswood, was our largest single payout in league history. It has it Pros and Cons and I will briefly discuss them. First and most obviously is the $250 buy in, this game was optional meaning if you wanted to play the regular game you could still play. I guess I did not make it clear enough or you guys are not reading the website. Either way that was a quick fix. Secondly, is having two flights, if we do that it will delude the pot and probably not worth the $250 buy in. The only reason of having the two flights is to give everyone a better opportunity to win regardless of your handicap. But I truly feel by the time the next big money game roll around at Cinco Ranch on July 9th the handicap will be firmly in place. To reinforce, only the players who have five rounds in our system will be eligible to play in the Big Money Games.
The Big Money Game came down to the 3 players Joe Hart, Chris Allen and Jae Kim. At the turn, Hart and Kim were tied for first place. But actually Joe was going to get two pops on the back nine so it was his tournament to win but Hart quickly gave that away on the first three going 6 over par. Opening the door for Chris Allen who got hot on the back with a 39. Leaving Hart with bitter beer breath and a moneyless third place. Sometimes you need start with that man in the Mirror when looking for excuses of ineptitude. His 44 on the back was tied for highest number posted on the back nine in the field. Players can bitch and complain all they want but at the end of the day, numbers don't lie they the true reflection of the story of what happened in the tournament Bottom line your 44 on the back lost you the tournament, not the live scoring or someone score that was put in incorrectly. Jae Kim was able to hold off Chris Allen blistering back nine by one shot. To be The First Big Money Winner of $1200 but kudos to Chris Allen as he moved up to the number one on the Money List with over $1400 dollars. Maybe Lonnie Knowles will know who you are now since you just took his spot as top dog. So Congratulation Jae Kim on a Wonderful Win.
Mitch Moses pulled out of the Big Money a few days before the tournament began. He entered the regular tournament at , which was a $900 mistake. If he would have stayed and played he would have won The Big Money Tournament by 2 shots.
Mitch Completely blew away the field in the regular tournament game by 9 shots. He is starting to get more comfortable with tournament play and has dropped his handicap considerably to 13.5 on the cusp of the A flight. He hit 8/14 fairways and 9/18 greens, but had 38 putts 5 three putts if he wants to make it up to the Big Boy has to improve on that putting, if he does look out A flight he will be a contender. So congratulation Mitch Moses you just punched your Ticket to the Players Championship at in Louisiana.
