HOUSTON GOLF LEAGUE

KEN KIM

 

As the League methodically moves through the season unprecedented situations will occur and this week is an example of that. We had a guy who has played on the PGA Tour, Mike Kullberg, his handicap was of course was a zero and we also had a certified PGA teaching professional Ken Kim who has played in the league the past two years and has established a handicap during that period. The conflict was between, a board member who was playing in the tournament, Chris Sawyer, who felt the field should be protected by giving Kim a handicap of a zero, because he is a PGA teaching professional. There is a big difference between a PGA Pro and a PGA teaching professional and especially when he’s been playing in our league the past 2 years. The board members options and concerns are important to me but sometimes common sense and what is best for the league must come first.  So, let us talk about the 2017 U.S. Open, it could have been the largest field and biggest payout tournament in league history, but Mother Nature had other plans. She dumped a lot a water on the course Saturday night and Sunday morning. So only the leagues’ die hard took on the challenge and it was a barn burner in both flights. The A Flight was very tightly contested between, Khris Colbert, the B Flight 2016 winner who's triple on 18 kept him out of the money giving him a 7th place finish and Mike Kullberg, who shot one under 71 and 6th place. Finishing with a pair of 70’s was the league’s number one players Jose Sanchez and Roland Turner the 2016 Champion. The top three was definitely up for grabs between Chris Sawyer, Jaime Villarreal, and Ken Kim. Villarreal was in the driver seat up until hole 15, where the Porsche he was driving hit a pothole and slammed into a ditch flipping over 4 times to give him a snowman 8 on his scorecard. The details of that horrific crash are still under investigation. Villarreal again lets a major slip through his fingers tips, but don't feel sorry for him he is working is a way to the top 3 on the money list and green is what makes him tick. Chris Sawyer goes 4 over on the last 4 holes to finish tied with Villarreal for 2nd place. The league is too competitive to try to win going 4 over in the last 4 holes.  Your own ineptitude should be placed squarely on your shoulders and not others.  Ken Kim played his best round since he joined the League his 35 on the front was the best in the field. He was first in putts and second in greens and fairways, deadly combinations. Big Congratulation to the 2017 U.S. Open champion Ken Kim.

ERIC VILLEGAS

 

I would like to apologize to everyone for getting the write ups out so late but I've been extremely busy the past two weeks. The B-Flight was also thrilling came right down to the wire, the 18 hole, the last putt, a real buzzer beater. Victor Rangel was on top of the mountain and was looking down at the field to win his first tournament of his career.  When you are at the top and haven't ever been there it's a cold and scary place. Your ball grows teeth and your clubs becomes heavier and harder to swing. Not a good spot for a rookie trying to wins his first tournament, not to the mention the biggest event of the year. Well, the young rookie stumbles and falls off the mountain on 14, 15 and 16 snowmen, triple bogey and double bogey. Only to find himself precariously holding on to a moneyless fourth place. Next was the two Gonzales boys they finished up tied for second place with a paired of 72s. With Victor falling down the Mountain he must of grab Hector Gonzales on 15 because they both made triples there. If Hector makes bogey he is the 2017 U.S   Open Champion and doesn't have to hear his buddy Glenn Green hazing him about his Masters Champion. Jayme Gonzales played solid all day his 41 on the back was two shots better than the field, but the 45 on the front was maybe 1 or 2 shots probably over his target goal. His back was bothering him but he managed to keep it together. Your B Flight 2017 Champion is Eric Villegas from MAGA his 42 on the front was the lowest in the field and was good enough to hold on for the Championship. The tournament was up for grabs and when the swamp was finally drained there was one man left on top standing on the bodies of the field in the B flight and that Man was Eric Villegas. Congratulation you are the 2017 U.S. Open Champion.
