TOURNAMENT DIRECTOR'S REPORT

January 19:  Los Lagos from the SILVER TEES (5900 yds).  Get acquainted team play.  Make some new friends.   I form the teams with A, B, C and D players.   So you guys and gals who can’t hit it far, this is for you.  Let’s have fun.

FEEDBACK:  The new 2012 schedule is out.  Your feedback is important to us.  Please consider using email to send us a note following each event.  

PACE OF PLAY: I will continue to remind the club of the three worst delay of game habits at each event.  It will be displayed at check-in.  But there is another issue I want to bring to you.  While your foursome may be staying with the group ahead (pace of play),  I have received notes that we have a few players who are just plain SLOW and this effects others in your foursome.  I do not like to read entries that say “pls do not put me with ____.”   So what am I asking?   Please think of your own play and habits.  Observe others.  Are you slow?  Way too deliberate in your routines?  So please, all of us should be improving in this area.  

SCORE CARDS:  Are we improving?  I don’t know.  4 cards had errors.  7 cards were not complete with net or adjusted gross scores if necessary.  Sure would help your handicap director.

Rain policy: Normally if the course is open, we play.  But, if it is really coming down on game day, call the course (714 540-7500).  Your committee will make the decision that morning and tell the course.

PRESIDENT’S CUP

Entry due by Jan 25.  First 16 to play. Send your check to Jim Thornton.

HANDICAP REPORT

A review of the scorecards from the December 1 tournament revealed a posting error rate of 10%.  That is a more than acceptable rate.  Overall, the club is doing a very good job of posting their CMSGA tournament scores accurately.  In the December 1 tournament, there were 40 participants and only four posting errors.

The four players who posted erroneously are:

Jack Naughton - posted "home" instead of "tournament" score

Lee Berlinger - posted "home instead of "tournament" score

Wayne Duboise - failed to adjust score.  Posted a score too high

Richard Swingle - failed to adjust score.  Posted a score too high

Those errors have been corrected by your handicap chairman.  As a reminder to all members, we post all (postable) scores as "T" scores.  If you make an error in posting, please call or e-mail me and I will correct it for you.
