New champions will be crowned

The Scheuer-Pachta duo reigns terror no more. The 2020 defending champions faltered in their opening round match against stalwarts Cravens-Gerber, losing convincingly 29-15. Even three Scheuers on the course at once couldn’t prevent disaster. When asked by a downtrodden Pachta if some statistical magic could be arranged for the eliminated partnership, the BOSS replied, “someone’s gotta run that damn side game!”

This opens up the final four of the Championship Bracket to the parking lot blockbuster matchup of Kline-Kline vs Detore-Prince. The other half of the bracket sees Cravens-Gerber meet up with Hengehold-Adams.

In Bluebonnet Bracket news, of which it only seems that the Kommish cares, a nice final four of Booher-Callahan, Kaufman-Stanula, Ice-Woodward, and Creegan-Kaufman emerged from the scorched earth of Eagles Nest’s front nine. Booher-Callahan aim to save the league from any more Kaufman-on-Kaufman meme crime by taking down Kaufman-Stanula. Of course, we also need Stanula at the top of his focus for the TPFFL draft food later this weekend.

A Few Updates

Figured I run the forum, so I’ll share some updates:

  • I’ve updated the Schedule page to reflect our most recent rainout week. Some of the previous dates may not be correct (July 1 should read July 8), but the remaining schedule from July 15 going forward is correct.
  • I made two scoring corrections from Week 10. Those are reflected in the standings. I incorrectly assigned sub values in two matches.
  • Please don’t hesitate to reach out with scoring questions. As the season winds down, I recognize each point matters. My only ask is to avoid the time before teeing off on Thursdays – I’m busy trying to get the league organized and get in some semblance of a warm up.

Yours in Golf.

Who’s ready?

Sorry, Wags. You’re the only lefty the BOSS knows.

Despite the morning rain, all forecasts point to golf this evening. Cart path only? Only Jason at the Nest knows. Regardless, be ready for some SpongeBob Splash Golf tonight at the Nest.

I’d also save the complaining when it comes to the conditions. Here are the average scores through four weeks:

WeekAverage Strokes / Golfer
149.6
249.1
348.4
450.7

As you can see, our nicest two weeks weather-wise, Week 1 and Week 4, produced the worst two average scores…around 50 strokes per golfer. Easily the worst weather week, Week 3, yielded the lowest scores. Grab your umbrellas, gentleman, looks like all us lousy golfers are mudders, too.

See you at the nest.

BOSS

New Stuff

Gentleman (using that term as loosely as the dictionary allows), sorry for the delay this week in getting scores and standings online. Been a busy week/weekend in the Booher household.

I’ve added a new page to the Results+Skins page. There is a link to the Week 3 match scores. It might be hard to read but its better than nothing at this point. You’ll see everyone’s gross shots, the adjusted score for the match, and points earned in the match. Any mistakes, please let me know. I’m working on getting Weeks 1 and 2 up there in the next week or so.

Please come find me if you have a question or concern.

BOSS

Back at it

Another iffy weather week means another week of iffy forecasting and armchair meteorology. Complaints about decisions regarding the postponement of golf can be emailed to the BOSS at gogetadegreeinmeteorologythen@torreypinesgolfleague.com. In all seriousness, though, if Jason at Eagles Nest tells us we can’t play, we can’t play.

The schedule has been updated to reflect last week’s postponement. So far we have the season reaching its end before Labor Day Weekend but weather may likely change our plans.

Thanks to everyone who reached out with scoring questions after last week. It’s possible the BOSS can make mistakes and the TPGL runs in a much more transparent way when compared to the ginger-headed operation at 345 Park Avenue.

The forecast calls for afternoon thunderstorms. If they’re of the pop-up variety, it’ll be a coin flip. For those of you interested in learning more, please check out this link from the National Severe Storms Laboratory or visit the National Weather Service Storm Prediction Center website:

Finally, the Columbus Blue Jackets play Game 4 Thursday night at 7:30 pm. After golf festivities will likely include watching the game for those of you interested.
