Holy shit, that all happened fast.
When we originally set up the draft party idea, I just assumed we’d pick the teams and maybe do the second round random drawings. However, things escalated quickly. Before I knew it, we knocked out both teams and pairings for rounds one and two, plus the scramble groups. Great hustle out of you guys! I’m not going to break down the draft pick by pick, just know that I was the 8th overall pick and if I get paired up with anyone that was picked over me, I will tomahawk a club into your cart, Drunken Ben style.
Without a doubt, the highlights of draft night were Chris looking at Nathan looking to his newly drafted teammates for advice and saying he preferred a Bellicheckian style of leadership. And Nathan having absolutely no idea what Twitter was and asking Jeremy if his tweets would show up on the notepad app on his smart phone. Definitely two different cultures bumping heads here.
The rest of the draft was a huge success, except for when 50% of Team Bixler told me to my face that they could pull of tKO without me. YOU WILL RUE THE DAY. But here’s the important stuff. Teams, listed in alphabetical order.
|Team RDGC||Team Bixler|
|Nathan (Captain)||Chris (Captain)|
Round 1 Match Ups – Remember, these are handicap weighted, combined score match play rounds. Each match is worth six points towards their team total. Since handicaps aren’t locked in until the week before the tournament, I’ll figure out how many strokes going to whom (I think I used whom correctly there) then. But take a peak over at Fairway Files, if you want to start strategizing. Fairway Files is also extremely useful when trying to procure a Thai girlfriend, according to their banner ads.
Group 1 – Marty & Shane vs Nathan & Keith
Group 2 – Danny & Chris vs Greg & Mark C.
Group 3 – Kevin & Tall James vs Lloyd & Brendan
Group 4 – Pete & Mark S. vs Jeremy & Mike C.
Group 5 – Ben & Wally vs Austin & Asian James
Group 6 – Ian & White James vs Rich & Mat
Round 2 – Again, handicap weighted. Lowest net score is worth five points to their team’s total. Second lowest is worth three, third lowest is worth one, and last is worth zero.
Group 1 – Marty, Kevin, Nathan, Greg
Group 2 – Ian, Tall James, Mat, Asian James
Group 3 – Chris, Wally, Lloyd, Brendan
Group 4 – Ben, Mark S., Austin, Keith
Group 5 – White James, Shane, Mike C., Rich
Group 6 – Danny, Pete, Mark C., Jeremy
Scramble – Each stroke over or under par is worth five points towards your team’s total
|Bixler Group 1||Bixler Group 2||Bixler Group 3|
|Shane||White James||Tall James|
|RDGC Group 1||RDGC Group 2||RDGC Group 3|
So keep pumping in those fairway files scores (shout out to my 97!), we’re only six weeks away from the start of tKO Week.
