Because Woodlawn will play the Crown City Golf Club in The finals of the Links Founders Cup on the day of our final event of the year, the partners format will be altered to be a two-man net best -ball event, NOT a two-ball Scramble. Tom Bennett will be putting together a 16-man team for this event. Due to the format change, Links members can play in the Links tournament, The Woodlawn tournament, and the match against the Crown.

In other news, Bob Andrasick defeated Martin Moss in the Club Championship over 36 holes. However, Martin bested Pat Costigan in the Handicap championship. With those points , he also clinched Player of the Year. Congrats to all.
The only titles still not decided is the B Scratch, with Pat Costigan and Bill Marshall still needing to play another 18 holes. And the Partners final will have to be decided by 54 holes, as the teams of Finnegan-Mulligan and Browne-Maher are tied after 36 holes

Thank you, Jim
To the guys that r interested in the myrtle beach trip to the legends, details r as follows :being there are only 2 flights into myrtle beach by spirit airlines, we were leaning toward flying in wed nite the 5th of November on the 630pm flight. We would play Thursday either 1 or 2 rounds and then play Friday and sat . Or we can play 2 rounds Friday,Sat we would play and the last flight is at 213pm,so we could stay sat and leave sun on the 906am flight or the 213pm flight.we can stay for 3 nights or 4 nights, it is same price.just figured it would be easier to wake up Thursday and play instead of getting down there at 130pm in the afternoon.So it would be 4 days and 4 nights or if u want to come back Saturday u would be cutting close if we don’t get a 730 or so tee time. So I want a final count in order to make reservations. Let me know who is coming so Stephen can call and make reservations. Get back to me by Sat and let me know who is in. Remember if u want to come back sat, I will try to get early tee time so we can play and then go to airport. If u want to play and not be in a rush we can come back Sunday.
From Jim Murphy:
A lot happened Sunday as we played our final event of the year at ever-challenging Split Rock. It was cool and quite breezy, and it was challenging to find a ball a few feet in the thick rough with the low Autumn sun. A few finals were played. In the Partners, Joe Browne and Donal Maher staged a furious comeback from 6 down to tie the Monaghan Marauders ( Frank Finnegan and Dominic Mulligan) after 36 holes. That forces another 18 holes to determine the winner. In the Club Championship, Marty Moss will need to weave a similar comeback to overcome the early lead enjoyed by Bob Andrasick. And in the "B" bracket, reports are that the Costigan-Marshall match might have set the game back a hundred years, as the participants recorded 199 strokes to a tie after 18 holes.
A far as the tournement on the day, here are the results:
1st Jim Murphy 39 points (22 on back 9)
2nd Darren Talbot 39 points (21 on back 9)
3rd Pat Whelan 35 points
4th Steve McCrimlisk 34 points
5th Donal Maher 33 points ( 18 on back 9)
6th Damien Sweeney 33 pints (16 on back 9)
CTP 4th hole Steve McCrimlisk
CTP 16th hole The ever-complaining ( and 7 time club champion, in case he hasn’t told you himself) Tom Bennett !

Our next tournament will take place on Saturday October 18 at the Links. It will be a shotgun start at 10AM….please let me know your intention to play sooner rather than later!
