From Stephen Carey:
Unfortunately Pat Whelan will not be able to go to Myrtle Beach next week due to an untimely death in Ireland. Our best wishes are with Pat. If anyone is interested in filling Pat’s spot on the trip contact Gerry Murphy or Stephen Carey.
On Saturday, Woodlawn will hold its final event of the year. Coincident with the Woodlawn Partners best-ball, we will play a 16 man interclub match against Crown City to determine the winner of the 2014 Links Founders Cup competition.
As there has been uncertainty on how this tournament will be conducted because of the match, I would urge everyone attending to get to the Links well ahead of time. The organizers of the day are Tom Bennett and Damien Sweeney.
ny questions should be directed to them as I will not be playing on Saturday. Anticipate that you may not be paired with your partner, and there will be a lot of scorecards to be sorted out at the end of play. I ask that you make an extra effort to keep a neat, legible scorecard. The standard of recording scores has fallen to a new low this year. There are many inaccurate, incomplete, illegible and unsigned cards submitted each tournament, and that has to change!
As of 6 PM Thursday, the following have either informed Tom Bennett or me that they are playing:
Scales and 2 guests
If you signed up and somehow are not on this list get back to me. Or if you haven’t signed up and might want to play, you have until 11 AM Friday morning to get back to me.
Congratulations to Marty for capping off a tremendous year by winning Player of the Year for the Woodlawn Golf Club. Marty won two tournaments, was runner-up in the Club Championship, and won the Handicap Championship. He got additional points for a second place and a couple of 6th place finishes.
Congratulations to Marty Moss for overcoming Pat Costigan to win his second Handicap Championship
Congratulations to Bob Andrasick on winning his (I believe unprecedented) fourth straight Club Championship, beating Marty Moss in the 36 hole Final. The full bracket can be found on the Championships Page.

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
