2018 Golf Trip Results

Bears hoist: Moose, Steve, Mark and Whitey

It was a return home for the Golf Trip – back to Crown Isle!  This would be the 3rd time hosting the trip at Crown.  The weather was so-so, including a very wet final round, but it was a great weekend and great group of guys.  Low on drama and high on personal bests from a few of our golfers!  Best Golf Trip ever?

The Bears would win on a tie break over the Sharks!

My Three Stars:

1) Andrew White

Whitey rolls in a 30 cap after picking up the game a couple days ago. Throws up a personal best score and potentially breaks the records for bonus points for a D.

2) Mark Coulter

Typically a soft B, Mark was good for a couple decent rounds but not many bonus points. This time around Marky boy was racking them up going 4-1 and playing a major role in the Bears W.

3) Erik V

Another great year for EV. He finished second overall in points contributed. Almost an ace too. He doesn’t stray too far from the fairway he just doesn’t get in trouble.

That wraps up the 5th running of the Animal House.

Comments:

  • Moose: Another steady tournament has Moose capturing his 4th straight low gross.  4 low 80s does the trick.
  • Blake: Second in gross for the 2nd year in a row with a tournament low 77 on Sunday.  A consistent round that included zero birdies. A golf trip PB!
  • Jesse: Not his best effort, but he finishes in style with a solid 80.
  • Holt: He came out of the gate with an 81 at Morningstar that would have been in the 70s on a regular day, but couldn’t find back the debauchery.
  • Mark: Mark’s best showing on the Golf Trip with a 5th place finishing.  He only visited his dark place a couple times.  A golf trip PB with an 84 on Sunday!
  • Nelson: He started off solid with a 88 and 87 (great rounds under these conditions), but couldn’t fight off the heavy pressure of the trip finishing 6th overall.  Now he has his feet wet on the trip.  Next year should be good.
  • Erik: Once a regular D, Erik continually posts scores in the 80s and doesn’t stray too far off the rails.
  • Jamie: Unable to break into the 80s, Jamie’s only stain was that 99.  Way to not get into the 100s!
  • Kevin: Kevin posts a personal best 87 at Crown on Championship Sunday!
  • Lorne: Not Lorne’s finest scoring;95, 95, 95, 96 but at least he’s consistent.
  • Whitey: The Golf Trip MVP posts a career PB at Storey Creek with an 87.  He also racked up the bonus points too.
  • Steve: An 85 on Championship Sunday is a golf trip PB for Steve.  Not bad after a 108 at Storey Creek.
  • Nathan found a way to shoot in the 80s, 90s and 100s on this trip again.
  • Paul’s 93 at Crown Isle is an all time golf trip PB!
  • Dunner’s first showing was solid, including finishing up with a solid 93 on Championship Sunday.
  • Mike’s first showing was also solid, starting off with a remarkable 97 on those Thursday Morningstar conditions.

Final Net Stroke Play Standings:

Golfer Cap Rnd 1 Rnd 2 Rnd 3 Rnd 4 Tot

Erik V 22 1 -5 5 -7 -6
Paul C 27 1 -6 6 -4 -3

Nelson C 13 3 2 12 9 26
Scott H 8 1 13 7 10 31
Lorne W 15 8 8 8 9 33

This was the Whitey show.  A misplaced cap at 30, but he shot a career PB 87 and that pretty much seals your crown as a the Golden Sandbagger.
