Jim Crandall, Palms to Pines Golf Association handicap chair, provided this report about the Association’s regular monthly tourney on Friday, Jan. 19, at the Cross Creek Golf Club in Temecula .
For the first tournament of 2018, the Association decided to play a four-man scramble instead of its regular stroke-play format.
The four-man scramble features teams of four players competing against the other teams. Each team’s players hit from the tee box. Then the team members choose the best of the four shots for the second shot. All team members then play that shot from the same location. For each remaining shot, they follow the same pattern and choose the best shot.
Play continues in this manner until the hole is completed. The team then records its score and maintains that format for all 18 holes. Since the teams get four chances at each shot, scores tend to be much lower than in individual stroke play.
One criterion is that each team is required to use at least four drives from each player. Since the teams are made up of both high and low handicap players, this can present a challenge because the higher handicappers are more apt to struggle with hitting good drives.
The team of Dennis Chavez (course handicap 9), Ken Garelick (25), David Hiemenz (40) and Lee Lanfried (26) had the lowest cumulative score and won first place with a 4-under-par 67.
Jerry Daquila (26), Barry Wallace (14) and Tony McLean (20, non-member) took second with a 2-under-par 69. This team only had three players, so they rotated the fourth shot.
And third place went to the team of Pete Capparelli (22), Jim Crandall (13), John King (25) and Chris Kramer (40) with a 1-under-par 70.
The winners of the closest-to-the-pin contests on the four par 3s were Chavez on hole no. 3; Crandall on hole no. 8; Pete Holzman on the 12th hole; and Capparelli on hole no. 17.
For this tourney, 3 points were awarded to each member of the first-place team, 2 points to each on the second-place team and 1 point to each on the third-place team. Everyone who participated received one-half point.
After six tournaments for the 2017-18 season, here are the current point standings for the club championship playoffs for the new season, which runs from August 2017 through July 2018:
