Round 2 Cart Pairings, Group partners, as well as round 1 scoring results will be posted here Sunday evening
Leave from Ingles parking lot by 7:15am. Driving time is 25 mins. Everyone must be at course by 7:45am. Please allow extra time for school bus delays and morning traffic. If you are driving directly to the course, and if I have not identified you, or mis-identified you in the list below, let me know ASAP
If you arrive earlier than 7:45am, please proceed to the Pro Shop, pay your green fees, get your poker chip, get a cart, find your partner, enter the optional skins pool, then go practice.
The seventeen 2014 TBC entrants participating in Round 2:
Ernie, Larry^, Peter, Steve, Bruce, Al, John H, Jose, Russ B, Casey, John P,
Greg**, Mike S**,, Ken**,, Bob B**,, Tony**,, Ted**, and Mark**, (non-TBC)
^Defending Bermuda Cup Champion
** Driving directly to Etowah
Opening Tee time is moved up to 8:18AM
Par Points will not change. We will continue to use the same value as Round 1. WE ARE PRE-ASSIGNED TO PLAY THE WEST AND NORTH NINES. If you established your Par Points using the "Closest to 5500 yards" tees, you will be playing from the GREEN tee boxes @ Etowah in Round 2. Others will utilize their appropriate tees.
ALSO NOTE CHANGE IN ROUND 3 VENUE: THE FINAL ROUND OF THE 2014 TBC WILL BE HELD AT BALD MOUNTAIN IN LAKE LURE THURSDAY AUG. 28.
INITIAL TEE TIME IS 8:42AM
Miscellaneous: You can enter the optional, skins game at the course, prior to play. Same format as Round One, i.e. every skins game $$ pool will be escrowed and distributed independently from round to round. The $$ per skin distributions will very likely differ for every round you enter.
You all handled the somewhat convoluted TBC scoring system very well @ Springdale! (Kudos to John P for his excellent prep work and his expert handling of the details!) The special hole prizes (10) will again be in play. Recall that some are individual achievements, some are awarded solely within your 3some or 4some, and the highest value awards are those where you compete against the entire field. They all will be denoted on your special scorecards and on the hand-out sheet prior to tee time.
Once again, a gentle reminder: Due to early commitments made by the golf courses to accomodate our annual tournament, we will play in virtually all conditions, including rain. Unless the course is closed or otherwise deemed unplayable, bring appropriate gear. If you are unsure on game day, check this website for any cancellation info, then call the golf course to see if they are open (828-235-8451), then call John P or Ted to confirm. Right now the forecast looks great for Monday (fingers crossed)
If like me, you got "Spasmed" at Springdale, don't fret because this IS the 2014 Bermuda Cup (best 2 of 3) and just as in Tour golf, comebacks are the norm. "It ain't over 'til it's over". (thx Yogi)
The Golf Banquet is scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 9 where all hardware and monetary awards earned during this season will be presented.
