Results from round 7 of Race to Grand Ducal

The weather was wet and windy if you teed off early, from 6pm onwards it was lovely though….hope you early golfers have dried out….

Ernest (our starter) took the big prize on countback from Del Boy with 19pts, and Steve Brown collected third prize on 18 pts. Fantastic scoring, the handicapping agency apologise profusely for this outrage, their cards have been marked!

Longest was Jess and nearest was Steve B…well done to the prize winners, and a big thank you to our starter and our beloved sponsors….all hail Citco!!!

Round 8 is 27th July (YES IT IS A TUESDAY) and Craig Lambourghini Ferrari will be the starter….

Current status at the top is;
Jess leads by one point from Frank Maitry with Johnny Hill a little short of the mark….the rest of us have some work to do (Johan – i mean golf) if we are to catch these boys!

SHRM WORLD MATCHPLAY

Jerry Grbic is thru to the Semis, well done…his 8 points on Wednesday night was more than enough to knock out Johan.

He will be joined by;
Monty or Gillies.
Johnny Hill or Uncle Merve.
Del Boy or Paul Goes.

The SHRM golf balls are certainly producing some excellent scoring, no need for Pro V 1’s next year Bart !

Bart our (quiet, shy and nearly retired) sponsor is offering a chance of a lifetime to the winner, his executive cottage in the wilderness of Newfoundland….suitable for good golfers and flyfisherman, (who have all been knocked out).

The trophy is just a further reward to the all conquering champion, and Monty is bidding for a repeat of his 2009 success.

de VERE PAIRS

Next week sees the FROGS / de VERE Pairs event….we have a strong turn out with some more Golfedoutalcoholics threatening to play (I will ensure society handicaps are adhered to)….still some early tee times available, although watch out for wind and rain between 5pm and 6pm!

Thanks to our new sponsors….WOODGE is unavailable to defend his halve of the title, so who can wrestle the trophy from the 8 times champions Steve the Daddy Kaiser? (Not me, am playing with Merve).

KEEEEEPPP FROOGGGGINNNN

Season round-up

One major problem for the webmaster when unable to attend the FROGS events is that some results arrive here with a major delay.
However, I have just been informed that our executive editor and master mind, Mr David Hopwood, claimed the win at the three club challenge.
Steve Kaiser and Phil Woodger won the LAB Pairs in style.
Check your e-mail to see his latest analysis regarding the FROGS’s past, present and future and last but not least the hairy situation in the Friggen’Mittee.

Last event of the season is the KPMG Individuals scheduled for tomorrow at Canach.

Results from previous years

Halfway stage results from the CITCO Grand Prix 2009

Delayed information as the webmaster was not informed…

Quoting Mr Botfield:
“Well done to all participants in Saarbrucken last night…what a fantastic meal….well done Jonny Hill for an excellent trip !!!!

Last night was the half way stage of the CITCO Grand Prix (see attached leaderboard, yep it’s Botfield on Top)….many thanks to our beloved sponsors, it’s brewing up for another tight end of season battle and even Mr Biggar is still in the hunt….come on everyone, fantastic prizes and honours are still up for grab for all of us underachievers (that’s how Bart refers to us all)…..

Botfield found some form and scored 18 pts, narrowly beating Gillies 17 and Luc (also 17) into 2nd and 3rd place…with Frank (Nearest the Pin) leaving before the prize giving and Gillies winning the shortest ever Longest Drive, these prizes were subsequently awarded to Dennis (16) and Winters (15)…will give a sleeve of FROG balls and maybe a glove too to Frank next time out !!!

Last place went to the man who lost his wallet, Mr TIM TOBIN with 8 pts, but given his state of distress about the lost wallet, it was tempting to name and shame the 2nd worst player of the night (MR CRAIG FERREIRA “phone number deleted”) but of course the rules of this society means that i can’t give out that information…

A clean sweep of the only guest prize was performed with an amazing 18 pts from Serge Bijnens, who was suitably rewarded with a FROGs t-shirt and balls and in addition a one and half stroke cut to his handicap !!! Welcome back Serge !!!

No more FROG events in June, but unhook those caravans…round 6 of CITCO Grand Prix is on July 1st at Preisch and it will NOT be played on the German 9 !!! Round 7 is set for Junglinster on the 15th and Round 8 also Junglinster on the 29th !!!

In between we have the famous “LAB Pairs falling out with your partner if he is called Steve Brown” competition at Canach on 22nd) (Steve, will you be my partner again this year?) Sort yourself into pairs, you still have a few weeks to ditch one another…also the RYDER CUP will be held at Canach on the 25th…the FROGS have won it ONCE and it has been played for at least three times….it is our DESTINY….FREEDOM YA BAS !!!!
Sorry a wave of patriotism has swept me of my feet and filled my eyes with tears….maybe just hayfever…back to normal now…

Finally in the SHRM matchplay, one result from last night saw Botfield beating Gillies on the last hole…see schedule attached and get your ties played very soon as it is the holiday season coming up !!!!

Anything that i have forgotten is nothing to do with ignorance…but if it is due to sheer arrogance, then i don’t apologise for that !!!”

SHRM matchplay results

Great start to the season 2009!

Well done Chris Juste, he was an excellent starter for Round 1 of the CITCO GRAND PRIX and the result was lots of golf played in daylight, although a few of the SHRM matchplays went to extra holes….when will night vision goggles become part of this great sport????

Many thanks to Grand Ducal, the course was (as usual) in good condition, and the greens (as always) offered much for the discussions in the bar. The food was excellent and a room with a television was provided so some could watch the big football game. Stirling Albion beat Montrose 3-1 !

Also, many, many thanks to CITCO, SHRM and KPMG for continued sponsorship…and also please note TWO NEW additional benefits of FROGs membership….SPORTS WORLD in HOWALD will offer 12.5% discounts to FROGs, and LEON MARKS (at JUNGLINSTER) will offer 45 minute lessons for EUR 50 (instead of the EUR 60 he charges me).

Only two bad scores were handed in….actually one of these was a 4 pointer for Bernard, which for him is quite a good score, therefore there was only one contender for the WORST SCORE OF THE NIGHT – the practice on Tuesday night obviously didn’t help, did it MR JONATHAN HILL?

On to the main prizes, three players shot 17 points….sadly Duncan Tippin limped home and earned himself 4th place on the night, just outside the prizes.

A good finish from SIMON BAKER helped him to 3rd Place, and two sleeves of FROGs balls AND a glove.

An even stronger finish from AYZO van EYSINGA to take 2nd place and collect a Glenmuir golf shirt and glove.

But on the night, only one person mastered his game and tamed the Ferocious Forest of Grand Ducal…scoring 20 points, and collecting a wonderful PING golf bag…..Mr STEFANO CICCARELLO….congratulations to our leader of the CITCO GRAND PRIX.

AYZO also battered his ball to achieve the LONGEST DRIVE, and JONATHAN BUCKLEY sweetly caressed his tee shot to claim NEAREST TO THE PIN.
