The Farmer and The Dog suspended.........1st Annual CCC Harvest Cup.......Fall League Standings

In an announcement this afternoon that appeared on major news networks even before whatever Hillary and Trump were doing today the USGA, IGA, CCC and The Franey Report have officially suspend the GHIN: Golf Handicap and Information Network privileges of Papa Joe Pick and Cuda Junkyard Dog. 
Some ask WHY has this happened.......simply put....THEY DON'T USE OR RESPECT IT ANYWAY! 
A golf handicap is a numerical measure of a golfer's potential ability. In stroke play, it is used to calculate a net score from the number of strokes actually played during a competition, thus allowing players of different proficiency to play against each other on somewhat equal terms.

Money game - play scratch and they win
Fall League - MP1 and MP2 get the handicaps they deserve - match tied 

The famous Twosome played like Bison on Sunday! 
Take a look at this flyer describing this awesome upcoming event for the members at the Carroll Country Club. It is wonderful that a few of our members are trying to put on an event that will take us into the start of Thursday Trivia nights.  Please ask questions if you have any and help me promoting this event to insure its success! 

Here are the standings of fall league. 

Just saying.........

This is what makes businesses successful.......Getting it done Chico! 

It was a disappointing week at Kinnick Stadium. Congrats to the Bison! A one loss Hawkeye season is just fine with me! It is a new week and it starts at 11 AM Saturday. 

Congratulations to my friend Craig's Huskers on their impressive win over the DUCKS! 

Did you know that I was on a pit crew. Only one to wear white golf shorts at the track. That's me! 

Have a great week! 

As always ON IOWA and GO HAWKS!

To all of my ISU fans.......I will cheer for you next week....Go Hawks!

It's the eve of the big rivalry game that divides the State of Iowa. I hope that the best Hawkeye team wins! This is the only game of the year that I want to see the Cyclones lose. So let it all happen and Sunday morning may we all wake as one State again! Until then I really want the Hawkeyes to win!

Kirby Pettitt aces his way to Bill Franey Open victory!

2016 Bill Franey Open Champion Kirby Pettitt with Tournament Director Mike Franey

Kirby Pettitt uses a hole in one on the par three second hole of the Jefferson Community Golf Course to propel him to a victory in the 11th annual Bill Franey Open Golf Tournament. Pettitt shot an seven under 65 on the first eighteen holes and led Micah Destival of Jefferson by three. The championship nine was cancelled due to some weather that moved through the Jefferson area.
Championship top four finishers
Jefferson Community Golf Course golf pro Micah Destival finished runner-up for the second consecutive year. 2010 champion Aaron Ahrendson finished 3rd followed by 2011 Champion Scott Quandt.

Two time champion Mike "Jewels" Eckerman was on the aging golfers disabled list with a back ache. I do want to thank the reigning Carroll Country Club Champion on the donation of the champion's trophy. Bud Two Troy Auen was still recovering from his 50th birthday on Friday. Cobra Steve Sinnard was in Chicago for the Billy Joel concert probably with another politician.

That's it for now. Thanks for all who played in this year's 2016 Bill Franey Open!
