BACK NINE PREVAILSAGAIN!PLAYERS STRUGGLE!
July 18, 2006By: Don NicholsAnsley Tuesday Afternoon Golf Tour 
It was a
hot day
with temperature in the
high 90’s
thatsaw
19 players
take on the challenging
back nine
and,once again, the back side prevailed. For some reason, asimple rearrangement of the tee boxes on the same nineholes seems to make those holes a lot harder for
ATAGers
as evidenced by the higher scores posted bymost of the players. Whereas last week’s front nineproduced individual net 5 under and net 6 under scoresand team scores of 10 under, 12 under, and a recordtying 16 under, the back nine limited the
low net to only2 under
and the
winning team score at
 
only 7 under
.Maybe it was the heat (did I say it was hot?), or assomeone suggested, the Hezbollah, but whatever thereason, the back nine proved to be formidable. Afterdrawing numbers to assemble the following teams, thematch started promptly at 5:00 pm with all players, asusual, having high expectations.

fate.
7 UNDER TAKES IT! TIE BREAKERDECIDES THE ATAG RECORDLOSER!
T
eam 2
members
Doug Gooding, C.J. Young, TimMartin
,
and Richard Gilmore
—three 16 handicappersand one 19—ended up the winner despite scores of 47,44, 44, and 53 respectively, managing to brother in lawenough times to beat the field. Providing the premiumbrew to the victors, in a close race to the bottom settledby the tie breaker hole, were
Team 4 members DannyMorris, Don Nichols, and Tom
 
Kisgen
who, as athreesome, struggled to 2 over, adjusted to
1 over
withtheir draw partner, putting them into a
tie for
 
the worstround of the day
with Team 5 which, oddly enough,included their own draw partner
Ron Majors
. The tiebreaking lowest handicap hole # 14 was won by Team 5,much to the relief of everyone on that team except for theunlucky Majors who simply moved from a
“skating”
team to
the losing team
. (the “luck of the draw” as theysay) The net score of 
1 over
from a foursome is an
alltime ATAG low
—so to speak.
BUIST (who?) TAKES LOW NETPURSE IN ONLY SECOND ATAGAPPEARANCE! INVESTIGATIVEPROBE LAUNCHED!
New Ansley member
Bill Buist,
in only his second
ATAG
appearance, won the
$19 purse
(note to
Batelaan
and
Benning,
you one buck each to the pot) by recording aself imposed 20 handicap score of 
2 under
. As a newAnsley member, Buist does not have as yet an establishedAnsley handicap, but does have an “internet kept” indexof 17 + at area public courses which was interpreted byhis team’s score keeper as a
20 handicap
.
Buist
agreedto keep the funds in escrow until the
HandicapCommittee
completes its own review which will alsoinclude a
criminal background
 
check 
in view of the factthat he was reportedly sponsored by
Marty Arnold
.(Arnold later denied knowing him).
BATELAAN’S LOW GROSS NOT SOLOW! GILMORE CLIMBS TO THETOP!
The honorary
Low Gross
was won by
Richard Batelaan
,one of only two single digiters present, who had a lessthan impressive
41
including 5 bogeys to go with his onebirdie. At the other end,
Richard Gilmore’s
42 on thefront nine last week escalated to a
53
on the back nine,putting him at the
top of the chart
, so to speak, for the

day’s match.
GOODING AND BATELAAN HAVESHOTSOF THE DAY!
Doug Gooding
 
and Richard Batelaan
shared
“Shot of the
 
Day”
honors on the same hole but with differentteams.
Gooding
had back to back good strokes on #10when his 130 yard approach shot landed within 10 feet of the pin which he then putted into the hole for a
birdie,net eagle
.
Batelaan’s
approach shot from a similardistance on the same hole actually
rattled the pin
before dropping within a foot of the hole for a
tap inbirdie.
ONLY TWO BIRDIES!
The back nine yielded only
two tweeters
on the day—one each by the aforementioned
Gooding
and
Batelaan
whoadded to their cumulative total in the
Birdie Club
.
OTHER TIDBITS:
It was high drama while the Team 4 threesome waited tosee who their draw partner would be, needing help ononly two holes to escape the bottom.
Ron the bartender
wastapped to pick the random number which turned out to be
Ron Majors
. That turned out to be an unlucky draw forthe beleaguered threesome as well as for Majors who followedhis front nine score of 40 the prior week with his worstround of the season with the
big 50.
 
 
Two Glove Tom Thornhill
, as a member of the Ansleygrounds committee, again asked for suggestions to bringbefore the committee, the most popular of which was to
install a foot bridge in front of # 2 tee box
to speedup play by circumventing the need to walk in the line of the players on # 1. 
Social activities were limited on this night as most of thegroup dispersed early to seek relief from the heat (did Isay it was hot?), but the atmosphere was livened up alittle by jokes by
Richard Gilmore
,
Don Nichols
, and
Tom Kisgen
. Opting to ignore the heat (did I say?) and tostay into the evening to have philosophical discussionswere
Doug Healy
,
Russ Jobson
,
Tim Martin
, and
DonNichols
.Next week we go back to the friendly front nine. See youthen!
