GOOD GOLFING DAY!
July 25, 2006By: Don NicholsAnsley Tuesday Afternoon Golf Tour 
The
16 players
that made the cut for the
14
th
match
of the
2006 ATAG season
were glad to find that the front nine was alot more accommodating than last week’s punishing back nineas evidenced by the number of good scores posted. Despitescattered afternoon showers throughout the metro area, theAnsley in town nine was able to dodge the rain pellets until 7:15pm, when a 25 minute rain shower affected only the last twoholes of the third and fourth groups. To start the match, thefollowing teams were assembled by order of arrival on the firsttee with the first group teeing off promptly at 5:00 pm:

score card by the
Commissioner
(this is done every week)discovered a one point addition error in the team
 
totals.Normally the submission of an incorrect score card calls for a
disqualification
, but in this case, since the individual playersscores were recorded correctly, and because it would be ratherdifficult, not to mention unsightly, for the players to return theirbounty, the
Commissioner
only issued a stern
warning
and a
reminder
to all teams to
check the
 
math
before submittingthe score card (especially if the score keeper is
Morris
). Theday’s
patrons
turned out to be the first arriving
Team 1
members
C. Y. Young, Ron Majors
,
Brad Reese
, and
BrooksCowles
whose best ball score of 
4 under
earned them theright to make the formal presentation to the victors.
GUTT WINS LOW NET PURSEAGAIN! PLAYERS DEMAND REVIEWBY HANDICAP COMMITTEE!
Mike Gutt
, reportedly a 19 handicap, won the
Low Net
purseof 
sixteen bucks
by posting a round of 
41
, for a
net 5 under
,edging out by one stroke
Bill Meagher
,
Danny Morris
,
P. J.Wade,
and
Don Nichols
for the plenteous prize money. Thisfollowed his win two weeks prior when he posted a score of 
40—net 6 under
. At the players request, the money hungry
Mr.Gutt
(hereinafter known as the “defendant”) has been calledbefore the
Handicap Committee
to provide documentedevidence that he is not, in fact, a professional
sandbagger
ashis two recent victories might suggest. The
HandicapCommittee
has also requested from the archives of the
Ansley Golf Club
a record of all scores posted by thedefendant over the last ten years.
MEAGHER RETURNS TO FORM TOGRAB LOW GROSS! YOUNG HASBAD DAY!
In single digiter competition, the honorary
Low Gross
was wonby six handicapper
Bill Meagher
whose bogey free round,enhanced by one birdie, put him at the top of the leader boardwith a
one under
 
35
, narrowly edging out four handicapper
Jim Bernhardt
by one stroke and
P.J. Wade
by two shots.Bernhardt later lamented that he had eight birdie puttopportunities but managed to sink only one. The day’s
highscore
was earned by sixteen handicapper
C.
 
J. Young
whotripled and doubled his way to having a bad day with a score of 
48
and helping his team qualify as the day’s patrons.
NO SHOTS OF THE DAY, JUST GOODGOLF!
There were really
no “shots of the day”
reported because, assomeone noted, such shots are normally born out of necessityafter making a poor shot.
Jim Bernhardt
did receive honorablemention for his left handed 100 ft punch out on # 5 to enablehis saving par, and
Don Nichols
was crowing about his
270yard tee shot
to the top of the hill on # 5, but other than that
 
it was just good golf with a lot of fairways and greens resultingin some good scores as noted in the box scores below.
SIX BIRDIES ON THE DAY!BATELAAN CATCHES TYBER!
Whereas last week’s stingy back nine yielded only two birdies,this week’s front nine was more generous, allowing
sixtweeters
to be added to the
Birdie Club
totals. Adding totheir cumulative total were
Richard Batelaan
with
2birdies
( tying
Andy Tyber
as
leader in the clubhouse
) andone each by
Doug Gooding
,
P. J. Wade
,
Bill Meagher
, and
Jim Bernhardt
.
OTHER TIDBITS:
 
There was not much to report on the social activities thisweek as most of the players had to leave shortly after theconclusion of the match including this writer, and
Tim Martin
was not there to place free rounds on the table toencourage the players to linger longer. 
This week’s bad boy was
Marty Arnold
who was a
“nonotice no show”,
apparently because his butler neglected towake him from his afternoon nap. Nevertheless, under ATAG bylaws, he now joins other ATAG bad boys on
ATAG death row
where, should this grievous offense be repeated, he shall suffer
“death by boogada boogada”.
 
As previously announced,
Bill Benning
had a
hole in one
on # 7 at
Settindown
last week and was due to buy a roundfor those ATAGers present who had not already partaken of thecustomary freebie. Oddly, he was called away on business andwas unable to attend this week’s match. Nevertheless, look forhis ‘accounts payable” column to be cleared at his next
ATAG
appearance.That’s it for this week’s hebdomadal
Nickelodeon
(you’ll haveto look that one up). Next week’s match will be played on theonerous back nine. See you then!

Tip From The Pros:
Swing With The Slope: Whenfaced with an uphill or downhilllie, the first thing to keep inmind is to give the slope its dueby following it, not fighting it.On an uphill shot take the clubback low, and follow the slopeback and through. On downhillshots pick up the club, staydown, and let the club followthe downward slope.
Thought For The Day:
There is no since beingpessimistic. It wouldn’t workanyway.
