SGL Summer Series .....

For the first time, the Saturday Golf League will have a playoff for the summer season. In past years, the SGL has only booked a few events during the summer months to keep the hard core golfers satisfied during the wait for the regular season to begin in September. This summer a full calendar of 10 events along with 2 playoff events were scheduled due to increased interest and participation. A total of 35 players qualified for the finals and will compete for $500 which will be contested in 2 consecutive weeks using a 2 flight format. Qualifications for the SGL Summer Series involved playing in at least 25% of the scheduled events along with being an active member of the league. Seeding points for the finals were based on the accumulated SGL points over the summer in combination with events played and flight wins. Final Round Results

Steve Richter and John Wilhelm finished third and fourth respectively.

Dave Dean and Val LeChuga finished third and fourth respectively.

Paul “Mick” Mickela won the third flight by playing great golf over the last three Saturdays. Mick finished with a first place and two seconds over that time.

The 2015 match play results are in for the season and there can only be one. This year we had 11 players competing in the double elimination bracket for the prize of $160 for 1st place.

In the championship playoff round for the title (round 8 at Toka Sticks), Jim defeated Jeff with a match score of 4 up with 2 holes left.

At Orange Tree Golf Resort, Jeff pulls off a 2 up and 1 hole left for the win over Jim. Congratulations to Jeff for his win!! Jim Bieleniewicz takes 2nd place for a $40 prize.
