Duel in the Desert

Fellow Phoenix Area #008 Club and Southern Arizona Golf Club Members (SAGC)

Get ready for the 1st Annual Duel in the Desert Tournament to be held in November!  This is a club vs. club event with only pride on the line!

General

·         Date: May 19th, 2012

·         Time: 8:00 AM

·         Course: Francisco Grande Golf Resort in Casa Grande (link contains course details and directions)

·         Price: $50 (includes golf, cart, trophy fund, and lunch)

·         Players: 12 players from each club will be allowed to play (24 total), so first to RSVP below AND pay will be chosen.

o   Note: if you already see 12 players from your club sign-up below, you should still sign-up below in case backups are needed.

·         Format: Team net stroke play (see Format section below)

Registration

To register for this event, simply enter your intentions to play in the blog below and include the following:

·         Tee box you will be playing from (see Rules section below for tee box selection details)

·         Payment choice (see Payment section below)

Payment

·         If paying by check, I will send you my mailing address

·         If paying by credit/debit card, please include your email address as I will be sending you an invoice from my PayPal account. Please note I will be including the service charge which PayPal charges.  This will be $1.80.

Format

·         Format is individual stroke play incorporating handicaps, course slope and rating.

·         Each club’s score will be the sum of all players’ Net Difference.

·         We will use the Target Score system to calculate a Net Difference that will be used to compare all results so that everyone is competing on the same playing field.  Net Difference will be calculated as follows:

o   Course Handicap = Handicap * Course Slope / 113

o   Target Score = Course Rating + Course Handicap

o   Net Difference = Gross Score – Target Score

·         Handicaps will be captured as of the last update (May 15th) as calculated by Stracka.

o   Only players with valid handicaps will be allowed to play.

Scoring Example

·         Gross score will be compared against  your Target Score to calculate a Net Difference (see example below)

Congrats to the SAGC for winning the Duel in the Desert. We'll get you guys and gals next year!

Here is a link to the final results of the 2012 Duel in the Desert: http://www.ushandicap.com/my/m..

I think my score was 114, but everyone needs to know that I killed 1689 mosquitoes out of the 1893 that bite me.

ArizonaBlue 5/19/2012 9:52:53 PM
Congratulations to my fellow SAGC members as we beat the Phoenix #008 members in a close competition.

Final results will be posted on Monday. I will post a link once I have uploaded the file.

Weather forecast: 65* starting out in the morning going up to 89* by noon. Winds at about 4 MPH. Couldn't ask for better conditions for the Duel.

ArizonaBlue 5/18/2012 10:34:57 AM
Jerry G has a good suggestion: Instead of one CTTP contest and one longest putt contest with each player putting in $5, we will have four CTTP contest ... one each of the par 3s ... and one longest putt contest. Cost is still $5 per person ... participation is optional ... if you don't want to play, you don't have to do so. This gives more opportunities to share the fun.

Pete-L 5/18/2012 10:16:08 AM
Table updated above with correct tee box selections for bcwin1 and akrasnow. They both initially selected Copper and changed to Blue. Course Handicaps and Target Scores updated appropriately.

ArizonaBlue 5/17/2012 11:50:52 PM
The trophy and medals have arrived ... just in time!

BUCKNUT 5/16/2012 10:36:33 AM
Damn! I'm jealous....yall have fun.

tothetop777 5/15/2012 6:43:34 PM
Nice pairings. Random? Man why couldn't you at least make my group 18A Bruce? I wanted to see how accurate my driver is to put the ball in your back pocket. FOUR! $1 on closest to pin? $50 Bruce! I will let you press in the Bar after the round! LMAO. Hey, I heard the green tee boxes have been removed. Call them and verify before we get there.

ArizonaBlue 5/15/2012 2:36:33 PM
CLOSEST TO THE PIN CONTEST: There will be a closest to the pin contest on the FG Signature Hole which is Hole #3. We would ask that everyone contribute $1 to this contest which will be collected on Saturday.

I plan to play for the tucson squad and my wife is willing to play if allowed. she has a USGA handicap and would be playing from the red tees and I will be playing from the Blue tees. I will pay by Pay Pale or check. teambecker@comcast.net

Pete-L 5/2/2012 11:49:08 AM
We are a little over two weeks away and things are heating up! As some of you already knew, I backed out a few weeks ago due to my daughter's Pre-K graduation being re-scheduled for this day. I found out a few days ago it was re-scheduled yet again... same day just later in the afternoon, so I will now be attending. Jo Ann from SAGC is already talking some serious trash, but we'll see who's laughing at the end. Let's get that trash-talking started!!! LOL
