Match Play Madness

FINAL ROUND - Deadline Nov 26 and round 7 recap

ROUND 8 DEADLINE: Sunday, November 26th

[Note: Please schedule your next match ASAP...cold weather is on the way!]

ROUND 7 RECAP:

Round 7 has whittled us down to just 4 surviving players. Two in Flight 2 and two in Flight 3.  In Flight 2 Jennifer Whitaker first faced Kathy Whitfield at Highlands. After Jennifer's tee shot on #1 soared down the fairway -- coming to rest about 8 feet from the pin (where a rather startled and impressed foursome of men were still putting out)...Kathy pretty much figured her MPM chances were over for 2017.  Following that performance, Jennifer, now last player standing in the Losers bracket, rose like the phoenix to beat Anne Yuengert -  who had never, till then, even dipped her toe out of the Winner's bracket this year.  Since this was Anne's only loss - she and Jennifer will clash one more time to determine the Flight 2 Champion!

Likewise, in Flight 3, Nikki Allen who has had a monopoly on the Winners bracket had to forfeit to Karen Barrett in the Losers bracket -- because of scheduling difficulties.  This is Nikki's 1st loss as well, so she and Karen will have one more match to determine the Flight 3 Champion!

Parting is such sweet sorrow....but, alas, we must say "Cheerio" to Kathy Whitfield ....along with a heartfelt "Congratulations" for surviving 6 rounds unscathed in MPM!

Round 7 Deadline - October 29, 2017

ROUND 7 DEADLINE: Sunday, October 29th

[Note: Please schedule your next match ASAP.  As always, when you complete your current match - please keep going!]

ROUND 6 RECAP:

Round 6 has definitely gotten down to the nitty gritty! 

Flight 1: Eleanor & Barbee rumbled on the Ridge for the 3rd and last time - with Barbee the victor - making her the Flight 1 Champion.  A good reminder that a player can come back from the "L" bracket to be the champ!

Flight 2: Anne continues to hold onto the only spot in the Winners Bracket...thank goodness the coming round will finally produce an opponent for her. In the "L" bracket, Laura Johnson and Kathy Whitfield locked horns at Highlands. It was a close round, but Kathy walked off #18 the winner. Kathy and Jennifer will now vie for the pleasure of playing Anne.

Flight 3: Nikki, last one standing in the Winners bracket, finally has an opponent.  In the "L" Bracket Janna & Karen battled it out at Bent Brook and Karen won - in what Janna described as a "massacre." Ouch.  Having slashed her way through the Losers Bracket.....Karen will now face Nikki.  If Nikki wins then she will be the Flight 3 champion.  However, if Karen wins - she and Nikki will have to play an additional match to determine the Champion - since that would only be Nikki's 1st loss. 

Kudos (but farewell) to these players who have hung tough but are now out of MPM for 2017: Eleanor Strickland, Laura Johnson and Janna Paslay.

The weather is great now - but cold temps are on the way, so....please get your next match played ASAP and then move on to your next opponent!

Match Play Madness - Round 5 Recap and Round 6 Deadline

ROUND 6 DEADLINE: Sunday, October 1

[Note: Please schedule your next match ASAP.  As always, when you complete your current match - please keep going!]

ROUND 5 RECAP:

Round 5 has further whittled down the field of MPM players left standing. 

Flight 1: Eleanor and Barbee once again chose the Ridge as their battleground. Last time they played - Eleanor sent Barbee to the "L" bracket.....but, never one to throw in the towel, Barbee has fought her way thru the "L" players - emerging to face-off with Eleanor for a second time.  This time Barbee was the victor - giving Eleanor her 1st and only loss in MPM this season.  In double-elimination every player gets 2 losses before they are out - so Barbee and Eleanor will have one last show-down to determine, once and for all, the Flight 1 Champion!

Flight 2: Anne continued to rest on her laurels in the Winners Bracket - no doubt sharpening her claws for whoever emerges to challenge her. In the "L" bracket  - Ballantrae was the scene of a bloody battle between Laura and Jane. Laura's one-two punch of killer drives and dead-eye putting spelled "all she wrote" for Captain Jane. Rude. 

Flight 3: This will be Nikki's last round to take it easy in the Winners Bracket. In the "L" bracket Karen sent Vernita packing after a well-fought match at Bent Brook. Kudos to both of these first-time MPM players for hanging in for 5 rounds and counting.  

Parting is such sweet sorrow.....this round was "hasta la vista" for both Jane and Vernita.

More than ever -- we need to keep up the pace -- so please get your next matches played ASAP and then move on to your next opponent. You have 4 weekends to get in your matches but if you can get in two -- all the better!!

[Please remember to post ALL of your MPM scores.]

Match Play Madness - Round 4 Recap and Round 5 Deadline

ROUND 5 DEADLINE: Monday, September 4th

[Note: Please schedule your next match ASAP.  As always, when you complete your current match - please keep going!]

 

UPDATED BRACKET BELOW RECAP!!

ROUND 4 RECAP:

Round 4 has resulted in major bracket changes. Flight 1 is now down to just 2 contenders - Eleanor & Barbee; in Flight 2 - Anne now has the Winners Bracket to herself, as does Nikki in Flight 3. 

Flight 1: Eleanor still watched from her perch in the Winners Bracket to see who would emerge to challenge her and that player is Barbee. After Trish had to forfeit her match against Barbee - the "L" bracket was left with two titans (and friends) to duke it out on the Ridge...Barbee vs Pia - with Barbee triumphant this time around. Eleanor's had plenty of time to sharpen her skills - which will come in handy when she faces former MPM champion Barbee.

Flight 2: Anne carved out a solo spot in the Winners Bracket by ousting Jennifer after a long-drawn-out on the Valley. In the "L" bracket  - Kathy sent Rose-Marie packing and Jane won against Anna - after a beautiful early morning match at Inverness.

Flight 3: Janna reported that Nikki could "slap the cover off of her drives" and after their bout Janna joined the "L" bracket and Nikki became the single survivor in the Winners Bracket. Down below, Karen showed up with her A-game to put an end to the dominance of 3-time MPM champ, Carol, at Timberline. It looks like there's going to be a new name on the Flight 3 plaque this year. Vernita got a free pass from Pat who forfeited because of an over-abundance of summer travel plans! 

The list of those who have fallen now exceeds those still standing....this round we say fare-thee-well to: Tricia, Pia, Rose-Marie, Carol and Pat... nice work hanging in there through 4 rounds!

As always -- we need to keep up the pace -- so please get your next matches played ASAP and then move on to your next opponent. You have 4 weekends - including the long Labor Day Weekend - to get 'er done! 

[Please remember to post ALL of your MPM scores.]
