|Hugh Wins The BMW Championship!|
|The Commish sweeps the Summer pools and the Year-Long...|
This week was a close one. Hugh
rode the good Sunday play of T13 Jimmy Walker, 9th place Jordan
Spieth, T13 Patrick Reed and the not so good Sunday of T4 J.B.
Holmes to victory this week. He finished $2,747 ahead of
Chris. It was Hugh's 3rd win of the year, all coming in the
Summer Season. Chris needed just one less stroke from one of the
3 golfers he had different from Hugh. I managed a third place
finish, $156,628 behind Chris. Dan ended up 4th, $2,747 out of
the money, thanks in large part to Holmes' final round 74.
I ended up winning the Summer Season title, topping Bill by just over $372k. Brian G. came up from 4th place to grab the final money spot, $536k or so behind Bill. Hugh made a charge for a cash but fell $55,684 short and in 4th place.
I finished 1st in the "TMC" pool. Chris stayed in 2nd, about $281k behind me. Bill hung on to 3rd, just under $270k short of Chris. Brian was 4th, around $515k out of the money.
I made it a sweep of the pools decided in the Summer and won the Year-Long by a bit under $255k over Mike M. Jordie stayed in 3rd, $1.6 million or so behind Mike. Bill ended up on the bubble, missing a cash by a little less than $212k.
That's it for 2016. I hope everyone had fun. It was an interesting year. Our teams didn't rack up as much winnings as past years; we only had one tournament where someone's team got over $3 million versus 4 or 5 in the last couple years. I think there are just more golfers able to contend and win, which of course makes for much more interesting golf pooling. I don't see that changing in the coming years, even with Tiger coming back (that's a joke).
Those of you who still owe some money please get that to me as quickly as possible so I can pay those who paid up front and won. You can check and see what you owe (or won) and where to send the check on your Player Page under the View Current Balance link. I will also be sending out emails in the next week with the amounts owed, won, verify addresses, etc.
Thanks to everyone for playing, good luck in your football pools and I hope to see back next year. I promise we will start WAY before the Masters.
