Mark Kontak finished the 2021 TMGA strong with a near flawless round of golf that included 5 birdies and 1 lone bogey. He had 45 points in the modified Stableford traditionally used in the TMGA finale, which was good for a 5 point win over both Steve Snyder and Alan Holman who both carded 4 birdies and four bogeys for even par 71's and 40 points. Brian Simmons and Mike McCarthy were next with 39 points.
Mark had 47 net points, while Steve Snyder and Jim Kennedy had 45 points and split 1st and 2nd place $$.
Congrats to our Player-of Year winners-Mitchell Kontak had a tremendous year which included winning the SPJermain Match Play Championship, the TMGA Stroke Play Championship, and the Wolf Memorial and he is the Barry Latta Scratch Player of the Year!!!! His Dad Mark Kontak, also had a strong year and was second in points. The net Player of the Year was tighter, but Scott Conrad once again came out on top, despite missing a few events. Congrats to both players for a great year!!
NOTE: Things got hectic yesterday trying to get top finishers paid and there were some inadvertent mistakes made. PLEASE check the results and check the payouts versus what you got paid. If we owe you winnings or additional winnings (or if you owe us) please let us know by emailing email@example.com and we will correct by crediting to next year or getting the winnings to you by mail if preferred--sorry about the confusion.
Meeting notes: A) officers remain same for 2022
B) Aiming for Ironwood for TMGA opener in 2022
C) Monroe CC to be replaced by Carrington, Sandy Creek or Giant Oak depending on availability and price
D) The TMGA Stroke Championship will be moved from it's July dates to the weekend of the Wolf Memorial and will be called the Wolf Memorial TMGA Stroke Championship (this spreads out the multi day tournaments)
E) A one day tournament will be scheduled at the end of July to fill the gap with the moving of the club championship
F) The Toledo Am format has been altered to hopefully attract more players and will have scratch division (from blue tees) and senior scratch and handicap division from white tees. All divisions will be 54 holes with a 36 hole cut for the top 50%.
G) Our golf software system will change next year and will have an app for live scoring, probably on-line registration AND payment, a new website and hopefully other nice tweaks-our website may be dormant for a bit during this transition.
Practice-up and have a good year Jim, Seth and all the TMGA Officers
