Hi to all the OCGL members thanks for using the new website which we have just started and is on going many thanks


Here is the October 2019 Rub of the green

From the First Tee

Well the Ryder Cup is in the middle session “Best Ball Matches” and the competition is fierce. The turnout for qualifying this year was excellent and the teams have never been closer. It is a lot of fun interviewing the players as they come out of the game room, the pulse still jumping a little.

In case you didn’t know it, the family of DivatDown was very touched by all of the reports you sent to him as he was placed in the number one position following his passing. They read them as we were on Teamspeak and there was a silence that spoke volumes, then they voiced their appreciation. They also thanked all members for the flowers that were sent to his service and for the nice donation of money that was sent to Lynn.

Your starter hasn’t seen DoctorSteve in a while at the first tee and found out that he had a leg amputated. On a follow up call he said there was more surgery to go, so please keep him in your prayers. He said he was anxious to get back to the game. FNABubba advised us that he was planning on getting out of the hospital on the 16th of this month, excited to go home. He was a good tipper so we hope to see him on here soon.

Instruction

If you meet someone in the parking lot, or the taproom, and think they would be a good fit for our league, please get their player name and, better yet, also get their email address. Once one of the staff has this information they will be friended, or otherwise contacted, and the Vetting process can begin.

Lord Bob is in the process of training to become a Tournament Director.

Please support your Tournament Directors as often as possible. They spend a lot of time setting up the tourneys and conducting the events, so if you are leaning one way or the other, side with the guys who put it together.
