Lindenwood (Gold/Blue) Results--April 2, 2017

 
A Reminder for New Players: If you have not gotten your PGT shirt you can pick it up at any of the tournaments as we have a wide selection of colors and sizes available.
 
A few Reminders for All Players: All shirts are for sale for only $30 (PGT, Pirates, and Penguins).
     PGT will post your tournament score to GHIN after we verify it and ESC it.  We only post to GHIN at this time so players using GolfNet are required to post their PGT round score as a tournament score and we will check to make sure they ar posted.  In the near future we will be able to post to GolfNet and we will let you know when.  And now that we are "in-season", you must post all your away scores when playing with someone else.  Revisions are on the 1st and 15th each month.  As the season progresses, we will always use the lowest of your GHIN index, Tournament Average (one year average), or PGT Index (short term calculation), for flight placement.  This insures there is no perception of "sandbagging".  Please remember to review the daily and local rules for each specific tournament as this is your responsibility.  They are posted at the registration table and with the starter.  We try to verbalize everything as well, but sometimes things get a bit hectic on tournament day.
 
Ahh, golf in April in Western PA.  The first tournament of the year started out cold but turned out to be sunny and nice, but a slight frost delay caused things to not be as smooth as normal.  Cart path only with lift-clean-place caused backups and a slower day.  The course thought they would get to roll and cut down the greens, and use the normal green on #5 blue, but because of the frost and all the rain the previous few days, that didn't happen.  Look for very good conditions at Cranberry Highlands next Sunday as they were able to get their maintenance done early last month.  Conditions will improve as will the courses, and the prize purses will get larger with each tournament this spring.  And keep in mind that all members who play in at least 8 official tournaments this year are eligible for the extra large prize purse for the end of year two day Tour Championship.  Typically about $3000 is added on top of the regular payouts for this final tournament.  
We were relaxed a bit with our pace of play policy because of the course conditions, but this will be tightened up and enforced as the season goes on.  Expect slow play penalties to be issued and all players are required to know and abide by this policy.  Ready golf and maintaining your position directly behing the group in front of you is the most important thing, and if or when you fall behind it is your requirement to do anything and everything to catch up.
Our first half of the groups played in 4 1/2 hours but the final group came in at 5 hrs 10 min as a gap occurred half way through.  There were a few nice scores yesterday, but most of us still have alot of rust.  It's a long season and we have some great venues on the schedule.  Lindenwood was the first official and PCS tournament this year.  You can join the optional PCS year long competition at any time for your share of a nice cash prize.
 
Congratulations to all the winners at Lindenwood.
