I was just reading an article about how golf is really popular in South Korea, but the courses are too far from the cities and too expensive. Instead, they play screen golf. Six times more Koreans play screen golf than regular golf and they pay $ 20.00 on the average for 18 holes. There are over 5,000 locations and they even broadcast screen-golf tournaments on TV. They are able to choose from hundreds of actual golf courses such as Pebble Beach. Sensors in the ceiling track distance, direction, and angle as well as backspin speed. The mat that they stand on can incline to simulate hitting the ball on a hill. There’s even a section on the mat that simulates being in a bunker and a section that simulates the rough. Wind is also factored in as the ball flies and they can see the wind speed on the screen before they hit the ball. What I found funny was that when a ball lands in a lake, the screen displays an underwater view of the ball resting on the bottom. Putting is the most difficult part because it’s hard to determine the exact slope or break of a green based on the symbols on the screen. This all sounds interesting, but I think I’ll stick to Saticoy golf.
The top team of today’s scramble was the team of Youker, Kehoe, Karas and Rudy. They had a net score of 54. Way to go guys.

Here are a couple of photos from this week’s tournament. The first photo is of David Soriano’s ball after he tried to hit the green from the left side of hole #7. Somehow the ball became lodged in a tree. It could have been worse. A rabid squirrel could have said “finders keepers”. On the 2nd photo, Gary Hibner waits for a group of non-club golfers to finish putting on hole #13 while Jack Bonifield and David Soriano look on. We had non-club groups in front of us and behind us.
The top golfer of this week’s tournament was Rich Guzik with a gross score of 81 and a net score of 64. David Rios and John Gonzales don’t appear in the results because they were DQ’d for hitting the wrong balls and not rectifying the error before teeing off on the next hole. Jerry Agdeppa and Bob Sabedra also don’t appear in the results because they haven’t established a handicap. They were still eligible for C/P and L/P awards.

Dear fellow golfers,
Sorry for getting the results out so late. Jack tried to send them to me Thursday after the tournament, but for some reason they didn’t go through. He wasn’t aware of this until I notified him Saturday in the afternoon. Looks like the evil computer spirits are acting up again (in addition to my evil golf spirits).
The top golfers of this week’s tournament were Thomas Tone with the best gross score of 83. Ron Carpenter and Dom Dinielle tied for the best net score with a 63. Way to go guys.
