Apologies for the nearly one-month delay (the Goodboys Nation website got moved around at DreamHost and it raised heck with my FTP software trying to figure out how to upload the new picture there) but you’ll notice a new picture on the upper right corner of the page. Hail the new Goodboys Exec-Comm for 2019 – “The Funny Guy” Andrusaitis and “Skipper” Bornemann, who staged a stirring come-from-behind victory on Goodboys Invitational Sunday to win by one itty-bitty stroke over the team of “Deuce” Doucette and “Doggy Duval” McLaughlin. The final standings were as follows:

“TFG” / “Skipper”: +6
“Deuce” / “Doggy Duval”: +5
“Possum” Shepter / “Horse” Race: +3
“The Great White Shank” Richard / “Cubby” Myerow: +3
“Skeeta” Clark / “Goose” Dwyer: +15
“Killer” Kowalski / “T Money” Proctor: +15

It was hard to fathom the reigning Exec-Comm team of Skeeta / Goose folding playing as well as they did – in fact, better than anyone in their right mind could have reasonably expected – on Sunday having the kind of virtually insurmountable shaky lead of (if I recall correctly) somewhere around 10-11 strokes after Saturday’s round, but that’s what can happen under the nerve-wracking, bone-crushing tension of a Goodboys Invitational Sunday. Fortunately, once again there was a peaceful transition of power…

…upon which the victors were not ashamed to share their obvious love and respect for both each other and the multitudes that celebrated their momentous victory.

For “TFG” it was his sixth Goodboys Invitational victory (tying “Doggy Duval” for the most victories all-time), and Skipper could crow about achieving his second Goodboys championship. The winners get to have their names etched on the Goodboys trophy and take home those snazzy jackets worn by so many legendary Goodboys victors of the past. What they won’t have to worry about is solely responsible for the planning of the 30th anniversary event scheduled for the third weekend of July next year, as I’m virtually certain some form of a blue-ribbon subcommittee will be charged with the planning and coordination of this much-anticipated and momentous event.

Congratulations to the new Exec-Comm – may your reign be one of peace and prosperity!

  1. Need to check your figures.
    -15 TFG / Skipper (won in card off)
    -15 Skeeter / Goose
    – 3 TGWS / Cubby
    + 3 Horse / Possum
    + 5 Deuce / Doggy Duval
    + 6 Killa / 2X
    And Skeeter/ Goose were -4 on the last day (hardly a fold), only to be caught by TFG’s “Day of Jubilee” (-15!). Long Live the New Kings!

  2. Of course you’re right, Goose. Forgot all about the tiebreaker.

    [Ed. note: To those who are curious and/or unfamiliar with this kind of thing, when you have an event like Goodboys and there’s a tie you don’t force everyone to abandon their cocktails and go back out into the stifling heat to play another hole, you take the highest handicap hole on the scorecard and compare scores. If they tie again, you move to the second highest hole and then so on until the tie is broken.]

    Me? I completely forgot about that. Not only was it nearly a month ago and so much has happened since, I don’t think I was paying attention, anyways.

    But it’s all good, and thank you for correcting the record. Hang loose!

  3. Please make the needed corrections to your article.
    The only thing I know about folding is related to doing the laundry. We played hard before, during and after the event.

  4. Dude, I stand corrected, and so is the record in that post. I hope the changes are acceptable. Now get back to that laundry!
