Readers will notice that their reporter sits 23rd as a part-time competitor after going head-to-head in a foursome the previous Sunday with Lisa, Andy “Malone” Rajhathy and Phillip “Hitch” Hitchen at virtual Torrey Pines.
Everyone on the Slammer Tour receives a nickname and since I am the Ottawa Golf Examiner my tag is The Examiner.
The second foursome featured Michael “PizzaMan” Muise, Terry “T-Bone” Benson, Beauvais and Steve “Swanny” Swanson.
The Slammer Tour’s format is match-play and every player competes in the skins and doggies (closest-to-the-pin) contests.
Fortunately for me everyone took their time finding their swings, so I lucked in with two skins on the first two holes. The first was especially flukey because I chipped in after butchering two shots around the green.
My record ended up 0-1-2. I was able to come in all-square with Iron Maiden and Hitch, while Malone bested me 4 and 2.
The Slammer Tour is organized and operated by Executive Golf and welcomes new players all the time. They’ll discover that along with the golf there are always several other clever contests happening to keep things interesting throughout the round.
The match-play format, rather than stroke play, allows higher-handicap players to challenge lower-handicap players in a fun and competitive atmosphere.
When players visit www.executivegolf.ca and www.slammertour.com, they’ll be able to not only look over comprehensive information on all aspects of the virtual golf club, but they’ll also notice the detailed and personalized player profiles, statistics and scheduling pages.
