Greater Bucky Open - September 26, 1999
|Three times a charm was this years GBO motto as Mother Nature served us up another beautiful Wisconsin fall day. For the third year in a row, I am pleased to announce that we set a new attendance record of 28 "golfers". Besides some goodies that were handed out to everyone including some classic Wisconsin hats, this year we went all out and had trophies for the winners of each contest.|

|Jeff "Hungry Like the" Wulf, Little Dean Nolden, and Big Bob Thorpe captured this years low gross title with a 6 under par 66 which included 2 eagles. By the way, two-time defending champion Tim Corcoran was unable to defend his title this year due to a broken wrist...the big wuss.|
|"E" Hewitt sank the longest putt on #3, Matt "Lenny" Leonard smacked the longest drive on #7. Mike Vilstrup-ped his way to the Closest to the Pin honors on #12. Wulf cut the corner and won the Longest Drive on #14. Dennis "Lenny Sr" Leonard sank the longest 4 foot putt on #18.|
Filler up Mike and check the oil.
|In the 2nd biggest upset of the day, the worst shot did not go to Nate Wilke but went to Lenny Jr as he somehow managed to hit a tee shot backwards. And yes, yours truly took home most beers consumed honors taking the title away from the perennial H-man! Unfortunately the NYC team was shut out from the statues although they would have won an award for the most detailed scorecard...check it out to the left. Chris "Miss the Cut" Kelly could not last throughout the weekend after a strong performance on Friday night and only contributed 2 shots for his team all day long.|
|After golf, most of us headed to the Hilltop for some more refreshments while we watched the Packers easily beat the Vikings on a last second 4th down play. This year we made our first contribution to the UW Badger Fund for the Bucky Badgers.|
