I played three times last week, but it was with my spare set back home (did not bother bringing the tags with me).  I was only hitting about 8 greens a round anyway... looking forward to seeing how the leaderboards shake out

Week Four Results

The action dies down a bit as we near the end of our quest and with only one day left, it looks like we may have a new king.

The overall leader board is dominated by outsiders with no rightful claim to the throne, but as the smoke starts to clear, we see the gap has narrowed between the two TST titans fighting it out for the crown. @coachjimsc posts another solid round but fails to raise his total, leaving the door open for a Friday afternoon on the golf course to be his undoing. I wonder if @iacas has a tee time scheduled?

In the individual round challenge, TST has fared much better and has the enemy flanked on all sides, with @iacas holding the top of the mountain. @coachjimsc and @JxQx brought the heavy artillery and have fought bravely, but pending a gallant and miraculous charge in the final hours of battle, this one looks to be signed and sealed.

@iacas isn't eligible to take home the prize in either challenge, so it looks like @coachjimsc may have a few ball markers to spare soon...but there's still time...

p.s. "cough, cough." I think I feel a cold coming on, may need to take a sick day. ;-)

Although the GameGolf website still shows "Results Pending", I think it's safe to call it...

All hail King Jim and King Erik! Long Live the Kings! :beer:

Congratulations to @coachjimsc for being the top TST member in each challenge and taking home four of these awesome ball markers! (remember to PM @iacas your address :-D)

King Jim launched his assault early, facing initial resistance, but repeated charges from his rivals were no match for his steady and accurate salvos. After grabbing the top spot in week two, he never looked back.

In the individual challenge, King Jim declared his intent to unify the realm but was hit by a piercing blow from King Erik in week three that severed the kingdoms and couldn't be overcome.

For the excellence of their feats on the field of honor, King Jim and King Erik, in their merciful wisdom, have granted pardon and elevated to the rank of Knight, all warriors who managed to breach the gates of the city and claim a spot among the Top 5 during the challenge.

Three cheers for the Knights of the Top 5 Tables! :beer:

@b101, @JxQx, @InTheRough@roamin, @saevel25,  @Valleygolfer

"Hip, Hip!... Hip, Hip!... Hip, Hip!..."

Finally, a big thanks to everyone else who participated in the challenge and put up with my silly posts... :-P

@billchao, @ChillyDipper, @cipher, @Denny Bang Bang, @georgep, @Hardspoon, @Slowcelica

Full TST member results in the spoiler...

Thanks for putting this together and doing the write-ups, @roamin! Though I never had a chance, it is fun to participate in these challenges. I did have this challenge in mind during my rounds but wasn't able to think my way into more GIR. Mental game needs more work ;-)

You did. I did too.-- He just missed our names. You came in 11th on the single round, and I came in 20th (I was expecting to be last, so I'm not disappointed). ;-)

Thank you @roamin for putting this together. It was loads of fun. Only got into my head on the last round. ;-)

Being selected King and not really needing 4 new ball markers, I would like to bequeath my 2 ball markers from the Single round GIR to the next best finisher from TST. 

Looking forward to the next challenge.

Happy 4th to everyone.

A most gracious and benevolent king. You're a class act, sir! :-)

( @JxQx, looks like you'll need to PM your address to @iacas;-) )
