Jeff and Carlos Got it done again in 2017. Their third title, they are a force to be reckoned with yearly. When they are not out shopping for white pants together or at home watching Dancing with the Stars, Jeff and Carlos can usually be found beating nearly every opponent that comes their way. They are the only team to ever finish a season undefeated in doubles at 13-0 in 2009 and extended their unbeaten streak to 23 straight before finally losing. It's hard to believe that their partnership came together at the last minute. Like Bert and Ernie, they seem like they've been friends for life. Majors: Jeff(7) Carlos(8)
One of the two longest tenured teams, Tom and Mike are also two of the most popular members and are certainly the fastest team out there. Both are streaky who have each rattled off back-to-back tournament wins in their careers. Tom will sometimes go sans woods and win tournaments and other times, when he's behind a slow group, he will hit driver on every shot including from in the bunkers and on the greens. Mike is the self proclaimed Champion of the Practice Range. Both of them have seen and heard all the things that make the league great and will be happy to share them.
Majors: Tom (1) Mike (2)
Both members joined us as independent members in 2017 from Chris Fasouletos, with an open team spot available they want it. Both golfers played over 4 events with us last season and saw what it was to compete in Doubles when they played together. Both have yet to win their first event title but it is right there for them to get it.
Mike was an independent in 2016, and John was a full team, they decided to team up for 2017. Both players had some success in 2016, and were both named to the Ryder Cup team that came up 1 stroke short of claiming the victory.
Majors: Mike 1, John 1
Taka might describe this team as Happy-Go-Rucky. The fact is that they are very competitve and easy going but that has never contributed to any team or individual success. They'll play in any weather,even after a long drive up from Myrtle Beach, and make nearly every event. Taka's brush with fame came when he made the final group for day two of the 2002 Club Championship only to shoot 77 on the front nine. He is often mistaken for a 27 year old by strangers. Andy, when he's not posing for print ads as the second man on the evolutionary chart, can be heard spouting off heinously corny one liners. Majors: None
A pair of golfers from the CJGC, Brian is related to Powell in some way. I do know that they are NOT from PLAINFIELD. John won 2 events in his rookie year and Brain finished in a tie for event wins but lost on tiebreakers. They finished their inaugural season in 3rd place not bad for a couple of rookies.
Majors - John 3, Brian 1
Nunzio and new member Bil Murray, came to join Nunzio the 2019 season, Bikk a fellow golfer from Nunzios town of Livingston, so now we shouldn't have a problem with Nunzio heading to the wrong course for his tee time. Good luck guys.
Majors- Nunzio (3), Bill-0
Scott and Hank decided to pair up after the banquet since their old partners are changing their status, Scott's partner from last year is moving, and Hank's is going to be playing less events. Both these guys know what it takes to get some wins.
Majors: Scott 2, Hank(0)
Chris attempted to play as a guest with us in 2014(via web), he jumped at the chance to join the club he was the first to respond to the email I sent out to golfers that showed interest in becoming members last season. He is brought his friend Tom to join him for their rookie year and have been with us since 2014. Majors: None
After his winning the singles title in 2016 Brady got Charlie Padilla (the Colombian) to return and they will be partners as the original plan when Brady entered the club in 2015. They both work together and will be a tough out. So be on alert. Charlie has 1 tourney win but no majors
Majors: Brady-1, Charlie-none
Joe found us on thru the website and brought in his father-in-law to become a team for the 2018 season, both golfers have been assigned a new handicap thru the ghin system. They played approximately 25 rounds of golf this past season at different courses so they will not feel a shock like the members that were used to playing the same course week after week. Good luck this season
Majors - None
Ed's and Gary's partners from 2016 are both unable to play in 2017 (Baron, Gropler) so they will team up in 2017. Both of which are looking forward to being a threat to the title holders in both Singles and Doubles, good luck gentlemen.
Majors: Ed (2), Gary-0
Dave and Jim were members with us back in 2015 but took a few years off due to schedules conflicting but email'd me asking for a full spot to come back in 2019, welcome back guys.
Frank is back to full member status after a seaon off as a sub (due to work schedule). Kyle came to us via the site looking for a friendly yet competitive golf club, both looking forward to 2019 and both have their handicaps in the same range so a good fit.
MAJORS - Kyle 0, Frank 1
Jon joined us via our website. He brought in his friend, Jae Kim and both played as independents last season returned as full members in 2020. They both were inquiring about a golf club that has some Friendly competition, they should fit in well with the Weekenders.
MAJORS - NONE
Dennis one of our GO to MAJORS players, He welcomed rookie, James Ha via recommendation from ex partner Frank Garcia, Dennis led the WEEKENDERS to its win in the RYDER cup back in 2018
MAJORS DENNIS 8/ JAMES NONE
Usually a full team this past year they decided to become independent members with fellow member Jim Gillick so they are under no pressure to make a lot the events and when they do mix it up the 3 of them can make one team if needed for competition.
One of the elder statesman in the club, Jim usually partners with Bill Buntzen but Bill doesn't play anymore, so when Jim plays it is as an independent and usually with Paul B. or Dave S. most of the time the 3 of them are together.
Tom joins us via Dave Severson He is an INDEPENDENT (SUB), he plays alot and when there is a full team missing Tom and Dave Severson compete as a Team for Doubles/Singles competition
Coty joined us from our website. Coty, a local golfer looking to take his next step playing golf, He has played a lot of golf (locally @ Meadows) and we get to expand his golf course expectations.
Mike came to us via the site, had a partner but only able to play a few events due to work schedule but enjoys playing as an independent so he is able to compete when is needed
MAJORS - NONE
Let's get one thing straight. There is no Weekenders Golf Club without Carmen DeLizio and let me be one of many who should give him his due. Here from the start in 1972, he kept the league together in good times and bad and acted as the league treasurer until this season, of what could be the best independent golf league in the country. When it comes to golf, Carmen remains one of the best and toughest competitors in the league even at his advanced age. On top of that, he remains one of the least controversial figures refraining from trash talk. With Carmen readying for retirement and finishing up his workload as a town electrical inspector a full season load would be too much so for this year he prefers to be listed as an Independents but I am sure you will still see him at 50% of our events. Majors: (4)
Dave 0wns the title of our UNLUCKIEST golfer. Sure he has won multiple events during his years, but he holds the record of most TIEBREAKERS LOST, if he is low man after the round , and it goes to our tiebreaker , he is a record 1-12 in tiebreakers or Dave may be the most winningest golfer in our Club. He will show at about every week so if you need a sub he is your man. MAJORS; NONE
Tom found us on our website, and wanted to join us at an event in 2017 as a guest but his schedule didn't allow it. He will be joining us in 2018 as an independent member. He has a GHIN number so he will have an effective handicap when we start. Tom wanted to be a full member but only thinks he will make about 5-7 events this year and didn't want to be a burden to a partner. Majors NONE
