     Many more stats than you want are below and to the right. I now have one putter         10 Jim Slagle       20 55.05   55.20   55.05 1   56.05                    
scheduled weekly, two every other Friday or Sunday and ten with a monthly day and         11 Nolie Carman       4   55.50   55.50   55.50 0   55.50                    
time.  Let me know if you would like to be added to a monthly or more often putting           12 Al Spigeralli       5   56.00   56.00   56.00 0   56.00                    
schedule.                                               13 Mike Jimerson       3   56.25   56.25   56.25 0   56.25                    
       Any suggestions for improving the tournament, the course or the Buckeye decorations     14 Wayne Dunderdale       24   58.42   57.20   57.20 0   57.20                    
are welcomed.  I have been tweaking the handicapping and adding Buckeye decorations       14 Dan Garwick       7   57.71   57.20   57.20 0   57.20                    
each month, but any suggetions are encouraged.  Early in January I completely changed the    16 Shawn Boyd       4   57.25   57.25   57.25 0   57.25                    
Gray course.  Previously the 27 hole tournament course had 3 holes that were identical.       17 Mark Lowe       35   58.03   59.40   58.03 0   58.03                    
Now we have 27 distinct holes.                                         18 Don McLeod       10   58.10   58.40   58.10 0   58.10                    
     Three changes will be made effective June 1, 2014 as follows:                     19 Rick Salas       9   59.22   59.60   59.22 0   59.22                    
1- The first two 27 hole rounds played each day will count as tournament play.             20 David Carey       9   60.67   61.80   60.67 0   60.67                    
     It has been only the first round.                                       21 Mark Billes       4   62.00   62.00   62.00 0   62.00                    
2- The 6th hole on the blue course will be putted from just left of Blue 7 instead of Blue 5.       22 Kimberly Boyd       4   71.00   71.00   71.00 0   71.00                    
3- We will go back to having just one tournament.                                                                    
                                                     For May reverse handicaps will be as noted in next to last column above.  I      
TIE BREAKER - Last hole won by tied putters by starting with last hole played               determined what each putter above averaged in last five tournaments and in all      
on the Blue Course working backwards until one of putters wins hole.                     tournaments entered.  I used the lower of those two averages as noted above.  I      
                                                used a handicap that would get me closest to 56 strokes for 27 holes.
