New 2019 Masterpoint Race Winner

The earth has shifted on its axis people.  We have a new Masterpoint Race Leader for 2019!  Marc Fournier has dominated the leader board for the most masterpoints won in the club each year for the past decade!  Usually winning by 25 or more points!  An amazing achievement that brings back memories of Jack Nicholas dominating the golf scene when I was a teenager.  Well, in 2019 Marc has been uncrowned by Jan Gilewicz.  "Jan has played very well this year" according to Marc.  Indeed he has and it is worth celebrating!  Well done Jan.  May the rivalry continue in 2020!

New Ruby Life Masters

Move over all you Silver Life Masters and make room for two new Ruby Life Masters, Jan Gilewicz and Sandor Olcsvary.  Both just recently crossed the 1500 master point milestone. Congratulations and well done! 

The colored Life Master designations are 750 for Bronze, 1000 for Silver, 1500 for Ruby,  2500 for Gold, 3500 for Sapphire, 5000 for Diamond, 7500 for Emerald and 10,000 for Platinum.
