Congratulations to Brett Polen, the top money winner in the weekend and match play tournaments in 2018 at $716. The winner was decided at the final tournament of the year, the Turkey Shoot. Brett had a lead that Roger Brown and / or Mike Bade might have been able to overcome, but Brett came through with a second place finish worth $72, and that settled the matter. To see the Turkey Shoot results, go to www.golfgenius.com, use jackson_men for the GGID, and scroll to the bottom of the page to find the Turkey Shoot.
The final results for the year are here: 2018 MONEY LIST – 11 17 FINAL RESULTS. Thanks to the new full schedule of weekday tournaments, we set new Men’s Club records for the 21st Century in every category except “Club Percentage.” Thanks to all who participated in the tournaments, making this a great year of golf at Jackson Park.
By the way, in the money list, “purse” stands for book money won, the first figure, which has a dollar sign. That is the money you can use to buy merchandise at the pro shop. “Points” stand for honey pot winnings, paid in cash at the tournament or left at the pro shop for you to pick up, and no dollar sign is used for that on the list.
Below are the statistics for the weekend and match play tournaments, then another set for all of this year’s tournaments combined.
In addition, estimated total tournament and match play golf fees (not including “Player Entries” portion designated for payouts) is $35,600.
