The Hacker's Golf League was started in the early 80's as a NEC only league that played at Twin Springs in Bolton. Around the mid 90's the Tech bubble burst and several NEC employees ended up at 3Com, EMC and Digital. The league also moved from Twin Springs to Juniper in that same time frame. Today, the league members come mainly from companies located in the area along Routes 495 and 9, commonly known as the MetroWest.
The League plays every Tuesday night starting in late April through mid August at the Juniper Hill Golf Course in Northboro, Massachusetts. The League switches courses with other Tuesday night leagues allowing play on Riverside Front and Back and Lakeside Front and Back.

Stop me if you seen this before - Artie McDonald shots a new Low Round of the Year. Shot a 36 featuring birdies at the 6th and 9th. Talley Montecalvo's 44 , -7 net tied for the Low Net of the Year. Tough couple of weeks for The Course - shoots even par yet loses 18-2 to Provencher & Driscoll last week and this week Braga & Montecalvo trounced Mr. Par 19-1.
Scottie Scheffler had his highest final round 2 over 74 in 2 years but it was enough to beat Collin Morikawa by a stroke at the demanding Muirfield Village course. The win at the Memorial was already his fifth win of the year - brings back memories of Tiger's dominance. Scottie's $4 million prize pushed him past $15,000,000 for the year. Morikawa pocketed $2.2 million. Thanks LIV!
Sweden's Linnea Storm needed a birdie on the 18th on Saturday to make the cut at theShopRite LPGA Classic at the Seaview Resort in New Jersey, fully 7 behind leader Jenny Shin. On Sunday she shot a tournament record 11 under 60 which featured 9 birdies and an eagle to win the event. It was the lowest final round score in LPGA history. Only Annika Sorenstam's 59 in the 2nd round at a 2001 tournament is lower.
Another Swede Linn Grant birdied the final hole to win the Scandinavian Mixed event where both the men and women play against each other. Grant shot a final round 7 under 65 to overcome an 11 shot deficit. Sebastian Solderberg missed a 15" putt to force a playoff.
Ernie Els won for the second straight week on the Champions tour in Madison, Wisconsin when tournament host Steve Stricker lipped out a 2' putt on the 1st playoff hole.

Jake's ball lands in deep rough just off the putting green near a sprinkler head which interfers with his stance. When he takes relief he drops in the fairway in front of the green. His opponent says he must drop in the rough. Is he correct?
