W szóstym  „Polish Ryder Cup” z tzw. Resztą Świata (Wschodnie Wybrzeże, Floryda, Kalifornia, Kanada) chicagowianie wygrali w N. Jorku 13-11, tym samym podwyższyli stan serii na 4-2 dla Chicago. Spotkanie było niezwykle zacięte, rozegrano je w bardzo dobrych warunkach pogodowych, na trudnym torze. Już po pierwszym dniu prowadziliśmy 8.5-5.5 pkt i w praktyce sprawa końcowego zwycięstwa była już przesądzona. W sobotę, w drugim dniu zmagań,  zdobyto dalszych 5.5 pkt. Wystarczyło to do wprawdzie nieznacznej, ale w pełni zasłużonej wygranej Chicago. Oto zdobywcy punktów dla Chicago:
Piątek, zwycięskie pary:
Homenda/Budz; Matyjek Mucha; Deka/Radziejewski; Kozera/Sokołowski Startek/Szostak
W sobotnim turnieju indywidualnym punkty wywalczyli:
Kozera, Deka, Startek, Szostak i pól punktu Mucha za remisowy pojedynek.
Końcowy rezultat: 13-11 dla Chicago; stan serii: 4-2 dla Chicago

2006 Ryder Cup



Polonia Golf Club would like to propose a new two day golf tournament for year 2006 – THE POLISH RYDER CUP. In USA and Canada we have over 150 players, more than half of which reside in Chicago.

We propose a challenge between the CHICAGO Team ( Podhale Golf Club, Polish-American Golf Club and Polonia Golf Club) and the POLONIA Team ( N.Y, Canada ,Detroit and Florida). Twelve of the best players from each Team would play against one another in a two days tournament.

The first day of competition would include four-balls andfoursomes matches. The second day of competition would include singles matches. Team members are chosen by team Capitan.


Four-balls Friday September 1st 2006 AM

Four-balls (four groups of two-man teams)

“Four-ball” play is a match in which each member of the two-man teams play their own ball. Four balls are in play per hole with each of the four players recording a score on the hole. The team whose player posts the best score on that hole wins the hole. Should players from each team tie for the best score, the hole is halved.

Foursomes Friday September 1st 2006 PM

Foursomes (four groups of two-man teams)

“Foursome” play is a match where two golfers compete on a team against two other golfers and each side plays one ball. The golfers play alternate shots (player A hits tee shot, player B hits second shot, etc.) until the hole is played out. Team members alternate playing the tee shots, with one golfer hitting the tee shot on odd-numbered holes, and the other hitting the tee shot from the even-numbered holes. The team with the better score wins the hole. Should the two teams tie for best score, the hole is halved.

Chicago Team 2 – Polonia Team 4

Match Play Guidelines & Terminology

  • Match play is a game that is decided hole by hole instead of cumulatively over 18 holes.
  • A hole is won by the team, which holes its ball in the fewer strokes.
  • Score is kept by the number of holes up (won) and the number of holes to play.
  • When a team is up (winning) by more holes than there are holes remaining, then the match is closed out and a point is awarded.
  • One point is awarded for each match won.
  • If the match is tied or “halved” through 18 holes of play, each team receives one half of a point.
  • A total of 24 points are awarded in Ryder Cup competition. If a match is currently tied while in competition, then it is considered “all-square”.
  • A match is considered “dormie” when one side is up by the exact number of holes that remain.
  • A player/twosome is said to be 2-up thru 10 after winning two more holes than their opponent(s) through 10 holes.
  • A player/twosome is said to win the match 2-up after winning two more holes than their opponent thru 18 holes.
  • A player/twosome is said to win 3 and 2 after winning three holes more than their opponent(s) with only two holes left to play, assuring victory.

Polish ryder cup jest to turniej ktorego pamyslodawcami byli Jozef Mucha i Igor Matyjek z Poloni Golf Club. W turnieju tym beda brali udzial zawodnicy ktorzy swoim zaangazowaniem w polonijnym srodowisku golfowym zasluzyli sobie na udzial w tym turnieju.Do tego celu sporzadzona jest tabela z odpowiednia punktacja za poszczegolne turnieje i chalange.W tym roku nie jest jeszcze ustalony ranking wg. tych kryteriow, ale do nastepnego turnieju za rok, po calkowitym dopracowaniu zasad punktacji, bedzie scisle przestrzegane. W tym roku Polonia Golf Club wspolnie z P.A.G.C. oraz Podhale Golf Club wystawiaja sklad do turnieju.Zostalo ustalone ze do turnieju moga wprowadzic po jednym zawodniku; sponsor turnieju i kapitan druzyny z Chicago. Turnieje R.Cup jesli sie przyjma w kalendarzu Polonijnych turniejow i pozwola na to mozliwosci organizatorow,powinny byc organizowane co drugi rok w Chicago , skad jest jedna druzyna oraz w Nowym Jorku, Pensylwanii ,Florydzie czy Kanadzie skad sa zawodnicy z drugiej druzyny.Uczestnictwo w Ryder Cup jest nagroda dla zawodnikow,wiec idea bylo pozyskanie sponsora ktory by pokryl koszty gry przez dwa dni turnieju,koszulek dla calej druzyny,za puchar oraz przyjecie po turnieju.Jedynym kosztem zawodnikow w biezacym roku jest zakwaterowanie,oczywiscie dotyczy to drugiej druzyny z poza Chicago.Takie warunki zostaly dopracowane na ten rok przez duze zaangazowanie Igora Matyjek , Marka Bidus, oraz sponsora Sphinx Insurence(Krzysztof i Marek Placek). Na nastepne turnieje R.Cup w Chicago mile sa widziane pomysly z innych organizacji golfa z Chicago. Jozef Mucha.
