2017 Lebber Cup – Eagles Mere Country Club

Team Lebber 9 - Team Flopacinski 7

Known for: Threatened name change of the Lebber Cup.

Summary: The Flops object to Team Lebber inserting its worst player into the lineup.  The rationale?  Only the Flops know.  As a bargaining chip, the Flops only agree to the move on the condition that the Lebber Cup be changed to the Flop Cup if the Flops win.  The trophy vehemently objects but the Lebbers reluctantly agree.   

Turning Point: Hinckle drains a 5 footer to win his singles match against Phipps, evening the match heading into alternate shot.  Phipps looks on in disbelief as he previously believed making a 5 footer under pressure defied the laws of nature and mankind.  Notably, Phipps remained in contention until the 18th hole by avoiding hitting his driver off the tee.  On the 18th, in spite of best efforts by Captain Willy Lop to talk Phipps out of the driver, Phipps replies by saying “woof woof” (interpreted in Flopanese as “let the big dog eat”).  Phipps proceeds to set a Lebber Cup record by hitting 12 trees on one tee shot, setting up Hinckle for the victory.      

Notable: Heavy downpour made for almost unplayable conditions for three holes but the Lebbers and Flops fought through it.

2016 Lebber Cup – Eagles Mere Country Club

Team Lebber 8.5   - Team Flopacinski 7.5

Known for: Exhausted Willy Lop can’t make it through the cup.

Summary: Team Flop’s Ernie Graham has a 25’ putt to win the cup on the last hole of alternate shot play.  He announces to no one in particular that God put an oil spot on the green to show him the break.  When interviewed after the cup, God replied, “it was bird shit.”

Turning Point: The first turning point occurs when Captain Willy Lop changes the format in mid-match and insists on 18 holes of alternate shot.  The change costs his team the cup.  Incidentally, many mistake Willy Lop for the captain of the Hindenberg and the Titanic, he wasn’t, but the confusion makes sense. 

Notable: Wiley mistakenly believes Team Flop has won the cup after he and Libby miraculously win their alternate shot match and begins the “ole” chant.  Team Lebber proceeds to win 2 more matches and halves the last, winning the cup outright.

2005 Lebber Cup - Eagle Rock Golf Resort
August 5, 2005
Known as: Do You Believe in Camelcles? YES!
Summary: Said Al Michaels, whose historic call on seventeen will go down as one of the great calls in broadcasting history, "the first word that came to mind was 'camel' as in Team Camel.  The second word was 'miracle.' Then those words became a question, 'Do you believe in camelcles? YES!."  Lennon's shocking half with Gerard Rosato leads Team Lebber to victory.  In a milder upset, Noel defeats Jimmy Shan after Lennon gets in Jimmy's head, using 66 of his 101 gorilla jokes during the round.  Mr. Lebo's dramatic chip-in on 18 leads to another half after he was down three holes. 

Turning Point: Mr. Lebo's chip-in on 18 and Phipps and Danny Kim being Phipps and Danny Kim on the back nine.   
Notable: Huff won the first nine holes in his match against Lebo, never accomplished in Lebber Cup play.  In Lebo's defense, new irons pretty much killed his golf weekend.  Team Lebber won in spite of Lebber Cup Ace Channy's absence.  Huff downed a bacon cheeseburger with 16 ounces of mayonnaise on it after the round.  Mr. Lebo nearly has a heart attack watching him eat the thing.  Tacky Team Flop tries to put some salve on its wounds by noting they have won the last two Stokers...reminded me of a little prep school kid losing a game of tag and telling the winner his daddy makes more money.  First Lebber Cup where the Stoker Champs went head to head (pun intended).  Pop-Pop returns to Team Lebber after four year layoff.  Danny Kim is 0-8 in the Lebber Cup. 
5 - 3 Team Lebber
Gerard Rosato (Team Flop) halved Jason Lennon (Team Lebber)
Matthew Noel (Team Lebber) defeated Jim Shanahan (Team Flop) 2 & 1 
Kevin Shanahan (Team Lebber) defeated John Phipps (Team Flop) 6 & 5
Will Lopacinski (Team Flop) halved Mitch Leibovitz (Team Lebber)
Jerry Huffman (Team Flop) defeated Dan Leibovitz (Team Lebber) 9 & 7
David Jannetta (Team Lebber) defeated Dan Kim (Team Flop) 6 & 5
Michael Wiley (Team Flop) defeated Dan Hinckle (Team Lebber) 3 & 2
Bob Ferraro (Team Lebber) defeated Steve Partridge (Team Flop) 4 & 3 
 
2004 Lebber Cup - Great Bear Country Club
Known as: Floppy Seconds

Summary: In a stunning upset, Team Flop sweats out a win
at gnat infested Great Bear Country Club. The thrill of victory is only tainted
by Huff drinking a Cosmo after the round.

Turning Point: Huff dominates Noel but the telltale sign  was when
he drills a shot through a sequoia tree on 15 and lands it on the green. 
Huff proceeds to berate the tree for being in the line of fire.  After a
tough draw with Willy Lop,  adistraught Mr. Lebo laments to Lebo
on the ride up to Eagles Mere, "I lost my son's cup."  It sounds
disgusting. 
Notable: Absent-minded Team Lebber Captain Rosato  thinks it's
a "great idea" to split up juggernaut Team Camel (good call).  Channy
sets the tone for the 2005 for coming back from 4 down to hand Danny
Kim his eighth Lebber Cup loss.

 

4 1/2 - 3 1/2  Team Flopacinski

 

Kevin Shanahan (Team Flop) defeated Bob Ferraro (Team Lebber) 8 & 7

2003 Lebber Cup - Eagle Rock Golf Resort

Known as: Team Camel Turmoil

Summary: In the closest match yet, other than Team Flop's win at Bucknell, the Flops play tough but lose by one match.

Turning Point: With the match tied at two apiece, Team Lebber's destiny lies in the hands of the buzzsaw that is Team Camel (Lennon and Noel). Noel dominates and leaves Danny Kim in the dust at 6 and 5, Jimmy Shan misses three putts within 5 feet with his 8 year old Bullseye putter. "Putting your hand in a blender, running head first into a wall, playing Team Camel in match play, there are just somethings you don't do in life" said Lennon.

Notable: Hinckle avenges his 2002 loss to Huff. Like a bird freed from a cage by not having to play his nemesis, Noel, Phipps pulls out a Lebber Cup win.

4 1/2- 3 1/2 Team Lebber
Gerard Rosato (Team Flop) defeated Pat Shanahan (Team Lebber) 5 and 4
Michael Wiley (Team Flop) defeated Dave Jannetta (Team Lebber) 2 and 1

Dan Hinckle (Team Lebber) defeated Jerry Huffman (Team Flop) 2 and 1
John Phipps (Team Flop) defeated Dan Lebo 2 Up

2002 Lebber Cup - Mill Race Golf Club

Known as: Mill Race Massacre

Summary: Team Flop steps up and pulls off two wins but suffers another embarassing defeat.

Turning Point: Jimmy Shan tries to rally his team with a gorilla dance on the eighth hole accompanied by eating pancake batter out of his ear. The ploy backfires and Lennon has new Jimmy Shan material for the remainder of the day.

Notable: In a budding rivalry, Huff avenges his 2001 loss to Hinckle. Phipps loses for the third consecutive year at the hands of his nemesis, Noooeeeelllll!

5-2 Team Lebber
Pat Shanahan (Team Lebber) defeated Michael Wiley (Team Flop) 6 and 4
David Jannetta (Team Lebber) defeated Dan Kim (Team Flop) 4 and 3
Will Lopacinski (Team Flop) defeated Dan Lebo (Team Lebber) 2 and 1

Matthew Noel (Team Lebber) defeated John Phipps (Team Flop) 1 up


2001 Lebber Cup - Mount Airy Lodge

Known as: Return to Normalcy

Summary: In what was almost a complete sweep, Team Flop expresses its yearning for a return to the Mango shirts by it's play. The 1918 White Sox were less conspicuous.

Turning Points: Channy teeing it up on the first hole. Phillips suffered the worst defeat in Lebber Cup history at the hands of the Baby's arm, losing 8 and 7.

Notable: At the turn, David Rosato throws out the most quoted order in Lebber Cup history, "yeah 2 Coors Lights how ya doin'?"


7-1 Team Lebber
Pat Shanahan (Team Lebber) defeated Paul Chambers (Team Flop) 1 up
Bobby Ferraro (Team Lebber) defeated Michael Philips (Team Flop) 8 and 7

Dan Lebo (Team Lebber) defeated Dan Kim (Team Flop) 1 up
Jim Shanahan (Team Flop) defeated Jason Lennon (Team Lebber) 4 and 3

2000 Lebber Cup - Bucknell Golf Club

Known as: "Do You Believe in Miracles?"

Summary: A stunning upset, Jimmy Shan uses cheezy antics to defeat Lebo and Willy Lop, getting 25 strokes somehow pulls off an upset over Lennon.

Turning Point: Is it really a defeat when your team is getting a combined 201 strokes?

Notable: Insult to injury, Team Lebber has to pile in 6 into Hinckle's car after the match. The stench of four hungover men in the backseat must have been unbearable.

4-3 Team Flopacinski
Michael Wiley (Team Flop) defeated David Rosato (Team Lebber) 2 and 1
David Jannetta (Team Flop) defeated Dan Hinckle (Team Lebber) 5 and 4

Pat Shanahan (Team Lebber) defeated Dan Kim (Team Flop) 3 and 2



1999 Lebber Cup - Center Valley Golf Club

Known as: "Center Valley Slashing"

Summary: Again, a fast start by Team Flop, but like trying to fit three Barn ladies in the hot tub late night, it just doesn't fit.

Turning Points: Already up 2-0, Hinckle defeats a stunned Jim Jr. and tosses his ball across a busy highway. After Willy Lop's quick start, Matty Noel turns to an uncomfortable Channy and says "don't worry, it's mathematically impossible for him to play like this for a full 18 holes." Channy goes on to win 2 and 1.

Notable: Willy Lop and Phipps employ a tacky strategy by refusing to tee off first on all 18 holes.

5-2 Team Lebber
Matthew Noel (Team Lebber) defeated John Phipps (Team Flop) 2 and 1
Pat Shanahan (Team Lebber) defeated Will Lopacinski (Team Flop) 2 and 1

1998 Lebber Cup - Eagles Mere Country Club

Known as: The Inaugural Lebber Cup

Summary: Lebber's braichild is a hit. Team Flop jumps out to an enormous lead, but the uncomfortable feeling of being ahead doesn't quite suit these lovable losers.

Turning Point: David Rosato, down three with four holes to go, rallies to defeat Will Lopacinski.

Notable: Huff sweats through his shirt completely leaving no dry spot whatsoever. Also, many say that is Partridge's Normanesque fold which caused his absence from the next two Stoker's.
