Gary Klinger and Dale Taub won the team championship for the second straight year and fourth time since 2016.

It was a familiar story this summer in the weekly B’nai B’rith golf league.

Gary Klinger and Dale Taub won the team championship for the second straight year and fourth time since 2016.

Taub won his second individual championship. He previously won the individual title in 2014, with Klinger finishing in second place.

Last year, Klinger won the individual title for the first time and Taub finished second.

No team or individual had won back-to-back league titles until Klinger and Taub did it as a team in 2020 and 2021. They previously won team championships in 2016 and 2018.

Klinger has played in the league since it began in 2013. He also won the team title with Howard Meyers in 2014. Taub has played in the league since 2013, but he was a substitute the first year.

While the championships are nice, Taub said, winning isn’t the only reason why he enjoys playing in the league.

“The camaraderie is great. This is a good group of guys,” he said. “Playing each week is a nice way to end the day.”

League golfers play a nine-hole round starting late Thursday afternoon at the Links of Novi.

All 24 spots in the league were filled this year.

After the first two weeks of play were rained out, the league played 17 straight weeks without a postponement, finishing Aug. 26.

1. Dale Taub/Gary Klinger 193 points.
