Graeagle Men’s Golf Association (GMGA) Wednesday Play Day
The June 18 regular GMGA Wednesday Play Day was combined with the annual Beat The Pro Golf Tournament. Head Golf Professional Bob Kline shot gross 74 from the blue tees, which became the target for the 28 entrants in the Tournament. Sixteen members shot a net 73 or better and, therefore, Beat The Pro. Obviously, the other twelve of us did not Beat The Pro.
In the regular Wednesday Play Day, the game was Individual Gross and Net Stroke Play. The winners in the gross flight were Jim Adams with an 80, and second was Bryan Hansen with an 81. There were five skins awarded in the White Tee Flight, two to Dan Anderson and one each to Bryan Hansen, Ron Eaton and Jim Reynolds.
In the Combo Tee Flight low net was won by John Grasso with a 64, second was a tie between Jack Heskett and Chuck Franck with a net 65. Six skins were awarded in the Combo Tee Flight. Two to Chuck Franck, and one each to Dennis Flynn, John Grasso, Gino Martini and Ron Halstead.
Three Clubs and a Putter was the game the West Shore ladies played on Thursday, June 19. Linda Kluge’s score of 75 put her in first place. Kathy Doms took second with a 76 and Kathy Shennan’s 77 gave her third place.
Kathy Doms was the only player to get both a chip-in and a birdie. She made the birdie on the first hole and the chip-in on number 9.
It was quite a windy day on Thursday, June 12, for the Par 4’s-1/2 handicap game. The players had to stop now and then to let a gust of wind blow through but they still enjoyed the pleasant weather. Karen Nelson took top honors in that game with Kathy Doms taking second and Carolyn Wilhoit taking third. There were no birdies or chip-ins.
