Graeagle Meadows men
The Bandits are back! Friday, July 26, a half dozen of our long hitters paired in teams of two to play Par Points. For those unfamiliar with the game, points are awarded for par or better; one for par, three for birdie, five for eagle, and eight for double eagle. No points for bogey, but double bogey is a minus two. Both balls counted for the team. Dan Friedman and Jim Reynolds accumulated 51 points to take first, followed by Tom Taylor and Chuck Hein with 50 points for second place.
Meanwhile, over on the Badditos side, while teeing off from the combo tees 13 members played individual low net plus skins. Taking first, with a low net 68 was Jack Gilbert. Tied for second at net 70 were Dave MacDonald and Norm Nichols. It was a very rare occasion that eight skins were won, Norm Nichols and Jack Gilbert both with two skins each while Andy Knudsen, Steve Harding, Bob Baker and Dennis Flynn filled out the remainder.
Wednesday, July 31, was one of our largest turnouts of the season. A total of 26 showed up to play odd-even in two man teams. Scoring was the combined net of both balls on odd numbered holes and one better ball on even numbered holes. Taking first place accumulating 89 points was the team of Jim Oster and Bert Bellows. Second place followed with 91 points for Andy Knudsen and Ken Hattich. There was a tie for third place at 97 points between the teams of Tom Taylor and Dennis Chegwin, and Tom Wilson with Bert Bellows. Bellows won twice being the blind draw for Oster. Five skins were won this day. One skin each went to Bill Hopp, Bert Bellows, Jim Oster, Tom Fregulia and Dan Friedman.
Competition in the Closest to the Hole contest is tightening up with a new name added to the list of 10. Jim Reynolds landed 6-feet, 7 3/4-inches from the edge of the hole on the Par 3 third hole. That knocked Don Barnes from the bottom of the list, while Tom Taylor improved from his number nine spot to number three on the list. Tom’s new distance stands at 3-feet, 9 3/4-inches. After the last day of weekly competition to be Sept. 6, the 10 players on the list will then compete in a shootout for cash prizes on Sunday, Sept. 15, immediately following the Men’s Club Championship tournament.
