Birch Ridge Report: Right swing, wrong day

Posted: Thursday, July 15, 2004

I don't know about you, but I have never seen a hole in one in action. I, of course, have never seen it from my own masterly drive (laugh if you will); nor have I seen it performed by anyone who is near and dear.

But I do know the following person who made two of them on the same day, yet. Curtis Nelson. Hole six. The day before the Red Cross Tournament.

The object, of course, was to perform that magical feat on the day of the event, thereby winning a trip to Hawaii. Ah, the luck of a golfer.

Congrats anyway, Curtis, and are they lining up for lessons?

Second-place team members Don McGhee, Charles Benson and Tom Maloney for Men's Night were excited and giddy as usual, but not as much as first placers "Dandy" Dan Murphy, Jim Oliver and Dave Stein. Dandy scored closest-to on hole eight, while long drive applause went to Bob Sizemore. A pure birdie was performed by Tom Maloney on hole nine.

Our mighty Seniors are enjoying the hot and humid days. Winner this last week with low net score of 29 was Roger Jones, who also was closest-to on hole six and hole eight. Gee, Roger, didn't you let anyone else play?

Tuesday morning ladies had another fine week. First placers with a 41 were Kathi Nielson, Dee Richards and Cheryl Hammarstrom. Cheryl came in closest-to on hole eight while Louise Schaedle garnered longest putt honors on hole five.

Must dash ... summer company abounds around my house, but I just might get to see you on the front nine!
