March Meadows Senior Men

The March Meadows Senior Men enjoyed a warm and dry day for their last meeting in the month of May.

The day also saw the beginning of the 8 a.m. tee off, which may be the reason for a few late-comers.

Still, attendance was good for the match play qualifying round.

This week’s balls were awarded to a number of players.

Bob Vessey was closest to the pin on hole one and Ray Bourassa on hole seven.  Chip-in pars went to Ron McGovern and Rocky Wise.  Jug Kalar, Jim Peterson, Tom Clarkson and Bob Vessey made good recovery shots from the traps and scored pars.

Ron McGovern, Rick McDonald, John McCormick, Rick Nott, and Daryl Proulx all carded birdies.

Daryl also had the low gross score and Jug Kalar the low net.  John Leach knew the slogan (Play hard, play fair, and have fun).

Sixteen members will be receiving a ball for perfect attendance in May.

In the Battle of the Barrel this week the score was:  Barrel 30 – Golfers 0.

Golf is a game that is played on a five-inch course – the distance between your ears.
