A write-up of the Tuesday, August 9, and Tuesday, August 16, March Meadows Senior Men golf rounds.

March Meadows Senior Men

The Tuesday, August 9, meeting of the March Meadows Senior Men was well attended.

However, it seems the players didn’t have their hearts in the game.

Only nine balls were awarded.

These included Mike Morgan for the closest to the hole on number one and John McCormick on number seven.

Jug Kalar had the only birdie and Daryl Proulx the only sandy par.  Roy Lavigne and Bob Vessey made chip-in pars.

Bob also had the low net and Earl La Forge had low gross.

This writer feels that the players were holding back their best games for the beginning of the Senior Championship rounds.

The first of the championship rounds began Tuesday, August 16, and by the end of the round it became apparent that the players were holding back on the previous meeting.

A total of nineteen players were awarded balls.

Gary Callander became the first this season to get closest to the hole on both numbers one and seven in the same round.

There was a long list of birdies including: Jug Kalar, Daryl Proulx, Mick Clark, Earl La Forge, John McCormick, Garry Callander (2), Tony Tosdevine, Bruce Chisholm and Tom Clarkson (2).

Jug Kalar and John McCormick also had chip-in birdies.

Bob Burden and Lavine King had chip-in pars while Don Cochrane, Tom Clarkson and John White had sandy pars.

The low net and low gross scores for the August 16 and 23 rounds will not be reported.

We don’t want to spoil the surprise.

Duffers who consistently shank their balls are urged to buy and study Shanks – No Thanks by R.K. Hoffman, or in extreme cases, M.S. Howard’s excellent Tennis for Beginners.
