Senior men golfers prepare for championship

Senior Men’s Medal Golf Championship will be played August 21 and 28 — eight rounds to qualify.

The last day of July saw 48 golfers challenge March Meadows Golf Course, which is in beautiful shape.  There were “no gimmees” as putts were being counted for the overall putting championship.

Earl Laforge shot the best gross score for the day with a 79, while Brian Crossan had the best net score with a 66.

John Whit was closest to pin (KP) on Number One and Laforge was KP on Number Seven.

Birdies were scored by Laforge, Jug Kalar, Gerry Janzen, and John White.  Bruce Chisholm and Tom Clarkson each had two birdies.


Sandy-pars were blasted by Rick Nott, Britt Ellis and Bill Atkinson.

Chip-ins were accomplished by Kalar, Chisholm and Frank Fraser.

The Senior Men’s Medal Golf Championship will be played August 21 and 28.  You need eight rounds to qualify.

If you’re afraid you might reach the green while the foursome ahead of you is putting out the Duffer’s advice is:

Hit immediately and shank your lay up into the rough or wait until the green is clear and top a ball half way there.
