Seniors shake things up with Texas Scramble

Teams of four played in a best ball format for the prizes at March Meadows Senior Men's Day

Since the greens had been punched for aeration, on Sept. 11, we decided to play a Texas Scramble.  Teams of four played in a best ball format for the prizes.

First place was won by the Divot Kings, Frank Magrin, John McCormick, Rick Nott and Bill Cozens.  Second place was taken by Leo’s Gang, Leo Tardiff, Jug Kalar, Dave Gamble and Frank Fraser.  In third place was Road Kill, Rocky Wise, Bruce Chisholm, Don Cochrane and John Barger.

Rick Nott and Lance Lingren won the closest to the pin prizes.

The season is winding down, with a couple of regular golf games left and then our Wind-Up Game and Banquet on Oct. 2.

Duffer O’Doul offers this free golf advice, “Don’t buy a new putter until you have had a chance to throw it.”
