March Meadows Senior Men

It was a grand day for golf as the March Meadows Senior Men once more took to the links.  We are starting to get rid of the winter kinks, the swings are smoothing out and scores are starting to drop.  Well, at least for some of us.

This week the closest to the pin goes to Eric Olson on number one, and Jack Ringheim on number seven.

Chip-in pars went to John White and Rocky Wise, while Everett Sandvelle dropped in a chip-in birdie.  Birdies were holed by Jug Kalar, John McCormick, Ray Bourassa and Rocky Wise.  Jug Kalar and Tom Clarkson scrambled for sandy pars.

The low gross winner this week goes to John McCormick and the low net to Henry Monti.  Frank Magrin knew the slogan (Play hard, play fair, and have fun).

The quest for the putting trophy began this week and will continue over the summer.  Remember; keep your head down and practice,  practice, practice.
