Senior Men's Fun Golf League
The rain scheduled for Monday night was a few hours tardy and arrived as 40 seniors had completed two holes on the back nine at the Bluffs on Tuesday, July 9. The siren sounded and we headed for the cart sheds. After about 50 minutes the weather had cleared and play resumed.
With eight birdies this date the scores were bunched and very competitive. Our winners at even par 36 were Don Baer, Ivan Pierce, Lloyd Helseth and Milo Gilberson. At 37, Ken Beringer, Ray Mount and Bill Rasmussen; at 38, Dave Raabe, Howard Connors and Quentin Oleson along with David Bak, Dick Munkvold and Don Bensen and the team of Pete Berglund, Ted Van Bruggen and Cal Peterson.
Finally at 39, prizes went to the three-man team of Loren Carlson, Mel Marcotte and Stan Munger and the four-man team of Shorty Hanson, Jim Grabowski, Cleland Cook and Tom Walker.
Several seniors were recommended for shot-of-the-day awards so here they are. Bob Lund for his 45' birdie chip-in on #14; Bill Rasmussen for his 30' par putt on #13; Pete Berglund for his 27' birdie putt on #13; Ted Van Bruggen for his 24' birdie putt on #14 and finally Lloyd Helseth for his tricky down hill birdie putt on #12. Congratulations to all for these fine shots.
Be here at 8:30 a.m. next Tuesday for coffee, donuts, conversation, and fellowship with fun golf at 9:30 a.m. or sooner. See you July 16.
