Julie finally sinks a birdie
Thunderstorms did not show up as predicted this week (June 11) allowing another fine night of golf for the Wednesday Evening Ladies League. Playing the front nine, our hosts, First National Bank, gave out several pin prizes. These were won by Jenny Chandler for closest to the pin on #8, Rhoda Grant for tempting fate and getting as close as she could to the sand on #6 without actually going in, and Tammy Baisden for the longest putt on #2. In the clubhouse Julie Lewison won the Quackson.
Only one golfer on the front nine managed a birdie this week. That was Julie Heine who broke a 10-year birdie drought by sinking one on #8. Karine Amundson, playing the back nine, had a birdie on #15. Back on the front, Jenny Chandler shot the low gross with a 40 and Tammy Baisden picks up another honor for shooting the low net of 25.
