The Bluffs Bulletin Board Seniors shoot well on hot day

Tuesday, July 19 brought out 39 seniors to compete for prizes on the back nine of The Bluffs. A south wind gradually picked up speed, but it was welcomed because of a hot sun in a cloudless sky. With the breeze, only three birdies were reported; however, the scores were quite good. Leaders with a one under par 35 was the team of Turk Pilker, Jim Reed and Quentin Oleson. Next, with an even par 36 was Sid Davis, Don Baer and Jack Doyle. Two teams followed with 37 scores. First was Elmer Mount, Lloyd Helseth and Ardell Hatch followed by a four-man team of Ross Johnson, Alan Clem, Howard Connors and Ray Lynn. Winners at 38 were Jerry Sommervold, Cliff Deverell, Don Bensen and Guy Button. Two teams at 39 also got prizes. First Dave Bak, Pat Boyle and Dave Zimmer trailed by Mo Marcotte, Joe Conroy, Bob Lund and Louie Fostvedt. Shot of the day goes to Pete Berglund who made a 42-foot birdie putt on #12 in his attempt to win his team a prize. See you next week at the same time for more friendly competition.

On an evening when a breeze would be welcomed, both for heat relief and to help keep the bugs from landing, we had only a faint stirring of the air from time to time. The heat took its toll on the golfers as well. Only three women had birdies and no one won one of the pin prizes (although this was a good thing). Surviving the heat to, once again, break her partner�s string of low gross scores was Jenny Chandler. Her score of 36 beat out Karrie Plate by one stroke. So, maybe the prize should be for lowest grossing team. Hot on Jenny�s heels (sorry about that) with the low net, for the second week in a row, was Ruby Plate with a 30 (44-14). Ruby shot this score using terrific approach shots; i.e., no chipping was required. As mentioned above, only three women had birdies, but they had five among them. Jenny Chandler birdied holes 3 and 9. Karrie Plate birdied #2 and #9 while Nancy Christopherson birdied #8. Also having good things happen during their rounds were Judy Hanson and Pat Flanigan. Judy holed out for par on #4. That was her first hole out for the season. Pat had a nice par on hole #8, an apparently less than common event for her on any hole. Congratulations to both. Our hosts placed three pin prizes around the course. They were for the closest to the pin on #5, shortest drive on #6 and most sand shots on #2. Lisa Sorensen won the prize on hole 5 while Cheryl Seney had the shortest drive on #6. No one signed the card for sand shots on #2. That�s probably a good thing. The prize money will be carried over to next week. Inside the clubhouse Tammy Baisden won the Quackson playing on her mother�s money. The host team would also like to thank Edith Nelson for helping them out with their host duties as they were taken by surprise by them.
