Senior golfers gathered at the regular day, Tuesday, at the regular time, 1:30 p.m., ready to give par a try on a day that reached 64 degrees, was overcast, with a tricky wind. The course mastered the players this date with a 1 over par 37 leading our eight teams best-ever score this date.
We were happy to see some of our winter visitors to the southland back at The Bluffs. Maurice Erickson, Pete Berglund, and Dick Kellogg rejoined us and we were glad to have them back.
We had 26 players on eight teams � since we play a three-man team and 26 is not divisible by three, we were in a dilemma, so the problem was solved by having two of our eight teams become four-man teams. We all played and had fun.
One of our four-man teams of Bob Satter, Tim O'Connor, Ray Lynn and Howard Connors was the winner at a 1 over par 37. In second place at 39 we had Ron Steckelberg, Maurice Erickson, Jim Grabowski and Jim Reed. Following in third place at 41 we had Max Andersen, Ted Van Bruggen and Fritz Bartels. Three teams tied for the fourth spot at 43. The tie-breaker system gave the prize to David Bak, Jack Stewart and Berwyn Svoboda. Congratulations, men.
The seniors had two birdies on the day so we honor Ron Steckelberg for his 29-foot birdie putt on #7 and Ray Lynn for his 20-foot birdie putt, also on #7, with our shot-of-the-day award.
Next Tuesday at 12:30 p.m., senior lunch will be available and golf will tee off at 1:30 p.m. Spread the word � see you then � invite a friend to come with you.
