Birdie drought hits W.E.L.L.
For the first time since I have been performing the duties of secretary for the Wednesday Evening Ladies League, there are no birdies to report. Perhaps the wind, which has been our constant companion so far this season, is getting to us all. Thus, May 24 goes down as a flightless evening.
Despite not having a birdie, Karrie Plate still had the low gross score for the evening with a 39. That's four weeks running. Having the low net score was Shelly Brunick with a 31 (53-22). Hot on her heels was Diane Duin with a 32 (45-13). Diane's score was inspired by the great play of her partner Judy Hanson. That competitive spirit rose up and drove Diane to greater lengths.
Of course, those lengths were once again exceeded by another golfer. For the second time this season Diane's long drive on a hole with a pin prize for longest drive was aced out at the end. This time it was Jenny Chandler who out-drove Diane, having her best drive of the night on #18 to win the pin prize.
Kathy Merrigan-Manning also won a pin prize for the longest putt on #12 while Mona Bye won a prize for closest to the pin on the drive on #17. After two false starts, our hosts, the Bluffs Babes, awarded the Quackson drawing to Amy Christensen. Amy had a tough round and hopefully this helped her out.
No rules were discussed this time around, which hopefully means that no one ended up in an awkward situation requiring someone to figure out what was or was not the thing to do.
Two weeks ago our "mystery" golfer was introduced as someone making a contribution to population control in Vermillion through the venue of the Dakota Days parade. That person is Darlis Labahn.
For this week, which golfer, before beginning to her career in a different business arena, had her first job sticking price labels on merchandise in a K-mart store?
Thirty six senior golfers played on Tuesday, May 30. The low score honors went to the team of Jim Stewart, Alan Clem and Morris Erickson, which shot a 35. Pat Boyles, Cliff Deverell and Dick Gregory shot a 38. Four teams shot a 39 and three teams shot a 40. It was a great day for golf.
Starting Tuesday, June 6, the senior mens league will start at 9 a.m. Coffee and rolls will be served at 8 a.m. and lunch will follow.
