Seniors battle wind again

On May 4, the South Dakota winds were howling out of the northwest. This condition appeared to affect both the attendance at 24 and the higher team scores.

The only really outstanding score was a 37 for first place that was turned in by the team of Sid Davis, Milo Gilbertson and Elmer Mount. It was the brilliant shooting of teammate Davis that contributed to the team victory. Davis dropped a 20-foot birdie putt on #6 to impress the group of golfers.

The second and third place teams tied at 40. Second position went to the team of Shorty Hanson, Ken Beringer and Guy Button because of a par on #4. Third spot with the other 40 was taken by the team of Turk Pilker, Jack Doyle and Fritz Bartels.

The fourth and fifth place teams also tied at 41. However, due to the handicap rule, a par at the second most difficult hole of #7 gave the victory to the team of Bob Solomon, Gene Iverson and Lloyd Helseth. And that was as far down as prizes were given. Although in a losing effort, the longest birdie putt of the day was made by Don Baer with a 33 footer at #2.
