We were but few this year, however the weather was superb and all had a great time.
I probably had more fun than anyone as I amassed enough winnings to win the "Distinguished Golfer Trophy".
A brief summary of the three days of golf follows (the facts and nothing but the facts):
There were 6 Good Guy golfers each day, Dick Apple, Barney Bauermeister, Ken Carpenter,
Larry Feldhaus, Ray Jackson, and Bill Shumann. Shirley Keppel-Carpenter and Carolyn Apple joined us on Monday.
Each day was low net, a modified Stableford team score, fewest putts and closest to the pin on
two holes. Tuesday was a string game.
Monday @ Litchfield Country Club (70.1/121):
Barney won $15.; $11 for low net (75) and tie for fewest putts (32).
Ken won $16; $4 for low net (84), $8 for closest to the pin and $4 for team score.
Ray won $13; $9 for low net (79) and $4 for team score.
Dick won $10; $6 for low net (83) and $4 for team score.
Larry won $6; $2 for low net (86) and $4 for tie on fewest putts (32).
Shirley won $4 for team score.
Tuesday @ Willbrook Plantation (68.5/118):
We played a string game that allowed use of string to move the ball in any direction without penalty.
You were given a foot of string for each stroke of handicap and you cut off the used string, then you used one-half your handicap.
There were a bunch of net eagles and a big bunch of net birdies, and much fewer putts required.
Barney won $13.; $9 for low net (67) and $4 for team score.
Ken won $17.; $7 for low net (74), $6 for fewest putts (18), and $4 for team score.
Dick won $8.; $5 for low net (77) and $3 for closest to the pin.
Larry won $10.; $3 for low net (92) and $3. for closest to the pin and $4 for team score.
Wednesday @ The River Club (68.3/119):
Barney won $9 for low net (68).
Ken won $14,; $7 for low net (71), $3 for closest to the pin and $4 for team score.
Dick won $11; $5 for low net (75) and $6 for fewest putts (30).
Larry won $4. for team score
Ray won $10.; $3 for low net (78), $3 for closest to the pin and $4 for team score.
Bill $0. (Better to say that Bill missed the cut, huh?)
