Breezy Point Par-Tee News
Last Thursday 42 members came out for a beautiful day on the course, a cool beginning and a warm finish. But the play on the course was less than ideal for 25 of the ladies who had their poorest score so far. No one could account for the downfall but some force was out there at Riis Park wrecking havoc. Putts wouldn’t drop into the hole, tee and chip shots couldn’t find the green. Perhaps the computer virus Y2K had spread to greener pastures.
Whatever the problem, however, Evelyn Gannon and Barbara Caramelli (in her best game) seemed to be immune, finishing at 66. Helen Currlin had her best round, 67. Barbara O’Brien was next at 72, then Pat Disch 73 and Bernice Carroll 74, all quite consistent in their games so far this year.
The same is true for Mildred Duffy who tallied 75 along with Peggy Joyce. Ann Prior and Mildred Murphy finished at 76, Marie Alleva 77 and Sally Fitzpatrick, Dorothy Dunne and Vera Lynch 78. Annette Deschler, Inez Moriarty and Nancy Garito ended at 79, completing the relatively short list of low scorers which usually includes more than half the players.
Once again the chip-in pot was a good investment with only three members sharing the pay-off. Chip-in birdies were made by Nancy Garito on 5 and Pat Disch on 7. Emily Knox executed a regular chip-in on 3. Only four other birdies were captured. Top scorers Barbara Caramelli and Evelyn Gannon got theirs on 7, Vera Lynch on 12 and Helen Carrlin on 15.
At the lunch meeting following the game Mary Sullivan sold chances for the 50/50 drawing. Guess who won—Mary Sullivan. That more than made up for her cash-less chip-in last week when there was no pay-off.
And while on the subject of high finances, Dorothy Dunne and Millie Donnelly were big winners. At the Century Club last Saturday night they shared the $1000 prize. They certainly "Pat Tee’d" after that.
