Breezy Point Par-Tee News
Eileen Watson's 57 last week tied Par Tee's record low score set by Nancy Heffernan last year. Finishing at two over par, it was surprising to learn that Eileen started to play golf only three and a half years ago after retiring from the Army. And even she confessed amazement at how well her game went. "I couldn't do anything right just two days before."
Last week’s low scorer, Peggy Ansbro, finished at 62, Evelyn Gannon 63, Pam Armour 64, and Peggy Hurley 65, her best so far this year. Barbara Caramelli and Terry Gearity came in at 66, Doris Neimeth and Muriel Hellreigel (in her lowest) followed at 67. For Doris it was a morning of 'almosts'. On the fifth hole her tee shot rolled on the green directly toward to cup, touched the pin but didn't drop, and kept going. She had at least a half dozen putts that stopped dead at the edge of the cup, as though the surface were velcro. Pat Wheeler and Barbara O'Brien finished at 69.
It was good to welcome Lynn Canavan back to Par Tee for the first time this season, delayed because of arm problems. She and Nancy Heffernan scored 70. Joan Cawley came in with 71, followed by Dottie Dunne, Tess Kearney, Anne Ross and Mil- dred Seligman&t 72. Marge O'Leary completed her round at 73, Sally Fitzpatrick 74, Marge Driscoll 75 and Anne Dowling and Pat Powers 76. Mary O'Rourke and Anne Prior scored 78 and Lil Keim 79.
There were 21 birdies last Thursday, more than anytime so far this year. Eileen Watson bagged four of them, on 8, 10, 12 and 17, and Evelyn Gannon garnered the same amount on 3, 5, 6 and 18. Lynn Canavan had a pair on I and 17, Pam Armour's two were on 2 and 5, and Joan Cawley's on 5 and 18. Single birdies were made by Sally Fitzpatrick on 2, Doris Neimeth and Peggy Ansbro on 7, Pat Wheeler on 11, and Barbara Caramelli on 18. Tess Kearney and Anne Lane executed chip-in birdies, Tess on
12, Anne on 10. The remaining chip-ins went to Mary O'Rourke on the first hole, Tina Spina and Vera Lynch on 2, Anne Prior on 3, Luella Clark on 13, Barbara O'Brien and Anne Lane on 14 and Marge O'Leary on 16.
In last week's column I incorrectly reported that Inez Moriarty had returned to the course. She is back to almost everything else but golf will have to wait a few more weeks.
The annual outing to the Hunterdon Playhouse on Wednesday of last week got rave reviews. The luncheon is always good, and the show was one of the best that they've staged. Another hit for Mary Kamper who makes this possible every year. Even the bus trip is enjoyable. Just ask Tina Spina ..... she won again. However, she did not take the split club winnings after golf last Thursday. I got lucky this time. The lunch sandwiches from a different DELI were DELIghtful. Another plus for our ladies in charge.
Another enjoyable time at the Catholic Club is scheduled for this Saturday evening, July 31. A Night On The Green. There's a putting competition, great food and music and good company. Art Mayrose will be happy to take reservations.
