Breezy Point Par-Tee News
This column’s top billing usually goes to the low scorer, to a tournament winner or the golfer who makes that perfect drive–a hole in one.
Today, however, Anne Dufficy gets foremost attention for two reasons. During the past four seasons in which her scores have seldom been below 90, she emerged last Thursday with her best game ever, a remarkable 74, stunning herself and the rest of us, too. The other reason for highlighting Judge Dufficy was that she shared some inciteful comments on "A Civic Action" at the book discussion held the night before. She amazed us with her skillful play and informed us by way of her judicial experience.
From our group of 47 who came out for this next to the last game of the season, Nancy Heffernan and Pat Wheeler topped the list finishing at 60. Doris Neimeth’s 62 put her aheadof Peggy Ansbro and Barbara Caramelli’ at 64, and Evelyn Gannon at 65, Pam Armour, Pat Disch and Barbara O’Brien were next at 68, then Ann Prior, 69.
Lil Keim palyed her season’s best, a 70, along with Muriel Hellreigel, followed by Terry Gearity, 72, and Helen McDonald at 73, tying her best score. Tess Kearney finished at 74, Annette Deschler 75 and Edith Savarese and Pat Powers 76. Peggy Joyce, Mary O’Rourke, Marge O’Leary and Tina Spina came in with 77, Anne Lane, Joan Cawley and Dottie Dunne 78, and Eileen Klein and Anne Dowling 79. Others, though not on this list, who turned in their best scores so far, were, Roz Borelli, Peggy Harvey and Gloria Tropea.
There was only one chip-in birdie in that game and it was earned by our headliner, Anne Dufficy, on five. Her expertise continued as she chipped into the eight hole as well. Dottie Dunne’s chip-in came on 14 and Mary Sullivan’s on 15. Dottie, however, was cheated out of a hole-in-one when the ball landed on the fifth green, hit the pin, rolled around the cup but did not drop. She reluctantly settled for a birdie.
The remaining birdies were made by Pat Wheeler on two, 12 and 18, by Dottie Chandler on one, Barbara O’Brien on two, Peggy Joyce and Peggy Ansbro on seven, Barbara Caramelli nine, Lil Keim 11, anne Prior 12, Doris Neimrth 17 and Nancy Heffernan 18. Peggy Ansbro’s luck continued after the game when she won the split club cash.
If you missed the teen "Show of the Century" last week, you lost out on a most energetic and spirited performance by some of our very talented young people. Mary Ellen Barnes and her team worked hard and long with the teenagers and they sparkled through an engaging entertainment. The audience and cast had a good time. We were all winners especially the boys and girls who felt good about themselves and what they accomplished.
