Par Tee Club Announces New Golf Members
In last week's action, Eileen Watson once again was the top scorer with a 64. She was followed by Doris Neimeth and Peg Ansbro with 65. Also in the 60s were: Marie Campbell (66), Dolores McAleer (67) and Nancy Heffernan and Alice Mateos, who both had 68.
In the 70s: the trio of Meg Feerick, Pat Lunny and MaryEllen Hogan had 70, Barbara Caramelli (72), Joan McNally (73), Marilyn Danese and Pam Armour (75), Joan Fallon (76), Lorraine Pierson (77), Helen Mele, Dottie Dunne, Carol Bayne, Pat Barry and Pat Livingstone all had 78.
The quartet of Betty Monahan, Kay Miller, Pat Kelly and Mary Mahoney all had 79. Chip-ins were made by Monahan, McAleer and Kathleen Joyce. Birdies were scored by Heffernan, Ansbro, Mary McDermott, and Lunny. Watson is credited with two birdies.
Two ladies finished with chip-in birdies: McNally and MaryEllen Hogan! Nearest to the pin on #18 was Watson and on #10 the winner was McDermott. The "Peggy Wheeler 50/50" was won by Dottie Dunne. In last week's column I should have given credit to HELEN MAHON for closest to the pin. So sorry for the error!
Last week, the Par Tees lost one of their founding members - Kay Hanratty passed away on July 13. Kay will always be remembered for her fabulous sense of humor, her graciousness, her empathy and keen mind. So long, sweetheart, rest in peace!
REMINDER: All former members of the Par Tees are invited to a brunch on Thursday, August 6 at the Catholic Club at 10:30 a.m. Please call Vera Lynch at 718-634-2493 if you can attend this reunion. We need to order food so it is important that you call Vera Lynch! Sorry I missed Mary O'Rourke on her visit to Breezy — understand she looks wonderful. Keep up the good work, Mary!!
A golfer and his buddies were playing a big round of golf for $200.
At the 18th green the golfer had a ten-foot putt to win the round, and the $200. As he was lining up his putt, a funeral procession started to pass by. The golfer set down his putter, took off his hat, placed it over his chest, and waited for the funeral procession to pass. After it passed, he picked up his putter and returned to lining up his putt. One of his buddies said, "That was the most touching thing I have ever seen. I can't believe you stopped playing, possibly losing your concentration, to pay your respects." The golfer turned to him and said, "Well, it was the least I could do. We were married for 45 years!"
God Bless. Have a great week!
