Par Tee Golf News: Caramelli Wins Top Honors
Bob Hope: “If I’m on the course and lightning starts, I get inside fast. If God wants to play through, let him.”
The low score for the golf action on June 10 was obtained by Barbara Caramelli with a 67. Chris Brunner had a great day finishing with a 68. In the 70s were: Marie Campbell (71), the threesome of Nancy Heffernan, Dottie Dunne and Alice Mateos scored 72. Pat Barry finished with 74, Lorraine Pierson (75), Sheila Donahue (76), Patti Kelly and Ann Ach (77), Anne Tobin (78), and Marilyn Danese (79).
Birdies belonged to Ach, Tobin and Dunne. The lone chip-in birdie belonged to Barry, who also had a chipin. Congratulations, Pat! Other chipin winners were Pierson, Tobin and Eileen Hurson. Nearest to the pin on #18 was Kay Hanratty and on #10 the winner was Lil Hanratty. The winner of the Peggy Wheeler 50/50 was Marilyn Higgins.
I had an email from Ruthie Galligan stating that she and Frank are still in Sarasota, kayaking, playing golf with lots of sweat, and swimming in the Gulf before the oil arrives. She will be home in two weeks. Welcome to our two new members: Gail Gabriele and Barbara Feddern!! Very happy to report that Pat Lunny is home and her health is improving. Keep up the good work, Pat, and we look forward to seeing you on the course.
Betty Weed had both knees replaced and is presently in rehab in Glen Cove. Get well quickly, Betty, we miss your wonderful friendship and camaraderie!! Liz Cameron will not be playing golf but will be helping Margaret Bambury prepare the brunch. The effort of both ladies is very much appreciated by all the Par Tees!
An octogenarian who was an avid golfer moved to a new town and joined the local Country Club. He went to the club for the first time to play but was told that there wasn’t anybody he could play with because they were already out on the course.
He repeated several times that he really wanted to play today. Finally, the assistant Pro said he would play with him and asked him how many strokes he wanted for a bet. The 80- year-old said, “I really don’t need any strokes as I have been playing quite well. The only real problem I have is getting out of sand traps.”
And he did play well. Coming to the par four 18th they were all even. The Pro had a nice drive and was able to get on the green and two-putt for a par. The old man had a nice drive, but his approach shot landed in a sand trap next to the green.
Playing from the bunker he hit a high ball, which landed on the green and rolled into the cup. Birdie, match and all the money! The Pro walked over to the sand trap where his opponent was still standing in the trap. He said, “Nice shot, but I thought you said you have a problem getting out of sand traps? Replied the octogenarian, “I do, would you please give me a hand.”
God Bless. Have a great week!
