Thursday, August 12 was the last official game of the season. Our two day tournament commences on August 19 and 26.
And believe it or not, we are planning our closing luncheon! It will be held at Russo’s on the Bay on September 16. Co-chairladies, Pat Barry and Nancy Heffernan, would like checks made out to “Par Tee Golf.” The cost is $40 for members and $50 for non-members!
After a particularly poor game of golf, a popular club member skipped the clubhouse and started to go home. As he was walking to the parking lot to get his car, a policeman stopped him and asked, “Did you tee off on the sixteenth hole about twenty minutes ago?”
“Yes,” the golfer responded.
“Did you happen to hook your ball so that it went over the trees and off the course?”
“Yes, I did. How did you know?” he asked.
“Well,” said the policeman very seriously, “your ball flew out into the highway and crashed through a driver’s windshield. The car went out of control, crashing into five other cars and a fire truck.
“The fire truck couldn’t make it to the fire, and the building burned down. So, what are you going to do about it?”
The golfer thought it over carefully and responded, “I think I’ll close my stance a little bit, tighten my grip and lower my right thumb.”
God Bless. Have a great week!!
