Par Tee Golf News: Big Turnout For Golfers

By Peg Ansbro

“I play in the low 80s. If it gets any hotter I won’t play,” – Joe E. Lewis.

Last Thursday, June 22, Par Tee members braved the elements and showed up at Riis Park! I could not see the telephone pole in front of my home and decided there would be no play… so I slept in.

Imagine my surprise when I learned that we had the best attendance of the year!! Go figure!!!

And through this relentless fog our fearless group trudged on! And the results were: Tied for low score for the day were Nancy Heffernan and Doris Neimeth with a 69! In the 70s were: Pam Armour (71), Barbara Caramelli (74) and Patti Kelly and Carol Bayne both had 75. Lyn Canavan, Lorraine Pierson, Marilyn Danese and Marilyn Higgins all had 76. Betty Weed scored 77, Joan McNally had a 78 and Helen Mele finished with a 79.

The one chip-in for the day belongs to Kathleen Joyce on hole #4. And the only birdie for the day went to Barbara Caramelli on 16. Closest to the pin on #10 was Barbara Caramelli who was only 2 feet 2 inches from the hole. Pam Armour was closest to the pin on #18 with a distance of 12 feet and one half inch. The winner of the Peggy Wheeler 50/50 was Kathleen Joyce.

A husband and wife are on the ninth green when suddenly she collapses from a heart attack. “Help me dear,” she groans to her husband. The husband dials 911 on his cell phone, talks for a few minutes, picks up his putter, and lines up his putt. His wife raises her head off the green and stares at him. “I’m dying over here and you’re putting?” “Don’t worry dear,” says the husband calmly. “They found a doctor on the second hole and he’s coming to help you.” “Well, how long will it take for him to get here?” she asks feebly. “No time at all,” says her husband, practicing his putting stroke. “Everybody already agreed to let him play through.”

God Bless. Have a great week!
