Par Tee Golf News

By Peg Ansbro Golf Meditations:

The shortest distance between any two points on a golf course is a straight line that passes directly through the center of a very large tree! You can hit a two-acre fairway 10 percent of the time and a twoinch branch 90 percent of the time!

Congratulations to Pat Kelly who finished with the best score in last week’s play. She had a 70. Well done, Patti. Also, in the seventies were Peg Ansbro (71), Joan Fallon (74), Dolores McAleer (75) and tied with 76 were Ann Spillane and Betty Weed. Birdies went chirping to Betty Weed on hole #9 and Joan Fallon on hole #14 and Peg Ansbro on hole #10. Chip-ins belonged to Marilyn Danese and Peg Ansbro.

Attention: Par Tee ladies 2012 golf season still open to new members. We play every Thursday at Riis Park at 7:30 a.m. There is no pressure …just lots of fun so come on out! Call Valerie for information at 718-318-1346. We haven’t lost a golfer yet; a few balls from time to time, but never a golfer! Golfing truths, sayings and clich├ęs:

Always concede the fourth putt. Bunkers have the unnerving habit of rushing out to meet your ball. Coincidentally, the only remaining set of clubs in the professional’s shop was made especially for you.

Curing the faults in your swing can never be affected in just one lesson from a professional.

Curly, downhill, left-to-right putts are usually followed by curly, uphill, right-to-left putts.

Who do you think you are?? Jesus and Arnold Palmer were playing golf. It’s Arnold’s turn to tee off, and he does so. It’s a long drive straight up the fairway, and he’s about a five iron off the green. “Not bad,” Jesus says.

Jesus step up to tee off, but His drive slices badly and lands on an island in the middle of a water hazard. Jesus calmly walks across the water to take his next shot. “Jesus!” yells Palmer, “Who do you think you are, Jack Nicklaus?”

God Bless. Have a great week!
