Par Tee Golf News By Peg Ansbro

Eileen Watson, a retired Army nurse and colonel in the US Army, finished with a spectacular score of 58; 55 is par for the course. Well done, Eileen!

Next in line was Doris Neimeth with a 63. Also in the sixties were: Dolores McAleer (66), Alice Mateos (67), Marge Lentnek (68) and Meg Ferrick (69). In the seventies we have: Mary Ellen Hogan (70), Helen Mele (72), Peg Ansbro (73), Pat Kelly, Lorraine Pierson and Carol Bayne (74), Marilyn Higgins (77), Jane Donnelly Higgins and Nancy Tutolo (78), Pat Livingstone, Cissy Savarese, and Jo Sullivan (79). The ladies outdid themselves with 5 chip-in birdies and 6 birdies.

Credit for chip-in birdies belongs to Barbara Caramelli, Kate Hanratty, Mary Powers, Pat Jordan. Nancy Tutolo had both a chip-in birdie and a birdie. Birdies went chirping to Jane Donnelly Higgins, Pat Livingstone, Marge Lentnek, Ann Spillane and Doris Neimeth had both a birdie and a chip-in. Doris Neimeth with a score of 10 feet, 5 inches had closest to the pin on hole #10. Closest to the pin on #1 was Pat Livingstone with a score of 2 feet, 11 inches. The winner of the Peggy Wheeler 50/50 was Alice Mateos.

Golf Directions: Golf: A 5 mile walk punctuated with disappointments. Fairway: An unfamiliar tract of closely mowed grass running from the tee to the green. Your ball is usually found to the right or left of it.

Oxymoron: An easy par 3. Practice tee: A place where golfers go to convert a nasty hook into a wicked slice. Mulligan: Invented by an Irishman who wanted one more 20-yard grounder. Former Pros Jackie Burke and Jimmy Demarest had the best sports psychologist in the world. His name was Jack Daniels and he was waiting for them after ever round. God Bless. Have a great week.
