Par Tee Golf News By Peg Ansbro
The secret of good golf is to hit the ball hard, straight and not too often. There are three ways to improve your golf game: take lessons, practice constantly… or start cheating. In last week’s action Peg Ansbro scored 62. Right behind her with a 63 was Dolores McAleer. Doris Neimeth finished with a 67.
In the seventies were: Marilyn Danese (70), Meg Feerick (71), Ann Spillane (73), Barbara Caramelli (74), Jane Donnelly Higgins (75), Alice Mateos (76), Helen Mele (77); the trio of Lorraine Pierson, Jo Sullivan and Pat Livingstone had 78, and Cissy Savarese finished with 79. Closest to the pin on hole #10 was Doris Neimeth and on hole #18 the winner was Marge Lentnek. Two birdies went chirrping to Peg Ansbro and one to Marilyn Danese. Chip-ins was shared by Marie Heffernan, Cissy Savarese, Carol Bayne, Nancy Tutolo, Meg Feerick and Pat Livingston! The Peggy Wheeler 50/50 was won by Barbara Feddern.
Two wonderful scores were not recorded on July 12. They belong to Joan Fallon who obtained a 67 and Joan McNally finished with a 68. We are so sorry for the oversight and congratulations to both golfers.
Our president, Jane Donnelly Higgins, again thanked Marie Heffernan and Helen Mele on running a wonderful “Guys and Dolls” tournament. In regard to this tournament we have three options on next year’s play.
An email will be sent asking for your choice of a time for the tournament/ lunch/dinner. The choices are (A) golf at 8:30 a.m. followed by lunch, (B) golf at 3:30 followed by dinner, and (C) golf at 8:30 and dinner at 5:30. Think about it and make a decision. Here is a reminder that the tournament dates at Riis Park are August 23 and August 30 (rain date-Sept. 6). Our favorite golfer and his bride, Tess and Tom Kearney, are celebrating their 76th wedding anniversary on Thursday, August 9. There will be an 11 a.m. mass at St. Thomas More to mark this momentous event. Every happy marriage is made of three things-a loving husband, a loving wife, and the lasting love of God. Tess and Tom, as you celebrate your 76th anniversary, may God continue to bless your lives with the love and the joy that you find in each other. A couple of buddies decide to play together for the first time. Mac is an avid golfer and Jimmy is new to the game. On the way to the course, Mac asks, “By the way, what’s your handicap?” Jimmy replies, “I don’t have one…it’s more like a permanent disability.”
