Big Ten Golf Report

On Aug. 2 we played the Crag at Heatherhurst Country Club. The game of the day was 2 best balls for the first six holes, 3 best balls for the next six and all on the last six.  As usual the Crag yielded many good rounds. As a group we had 31 birdies. 

The "shot(s)/round of the day":  Bill Bischoff hit his tee on #5 to the right across the creek. Dropped a ball, took a penalty and knocked his third shot on the green.  He then sank about a 40 foot putt to save par.  Dave Lohman had a smooth 34 on the front nine including 3 birdies. However, we won't talk about what he shot on the back nine.  Move over 3-putt Chuck, we now have 5-putt Bob. That's right, Bob Simkins was on the par 4 #16 in two and walked off talking to himself with a 7!  Bob rebounded by 1 putting #17 for a par.  3-putt lamented that Bob could be a consultant on the book he is writing, "How to line-up/plumbob your fourth putt." Bob was playing very well and still managed to tie Raoul Sabatini for the low net of the day with a 65. The round of the day goes to Al Love with a 79.  This weeks  "Giddyup" award goes to Paul Davis for riding his playing partners into a third place finish.   

1st place @ -19:  Dan Beebe, Rich Graham, Raoul Sabatini, Gene Bowman.

2nd place @ -18 (won score card playoff): Bill Biggers, Harvey LeBeau, Bob Simkins, Harry Stamps.

3rd place @ -18 (won score card playoff): Mike Eelbode, Paul Davis, Fred Boyer, Jim Campi.

4th place @ -18: Al Bonn, Dave Lohman, Chuck Northam, Bob Suttles.

CTTP: Chet Weeks #3.

The 70s club consisted of: Chet Weeks 75, Kermit Selvig 76, Howard Swan 77, Al Love 79, Rich Graham 79, Bill Bischoff 79, Harry Stamps 79. 

Low nets for the day were: Bob Simkins 83/65, Raoul Sabatini 80/65, Chuck Northam 82/67, Jim Campi 88/67, Cliff Adams 83/68, Bill Biggers 80/68, Bob Suttles 83/68, Mike Eelbode 85/69, Tom Reigle 83/69.

Skins: Harvey LeBeau #2, Bill Biggers #6 & #10, Bob Simkins #11, Jim Salb #13, Cliff Adams #17, Gene Bowman #18.

Golf quote of the week: "Three things I fear: lightning, Ben Hogan and a downhill putt". Sam Snead 

Next week we're at Dorchester Country Club and it's our annual Big Ten couples scramble. Until then, thank the rangers for having ice water on their carts during this "hot" weather period.
