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.

  • County residents urged to vote

    Cumberland County has around 39,000 registered voters, as well as a strong reputation for voter participation.  However, as of press time on Tuesday, only 4,300 residents had taken advantage of early voting for the Aug. 7 primary and general elections. Local officials are predicting less than 50 percent of registered voters will cast their vote in the 14 days of early voting, plus election day. Only 23 percent of registered county voters participated in the May elections.

  • Naiad Kuhlman.jpg Senior olympian on the run for good health

    No one can get away with telling Naiad Kuhlman of Crossville that age is a barrier to exercise. The avid runner, personal trainer and instructor at Cumberland Medical Center’s Wellness Complex at Fairfield Glade won’t buy the excuse.

  • Enjoying nature.jpg Get your mink coat on the road

    It is interesting what animals you see crossing the roads sometimes. When animals cross roads, you can get a look at them, that wouldn't be possible if they stayed inside the cover of trees or grass. Sometimes, it is just a fleeting glance and you aren't sure what you saw. When you go into the woods looking for animals, they usually hide or leave the area before you even know they are around. But, roads are wide open with no cover. Also, most mammals are nocturnal, so they are out when we aren't. Anytime that I am on a two-lane road at night, I am always watching intently for wildlife in the headlights.

  • Abacus Column: Tennessee the third most corrupt state in the U.S.?

    According to a recent article in Time magazine, Tennessee is ranked third among U.S. States in political corruption. I am not sure how they measure such crime in order to make such a charge. Does some purveyor of statistics identify the number of elected officials proved guilty in a court of law; or merely charged with corruption?

  • A Time 4 Paws celebrates pet adoption after 3 1/2 years

    Three and a half years ago, a local no-kill animal welfare organization known as A Time 4 Paws (AT4P) received an important email. A Nashville animal shelter volunteer asked if AT4P could take two severely abused English Pointer mixes. The email said they didn't want to take back two dogs they had placed in foster care for fear they would have to kill them.
