Someone had better test the water at Druid Hills Golf Course for the magic golf potion because the Chicks with Sticks absolutely brought the course to its knees on Thursday, June 1, 2006. Not only did all the teams do well, they all made it off the course before lightning struck — well, almost. The last group witnessed a near miss on #18. Oops!

The first-place team of Sharon Ellis, Fran Kinnunen, Dale McCunn and Jan Wiler headed into Bogie's Restaurant with +21 in points and this was on Druid! Sharon shot 86 with two birdies and Dale shot 88 with one birdie. Fran chimed in with one birdie and Jan was +5 in points. Great round, ladies.

Connie Fusco, who shot 84 with one birdie, led her team of Carol Soucie (who had one birdie), Lou Powers and Dorothy Roise to second-place honors for a team total of +12. The third-place team of Jackie Korte, Jane Madon, Susan Spencer and Karen Toomey came in at +8 and the fourth-place team of Barb Stecker, Jan Cashner, Katy Stephens and Linda Morgan came in with +4.

Barb, make sure you collect your winnings from Connie!

Peggy Truxton and Yoko Buswell tallied the only other birdies of the day. One more round of note was Nancy Pierce at 82.

All in all it was a great day for golf — cooler temperatures, a fun round of golf with friends and some pretty terrific scores for the effort.
