I know that many of us have played in the rain and it really can be miserable. There were no drop outs, so my hat’s off to the entire group.
Here are the soggy results. Winning first low gross was the team of Mark Hanley and Lowell Watson. In second place were Tom Burnham and John Reeves and in third were that young whippersnapper, Kyle Feltis, and his guest, Andrew Sullivan. First low net was won by Wim Hart and Guss Dimaggio. (Could he be related to Joe, Dom and Vince?) In second place were Ben Buckland and Ryan Sirois and in third were Rodney Waltz and Jesse Schmal.
Ryan Low had the longest drive on Saturday. Tom Burnham was closest to the pin on holes 3 and 12 with a shot that finished 6’11” from the hole. Closest to the pin on 8 and 17 was Tom Reeves at 7’7″.
Then on the very wet Sunday course longest drive went to Andrew Sullivan. Closest to the pin on 3 and 12 was Guss Dimaggio at 8’11” and closest to the pin on 8 and 17 was Tom Burnham at a mere 5-ft.
If I had to put my money on a player for the closest to the pin prize, it would be Tom Burnham. Congratulations to everyone for hanging in so well. Hopefully next year will bring a dryer weekend.
Closest to the pin on hole 14 was John Ineson, closest to the center line on seven was Ken Coombs and with low putts of 10 was the team of Ian Drewette and Doug Halm, only one away from the Wednesday Morning League record.
So after three weeks of the season second half, the team of Anderson/Morris is in first place with six points, Ineson/Deeger are second with eight and in third place is the team of Olsen/Laird with nine points.
There was a two-way tie for the queen of no putts between Anne Knott and Patsy Dey. These players had chip-ins on holes No. 2 and 6, respectively.
There was a four-way tie for the queen of one putts among Stephanie Russell, Pim Faust, Linda MacNeil and Alex Whitney. The overall queen of low putts was Anne Knott with a total of 13 putts for the round. Traci Beier made birdies on holes No. 1 and 2. (Trudi Snediker)
There is also the annual Alvin Sproul, Samoset 10K Road Race at 8 a.m., beginning at the Bristol Consolidated School on Rt. 130. The pre-race entry fee is $12 and $15 for race day. So, Wawenock walkers, a 10K ought to be a “piece of cake” for you. For more information call Dan at 677-3666.
Let me also mention that I witnessed a most unusual shot by Dan Mocarski last week. On the 11th hole his drive hit the white 150-yard marker on the fly and caromed sharply off to the left away from the hole. I figure he must have lost almost 100 yards of distance as a result of that encounter, but he was completely calm and unaffected by the unfortunate bounce.
