Published DateThe Waukewan nine-holers played their second round of the season after last week's rainout. Despite gray skies and a few light showers, the game of the week was completed. "Two Best Putts" was the competition as each foursome added the two lowest putts of each hole for their score. The total for the nine holes was matched against the other team's score and the winning total was a 29 for the team of Jan Pano, Gerry McGillicuddy, Ann Perra and Jackie Paulhus. Prize coordinator Carol Ashton presented the ladies their winnings.
The contest holes this week were Longest Drive on hole #8 for both the handicapped divisions. Gail Clarke in the 20 and above division and Jane Flynn in the 19 and below division drove their balls long and straight, keeping them in the fairway to win their well-deserved prize. Laurie Fox placed her drive 12 feet from the pin on the third hole to win the Closest to the Pin.
Carol Ashton was the first of the season to add her "birdie" to the "Birdie Tree" by scoring a two on the par 3 third hole. Her ball came to rest about twenty feet from the pin. She stroked her uphill putt perfectly for it to fall into the cup. Rose Hansford, keeper of the tree, added Carol's "bird" to one of the branches. Jackie Belanger was the only chip-in and she accomplished this win also with a long putt on hole #5. Her ball was just off the green so she was able to putt a 20-25 foot putt on target to win the competition.
There were five golfers who shot in the 50 and under category. Despite wet conditions the following ladies played well enough to be recognized. Laurie Fox shot a 46, Carol Ashton-47, Val Langbehn and Jan Pano-48 and Denise Doyle-49. Plus Val Langbehn was living large as she won the 50/50 raffle.
