Under cloudy skies, the Waukewan Ladies League competed on July 24 for Two Low Putts.

Since the course had experienced rain, the greens were challenging for the players.

With 27 putts, the team of Laurie Fox, Barbara Saimond, Bobbe Fairman and Karen Bourgeois were successful reading the curves and slopes and took first place.

Competition for the ladies was on holes 1 and 2. Jane Bowie had the longest drive on hole 1. On hole 2, Jane Frasca put her ball closest to the pin on her second shot, landing 13’2” from the pin.  They both enjoyed a trip to the prize table.

Birdies and chipins were a challenge for the ladies on the wet course. There were two birdies on hole 5. Both Dottie Simpson and Carol Ashton showed their expertise with birdies on this hole. Chipins escaped the ladies for the first time in league play.

Ladies scoring 50 and below continues. Ellen Vail shot a 50, Jane Pillsbury a 49, and Laurie Fox a 48. Val Langbehn and Gerry McGillicuddy posted 47s and Jane Bowie shot an impressive 46.  What outstanding playing for these ladies!

Barbara Saimond was the lucky winner of the 50-50 raffle.
