After an exciting weekend of competition in the Men’s and Women’s Club Championships, Dave and I would like to again congratulate Michelle Kirby and Jim Fredo for winning their respective competitions. Michelle chased down Toni Sawyer after Toni shot a blistering 85 on the first day. Michelle’s 2 day total was 177, to win by 3. This is Michelle’s 10th (!!!) women’s club championship victory. Great playing to all the Ladies! As for Jim, he had a shaky first day of play, however rallied to hit 18/18 greens the second day to shoot a smooth 68. A fellow competitor said: “It was the most amazing round of golf I’ve ever seen.” Jim continued his form on the third and final day, shooting a 1 under par 70, for a three day total of 214. Justin Sumbrum, Ricky Finnegan and Michael Carrig, Jr. were in hot pursuit all day, but Jim simply couldn’t be beaten. Also, a quick shoutout to Pat Scanlon, who had the low round of the tournament, firing a 66 on Sunday’s round. The course record of 63 was certainly in his sights. All in all, it was an exciting and fun weekend of competition through all the flights, and Dave and I certainly appreciate everyone participating!
With the weekend recap over, let’s look ahead to this upcoming week. Only a few things to keep in mind: this week marks the end of, the Ladies Wednesday 9 hole league, and the men’s league on Thursday nights, as well as a Monday Outing on the 12th.
