THEY HUNTED EIGHT BIRDS & ONE EAGLE

John broke free off his chrysalis

With an impressive round that included a birdie, a KP, and several pars, long-hitting John has been christened a certified “birdie hunter” on June 17 at Riverway. His net 63.7 was quite an accomplishment on this day that saw the most hunters out on the course. This is a bit of good news, bad news day for John. His 8th official game performance with the hunters knocks several points of his handicap index but I am sure he does not mind when he collects his loot.

Worthy of the Best Shots of the Day is Chang HJ’s eagle on the first par 5 of the back 9 (13th hole) and El Capitan’s eagle putt on the same hole which gave him an easy birdie. For the near super-senior to have had the chance for the eagle putt was quite a feat – the result of a great drive and long fairway shot onto the green.

NEAR PERFECT ATTENDANCE TODAY

Bill’s ailing shoulder prevented him from joining us while Roger had to deal with Telus installation at home. Otherwise we would have had a full house.

Nonetheless, we welcome Cesar, joining us for the first time, and Tylor who is making his 2nd appearance.

BIRDIES HONOR ROLL

Seven (7) birdies and one (1) eagle were recorded today, the most ever collected in a long time. Here are the particulars:

The race for the UPS CHAMPIONSHIP is on and our most successful “birdie hunter” leads as he is the most prolific hunter and accurate KP shooter. With his 14.5 points from the last game at Peace Portal, he adds 12 more points today to come up on top with 26.5 points.

Trailing behind are ERNIE and JOHN with HAN, CHANG HJ and HIDE not too far behind. Obviously, accurate shooting (for birds, eagles, KPs) earns fabulous points even when not winning the day’s jackpot.

SKINS AND KP – INCREDIBLE STATISTICS

It is quite unbelievable and daunting to determine the winners of this competition which is based upon winning with a par and a maximum of three holes carryover. Simon, our new Handicap Lieutenant did a fairly good job reconciling the total skins won. It was especially difficult today because of the number of birdies made. Expect an “audited” version of the tabulations.

Sonny and Joe opted out of the skins game. (With Joe’s two birdies, the damage could have been more expensive.

NEXT TOURNAMENT – THURSDAY AT KINGS LINKS

With the pleasant reputation and goodwill we have established with golf courses, we are rewarded with guaranteed tee times at fabulous rates. DON’T MISS ATTENDING NEXT WEEK!
