KINGS LINKS – Golf ala British Open

KITCHI IN FINE FORM

Joining us for the first time this golfing season, Kitchi makes a very firm statement – his golf has remained sharp! It is so sharp that he took first place and right away ranks 6th on the UPS STANDING.

He recorded a birdie on one of the toughest holes on the course – #17 and kept pace with the top two players, JOE and CHENG.

Meanwhile, “little” JOE’s nickname has now been changed to MIGHTY JOE, seeing how consistent his play has been. He snagged another birdie today at Kings Links on the tough par three #15 where the hole was tucked way up the back. Apparently, he drained the birdie from more than 25 feet.

CANADA DAY TOURNAMENT – RIVERWAY @ 8 AM

Be at Riverway at 7:30 am and CONFIRM early. Since it is a holiday, let us stay for lunch and kibitz a little!

UPS CHAMPIONSHIP LEADERBOARD

JOE has a big lead with 40.5 point on the UPS championship with his consistent play and birdie hunting prowess. He is also a sharpshooter on those KP holes. However, it is pretty early and everyone has a chance of catching up with him. A few wins, a few birdies, and some KPs, are all it takes. Look at Kitchi! One single day and he has already surpassed several regulars!

SOME RULES WITH GUESTS

Guests are welcome to join in the SKINS/KPs game. However, in fairness to regulars, it is suggested that guests are exempt from the day’s tournament unless they have an official handicap index. Also, in the UPS standing, points would still be awarded to the best three scores of regulars.

JUST A NOTE: NO NHL HOCKEY TRYOUTS HERE

On the 8th hole, usually amiable King Kong’s drive sailed diagonally east into thick fescue. In that direction at the middle of the fairway on the 7th hole, there was a “Nike” ball and our friend thought that he suddenly became the world’s greatest long drive champ, (since the distance from the tee to that ball is more than 350 yards). (Those of us with GPS have acquired a great perspective of distance.)

Seething with anger that his ball has been “stolen” by the group that are playing the par 5 7th hole, he proceeded to chop his way from within 150 yards and mercifully finished with a 9. Bobby Orr would have proud to have him on defense with the Boston Bruins!

That is not the end though. Before teeing off on the 9th, he pulls out another brand new ball and asked for a marker. He emblazoned his new ball with the big letter “H” (for hustle) to make sure no one ever steals his ball again. He addressed the ball. BOOM! Like a John Daly monster drive, it sails diagonally right again …. in the fescue! It is so thick out there that even the ghost of Payne Stewart won’t be able to grab that ball for a souvenir!

Of the brand new dozen balls he brought to the course, he says he must have less than a sleeve in his bag! FORE!!!!!!!!!!!!
