Blind man’s duff in Alberni

Blind golf?  That’s right, Blind Golf..the format for today’s ball sweep.

Each golfer draws a number out of a hat before the game, then their score is paired with the person whose number they drew.  Patsy Gauthier drew the right number to be paired with Ilona McLeod to take the Low Gross position.

Marie Randal also chose wisely and ended up pairing her score with Janice Cross which placed them in position to take the low net.  A new and different slant on an old game.

Low gross for today’s scoring was captured by Ilona McLeod with her score of 90.  Her net score of 74 also came in ahead of the pack.  Ann Brooks came in with the second low net carding a 76.

Ilona was also the holder of the challenge pin from last week and her scores for today let her keep the pin against challenger, Teresa Cutting.  Watch out, Ilona…B.Jay Harper is playing for it next week.

B.C. Senior Games qualifiers for Alberni are Shirley and Bill Goodman; Carol and Frank Hastings; Patsy and Keith Gauthier; Barb and Frank Sheare.

The final games will be held on Aug. 17-18 at Birch Bank Golf Course in Trail, B.C. and at the Castlegar Golf Course.
