Carol Bouchard wields her favourite golf club

Carol Bouchard carded a low gross 90 on Tuesday, bringing her three-day Alberni Golf Club 18-hole Ladies Division total to 268 and vaulting her into the No. 1 position in the 18-Hole Division championship.

She was followed by defending champion Anna Marie Krikke, who shot an 88 on Tuesday to bring  her three-day total to 271.

Janice Cross was close behind, taking third position with a total of 277.  Congratulations, ladies!

Carol will go on to play in the Zone 6 “Champion of Champions” tournament next spring, representing Alberni Golf Club.  The tournament will be held at Sunnydale Golf Course in Courtenay.

The First low net position was captured by B-Jay Harper whose three-day net score total was 218.  Katy Cyr was breathing down her neck with a score of 219 to take second.

Teresa Cutting was only one point back to take third with a score of 220.

In the Senior Division it was again Carol Bouchard in first, Anna Marie Krikke in second and Kathy White in third.

Winning the Low Net in the Senior Division was B-Jay Harper, followed by Gayle Rhodes and Kathie Smith.

Low gross score for Tuesday was carded by Anna Marie Krikke, who shot an 88. Kathie Smith was right up there with the best of them, scoring a low net of 66—closely followed by Donna James with her personal best net score of 67.

The hotly contested Challenge Pin was nearly up for grabs but thanks to the expert scrambling of Pat Nicklin, she managed to hang onto it against challenger, B-Jay Harper.

The challenge came right down to the last hole: Pat hit a tree but her next shot brought her back into play.  She was on the green in four and made the putt. B-Jay missed her lengthly putt so the game ended in a tie.

There are no tie-breakers for the Challenge Pin so the pin goes to the original holder.

Pat Nicklin will be in for a tough game next week vs. Janice Cross.

Today’s scramble was a “Mixed-up Affair”. Each player was matched with a hidden team who played in the two-ball mixer on the weekend and her score was added up with their final scores of the two-day event.

Gayle Rhodes won flat out as her hidden partners were the Proteau team. Carol Hastings tied for the net score, matching her game today with the combined score of the Brauns. She shared a tie position with Carol Bouchard whose score was mixed in with the Giovetti team.

The Zone 6 tournament will be played at Pheasant Glen this Friday, an 8:30 a.m. shotgun start.

If you have any questions about where the car pool will meet, call Teresa Cutting for details.

Nine-hole division

A Division: No mixup here: Nancy Clayton clearly came out ahead, taking the low gross position.  Julie Swaney took the low net spot and also shared in the putting kitty, tied with Kathy Toms.

B Division: Trish Watson was in front with the low gross score. Jean Illman took low net and Trish Watson again had the lowest number of putts for the game.  They also each had a chip-in—Jean on hole No. 12 and Trish on hole No. 10.
