There was a tie for low net between Lynne Fridfinnson and Kathy White with a 73.

In the ball sweep Fridfinnson won closest to the pin on No. 6 and Shirley Goodman won on No. 11. Shirley Goodman won the special prize.

B-Jay Harper had a chip-in on No. 18, Cross had birdies on No. 5 and 16.

Even if you never win a tourney, golf will challenge you, and give you a chance to test yourself. Take the ability you have, do your best, and you’ll be happy.
