Pitch ‘n Putt: Ladies don’t lack at hack and whack

If Pitch N Putt columnist Joan Thompson doesn't know about it then it hasn't happened yet.

This title doesn’t sound very dignified for the game of golf, but that was the name of the game for Tuesday.

You come up with two separate nine hole scores by scrambling the numbers according to the instructions.

The best “whacker” we had was Patsy Gauthier who whacked up a score of 37.

Joan Thompson tied that with another 37.  In a class by herself with a “hacking”  good score was Olga Kanigan.  The low gross scorer was Carol Bouchard with a 94, and whose game was good enough to take the low net placing as well.

Thompson managed to sneak in a tie for that position as well.

The match play wound down today and the winners are:  A Division: First place winner is Anna Marie Krikke.  Marie Randal is second and came in close on her heels.  B Division finds Janice Cross in first place with Leona Fowler in second place.

Next week the Nine-Hole Division ladies and the 18-Hole Division ladies will join forces for a “whacking” good time and will play nine holes together followed by coffee and muffins.

Start time is 8:30 a.m. shotgun.

The year-end luncheon and awards are closing in on us and will be held on Oct. 9 starting at 12 noon.

There will be a list circulating soon, so make sure your name is on it and you’re included.

Nine-Hole Division

A-Divison:  LaDonna Knutson had the Low Gross honours as well as having the fewest putts in this Division.  Kathy Toms came in with the low net.

B Division:

Louise Berlinski came in with the low gross placing.  Lorraine Wilson had the low net.  Lesley Anderson had the fewest putts to take the pot.

Kathy Toms had a stellar game and chipped one in on No. 12, then went on to par No. 17.

Number 17 seemed to be a popular hole today as Katy Lekich and Nancy Clayton also parred it.  Berlinski parred No. 13.

Speaking of great “hacking”, Marta Williamson earned “best overall gross score”, “lowest putts”, “chip-in”, and “birdie”.  That’s a pretty impressive game which took place at Arrowsmith for their Interclub.  LaDonna Knutson assisted in the winning team score.

The nine hole Division is winding down quickly and will have it’s last leaque game on Oct. 2.

A reminder to all divisions about the closing luncheon on Oct. 9…and we can close out this “whack and hack” season with style.
