Twin Hills Recap ...
On the infamous #5, Pat Apton hit her ball which went into the water, hit a rock and ended up in the drop zone (how convenient - the rest of us weren't that lucky) Lisa Valbergs chipped in 40 yards for par on #7 and broke 100 for the first time this year. She was thrilled! Again, on the infamous #5, Tiffany Bloom hit tee shot almost into the water on the back side of the hole, didn't do so well on her second shot but then chipped in for par. I would love to hear about all that really happened on the 5th that people were not willing to share. If any of you were wondering where Hansel and Gretel were because of the trail of popcorn on the course, it was just an unnoticed open bag of popcorn on Sheila Hanley and Deb Curtis' cart. Barb Goodness apparently was in and out of the woods several times on #7 and Elaine Pommerening chipped in on #17 for a Birdie; Sue Guinan chipped in on #3 for a Birdie and Nancy Miller chipped in on #9 (sorry, I didn't get if it was a birdie or par and my partner has the score cards). It was Kathy Gilman's day of missing by 3 inches. She missed the closest to the pin in the C flight by 3 inches and then missed birdie by 3 inches.
My question of the day was - How many people made it to the green only to have to chip on their next shot? There were too many yes's to count so I guess I wasn't the only one. It seemed like everyone did well that day based on scores: there were 101 pars and 8 birdies - Congratulations ladies and see you at the banquet!!!
