Our Club Championship tournament started on Thursday. It's a 3-day tournament. Clouds kept the temps down, and it was a very pleasant day to play golf. My game was mediocre but two rather unusual and interesting events occurred.
#1 One of the gals in my foursome (Clare Shaffer, our club president) made a hole-in-one on #17 - a 172 yard par 3 hole. It was her first hole-in-one! We knew it was a very good drive, but didn't realize it went into the hole until we walked up and could not spot it on the green and peeked into the hole!
#2 The 1st day leader, Helen Bourquin, shot an 85. An impressive score, made more special by the fact that Helen is 85 years young! I don't know how often that happens, but I don't think it occurs very often!
Congratulations to both Clare and Helen!
