LORNE LAZENBY SENIOR MEN’S GOLF NEWS LADIES’ GOLF NEWS
The last of the regular Senior Golf action took place this week at Southampton Golf and Country Club. The season will wind up next week with a Texas scramble format tournament for all seniors in the league. This week, the weather was kind of crummy, as it rained on and off all day and many senior men chose to stay home rather than take a chance on the weather. However, there were some brave souls who did go out and weather the weather, although the scores weren’t very pretty. In the A-flight, Mike Henrich had the best round of the day, playing on the tough back nine. Henrich scored a five over par 42 to win First Low Gross in the flight.Derek Johnston and Jim Angel tied for Second Low Gross with scores of 45. Lou Bezaire and John Campbell tied for First Low Net with net scores of two over par 39. Regan Gascon sank the Longest Putt on the hole #12 and John Campbell was Closest to the pin on the thirteenth hole. In final Southampton Cup action, Jim Angel capped off a great year with 245 points after his net score of 41. His overall point total is 3,480 and Jim is the Southampton Cup Champion for 2023.Moving into second place with 285 points for his net score of 39 is John Campbell. John’s total point score is 3,210. Mike Henrich moved into third spot with his 300 points this week for his net score of 34. Mike’s total points is 3,195. The Southampton Ladies have a lot of fun during their Wednesday golf days. There is always some serious aspects to their competitions, but mixed in are some fun parts to the game. For example, the Ladies played the Honest Jane game last week. In this game, each player estimates their total putting score before starting on the back nine holes and when the round is complete, they record their actual putting score for the nine holes.Six golfers were either right on their estimate or within one stroke of their guess for the number of putts used. Congratulations to Georgina Bradley, Vicki Colontino, Melanie Martin, Erica Page, Barb Thomson and Sarah Wright. In other competitions that took place during the day, Roma Rolfe and Melanie Martin tied for the Lowest Putting Score on the sixteenth hole. Ruth Miller had the highest putting score on the same hole. Cindy Switzer sunk the Longest Putt on hole #10 while Melanie Martin won the Chip and Putt Closest to the Pin competition on the fourteenth hole. Cindy Switzer also carded a birdie on the tenth hole.
