Bud Habel’s grandson, Stephen Price, passed the Texas Bar the first time and will be sworn in on November 17th in Austin. Stephen is almost a regular member of our group, having played with us for many years. We’re all proud for one of us to do so well.
Amoco Handicaps as of 10/15/2014
Sometimes we don’t always hear about the great shots that occur during a round and the Lake Windcrest outing was no different. However, Mr. Patrick Michael had an eagle "2" on the par 4 hole, no. 9, holing out a 135-yd 8-iron from the fairway. That pin placement on no. 9 was not all that convenient either. Also Mr. York birdied two par 3s with putts of 85-feet (no. 16) and 50-feet (no. 14). Mr. Michael and Mr. York bought lottery tickets that evening, but they has used up all their luck earlier in the day.
Another outing at Raveneaux, Hopefully the last truly scorching summer day, The weatherman is promising cooler weather ahead, The course was in great condition except the the heave construction equipment in the sand traps. Our turnout was good today.Six teams competed using a Shamble format all the way around. Scores ranged from 121 to 137. The winners were Patrick Michael, Dub Farmer, Don Jenkins, and Mike Schensted. Closest to the pin were Don Jenkins and Peter (the stick) Tomlinson.
Next week we have Lake Windcrest. Pray for cooler weather!
