After Lunch Bunch

Thanksgiving took its toll on last week’s ALB game.  No doubt it was a case of too much turkey. The end result was a small field of 16 players in the game of Two Best Balls of the Foursome. The results are as follows:

1st place: Bob Stinson, Nick Valencia, Chuck Hudson and Sven Henrichsen, 121.

2nd place: Bob Tallaksen, Oscar Rowland, Ross Hanover and Jim Paulis, 124.

Ten of the 16 golfers entered the Skins contest. There were seven winning holes: Joe Washle on hole 12, Nick Valencia on holes 7, 9 and 18, Clive Taylor on hole 6 and Bob Tallaksen on holes 10 and 14.

Closest to the Pin prizes were awarded to Dave Nickel on hole 8 and Sven Henrichsen on hole 15.

Next Friday’s game will be Partners Best Ball. Players may pick their own partner and their foursome.
