As every BGA’er knows, very few good things happen from the fairway. For instance, today Bill “Mr. FourSkin” Cockey managed to hit 2 fairways. On The Road Hole (#1 on the scorecard) he hit 235 yards down the middle and then proceeded to record a double bogey 7. After deftly avoiding the rest of the fairways, he came to the final hole, #9, the toughest on the course, 445 yards straight uphill. A not-so-prodigious drive of 205 yards left him with a long approach that didn’t go so well and, after 3 putts, he recorded his only “snowman” of the round, a quadruple bogey. Of course, the fact that he had hit the wrong fairway with his drive might have had a little something to do with it, too!
Knowing all of this, Ron “Commish” Swanson managed to avoid all of the fairways and, of course, recorded his best round of the young season (a 44, net 33 with 3 greens in regulation and 4 pars) and was rewarded with a FREE BEER compliments of Mr. FourSkin and his 50, net 41 (with 4 GIRs and 3 pars).
Rodger “Mr. Fifteen” Swanson played a steady round hitting 3 fairways, 2 GIRs and 2 pars and recorded a 46, net 36. This was good enough to tie Bill “The Snowman” Levering for a silver medal as he hit 4 fairways, managed to miss all 9 greens, and putted his way to 0 pars and scored a 56, net 36.
