Driving Rain, Driving Faux-Pas, and a Streckfus

Daylight was waning as we teed off and later that night the weather service was calling for the start of a week of rain. Arriving just before tee time, Commish starts it off with a jack O.B. left almost to

What If The Snowman Was No More?

Imagine a golfing world that didn’t have The Snowman in it? What if all of those opportunities to laugh and mock the futility of others in your foursome disappeared and suddenly you became the recipient of the scrutiny usually reserved

As the Days Dwindle Down to a Precious Few…

September’s first round has been posted in the books, and, depending on weather and daylight, there remains only 6 or maybe 7 rounds left this season. With this in mind, here are a few of the highlights (low-lights?) of the

The Snowman doth cometh once again

Arise my friend and breathe once again. The Snowman doth cometh once again. It’s alive!!! After Frosty’s most excellent round of even par 36 (that is, after subtracting his 9-hole handicap of 20), he once again has a pulse as

April 20…Bad Things Happen From the Fairway

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

Opening Day, March 30, 2016

Finally the day had arrived. Dusting off our sticks and swings after a long winter of un-use, the BGA arrived at the appointed time to start the new season. The wind was up and the temperature was down; however, “the

Rd #11, June 3, Where Art Thou O Snowman?

Another week of steady rain, the first June days in 6 years with high temps below 65, and The Snowman fails to post, again. The scuttlebutt around the BGA Central Office is that he is trying to sit on his

Rd #5, April 22 and Babe Ruth Returns

For the first time this year, the weather looked fine. At 2:00 it was almost 70 and sunny; but, tee time was not until 5:34 and by the time it came around the wind had felled trees in the area,
