Thursday Night Men’s Twilight News

The September 21 edition of the Thursday Night Men’s Twilight was sponsored by Guy Saumure and Sons Construction. Company representative, Bob Mulrooney (aka “Easy Rider”), shared a huge prize table with the patrons on the last Thursday before the big finale on September 23, a day when I’ve been told Burns Jewelers diamonds will be falling from the sky. Yes, diamonds, I’m not kidding!

Speaking of gems, Graham Merpaw, Don Nesbitt, Jim Kennedy, Dave Laurence, and Billy Crawford sparkled and shone, posting the low scramble score on the front nine. Bob Bresee, Rico Dopson, Steven Blair, and Kenney Campbell also treasured their round, claiming victory on the back side.

The Roosteraunt closest to the pin prizes went to Art Rent and Greg Bowes for their tee shots on holes 3 and 8. Aaron Wallace and Murray Campbell took home the Burns Jewelers gift certificates for the best approach shots on holes 5 and 17, and the Town and Country Chrysler longest drives were launched by Bob Mulrooney and Rick Wiseman on holes 1 and 10.

The fabulous test of skill was performed by Ron Bernicky and Rob Dales. It’s amazing how big and bright “blue angels” can be with the aid of pure oxygen!

The Valley Custom Cutting gift certificate went to Rico Dopson, and this week’s Rocky’s Road Rash ball will be teed up by the “Bling Master” himself, Tom Burns. He’ll try for a hole in one to win the $15,000 Hunt and Dopson prize at the Closing. Good luck!

Last week’s Obsessed With Golf trivia question: Walter Hagen became the first native-born American to win the British Open in 1922. Not long after, he also became the first professional golfer to realize a bigger undertaking. What was it? Answer: C. Opening a golf equipment company under his own name.

I’ll be back next May with more Thursday Night Men’s Twilight news.

The Bogeyman.
