Thursday Night Men’s Twilight News

The June 14 edition of the SFG&CC’s Thursday Night Men’s Twilight was almost a wash out, with the intermittent rain making the evening a bit challenging. But enough of the hardcore patrons showed up determined to play the front nine, so the scramble format was on and we braved the elements. It was either that or go home. Exactly.

Geoff Watson, Hugh Gillespie, Rick Thompson, and Mike Milks proved they aren’t made of sugar, posting the low score of the evening. Links golf is in their blood!

The Roosteraunt closest to the pin prize went to George Thomson for his tee shot on hole 3. Scott Devonshire won the Milano’s Pizza prize for hitting it close on hole 8. And the Valley Custom Cutting gift certificate went to Adam Schofield for his beauty on hole 9.

The Town and Country Chrysler longest drive of the evening belonged to Rod Parent. He took it deep on hole 5.

The fabulous test of skill was performed by Steve Blair and Mike Patti. Their duet of Singing In The Rain was simply amazing!

This week’s Rocky’s Road Rash ball went to Rick Murphy. He’ll try for a hole in one to win the $15,000 Hunt and Dopson prize at the Closing. Good luck!
