Golfing ‘Wisdom’ of the Day
‘If you’re caught on a golf course during a storm and are afraid of lightning, hold up a 1-iron. Not even God can hit a 1-iron.’ – Lee Trevino
The day , the play –
Friday March 24 dawned sunny and windless and basically perfect for golf at Jagorawi. The iconic 45-hole layout beckoned the Sharks who got in well under the newly published rate. Even the parking lot made us smile – 10% full at most.
The course got us off a few minutes early with a mini-shotgun start on hole #1. Everyone finished in less than four hours.
Although the turnout was down a quarter from the previous week, competition was sharp and focused. Pras won low net without his A-game but gave himself a healthy number of birdie and par looks.
His approach game was sterling but he had to watch in despair as one putt after another slipped by. Marvin, who will hopefully join more JAWS games, employed triangulation (a.k.a Army golf) to position his drives down the fairways. He wasn’t entirely effective but still came within a stroke of second place.
Tom kept up over 12 holes but then .. well, picture a vehicle that lost all four wheels.
Congratulations to the Winners:
Winner – Pras S
Second – Marvin
