Cantiague Park Senior Men's Golf League
We almost did not play today; it was very foggy, cloudy and misty with a few drops or rain. Forty-seven men showed up and the weather held out so we started the tournament. It did not rain and the weather got better as the morning went on. The sun was shining when we finished. The scores today were much better than last tournament. We had 22 men on or below par (net score). There were 55 pars and 2 birdies. Several men had 3 pars and Lou Rezoagli and John Wherling had 4 pars each. Ed Junginger had a birdie on the par 4, 257-yard, 5th hole and John Geier had the other one on the par 3, 150-yard, 3rd hole.
