Jock Talk

Some golf being played and some golf being rained out!

The scheduled Glow Ball/Cross Country Scramble got cancelled this past Saturday evening because of weather and weather forecasts, but other events went on as scheduled and there are more coming up.


The Four Winds Men held a Fun Nigh Scramble this past week with 7 four man teams participating. The winning team won by score card playoff after two teams tied for the best score.

The champions were the team of Bill Hinton, Steve Pattison, Terry Lovesee, and Klent Schnell. The runner-up team was Tom O’Brien, Trevan Hinton, Roger Dohse, and Jacob Walker.

Third place went to Dillon Wise, Jim Zitec, Barry Frederick and Mike Winstrom, who also won by score card playoff over the team of Jared Zitec, Jeremy Williams, Henderson Bryson and John Fiehtner. Fifth place went to Chris Zitec, Bob Culek, Brett Belgum and Dennis Deboodt.
