Hill players keep rouding the Bend


Thirty-four is a good number, some of the Over the Hill gang players just might remember when that was how old they were. Or maybe not, after all that age may seem mighty long ago to some of the more should-we-say “experienced” golfers in Thompson Falls’ friendliest golfing league.

Putting their chronological ages on this earth aside yet again, 34 of the as-young-as-you-feel Over the Hill duffers took another stab at River’s Bend this past Monday morning, and a good time was reportedly had by all.

Leading the gang out on the Bend, Dave Garr needed only 42 strokes to get around it for the low gross men’s score while Darrel “Torgy” Togrimson factored in his handicap to arrive at a 33 for best low net. Barb Wooden carded the women’s low net of 34.

In hole play, Garr made the long putt on No. 4 and was closest to the pin off the tee on No. 5, Dan Whittenburg knocked in the long putt on No. 2, Jens Jantzen made the long putts disappear on Nos. 3 and 9, Doug Deck smashed the long 70+ drive on No. 6, John Torres made good with the long putt on No. 6, Ted Sonju dropped in the long putt on No. 7, Jerry Neil put the long putt in the cup on No. 8, Rick Kendall ripped the long men’s drive on No. 9, and Wooden was golden with the long women’s drive on No. 9.

Chip-in shots were scored by Kendall and Mike Smith on No. 2, and by Charlie Hooten and Ron Beaty on No. 4.

Smith, Whittenburg and Russ Wood made off like touring pros, earning payments for pars made on No. 2.

Over the Hill players plan on returning to River’s Bend for another fine round of golfing fun next Monday morning if the bodies are willing and the course is playable.
