In the heat of the afternoon, 90 men and women showed up for the annual Lady Putters Battle of the Sexes competition. And a battle it was with the men being the victors—again! The men’s composite score was 1794 and the ladies 1879.
The most challenging hole was a fun hole using a child’s plastic golf club and plastic ball. While no one got a hole-in-one for that one, 59 putters scored a hole-in-one during the event and each received $2 total whether it was for one hole-in-one or several.
With a combined score of 232, Diane and Brian Dodd, Mary and Charlie Anderson and Lynda and Ron Pilcher were on the 1st Place team. Each received $10. The 2nd Place team, Patty and Jim Hall, Glenda and Jay Lucas and Marcia and Rick Sutton each won $5 each for their score of 234. Marty Wibbenhorst had the low score for men with a 32 and for the women, Julie Daines had a 36. They each won $10 for their achievement.
Everyone enjoyed snacks with their drinks following the putting event. Twenty lucky door prize winners took home bottles of wine or other gifts carefully wrapped by the Event Committee Janet Wegner, Jill Wibbenhorst, Barb Hunsinger, Sharon Schoen, Kathy Guy, Linda Weissman and Joyce Walton.
This annual event always chooses a charity to be the recipient of the 50-50 raffle. This year the newly opened PTSD Unit at the Tucson VA Hospital will be getting $175 which will be used to buy crafts items and soothing music CDs. Putter Diane Gordon won the other $175.
