The Lady Putters putt throughout the year, but this summer’s higher than average temperatures presented a bit of a challenge. Solution? They started putting at 8:00 a.m. on days when there were excessive heat warnings. Many gathered one morning to putt when the heavens opened up and soaked the putting green in a matter of minutes. That, unfortunately, cancelled putting for the day.
After a hot morning of putting on Aug. 14, the ladies gathered for their awards brunch and were cooled by a refreshing salad loaded with seasonal berries. A decadent chocolate mousse pie followed for dessert. Many commented that it was their favorite meal of the year.
Award winners included Betsy Martin with a low net score of 31.03 and Cathy Thiele with a low gross score of 34.67. Janet Wegner scored 13 holes-in-one during the period. Money hole winners included Cathy Thiele, Linda Weissman, and Yoshie Hennessy. The money hole is considered the most difficult, and each lady who succeeds in getting a hole-in-one wins $5. Some weeks, no one wins the $5.
Recognized for getting five or more holes-in-one during a single putting session were Alma Cavaletto with seven and Ellen Entwistle with six. Getting five holes-in-one on two different days was Janet Wegner. Betsy Martin, Lee Schmidt, Cathy Thiele, Frieda Hyles, Kimberly Nichols, and Marilyn Findley each scored five in one session.
Maureen Schwitter got a score under 40 for the first time since she joined the Putters.
Each lady attending the luncheon who had putted at least three times was presented a $5.35 gift card.
