Ironwood Lady Niners “Beat the Pro” results


Jack Hill, Bill Swed, and Del Schutes

Ken Kappes/Bob Greene Well, here it is May, the threshold of

the “warm” days of summer. Many of the snowbirds have closed up their nest and headed for cooler climes. That means there are fewer golfers on the courses and earlier and more convenient tee times available. Over the past several months MOGA

has had some great tournaments, not only on MOGA courses but with other clubs at their venues. The feedback from members is that they enjoyed the games and the new friendships that have developed and they look forward to September/October when the new golf year begins. Some are even aspiring to improve their handicap in the meantime. The MOGA Club Championship was

played on March 14, 21 and 28. There were 76 players divided into six fl ights composed of three regular fl ights (not in older categories), three senior fl ights (70- 79 years old) and one super senior (80-84 years). Yes, there is a super-super senior category (85 plus) but there were no entries this year.

The New MOGA Club Champion is Bill Swed. He shot 73-71-69 (213)


three rounds on separate days. Yes, you have heard that name before. This was Bill’s ninth time to win the Championship. Incredible! He’s not only a good golfer, he

has a fi ne personality to match. The second place winner was Jack Hill, a new MOGA member, with 75-73-74 (222) and third place went to Del Schutes with 73-77-80 (230). Congratulations to the place winners and to all that participated in the tournament. A special acknowledgement and

congratulations are in order for Mr. Dan Manucci who shot an 80 on one of his rounds and that was one stroke lower than his age! In golf parlance: “that is a super round of golf to shoot a score lower than your age.” On March 28, MOGA elected new

offi cers. Howie Weiss was reelected as president, TJ Jones was elected vice president, Jim Hooyman was reelected as treasurer and Myron Urban was elected as secretary.

The members of MOGA would like to

publically extend our congratulations to the new Board of Offi cers and express our sincere appreciation to all of the previous board members and committee members for all the time and effort they put in to making MOGA a success every Thursday of the year! Please be sure to visit www.mogagolf.

effect which provides for free relief from intervention by immovable obstructions (e.g. sprinkler heads, drain grates, valve box covers, etc.) within two (2) club lengths of the putting green when the ball lies off the green, but not in a hazard and is within two (2) club lengths of the obstruction. That means one (1) club length relief, no nearer the hole. The type of club to be used has no bearing on the Rule. 
