Janice Nicklin shoots low gross at Comox Thursday Night Ladies golf

At 3:30 p.m. June 9 it was pouring rain but by 5:30 p.m. it was lovely.  Someone obviously pointed out to the rain maker that the Comox Thursday Night Ladies wanted to golf. And golf they did.

Unlike last week, there were many nine-hole scores in the 40s but Janice Nicklin managed to squeak out low gross with a 42. Our keen new golfer Gloria Grieve won low net with a smoking hot 29. (Gloria practices.  It might be something we should all think about).

The team with the lowest average number of putts went to Fran Robinson, Sue Leakey, Patty Koch and Marg Siddall.  Sue Leakey had a chip-in which helped lower that average. Gloria Grieve, who is often seen practising her putting, won putt for dough on #3 and Chris Flynn won on #8.

After the rain, the birdies were out. Lorelei Banford had a bird on #2 and Sue Leakey a bird on #6.  Other snip hole winners were Sue Leakey with a par on #9, Jan Dafoe with a par on #7, Marg Siddall with a par on #5 and Gloria Grieve with a par on #8 and #9.
