Don’t hold your breath on player challenging Woods’ dominance



Dick Nicoson hasn’t been acting his age. He recently shot a 74 at Lost Creek Golf Course that included nine-hole rounds of 36 and 38. Not bad for an 81-year-old when you consider he defeated his age by seven strokes.

Dick’s son, Randy, is a solid player as well. For the past several years he has worked on the grounds crew at Hulman Links.

Randy’s son, Zach, was an outstanding player for Terre Haute North before he entered Rose Hulman, where he graduated five years ago. Zach spent two seasons as a member of the Rose golf team. No doubt that three generations of the Nicosons have made their respective marks on Terre Haute’s golfing history.

More names of the exclusive club of Pickers and Choosers have been selected. They include: Whalen, Penman, Bach, James, Amies, Olah, Shouse, Kruzan, Bocard, Reynolds, Rohr, and Nevins with more to follow.

But hold everything! A serious charge has been lodged against one member of PCAI. That stands for Pickers and Choosers of America, Inc. More concerning this tragic situation next time.

The following are upcoming scheduled events for Rea Park and Hulman Links:

Rea Park

June 14-15 — Ladies Ringer; June 19 — Junior Classic; June 21 — Men’ s Senior Baseball Outing; June 22 — Marine Corps Outing; June 26 — Junior Scramble; June 27 — FSA Outing.

• Tip of the week — Many golfers do themselves an injustice by not arriving as the course in time to warm up properly.
