Rub of the Green: Ringer Scores and Blind Bogies added to golf’s fun



At the conclusion of play, slips of paper bearing the numbers 70 through 80 were put in the hat and the number drawn out would signify the winning score. There might be more than one player on the lucky number and that would necessitate another drawing from among those who tied, or duplicate prizes could be awarded.

With a Blind Bogey each month, tournament sites were shuffled among courses at Terre Haute, Linton, Sullivan, Paris and Brazil. The personnel department at Quaker Maid was responsible for administering these immensely popular golf outings.

A tip of the hat to Zach Hosking for a superb 68 at West Chase Golf Club during the Brownsburg Invitational. Zach’s father, Gary, and uncle, Brian, were both excellent players on South’s golf team several years ago, but I can’t remember that either of them ever posted a 68.

We’d like to add our congratulations to Kyle Miller who recently has been named head golf professional at the prestigious Victoria National Golf Club in Newburgh, one of the finest venues in the U.S.

After playing for North’s Patriots for four seasons, Miller earned a degree in Professional Golf Management from Ferris State University. During the past three years, he has been the first assistant at Crooked Stick Golf Club.

Congrats again Kyle and best wishes on an outstanding career in professional golf.

TIP OF THE WEEK: If slicing is a problem, check to see that club shafts placed across the shoulders, hips, knees and toes are all parallel and point on a line that is parallel to your line of flight. If your shoulders point across the line from outside in, you are apt to hit the dreaded “banana ball.”
