He hit a pitching wedge on

group and pulled his shot a little to the right of
the green. We saw it roll up the mound on
the right. Everyone else was on the green
with their shots.

Rutherford asks if anybody looked in the

Charles Messer's tale of his
I was playing in
the two-man scramble tournament with Mike
Matthieu, Rowland Hill, and John Meyer. The
13th was playing to Pin Position #2, back right
into about 5 mph of wind. Rowland had the
honor and hit 5-iron to about 20 feet, left and
slightly short. John then hit a solid
6-iron, high with a soft draw that landed over the
crest, 12-14 feet right of the pin. We
expected his ball to kick towards the pin. I
then hit a solid 5-iron, high and straight, that
landed over the crest on a line that was about two
feet right of the pin. Mike hit his ball
pin-high, about 35 feet left. Only two balls
were visible from the tee.
John and Mike
were in carts, and Rowland and I were
walking. As John drove up to the green he
turned and shouted, "There's only one ball on the
green!" We were all on the green but we knew
what he meant, that only one ball was visible on
the back-right part of the green. He then
looked behind the green and shouted, "There's only
one ball up here. You might have made a
John then waited
on the fringe until we all arrived. There
was a ball about 5 feet right of the pin, and
together we walked to the pin. At the bottom
of the cup was a Titleist 3 that was marked with a
purple dot. My golf ball. I began
shouting, "One! One! I made a hole in
I found a fresh 1/2-inch deep pitch mark that was
on my line and about a foot short of the green, on
a slight down-slope. He said, "Your ball
probably went in center-cut."
On any normal
golf day, John's birdie would have been excellent
golf. But yesterday it seemed
anti-climatic. And I couldn't resist saying
on the next tee, "You guys made birdie and lost

Our Men's Club Treasurer, Pat Krull, used
his Pitching Wedge from the White Tees at
120 yards as witnessed by Brian Rank. This
is Pat's first ace in 20 years of golf.
Only problem is, Pat did it when no one
else was around to pick his wallet clean
at the bar ...
