There is a new Champion for 2013 and here he is:
It was very close again this year with about 6 golfers one shot back but Randy came through with a Callaway System 71. Another year has now gone by without a female Champion. What is wrong with the women?
Pat and Doreen were missed from the Originals as was past champion Steve. Of course a lot would say that they saw Pat playing and as photos don't lie maybe he was there. Check these out:
As you can see from the photos it was a cool and sunny day and there was a bit of rain for about a hole but I didn't get wet a bit as I was watching the golf on TV, drinking rum as I couldn't play because of my recent gall bladder surgery. I am sure I could have won it this year.
The day before saw the Father and Son nine hole tournament. We were all around watching them tee off which made them nervous. Check out the teams.
On a sad note, because Pat and I didn't play this year, an Original did not win the low gross (best score). Pat and I were very concerned about this as we gave the torch to Leo and George to keep the tradition going. Alas they let us down. Tim was the winner with a great score of 81.
After golf we all gathered at the putting green to see who was going to be the Egan Putt Champ this year. We ran it a bit different this year. We picked a spot 8 feet from one hole and each golfer got three balls to putt. The winner was the one that made the most putts. There was a Junior and Senior putt off. The Juniors started first and it was a close match. Liam was the reigning Champion but was no match for his sister Alex who got two balls in compared to one ball for Liam. Allison, Adam and Ty were shut out. The Senior division saw 20 golfers taking a chance and it was a tie at the end of the first round. Steve and Karen both put 3 balls in. A second round was played and Steve ended up the Senior Egan Putt Champion.
Liam had to give his younger sister the trophy at the banquet. He didn't say much but Alex gave a brilliant speech:
I am happy to say that no one was run over this year by a golf cart and no one ended up in the hospital. There are many more stories to tell but I just can't remember them.
Here are the teams this year.
Thanks Leo and Shawn for putting on a great 2013 Egan Cup.
First Egan Cup Champ
