Texeira Scores Four Aces in Putting Tourney

Ima Putterpal

Twenty enthusiastic members appeared on July 25 to test their putting skills.

One of the many things that is great about this group is that you do not know who you will be playing with until you draw for partners. Obviously you make many new friends that way.

A total of 26 aces were scored that day. Bobsie Bostic, Lois Dahl, Esther Morales, Patti Lawrence and Dianne Riel each scored one ace.

Two aces were shot by Cathy Jones, Cherie Mayfield and Jan Larson. Three aces each were scored by Irmgard Boies, Joan Broomfield, Rose Frazier-Hart and Arlene Thelen.

The biggest win in aces that day was accomplished by Rita Texeira when she shot four!
