Chip Shots

Roy Lawrence a member of Alta Sierra Country Club celebrated his birthday last Wednesday by playing on men’s day at his local club with his friends.

Roy is a good golfer and has been playing for many years. His smooth swing and consistent shots help him to maintain a handicap of 19.

Last November, he shot an 87 to match his age and was excited.

So, now that he is 88 what did he shoot?

Roy was playing with his friends Dick Harmon, Bill Hackett, and Bill Silbert – all of Alta Sierra – and they witnessed him shooting an 85.

This was his best round in years but, he says, now that he is getting older it makes it easier to shot his age.

Way to go Roy!
