Long drive and other things

For the love of golf !

Tom loves golf. That is not an understatement ! He watches golf, putts in the living room, practices in the backyard and teaches our grandson golf when he is at our house. Tom loves to golf with his friends, mornings at Honeywell Golf Course. He will talk golf with any person who will listen. Golf fits his competitive personality for sports. Recently Tom participated in a Senior League competition. He did rather well. He tied for first place and hit the longest drive on hole 12. Below is a portion of the article from the Wabash Plain Dealer.

"Honeywell seniors, Etna ladies compete

In local golf action on Thursday, Dave Barrows, Tom Oldencamp, Dave Thornton and Webb Thrush shot a 5-under-par 30 to tie for first place in the Honeywell Senior League. Tom Mahan and Ross Trump were also tied.
Shooting a 4-under-par 31, and in third place, was Bill Kingery, Steve Anderson, Norm Bell and Jay Fennel.The longest drive competition which took place on No. 18 and was taken by Chuck Ravenscroft. Mahan had the longest drive on No. 12."
He also took part in the County Tournament on Saturday and Sunday this weekend (July 26-27). It is divided into two days, in which players play the Etna Acres course one day, and the Honeywell course the next. Tom came in second place after Jeff Bosler, a teacher at Southwood High School. I thought he did rather well for himself, considering he thought he didn't play to well at Etna Acres.
