PRES CUP 4TH RND PAIRINGS
I’ve probably got everyone used to seeing our tournament results by the evening on the days that we play. Unfortunately I didn’t get these results until 10:30AM today, but here they are. I really like the Elkin’s Ranch course for the way it looks, but you have to watch out for those birds in the outdoor patio area by the snack bar. When Phil Youker, who was sitting at a table eating his hamburger, momentarily looked away, a bird proceeded to peck at the burger even though he was holding it in his hand. Those birds are pretty brave.
This is Ron Laufer avoiding a water hazard on hole #3 on his way to becoming the top golfer of the tournament with the best gross score of 87.
This is the foursome of (L-R) Bob Cole, Phil Youker, Ron Laufer and me posing for a photo at hole #17.
The top golfer of our Elkins away tournament was Ron Laufer with the best gross score of 87. He also tied for the best net score of 68 with John Gonzales. Way to go guys.

Golf is won or lost one stroke at a time; much like peeling an onion one layer at a time, and sometimes you weep. (Inspired by Carl Sandburg and his quotation on why life is like an onion).
Greetings from downtown Vernal, UT. I just got back from my granddaughter’s high school graduation in Denver, CO. It was slow going on highway 40 coming back because of all the deer that were hanging around near the roadway. I’d like to share a couple of pics with you. On the shot of the deer, I grabbed my camera as I was driving but I didn’t have time to increase the shutter speed, so it’s a bit blurry. The second pic is of highway 40 taken yesterday en route to Denver (click to enlarge).
Todays top golfers were Richard Guzik with a gross score of 76 and Larry McCollum with a net score of 58. Way to go guys. Also, if you scroll down to the next post, you can view a lot of the great photos taken by Dick Kohnmann at our golf barbecue held at Mountain View Golf course.
Here’s the correct results for the 19th. I had some computer problems and when I finally got it working, the 19th results were gone form my files and I inadvertently clicked on the most recent results displayed, which turned out to be from the 12th. My apologies to all.

The next club luncheon is scheduled for July 21st. If you’ve signed up to play Elkins on the 23rd of this month, the last day to pay Ron Laufer is next Thursday.
Every so often, while playing in our tournaments on Thursdays, someone will bring up the subject of politics. I get enough politics from the news and from Facebook, especially during this emotionally- charged election year. I don’t know how all of you feel about this, but I’d rather just play golf and leave the politics off the course, especially when the topics deal with race or religion.
Today’s top golfers were Earl Clark with the best gross score of 85. The best net score was posted by

Don’t forget about the barbecue tomorrow. Lots of good food and good music, with the music being provided by two of our own club members. Hopefully they can play their instruments better than they play golf. Remember, the more beer you drink, the better the music will sound. Also, don’t be alarmed it you hear coyotes howling from South Mountain. It’s a normal reaction once the duo starts to sing. Regarding the President’s Cup tournament, last call for sign-ups for the qualifying first round will be Thursday right before the start of the round. Even if you don’t want to compete in the President’s Cup, you can still play in the regular tournament to be held at the same time.
The top golfers of today’s scramble tournament was the team of Mulville, Reeves, Soriano and Allison. They had a gross score of 64 and a net score of 52. Way to go guys.

For those of you coming to our club barbecue on the 29th of this month at Mountain View, if you have any golf items, new or used, that you wouldn’t mind parting with, we could use some for the raffle. Please no fruitcakes. We could also use some dessert goodies such as cakes, pies or cookies. You don’t need to bring a large batch for everyone; just one pie or one bag of cookies will work. Also try to bring your wives or girlfriends because we’re going to have some live entertainment that includes some nice romantic tunes.
The top golfers of this week’s tournament were Richard Guzik with a gross score of 77 and Jack Fenelon with a net score of 59.
