Sat May 7th BB Skins @ Lincoln


On a drizzly wet day 20 Lincoln parkers traversed all 18 holes, and it seemed fun was had by all.   Thanks to Ian Cussen for scoring, and to Mike Han for running the Skins game.  And let's thanks Rick for graciously handling bursar duties.   

There were 8 skins parceled out, in the following manner:

1 skin to Ross/Jackson with a combined score of 7 on hole #10
1 skin to DeSilva/Cleary with a 2 on hole #11

A duel in the sun?  Murray/Thompson/DeSilva


had 30-30, whereas the 3 H's had 31-29.   Both 


teams eagled the 13th, and Mr Thompson chipped


in for a needed 2 at the difficult 17th (and nearly


holed several other pitches).   Ed Murray hit


numerous straight/long tee balls 


and made some key putts while the steady Naoto 


DeSilva carried professional grade play 


throughout.  Well done guys!   Mike, Sam , and 


myself had fabulous team energy; Mike made


several key putts throughout the day.  Sam made 


a 30ft bomb at the 6th, and knocked a fairway


wood to 6ft for eagle at the 13th from 173yds.


What a pleasure to play with both these fine 


gentlemen.  







Boundary Oaks, Nov 7th (2016 Zone Qualifier).

7. DeSilva 80 [3rd alternate]


8. Vitone 80 [4th alternate]


9. Lambert 82 [5th alternate]


10. Cussen 82 [6th alternate]



The greens were running 11 or 12 on the 


stimpmeter, and the hole locations were extremely


difficult.  All contestants had similar stories of


putting off greens, etc.  It was one of the most 


challenging courses we've seen in many years.


Special congrats go out to the 5 men who shot 


net-76 or better, Harrington,Park,Walker,


Jackson, and Carwin.  Good shooting guys!

And then there is this to consider . . .  Henry Ford on golf:

     Back in the United States, golf had grown in popularity in the years after World War I, and like many other corporate managers Ford Motor Company officials, including Reeves Blakely, who while in Belém negotiating the terms of the Tapajós concession could often be found shooting holes on a jungle range outside the city limits, had become avid players.  And the Dearborn Independent, reflecting Ford’s growing cultural conservatism, particularly his distrust of large, easily manipulated urban crowds, promoted golf as a substitute for baseball.  Ford’s paper criticized America’s pastime for concentrating “ten thousand people” in one place while giving them little to do other than sit in “cramped-up positions watching nine men handling a bat and a ball. . . . A large portion of our so-called sportsmen are mere shouters and noise makers, and have no more claim to be regarded as exponents of any particular game than the Roman mob which attended the gladiatorial contests in the arena.”  Golf, in contrast, got “people out of the crowded city to the pure air of the seaside or the country.”  It encouraged spectators to become participants themselves, not as part of a “team” but as individuals.  The paper urged municipalities throughout the country to build golf courses as a way of promoting civic virtue, since a “community playing golf in its leisure moments should have no time for less edifying pursuits.”  Golf develops “foresight and perseverance,” as the “golfer never looks backward; ‘Fore’ is his slogan, and his aim is to drive his ball clear of all traps and pitfalls.”  And so Ford workers on the Tapajós moved forward, laying out a nine-hole course adjacent to the American compound and the “nature park.”  Archie Weeks’s daughter, Leonor, dubbed the links the “Winding Brook Golf Course,” since it ran along an igarapé, or stream.
