Glen Murray led a parade of four golfers who beat the heat and each shot 2-over 38 to take low gross honours in men’s league play at the Niagara-on-the-Lake Golf Course last Thursday.

Murray was in some esteemed company as the other low shooters were men’s club champion James Grigjanis-Meusel, A flight champ Jim McMacken and Joe Doria, another former club champ.

Murray also tied for second with Jeff Jacques under the modified Stableford scoring system, with 22 points, one behind winner Randy Busbridge’s 23.

Bill Baitinger, Tom Goodbody, Johnson Hu, Ron Newman and Bill Smith were next with 21 points.

It really was Murray’s day on the links, though, as he also won money in both the skins games. His birdie on the second hole was worth a $20 gross skin and another bird on #8 won a $65 net skin and $20 gross skin.

John Kozik’s birdie on #1 also stood up, scooping both the gross and net skins. Paul Shelestowsky won a net skin on #8.

Other gross skin winners were: Larry Mantle (#3), Grigjanis-Meusel (#5 and #6) and Brodie Townley (#7).

Closest to the pin shooters were John Reynolds (#4) and Richard Cook (#9).

WOOFs League: Jim Meszaros shot a 38 to win low gross in Tuesday’s WOOFs league competition. Ron Newman had a low net score of 33. Doug McCulloch won the hidden hole (#8) and John Reynolds was closest to the pin – again – on #4. Ted Wiens won $41 in the 50/50 draw.

WOMEN’S RESULTS: Ginny Green and Susan Gagne shot 92 on Tuesday morning to share low gross in 18 hole women’s league play. Judy Mantle and Lisa Allen were next with 95.

Low net winners were: Marlene Sibbald (69), Gagne (72), Mantle (74) and Carolyn Porter (75).

Porter had a birdie on #2 while Margot Richardson had back-to-back birds on #3 and #4. Sally Miller was closest to the pin on #4.
