|Old Men Rounding Third and Sliding Toward Home|
This article is about the Park Board golf outing on June 12, 2013. (My apology for the mixed metaphor.) But if this piece is to make much sense, I need to explain a couple of things about golf in Pendleton County. First, persons with handicaps get no sympathy from those who are well and healthy and strong. Those who are one-legged, crippled, half-blind, recovering from by-pass surgery, or walking with a cane, are expected to compete with teams who have young bucks who can hit the golf ball over 300 yards, persons like Eric Conrad or Joe Jones. I had called John Steele who runs this event and suggested that my team should be allowed to hit from the women’s tees; and I was serious! I finally hanged up….. he wouldn’t stop laughing!
