NIMAGA NOTES 

 

TOURNAMENT OF WINNERS 

The entry blanks are being mailed this week for the annual Tournament of Winners Event.  The defending low gross champion is Reggie Huff and the low net champion is Scott Windisch.  The event is August 18th and 19th at the Sheperd’s Crook Golf Club in Zion, IL.  The last chance to qualify for this event is the August Two Day Championship.  We will try to have a Tournament of Winners Trophy at the August 4th sites so everyone can see how nice the trophies are!

HOLE-IN-ONE 

Alan Johnson a NIMAGA member since 1966 scored his first hole in one at the NIMAGA Midweek event at Ruffled Feathers.  After fifty years of golf he aced the 11th hole 120 yards to an island type green with an 8 iron.  There are a few lessons however to be learned from this ace.  In the shotgun start Alan scored an 11 on his first hole played.  He then scored his ace so “never give up”!.  At most NIMAGA events there is a “skingame” and Alan failed to get in so don’t be cheap, get in the skingame, we all can get lucky at any given moment. 

HOUSTON WE ‘HAD’ A PROBLEM 

Due to mail problems over 30 players were not on the July tee sheet.  Everyone who called was put into the tournament so the lesson is to be sure your entry is on the tee sheet and if there is a problem call Roger Scott at 630-483-4320.
