Hawaiian shirt day for 9-hole Gray Foxes

By Duncan Nixon

The Gray Foxes at the Lake Monticello golf course play a nine-hole competition every Friday morning. The eighteen-hole Gray Foxes play every Thursday morning. On June 24, the nine-hole competition was Captain’s Choice with three-man teams, with the stipulation that each player’s drive had to be used at least once. The fun twist was that it was Hawaiian shirt day. 

Every player who wore a Hawaiian shirt was allowed one mulligan over the back nine. A mulligan is a chance to take a second shot, it is definitely not in compliance with the rules of golf, but is very common in amateur competitions. In this competition, the mulligan could be used anywhere, on a drive, on a chip, or on a putt. All the players had a Hawaiian shirt, though a couple were borrowed, so all the players got a mulligan.

The winning team shot an impressive one under par 35. The team consisted of James Wilkin, Greg White and John Stenz. Two teams came in at 38, two over par. The tie was broken, as is often the case in tournaments, by comparing scores starting with the final hole and going backwards until one team’s score is better than the other team’s score. Using this formula the second place team was Jay Hinkle, Harold Morgan and Larry Wolfe. Third place went to the team of Ben Stoppe, Steve Christofferson and John Danna. T he top three teams all won store credits that can be used at the Lake Monticello pro shop. 

John Stenz is coordinating the nine-hole Gray Foxes this season. He is trying to keep it light and enjoyable, as evidenced by Hawaiian shirt day. On July 1, all the nine-hole players were invited to a luncheon cookout and possible swim at his house on the Lake.
