Other stuff: Jim Hardin had three 9’s and a 10 today but it was his 15 on hole # 15 that ties the high hole of the year, how did he do it? He doesn’t want to talk about it, he rather talk about his closest to the pin win on # 9 (3’ 8”) which he made birdie and wins a net skin (Happy to Kill Mansfield’s chance for a gross skin) Jim Hardin also got a net skin on the tough 200 yard par 3 hole # 16 and now leads everyone in the club with 14 net skin wins on the year. Bill Vanettes and Javier Chavez win the other 2 closest to the pin awards. Clinton Cox, who is nursing a bad back, managed to drain a 23’ 10” par putt to win his first long putt of the year on hole # 8. Ed Flores wins a gross skin for his long birdie putt on # 11.
