2C Wednesday, June 3, 2015 Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter GOLF RESULTS 2 Bailey Creek Women's Golf Club May 6 was the opening day of the Bailey Creek Women's Golf Club. It began with a gray, cloudy sky, but all players were happy to see the start of another season. The game of the day was "low gross" with Ginger Birchfield placing first, with a birdie on the eighth hole, and Diana Pallari in second place. May 13 was a game of "Blind Nine," with players wishing they could have picked their own nine to discard, but with two lucky winners -- in first place Wynetta Regli and Ginger Birchfield placing second. A fun day for all. May 20 again started cloudy but, thankfully, the thunderstorms held off until the end of play. The game of the day was "IF," allowing each player to discard her worst hole. This week we had hole No. 8 as closest to the pin, won by Mo Clark, with Wynetta Regli placing first and Diana Pallari in second. * Graeagle Men's Club Mother Nature has blessed us with some cool showery weather recently. On Friday members showed up, read the tea leaves and canceled play. On Monday, a handful showed up and played as opposed to a normal group of 25 - 30, but no game was organized. By Wednesday, the weather, though still cloudy and cool, looked less threatening. Eleven players teed it up to see who could score the lowest individual net score. Jack Cornish came out on top with a 64 followed by George Fraser and Norm Nichols with a pair of 66s. Skins were won by Jac Castleton, Norm Miller and Randy Peterson. On Tuesday, May 19, th6 Graeagle Travel Team traveled to Reno for its second match with the team from Washoe Golf Course. After drubbing Washoe in Graeagle the week before the Washoe Team avenged that loss with a drubbing of their own, coming out on top 31-14. As thunderstorms .,, .... continued to blossom day . after day, golfers, for th e most part, stayed under cover. Ten Bandits took their chances Friday, May 22, and made it through 16 holes before the rain came. There was no lightning with this storm so the rain gear came out and the team of Dick Eck and Mr. Feider took first best ball low net with a 64. One stroke back with 65 was the team of Jim Reynolds and Mike Irving, while Tom Taylor and Jerry Toenyes were third with 67. After over two weeks of storms, the sun came out May 27 and, with temperatures in the 70s, 23 Graeagle members enjoyed a beautiful day of golf. The most enjoyment was had by the team of Randy Peterson and Mary Pierce as they lit it up with a best 5all low net score of 57. A nice pair of 61s, usually good for a win, was posted by the team of Ken Stevenson and Bryan Hansen and the team of Bill Kennedy and Dennis Chegwin. Two skins were won by Jack Gilbert and one each was earned by Bryan Hansen, Ken Stevenson, Norm Miller, Joel Patterson, Bill Kennedy and Ron Eaton. Plumas Pines Men's Club On Thursday, May 22, golfers braved the threatening skies and teamed up in a game of four-man 1, 2, 3 net balls. Each player in this played his own ball and the four-man team counted one net ball on the first hole, two net balls on the second hole and three net balls on the third hole. Then it started over with one ball on the fourth hole etc. It's a challenging game when you consider three balls counted on holes number 3, 6, 9, 12, 15 and 18. Par is 144 in this format but every team blew that away. The winners are: first 114 Erv Hadenfeldt, Brad Clark, Byron Hadley and Mike Wilson; second 120 John Kidwell, Terry Bergstrand, Randy McDonald, and Michael Peters; third 125 Kim Roberts, Doyle Blaylock, Ernie Givani and Sam Williams. Low Gross honors for the day go to Erv Hadenfeldt with an outstanding 73 including two birdies and an eagle on hole 13. The PlumasPines Travel Team made our annual journey to Susanville to play the Men's Club of Diamond Mountain GC. Their home field advantage helped the hosts to a 24.5 - 20.5 victory. Fortunately, our play at home last week (33-12) led us to a victory in the season series. Next month we take on our cross-town rivals Graeagle Meadows. Whitehawk Ladies On a sunny day with lots of white puffy clouds in the sky the ladies played Four Score -- the combined net score of all four players on the par fours counted for the game score. It was quite a day. There were four chip-ins, but only two members paid their money. Congrats to Michelle Violet (a new member who comes to us from Nakoma Golf Course where she was the club champion) and Chris Hyatt. With a score of 178, the winning team was Michelle Violet, Chris Hyatt, Virginia Luhring and Arline Simpson.

The final round was followed by a festive awards luncheon at Plumas Pine's Longboards Restaurant. While the weather was worrisome for the first two rounds (players got a little damp), it was perfect for the f'mal round. In the Three Club Eclectic Tournament; each player may improve her first round gross and/or net score on each hole if she achieves a lower score on that hole in the second or third round, so there were some very low scores.

Most notable was a hole-in-one scored by Margie Joseph on number 17 who also by virtue of the hole-in-one, got closest to the pin and won the chip-in as well. Margie is a super star!

Photo by Greg Knight TONIO, from page lC -- and a set of 40 repetitive crawls forward and backward across the field while tossing a 50-pound sandbag. He does all of that in addition to his regular training that includes push-ups, sit-ups, squats, running, weightlifting and cardio. "When I got into the off-season, I realized I wasn't as in good shape as I needed to be, so I started this regimen with Janine and it has paid off," Burton said. Another factor he said he has taken into account for the coming season is his diet, which he said wasn't always the best during the 2014 season. "It used to be junk or fast food for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and that was something that just wasn't going to work this season," Burton said. "My girlfriend has been a big help to getting me on a clean diet and now it's lots of salmon, asparagus, salad, fruit, no major carbs and a lot of red meat that is rare or medium-rare so all the protein stays in it." With all of this in mind, Burton said he is ready for two-a-days, which are set to begin in August -- and will be more than ready for the Golden Eagles' home opener Sept. 5 against Diablo Valley College. "We're a different team this year, under coach Scott Brade," Burton added. "Last season we were a team that was fighting each other and arguing instead of fighting other teams on the field and raising each other up, so this season I plan on bringing along all the other players and trying to do positive things in the Community, in addition to winning on the field."
