Well, Lynn Smith and Virgina Luhring carried her to today to win first place. Coming in second was the team of Toni Dick (won chip-in money), Diane Romig and Ann Veruti. Next week we will celebrate the 4th of July playing the game of Red,White and Blue -- better known as flag day. LAWWGC It was only six days after the first day of summer, but it felt like winter again to the Lake Almanor West ladies on Thursday, June 26. Bundled up against the freezing cold day, the 18-hole grouP played for low net. Kathy Doms was first with a score of 69. She got a birdie on hole number 12. Kathi Shennan also had 69 but took second after the tie breaker. She had a chip-in on number 16. Khren Trattt took third place with a 71. Caroyln Wilhoit was the winner of the nine hole group.

Graeagle Meadows Opening helps with Welcome back to the 10th installment of the Pro's Corner. Today we are going to visit the beach. No, not that beach. This one is not a pleasant place to visit. The beach we are going to discuss today is the dreaded greenside bunker. Greenside bunkers can be deadly for a lot of amateur golfers. I am here today to tell you that bunkers are not that terrifying, though. Once a golfer learns the proper technique, bunkers can actually be a lot of fun. So, what is the proper technique for hitting a bunker shot? Well, for your everyday golf shot you attempt to setup with a square clubface, meaning the club is pointed at your target or target line. With a bunker shot, you need to open the club face rather Open clubface dramatically, bunker shots. See the image that demonstrates how the club should look. Without this crucial adjustment to your setup, getting the ball out of the bunker will be very difficult. Remember, your number-one goal when hitting a bunker shot is to club face bunker shot PRO'S CORNER RONNIE THEOBALD want you to open the clubface and attempt to hit the sand. What you will notice is the club enters the sand, then bounces out. Then, I want you to attempt the same shot with a square clubface. You will notice that with a square clubface, the club tends to dig into the sand. This makes the shot much more difficult and is a major reason people leave the ball in the bunker. This is just a small tip on how to improve your bunker game. Consider this to help with part-one in a three-part series. Next week, I will discuss how to set up your body when hitting a bunker shot.
