Congrats go out to Coral Schulz for winning the 2018 Women’s Club Championship at Whitefish Lake Golf Course. Schulz shot an even par round on the south Course on Saturday and followed with a 74 on the North Course on Sunday to easily win the title for the third time. Kathy Dodd won the ladies senior division with impressive rounds of 73-87. Kendall Reed is this year’s Junior girls champion with two days of very good golf.
The men’s division was won again by Mark Mance who has now won four times. Carroll Lilly won his eighth straight senior men’s title with rounds of 70-70 and Dave Streeter repeated as the Super Senior (over 70) champion shooting 75-71. Cameron Kahle won the junior boy’s championship with rounds of 79-83 for the two days.
A field of 158 players competed in this year’s Club Championship, which was the largest number of players in recent history. However, no one made a hole-in-one to ride off on a new Harley Davidson motorcycle sponsored by Mark Kuhr of Hub International Insurance and Glacier Harley Davidson.
Special thanks to Tim Olson, Christine Newton, Lindsey Sebby, Cody Olson and Adam Long for running such a great tournament for the members and Doug Reed for contributing to the food.
Good putters and not-so-good putters
Great putters gather information on their putts in a logical process and focus on rolling the ball to make their putts. Many of the best will actually visualize the ball rolling along the line and seeing it drop into the hole. The poorer putter concerns themselves with the mechanics such as grip, stance, length of the backswing. One golfer is committed to making the putt and the other to the process of putting, not the outcome. Leave any mechanical thoughts on the putting green and commit to the target once you are on the course. On the days you can see the line on the green you understand it is about making a stroke along the line and watching the putts fall.
