I don’t have any big secret about putting. Just hit at it. It’s either going to miss or go in.—Ben Crenshaw

Maybe Ben Crenshaw’s putting advice works from the tee?
KC Campbell took Gentle Ben’s advice to heart at the February 25 LGA match and “just hit at it” from the tee on number 7. We’re all familiar with the many ways that shot can miss, including taking a swim, visiting the beach, and bouncing down the hill and over the cart path. It can also manage to hit the green on rare occasions, and I once saw the late and greatly missed Jerry Wagner bounce it off the water and onto the green.
KC proved that the ball also might go in the hole when she scored an ace during the Tuesday match. She parlayed that ace into a first place finish in the tournament gross score competition. To no one’s surprise, she also won the closest to the pin prize.
Anita Kopplhuber was second in the gross match, followed by Lily Cramer. Kathy Antwine won the net competition, followed by Lynn Ricker and JoAnn Hill. Kathy Antwine and KC scored chip-ins, Jackie Rigsby had the fewest putts,, and Kathy Antwine and Lily Cramer both scored birdies.
