On a beautiful day at the Les Bolstad golf course at the U of M the Brookview Metro Senior teams each won their match. The Golden team defeated the first place team from Columbia 16-8. In a weird kind of result, the Golden team was led by their captain Roger Hamm (89 net 75), Ted Roberts (89 net 76) and Doug Paquette (84 net 71). Together they amassed 16 out of a possible 18 points. The odd score was that of their “A” player, Ramiro Sifuentes. Ramiro fired a 78 net 68, competed against an 80 net 68, and lost all six points. How does that happen? Could it be rigged? Go figure!
The Valley team defeated the team from Greenhaven 13-11. The team was led by the outstanding performance of Steve Shellenbaum (84 net 68) and their captain Steve Slivken (85 net 74). Dan Olson (94 net 80) squeezed the team’s remaining two points in his match on the last hole. Sheldon Silberman (97 net 84) did not have his usual consistent game and failed to register a point.
Currently the Valley team is in eighth place (but only four points out of fifth place). The Golden team is on a roll and, after a slow start to the season, is now in eleventh place. For full results and standings go to the website metroseniors.org.
