Lanier Golf Club
Lindroos, Bowler Take Top Honors
THE LEADER BOARD
Fred gets the prize for BEST DRESSED!!
Bruce Washington - Ryan
Spindler is past champion and
can be good...and he can be average! Rookie Washington knows the
course. Could be in the running on the whiteboard Saturday
Mike Lackey - Lee Ramby
Lackey is solid as a piece of granite. If
Lee-boy gives him a little help, they'll definitely be a
Jim Lindenmayer - Tom Lenahan
Lindy will hit a big ball and
has been playing a lot but still hold the title of TBGTNHWTGNG.
You know Tommy will bring two things -- the quickest mulligan in
the West and good beer!.
Alfred Galang - John Reineking
Phreddie is the consummate thinker on the
course. If he sheds the putting yipps, it could get
interesting. Reineking will make or break their chances.
Pete Barnett - Jim Hughes
Barnett's got game and Jimmy
ain't no slouch. THey'll need to play off each other and not
pick a bad ball from the hat to bury them at the grille.
Mike Yancey - Bob McGowan
Vegas has them at 5-2 odds to win. As a
rookie Yancey burst on to the scene two years ago to win.
McGowan thrives on pressure.
Sandy Dlugozima - Vince Terry
Recent birth of twins will take
a toll on Lugo but don't count this pair out. Vince will
have to have a solid outing and stay out of trouble.
Fred Terry - Scott Terry
If papa bear can channel baby bear's zeal and
enthusiasm into some golf this will be fun twosome to watch.
Scott's a human filibuster so we'll have to put the clock on him
to keep things moving
Gary Savage - Tyler Savage
Gary hits a nice ball and if he
get's it going early, this might be a dark horse team.
T-bone needs to play within his game and give pappa some help
along the way.
Ryan Nichols - Randy Nichols
Young Ryan has spent some time around a golf
course and loves the game. With Daddy-O's guidance (and some
help) ya just never know!
Tom Dutton - Mark Reifenberger
Always a fan favorite, TD
returns after breaking a 16 year consecutive GnG appearance streak
last year. Reif's a rookie and an unknown but as sure as
there will be a few Buds drank in this foursome you can be sure
this will be a 1st, 2nd or 3rd place team!
Jeff Bowler - Rob Lindroos
Bowler has a sweet game and notched a win in his
GnG debut in 2009. Lindroos has been dying to use that big 'ol
driver that he got for Christmas 2 years ago. Bring it on
Pete Van Frayen - Tim Patterson
This cousin duo just might have
what it takes. Rumor has it that Timbo has been on the
course just a "few times" as of late. Young VF has
got some distance and could combine a little brawn and brain to
give GnG 2010 a run!
Mike Van Frayen - Joe Van Frayen
Rich friends who live on golf courses has given 'ol
Joe quite a bit of time on the courses this summer. He'll
need to be on top of his much improved game to pull Pops around
the course. No VF has been in the winners circle in 17
years. Divine Intervention might be the needed elixir!!
Ever wonder why

on reasons why.

You can bring a picnic lunch to the tournament golf course,
watch the best in
the world and not spend a small fortune on food and drink. Try

Coke into Oriole
Park at Camden Yards last year, and an usher came to my seat and
told me I had
to dispose of it, or I would not be allowed to stay in the
