13th golf season
By Lenny Roberts
The Sundowners Golf League finished
its 13th season opener Tuesday afternoon at Soule Park with the
Village Idiots perched atop the standings.
With 57 points, Capt. Mike Willet's team took a two-point lead
over second place Leftovers, four ahead of Above Par and Chiefs
In the 16-week league where points, not scores determine each
individual player's performance, Jay Ackerman earned 21 points
for his nine-hole round of 39. Other point leaders were Scott
Davis, Jay Jamison, Mike Urbanek, Jim Corral, Scott Chasse and
Brian Ramsey, each of whom posted 20 points.
Low-gross rounds for the day were posted by Davis, 35, Corral
and Jacob Lusk, 36, and Stan Coburn, Jamison and Terry Gustafson,
with one-over-par 37s.
All but seven of the league's 80 players showed up to play on
a chilly, overcast afternoon. Play resumes Tuesday, and will
continue through August, when the top teams from each half compete
in a playoff and the Callender Cup, named after Ed Callender,
the league's 96-year-old honorary commissioner.
Last year's champions, #$?!@$%, returned to defend the title,
as did 14 other teams. Jamison, who along with Rob Graham played
many years with Sam Williamson's Sambaggers, are the nucleus
of Dr. Jay's FPs, the leagues only new team. After 12 seasons,
the charter Sambaggers are now known as Meiners Oaks Sash and
