The Lake Ripley Women’s Organization played “Sucker in the Bucket” on Tuesday, Sept. 7.
“Sucker in the Bucket” is when a foursome eliminates the lowest score from being used on each hole.
Lowest score on the next two holes also gets dropped, putting pressure on the lone golfer left, “the sucker,” to have a good hole score since theirs will be the only one used for the hole. The one-by-one elimination repeats for the entire round.
In first place was the team of Pat Clifford, Joyce Gehler and Jan Tremain. The second place team was Sarah Baird, Charlene Cederberg and Carol Zimbric.
April Mickelson scored a birdie through a sunken approach on the fifth hole. Other sunken approaches included Sarah Baird on the 14th hole, Joyce Gehler and Marlene Lee on 12 and Betty Reay on the ninth hole.
For the nine-hole golfers, Kristin Purdy had low net with Denise Lind a close second in flight one. Low Putts went to Denise Lind with a tie for second between Carol Schneider and Virginia Newcomb.
