Lawrence regular, “Backspin” Bob Richards didn’t make it to golf on Saturday as planned. He got up to let the dog out and the wind shut the door behind him locking him out. He was last seen trying to break into his own house.
Chris Moorehead was behind a tree on the 18th so he took a 7 iron to chip it without following through and hitting the tree. Unfortunately he did swing a bit hard and bent the club, though the ball did finish on the green. Another repair job for our Pro Paul King.
