This Saturday I played in my first captain and crew golf tournament of the year. We were supposed to play in a couple other tournaments, but they were canceled do the COVID-19 pandemic.

This Saturday we played in a fundraiser at Genegantslet for the Greene Central School Scholarship Fund. My team consisted of me, my stepson Ian, Tom the Electrician, and our friend Jack. Chris also played in the tournament on another team with two of her cousins, one of which is a teacher at Greene, and one of their cousins.

The weather was beautiful and the course was in the best shape I've ever seen it in. Chris and I played in a Friday night league at Genegantslet for about 5 years, and the greens we played on Saturday were by far in the best shape I've ever seen them.

We finished 3-under with four birdies and one bogey. We were putting for birdie on just about every hole but number 3. That was our only bogey because three of us ended up in the water with Tommy's drive just short of the water. And we were even putting for Eagle a couple of times, but all of our putts were long, like 30 feet long, we just couldn't chip it close. But the score didn't really matter to us because we had a great time.

Chris even won one of the raffle baskets which included six bottles of wine, a $50 gift certificate to The Silo Restaurant, four wine glasses, a wine floor mat, wine opener, a cheese board, a wineopoly game, and other wine accessories.

The money raised went for scholarships for seniors at Greene Central High School.
