Friday, May 18, 1973 THE LETHBRIDGE HERAU) 13 SULLY SAYS -By Pat Sullivan EARL FRANCIS, golf pro- fessional at Henderson Lake Golf Club, thoroughy enjoys it when I go golfing. "I'll bet you're afraid to tell the people about your golf game, he said the other day. Why should I be afraid to tell you about my golf game? So it's lousy, that's no big deal. With a little work it could be a lot worse. When I go golfing I buy fish food. If there is any water on the course, I'll end up in it with one of my many shots. I golfed with a couple of fellows I hadn't met before sometime back. One of them asked me what my handi- cap was. That was easy. Three woods, eight irons and a putter. I don't whip a golf Individually I'm just as consistent. Take the last round of golf I played for example. I went out with Miles Maughan for nine holes and shot a 53. I got off to a terri- fic start with a par on the par-four first hole. My drive went down the middle. A seven iron put me on the green. Two putts later and I'm leading by two strokes as Miles took a six after tel- ling me how hot he had been on the links lately. I relieved the pressure on the second hole as I sliced my ball and hit Lakeview Bakery. From there it was into a sand trap. Lucky for Did you read the letter to the editor Thursday? It dealt with the ever-increasing bru- tality of junior hockey. One team in particular was taken to task by 16 members of the medical society -here in Lethbridge. I have never known doc- tors to go out of their way to seek publicity. So you can rest assured theirs was not a crack at getting attention. I can't help but agree with them in then- reasoning that things are steadily getting worse. Junior hockey in parti- cular, has become a game of win at all costs. The high prices paid for hockey talent course, I destroy it. I yiay like the Spiro Agnew of Leth- bridge. The only difference between myself and Agnew is I could never hit anyone on the head unless they were lying down. I have trouble getting tee-shots into the air, despite the fact the ball is on a tee. I may not be ready to chal- lenge Jack Nicklaus, but I have desire. My buddy and I entered a golf tournament a couple of years back. It was a best-ball affair so we felt we would be alright considering you only count the lowest score on each hole. That wasn't the answer. We finished with a 129 best-ball and the next day the tournament official" sent us out in a two-some b ourselves. me it did, if the ball had kept going past the sand, I would have been in the park- ing lot. The third hole wasn't much better nor were any of the others. I led by three strokes coming home and blew it. My drive on nine was two feet from the Lake. I tried to go through the trees onto the fairway bilt was short. I ended up with a seven and had to settle for a tie. I don't mind playing golf the way I do. After all, who gets to hit the ball more often than me? Th.ose good golfers spend all their time walking. these days has, I feel, a great deal to do with it. If things are allowed to pro- gress at there present rate, a fatal injury will be the final result. How many times have you heard, on the heels of a fatal accident, "we should have done something about it. The doctors seek to have but one club punished. From what I have seen of junior hockey the past few seasons mayhem is now the rule, no longer the exception. Officials everywhere had best begin clamping down. All the talent of these 18 men combined may not be enough to offset an injury in the near future.
