PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” The Hemlock View Golf Course held its annual Club Championships last weekend, crowning champions in three different divisions: Men's, women's and seniors'.
Forty-eight club members competed over the weekend despite the warm temperatures and incredibly high humidity.
In the men's division, there were four separate "flights." Which flight a competitor plays in is determined by that particular player's handicap.
All right, last week, I said that even though I should have been ready to talk football, I just wasn't up to it yet. Well, in the past week, things have changed.
Maybe it had something to do with the conclusion of the baseball and softball seasons, culminating with the Little League softball tournament last weekend and the Teener League states.
Or, maybe it had something to do with my beloved Pittsburgh Pirates plummeting from first to third in their division â€” now nine and 1/2-games behind the first-place Brewers.
