The 2017 PGA Professional Shootout was held Tuesday, April 4th at 12:30 p.m on the front nine of the South Course. It is a golf tournament where our pros and the qualifying golf apprentices compete. There were 16 participants with 4 foursomes playing holes 1 through 5. After 5 holes, the lowest 5 players aggregate score went on to the next part of the tournament. By the time the 4th group finished, the large crowd of spectators had arrived and were anxiously awaiting to see who the lowest 5 players would be. Well three players were tied so there was a 3 way chip off. A chip off in case of a tie is that the rules official, Mel Boren, chooses where the ball will be placed for the players to chip toward the flag. The closest one wins. Of course each player has his back to the flag until he chips. The players proceeding with the tournament were: Rich Luchini, Will Jones, Christoff Els, Josh Chaplin, and Tom Fearon who was eliminated on hole #6. The next to be eliminated on hole #7 was Rich Luchini, followed by Josh Chaplin on #8. And then there were two! Christoff and Will who both played extremely well. Our 2017 Champion is WILL JONES with Christoff Els runner-up. It was the most exciting Shoot Out yet with many chip offs and excellent playing.

Participants were: JR Congdon, Rich Luchini, Rocco Panzzitta, Luis Leon, Chris Horn, Todd Kitchen, Tom Ku- binski, Will Jones, Christoff Els, Tom Fearon , Josh Chaplin, Sam Allen, Steve Savage, Nathan Lingard, George Jones and Tom Ferriday.

Bailey was born on January 17, 2017 and arrived at our home 8 weeks later. She is a yellow English Labrador Retriever. Though young we have already noticed how intelligent she is. Training has begun at this young age and she is doing far better than we had expected. She is sweet and loving as well. Our whippet Rocket still isn't sure how she feels about the new arrival. We are certain that they will work it out and become best of friends. If anyone happens to see us walking around Frenchman's Creek with Bailey and Rocket we invite you to come by and say hello. You will be greeted with lots of tail wagging and kisses.

I volunteered to read at the Passover Seder. As I stood on the little stage, I looked out and saw wall- to-wall tables covered with starched white cloths, cut crystal and silverware and filled with all the Passover special dishes. The tables were surrounded by families and friends who, in turn, were surrounded by our beautiful staff , dressed immaculately and ready to serve 450 people simultaneously. And for the million-and-oneth time, I was so grateful to be living in this very special place.
