The Sun Lakes Lady Niners had only three days of league play in January, the fourth being their Partner Scramble. In writing this article, I thought I would include some famous golf quotes for your entertainment.

In Flight 2, Joann Brown took first place with 16, second place was Jeanne Norton with 18, and third place was Ann Hegney with a 15. “The reason the pro tells you to keep your head down is so you can’t see him laughing.” ~ Phyllis Diller
