Every Thursday since January, retired BJ printer Hugh Downing lined up tee times for the threesome of Hugh, former State Desk reporter Bob Page and former BJ editor John Olesky at one of the 49 golf courses in The Villages, Florida.
Today was the farewell outing for the BJ 3 because John is heading back to Tallmadge, Ohio, after his son and grandson visit; Hugh has family visiting; and Bob is busy with his church’s activities where he is associate pastor.
In a fitting farewell, the three combined for the best threesome total of the year.
Hugh, whose putter was smoking hot, shot a 36. I think that’s his best 2016 score with the BJ 3.
Bob shot a 37. So did John, despite four 3-putt greens.This will have to do till next winter in the funnest housing development in America where 119,000 people make every day a playday.
