Short Drive Contest

Cole Topper from Crab Creek Golf Course captured the 9th Annual Rusty Golfer Shortest Drive Contest (RGSDC) which is held at their indoor practice facility each February.

Taking advantage of the home turf advantage, Cole (in stall # 15) defeated fellow finalist Eli Nuffington with a full swing drive of 7 inches. "I was born for this." Topper claimed. "My head comes up naturally."

Eli could only manage a 3 footer, which fell far long of his goal.

Islandwood's best finisher (8th place) was Lars Fjord with an unfortunate yet delightful "chipmunk-chaser" of nearly fifteen yards.

Said Mr. Fjord, "If people realized just how hard it is to just-miss whiffing, there would be more spectators showing up. The RGSDC committee should publicize us more. Maybe next year."
