Cindy Paquet Wins Seniors’

Cindy Paquet of Essex won the Ruth Raymond Jones Memorial Seniors' Championship over the sun-drenched Ralph Myhre Golf Club in Middlebury.  After the opening round of play, Cindy had a five-stroke lead over Mary Corey of Cedar Knoll and a six-stroke lead over two-time champion Ethleyn Bartlett of  Champlain.  Several players were tied at eight strokes back including Janet Austin of Burlington, Carolyn Swiatek of Burlington, Betty Hanson of Sugarbush, Susan Catlin of Barre, and Eva Mastalos of the host club.  In the second round, Cindy added an 81 to her opening 78 for her third victory in four years.  Ethelyn edged out Mary by one stroke for second place.  Ethelyn also won the Super Senior trophy.  Janet Austin, playing very steady golf with a pair of 86's, finished in fourth place and also won the Legend trophy.  

Carolyn Swiatek, also with a pair of 86's, won the traditional low net prize of a golf bag in a sudden death playoff over Linda Evans of Brattleboro.  Both players were tied with two-day net scores of 136.  The fewest putts award went to Sue Ginnett of Newport with 27 putts in the opening round of play.

The 9-hole Tournament featured four players:  Mary Woodward, Bonnie Briggs, and Mimi Emory all of Lake Morey and Ann Paquet of Essex.  Ann came from behind with 53 over the tough back nine on Thursday to win the event.

The newly instituted Pat Job Cup for the club team with the three lowest net scores over the two days went to Burlington Country Club with a total of 422 edging the host Ralph Myhre club by just three strokes.
