  • The inexact science of the putt

    Putting is only one facet of the sometimes frustrating, sometimes sublime game of golf. But the importance of making a putt showed when the Grant County girls’ golf team competed in their tournament on Sept. 12.

    The girls were able to take first place after each girl was able to par their last hole. They won the Grant County Classic by one stroke and had any of the girls not been able to finish the job on the green, they would have walked away without the first place finish.
