David Howell sent the news. We can help,him celebrate his win! – Lil
As golfers age their prowess on the links generally diminish, but on some days the stars are aligned. Today at Hooper was one such day. Groups were teeing off early to avoid the blistering heat that would soon envelop the day. One group involved 7 friends who compete for low scores adjusted with appropriate handicaps. Two of the players, David Johnson and David Howell where paired with Paul Boa in the first group to tee off. Because the course is in fabulous shape, the greens smooth and verdant, the fairways closely mowed and even throughout, it was a perfect day and setting for good golf. And some magic occurred this day as both Howell (aged 73) and Johnson (aged 74) “shot their ages”, meaning they took 73 and 74 shots respectively to finish 18 holes.
Hooper is a more than a magical place. It’s breathtakingly stunning. The new owners are working hard to make Hooper a gem for all Walpole residents to be proud of. Do take friends and family and check it out. It is open every day.
