Gale blows Steen event away
Saturday’s competition was stableford sponsored by John Steen and a gale — yes, Allen Gale — blew the rest of the field away. In what must have been the round of his life to date, Gale, playing off a 26 handicap, returned 46 stableford points, equivalent to playing to a handicap of 16. As one of the best scores of the year, Allen scored 23 points on each nine which included a wipe on the sixth. Three pars and a birdie on the front nine and three pars on the back nine and very few mistakes are just what you need to blow the rest of the field away from top place.
