Terry Knight scored in the first inning for Shelton when he tripled and was hit in by Mike Nutt's single. Don Havens also had a double in the inning, but Nutt was thrown out at home. Two more runs were tallied in the second frame by Shelton when Clyde Rains and Mike Hagan scored as the first two batters in the inning. Rains singled as did Hagan, and Hagan's hit was mishandled by the centerfielder, Rains going home on the error. Hagan was later batted in by Jim Densley, who singled.

IT'S 633 S. 1st Beginner Advanced Beginner and Intermediate register =- Th Fall Into At B ryshore's Third Hole In the feast-or-famine pattern which seems to govern holes-in-one at the Shelton Golf Club, linksmen have enjoyed another gourmet menu of late on the Bayshore premises. Within a ten-day period 'recently, three legitimate aces were recorded along with another which didn't count. All were achieved on the short, over-the-creek third hole. Larry Knudson started the spree by holing his tee shot there June 28, followed by Darrell Denniston on July 7'and Ron Ellis on July 8. Denniston's, however, was the more prestigious because his shot was popped from the long tee which turns the third hole into the twelfth in an 18-hole round. This stretches the distance from 115 to 140 yards. During this same period, club champion Sonny Lowe dropped a tee-to-cup shot which didn't qualify as a hole-in-one because it was a provisional ball hit when his first shot lit in a possible out of bounds position. Lowe has a previous ace to his credit on the third hole, so the loss wasn't quite sohard ito take as it might hav~ been.
