Kudos to Lenny Rapozo, University of Hawaii golf coach Ronn Miyashiro and all the people who made the John A. Burns golf tournament a success!
Ian Costa was out during the rounds and couldn’t figure out if he could help that golfer from Texas A&M whose golf ball got eaten by the Norfolk at the No. 9 hole Friday. He said the golfer’s club got stuck in the tree, too, on an attempt to dislodge the ball (Ian said there were several balls up there).
He wasn’t there when Miyashiro had to figure out the ruling on the ball that got eaten by the sand at one of the bunkers.
Angel Madrid was out on all the days to check out the action, and Dr. Michael Oride (he said a couple of the families are staying with them) came out on Friday to see what was happening. Gail and Cory (he’s still playing golf) came out when the wind blew from the opposite direction as well as during the final round, and Ross Shimabukuro was doing “a little bit of everything” as a volunteer.
