… AND I NEVER SLICE

As the hot afternoon sun hit the backs of the six participants in the [B]First Annual Jade Tree Miniature Golf Tournament[/B], it looked like Summer Intern Matt might run away with the day. After nailing a hole in one on his first shot Matt continued his dominance thru the first half only to be overcome on the ninth by Tim. With Tim and Matt leading at the start of the second half, the competition looked to be all but over. But as the famous vocalist Kenny Rogers once stated "You never count your money while you’re sittin’ at the table…" Enter David; born and bred on family vacation after family vacation, Disney World to Traverse City, there was always a mini-golf course to conquer. He did try to warn his co-workers of his non-amateur status but no one listened. The focus was on Tim, Jade Tree’s resident golf enthusiast and the subject of yesterday’s inner-office discussion on the hardest sport to play. Only four strokes back from the leader, David quickly won the tenth by two strokes and continued neck and neck with the leader until the 17th where he pulled away. At the end of the day one stroke was all that separated victory from defeat. David walked away with office bragging rights and regular size lemon water ice. Well done!
