"The HILLSDALE Six" - was comprised of BOB "BEAR" MYERS (it is notable that in an effort to be "sporting," Bob would be playing this day using his camera -- instead of a golf club), Capt. CARMINE IADAROLA, JEFF "The Greyhound" ROUSH, Team Guru RANDY MACKENZIE, "The Golfer Formerly Known As Shoe Shine" STEVE KATZMAN -- and the One & Only (& thankfully inimitable?) HOWIE WAHL

Hardly separated since birth, Siamese Twins JEFF ROUSH and BILL "DUKE" GETLER -- although somehow playing on opposing teams this day, approach the 1st Tee... (Ed: sorry/all due apologies where applicable, but just couldn`t resist)

There was, eventually, also plenty of action actually occuring ON the course, too, though (the Home Course of Host BILL "DUKE" GETLER, the fabled "Black Bear CC" in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina). Here, Hillsdalian stalwart, "The One & Only" HOWIE WAHL -- after having the canny presence of mind to request that the flagstick tender at the time, fellow "HILLS DALIAN" the loquacious STEVE KATZMAN, "hold his cup" (rather than tend (hold) the flagstick) summarily rammed home this chip even though it hit the flagstick while about to whistle over the (other) cup at about 30mph -- however it instead -- and fortuitously, dropped straight into the hole for an incredible birdie...much to the astonishment of on-looking teammate BOB "BEAR" MYERS, River Valian JOHN MARKERT -- and fellow teammate/Guru RANDY MACKENZIE (whom as you can observe is looking instead, toward the intended destination of the chip shot...) Coincidence? -- or "Mackenzie Self-Actualized Destiny?" (you decide)...

the action began early: (l-r) Kenny Jones, Tom Pisarri, Carmine Iadarola huggin` up Dabney Roush -- Jeff was in the men`s room at the time, but since Carmine & Jeff are fellow Hillsdalians, there was no harm, no foul), Howie Wahl & Marsha Long (Katzman`s squeeze--the lucky bastard)
