League City’s Mike Standly was among more than 100 golfers who teed up at last week’s Lone Star NGL Texas Senior Open at Eagle Pointe Golf Course in Mont Belvieu.

Standly, a former University of Houston All-American and PGA Tour winner, was three shots off the lead after round one of the event, which was shortened from 54 to 36 holes because of bad weather; and his two under par total was good enough to tie for 10th place. San Antonio’s Chris Hunsucker won the championship with a two-day total of 11 under par.

12 years as an elected officer of the Bayou Golf Association and six years as the handicap officer I learned nearly all golfers are in one way or other "SANDBAGGERS".For most their official handicap is too high. They believe they really play better than the handicap they earned. They are no problem. The real problem is the good player that "adjusts" their score cards to get a higher number than they deserve. Games they play give strokes they don't deserve and collect winnings without a qualm. Team scramble games attract players who claim higher than honest handicaps. Big charity events are won by the team with the biggest sandbaggers.
