The 6th Annual Lawrence J. Del Papa Memorial Golf Tournament is rapidly approaching (Monday, Nov. 2, at Moody Gardens Golf Course), and the Meals on Wheels Annual Thanksgiving Holiday Tournament is only a few weeks later (Monday, Nov. 23, at Galveston Country Club). If you haven’t yet assembled your teams and made official your participation in one or both, better hurry.

You will, of course, want to have on your team that one player who can really bomb the tee ball on those par 4s and 5s. In recognition of those bombers, this week’s column takes a look at distances the ball goes whether launched by a low or high handicapper, by a youngster, or a golfer just young at heart.
