Good timing needed in sports and in life

It is often said that timing is very important, especially at the race track. You could be scanning your racing sheets and finally decide on a horse to invest in and you just are not quick enough to get to the windows.

Your choice runs “up the track” and you save money – that is good timing. The horse wins and you don’t have a dime on him – that’s bad timing.

I experienced a good timing moment on the final day at Saratoga. I stopped at the rooftop press box to watch the second race and I was handed a gift basket from a representative of Three Chimneys, who thanked members of the media for a job well done throughout the 40-day meet.

Truth be told I only went up there to grab a free hot dog. That is also good timing.

*Week 1 of the Berkshire County Seniors Series was very successful. Eric Tiele and Worthington Golf Club was the host course. A 64 in the 2-man scramble by Fred Goerlach and Ralph Dastoli nipped Pat Grogan and Jim Crews by a stroke to take gross honors.

The net winners were Bill Lyon and Wally Fritz . A birdie on hole 18 took the entire skin pool and, for tax purposes, the winner will remain nameless. The week 2 event will be played will be played at Waubeeka in Williamstown.

*As if the Today Show is not annoying enough, why do they continue to bring Len Berman on with his silly clips of sports bloopers? They have already been shown on every channel when they occurred and often repeated, so now we have to listen to the fake laughter of Matt, Al and crew and watch them again.

It is time for Mr. Berman to go away or for me to stop watching that show, or both!

*Finally got up to The Country Club of Greenfield, my first trip since a fire destroyed the clubhouse last fall. They have been operating from a trailer with a make-shift kitchen and dining tent, and the new construction will be completed soon.

As always, the greens rolled true and the course was in great shape. It was nice to see the familiar parking lot sign that read, “This space reserved for PGA pro James ‘Bucky’ O’Brien.” Bucky has been there since before the invention of the automobile.

It is a great place for a fall road trip. If you go, stop in and say hello to Bucky and wish him well.

*Just a reminder, if you are planning a golf road trip, be advised to call ahead and ask if the greens have been plugged. It is that time of the year when many clubs will aerate the greens and the conditions will be sub par for a few days.

*If you are lucky enough to play in an outing at Waubeeka Golf Links in Williamstown, bring your appetite. The spreads are always the best. Mark Mills and his staff go out of their way to treat you like a member (that has paid his dues).

*It will be a great year to follow Berkshire County high school golf. There is a lot of talent and many of the teams go deep in the lineup. They can also hit it deep as witnessed by your scribe.

Lenox senior Tom Vilettto made the difficult second hole at Cranwell look easy when he hit driver, wedge to eight feet on the 485-yard par five from the back tees.

*Good to see former McCann hoop coach Tim Carroll back in the area for the MCLA Golf Classic. Tim recently retired as superintendent of vocational schools on Cape Cod.
