Tom M- Plays with a 30 plus handicap but thinks he’s on tour. Has been known to miscalculate scores on balls in water, lost balls,and the definition of double bogey. Uses “ground under repair” as his greatest asset. Says he’s color blind and that every stake looks red to him. Has been known to carry a spray can so be careful of drop spots. His signature hole is number 19 where he’s known to take few mulligans. Hails from Maryland. Heralded for his play with the Eagles and Rams. Last to play without a face guard and it shows.
