Gene Nord, a member of the BMC for 43 years, and a Past President, recently made some personal history and, in the process, became the most recent BMC member to shoot his age.

Of this feat, Gene’s son, Tim, also a Past BMC President and current board member, writes:

“On Tuesday, June 20th, Gene took his motley crew of ‘Tuesday Travelers’ to Montgomery National Golf Club, located somewhere in the neighborhood of New Prague. Little did he know it would be a most memorable venture.

When the strokes were tallied, Gene’s total came to 84. This was accomplished by a stunning 39 on the front that included 4 straight pars and a backside 45 that included a triple. Niner pars in total gave him the 84, which is his lowest score ever. And, most importantly, it means he shot his age. Our 3rd longest tenured BMC member is 85.

Playing partner Denny Russell said ‘The man played great! Steady all the way. He was driving it, he was chipping it and he was putting it. A joy to watch.” Kevin Thein added ‘He was silky smooth all day. Putting was excellent.’

Kudos to Gene for accomplishing something that we all hope to do someday.”
