The atmosphere around the driving range at Flagg Creek Golf Club in the normally sleepy town of Countryside on Wednesday afternoon was electric with a dominating practice session by Joe Hill, 2004 Invitational Shootout Champion. Hill’s crisp ball striking and thunderous drives caught the attention of more than one local patron.
“This guy was bouncing balls off the top of the net at the back of the range” said Dr. Wayne Solomon. “That’s over 300 yards! I was also impressed by his precision iron shots. This guy has to be considered a favorite to win another plaid jacket.”
