"My short game," said Edward Thompson, "that's my forte. I can score well but that's because I'm consistent. I'm always the shortest guy off the tee."

Except when he's playing the par-3 holes.
Thompson may not have a booming drive but it can be pretty accurate. Just ask the guys he regularly plays with at Royal Oaks Golf Club.
Earlier this summer, Thompson hit a 7-iron off the tee on the 125-yard 11th hole at Royal Oaks.
...
As it turned out, Thompson was just getting warmed up.
A retired teacher who will be celebrating his 81st birthday next month, Thompson's hole-in-one also came during a round in which he shot his age, an 80. And it didn't take him long to improve.
Wednesday, again playing his regular round at Royal Oaks, he hit a 9-wood off the tee on the 126-yard third hole.
"I looked where the pin was, took out a club and hit it," Thompsonsaid, "and it rolled in."
For the second time this summer, Thompson had carded a hole-in-one, and this time, he did himself one better. For the round, he carded a 79, bettering his age by a stroke.
The aces were the second and third of his career, Thompson

said. His first hole-in-one came during the 1990s while he was living in North Carolina.
A Pennsylvania native, Thompson grew up in Mt. Union and joined the Navy following high school. While in the Navy, he also enrolled in the Navy School of Music, where he his love for the trombone began another facet of his life.
When he left the Navy, Thompson returned to Pennsylvania to attend what was then Mansfield State Teachers' College, where he earned a degree in music education. He and his wife, Doris, married shortly thereafter and moved to Long Island to begin his teaching career.
Thompson spent 30 years teaching both music and elementary school. He earned a graduate degree in education from Hofstra University, and while teaching, also continued to play his trombone in a band specializing in the Big Band sound.
"We played all over New York," he said. "We played at the Lincoln Center, at the Mayor's Office, at the Twin Towers. I stayed very active."
Thompson retired in 1985, and he and his wife moved to Etowah, N.C., where they lived "almost on a golf course.
...
Thompson no longer plays the trombone but he and his wife both sing in the Lebanon Chorale Society. And, since moving back to Pennsylvania, he also began focusing on his golf game.
Thompson began playing golf in 1958, and now plays five days a week, three days at Royal Oaks and two days at Monroe Valley. He plays pretty well.
"So far this year," he said, "I've shot my age or better 16 times. My lowest score was a 74 at Monroe Valley."
Doris, his wife of 56 years, used to play golf, Thompson said, but has since given up the game. Thompson isn't planning on stopping anytime soon.
"I'm pleased with the way I'm playing," he said.
