August 15, 2013

CRANSTON—For many of the Southern Rhode Island locals competing in the 82nd Rhode Island Open this week at Alpine Country Club in Cranston, Tuesday’s opening round was unforgiving. And it had nothing to do with the weather.

“You couldn’t ask for an easier day weather-wise to play golf, so no excuses there.”

August 15, 2013

CRANSTON – When the rain came through on Tuesday morning, it made the course soft. Ideal conditions to shoot the number of low scores that adorned the top of the leader board through the opening round of the 82nd Rhode Island Open Championship at Alpine Country Club.
