Rip It and Grip It Tid Bits


I guess that the word is out on “Grip it and Rip it”. Over the past couple of days, I have received requests to get the word out on some local events related to golf that I wanted to pass along to my readers.

1. Golf Clubs & “Stuff” Sale
Ann Loughlin asked that I let my readers know about the GOLF CLUBS & “STUFF” SALE. If you have some golf gear that you are interested in selling or are looking to purchase new or used gear, this is the time. This will be held June 3-5 at the UM Golf Course Driving Range. For more details, please see the attached flyer.

2. Blain Lovell Benefit Golf Tournament
9am June 26th at King Ranch in Frenchtown

Blain Lovell is the cousin of a family friend. He is 27 and has cystic fibrosis. His twin brother Brandon passed away 8 years ago from the same disease. Blain has been in the hospital for over a month in Denver, CO awaiting a transplant and will remain long after the transplant is received. Friends and family have put together this tournament to help with the mounting medical costs. For more information, please contact Shawna Putnam at 406-239-7129

If you have any golf related announcements that you would like to get out to the community, please contact me by leaving me a note in the comments section of this blog or through my Facebook page or the Missoula Junior Golf page on Facebook. Please include the pertinent information on the event and how to contact you.


Todd Wolverton was born in Missoula and is a UM class of ‘88 alum. He has been an avid golfer for over 40 years, but make no mistake, he’s no pro. He’s just a guy on the course yelling “fore”. Todd is the first to tell you he has his good days and his bad–but to him there are no bad days that include golf. Yes, Todd loves to tell stories and right here is where you will hear them–on a weekly basis. You can expect stories about his latest round, stuff he knows or thinks he knows, and interesting anecdotes about the the past and the present in the world of golf as he knows it…Missoula area golf!
