“We played as partners many times. I was the fastest player on the course and he was the slowest, but it was always fun.’’
Always searching for the perfect putter, Ezinicki, who lived across the street from The International until last year, started every lesson the same way — learn how to hit the wedge.
“I enjoyed many conversations about the golf swing with him,’’ said Chris Kasheta , director of golf at The International. “When he gave a lesson it could become a two- or three-hour personal clinic.’’
Ruffing starts fast at Franklin Pierce
After graduating from Duke University, Westborough High grad Ryan Ruffing enrolled at Franklin Pierce University. Still eligible to play soccer as a graduate student, he has given the Ravens a boost offensively.
Through 12 games, the 6-foot-1 Ruffing had scored four goals, including a pair of game-winners.
“Ryan has brought a great deal of athleticism to the central forward spot,’’ said head coach Ian Clerihew, whose team was 9-3 overall and 7-2 in the Northeast-10 Conference prior to last Wednesday’s game vs. St.Michael’s.
“His determination to score goals has elevated our team’s capabilities in the offensive zone.’’ Ruffing, the 2008 all-state 100-meter dash champion, started his collegiate career at George Washington University before transferring to Duke as a sophomore.
