Though golf is a classic offseason pastime for most players, the undisputed consensus among the Islanders is that Cal Clutterbuck is always the standout on the golf course.
“Cal is on his own tier, then there’s probably five to eight guys in the next tier.” Dobson said.
Pulock sported a Sebonack pullover on Monday, as he’s been working his way around the Long Island golf course circuit, not necessarily for a run at Clutterbuck’s title, but the practice paid off during the golf outing.
“My golf game improved this summer, I got a little better,” Pulock said. “My short game needs some work but overall, I’m really enjoying playing golf and being out in the course today.”
The golf outing concluded with a cocktail hour, dinner and a live auction in the clubhouse at Glen Oaks. Prizes included signed Islanders and New York sports memorabilia as a Stadium Series game experience when the Isles take on the Rangers on Feb. 18.
While the current Islanders were getting back together for the unofficial start of the season, they were also joined by alumni spanning different decades who were happy to raise money for the kids – rain or shine.
“It’s nice seeing everyone on the team, the prospects and the people that are here,” Johnny Boychuk said. “It’s nice to see familiar faces, all for a good cause.”
