GLENMORE: Pendergrass men’s champ at Madison Country Club

By Glenmore Jones

RICHMOND — This past Sunday, Tom Pendergrass won the Men’s Madison Country Club Championship.

Tom shot a 75 on a windy day to beat defending champ Selby Wiggins, 77, by two shots. Anthony Parks also had a 77 to tie for second. Derek Ward was fourth with a 78.

Congratulations, Tom on a great win!

Maupin and Reed win Member/Member at       Berea Country Club

Last weekend, 14 teams teed it up at the Berea Country Club in quest of a win in the annual Member/Member tournament.

After two beautiful days for golf, Whitney Maupin and Glyn Reed stepped into the winner’s circle in the Championship Flight with a 131 for the 36-hole tournament.

Greg Prater and Doug Duerson took second place with a 135.

The First Flight winners were Mark Bowling and Gary Holtzclaw with 146. Second place went to Mitch Maupin and Jim Durham with a 148. Gary Rose and Dan Crawford also had 148 but lost on a scorecard match. 

Ouch!

Saturday night they all enjoyed a steak dinner provided by Nikki Layne and Barbara Belcher and danced away the night to music by DJ Anthony Hudson.

A great time was had by all.

Congrats to Tristyn Nowlin and Zach Miller

I think it was quite an achievement that these two excellent young golfers made it to the Kentucky State Tournament this year. 

Unfortunately Zach did not bring his “A” game with him this first time but hey, he is a champion and he has many more years to get in that ring again, so I look at a bright future for him.

To see an eighth grader qualify for the state tournament is fantastic.

You da man, Zach!

Tristyn Nowlin made an excellent debut in the state tournament with a pair of four-over par 76s for a 152 total and an 11th-place finish.

As Tristyn gets a little more strength and experience I see nothing but success for this young lady in the future.

Keep it going, Tristyn!

I hope that I may stay on this old earth long enough to see this young Central girls team develop. With three sophomores — Tristyn Nowlin, Kailey Boyer and Paige Stamper, sixth grader Mattie Neeley and seventh grader McKenzie Neal (who has been brilliant), they have no place to go but up.

Wow!

I see a lot of buttons popping off of Central girls coach Mike Neal in the future.

Humor for the day

Proofreading Boo Boo — “Man kills self before shooting wife and daughter.”

Ouch!

Notice in a farmers field — The farmer allows walkers to cross the field for free, but the bull charges.

Upcoming events

Saturday — EKU Homecoming Football Game against Tennessee Tech at 3 p.m. Come out and support the Colonels!

Final thought

I never wanted to be anything but a gymnast. Maybe it’s dangerous — but when you start thinking of danger, you might as well give up — Olga Korbut
