EKU golf team 11th at Bowling Green
The EKU men’s golf team placed 11th in the Kenny Perry Invitational held at the Club of Olde Stone in Bowling Green Oct. 14 through 16.
Twelve teams took part in the three-day event sponsored by Western Kentucky University. Jacksonville State won the tourney with a total of 928. Louisville was second with 930 and Austin Peay placed third at 933. EKU, with a 980, was one shot behind Morehead State who was 10th with 979.
Taylor Riggs led the Colonels with a score of 243 and tied for 28th overall. Stuart Witt was second with 245; Garrett Hinton was third at 248; Zack Butler was fourth at 249 and Johan Eriksson was fifth at 252.
For these excellent golfers to shoot rounds mostly in the 80s with only three rounds out of 15 under 80 it must have been a course that I never want to go close to.
These young men are talented but did not have their “A” game with them this time. Better luck in bringing down the curtain for this fall season at the APSU in Hopkinsville Oct. 22 and 23.
Special thanks to Kevin Britton, assistant director of athletic public relations at EKU, for the info with an assist from student assistant Miranda Brown.
My friend, Calvin Tolar, mellowed until the age of 76 before he had his first hole-in-one.
He had that one in July at the Madison Country Club on No. 3. He liked that feeling so well he had his second one last week on No. 6 while playing with Don Edwards and Carl Noe at MCC.
Congratulations, Cal, and you da man!
How about this hole-in-one?
John Shearer had a hole-in-one on the par-four No. 18 at Battlefield last week while playing with Larry Shearer. He was playing from a temporary tee that is shortened to 200 yards over water to the green.
That is one fantastic shot!
Bob Hope — I’ll go on living as long as I can. I’ve got a few jokes for the box. If they raise the lid I’ll say a few words on the way to the last hole.
Me too, Bob.
