This past Sunday, the Lady Colonels wrapped up the fall portion of their schedule at Rock Hills, S.C. in the Winthrop Intercollegiate with a third-place finish.
EKU’s 36-hole total of 637 was 12 shots behind first-place Boise State, 625 and 10 shots behind second-place Winthrop, 627.
The nine-team tourney was held at the par-72, 6044 yard Rock Hill Country Club.
The Colonels were led by freshman Sofie Levin and sophomore Becky Sharp with totals of 157 which tied for seventh overall. Rachel Welker shot 161 and tied for 11th. Emilie Simmons, 162, tied for 15th and Anna Gleixner, 167, tied for 26th.
EKU has completed the fall portion of the 2013-1014 schedule. The team will swing back in action for their spring schedule on Feb. 24 in the High Point Classic, hosted by the High Point University at High Point, N.C.
These sweet-swinging ladies opened their fall season with a win in the Kentucky Regional rivalry and I hope they can wind up the spring season by keeping that OVC crown on their heads.
With two promising freshmen on board and three returning sophomores from that OVC Championship team of 2013, things are looking bright for coach Mike Whitson and his talented young ladies.
All of you have a good time this winter. I pray old Mother Nature will give us a break and let you get in a few rounds.
Aloha for a short time.
Mahalo to assistant director of public relations Kevin Britton for all EKU golf info you have given me this year.
Kenny Perry wins Charles Schwab Cup
Kenny Perry kept Kentucky green when he won the year-long Charles Schwab Cup Sunday and picked up a cool $1 million annuity.
Fred Couples won the season-ending Charles Schwab Championship Sunday but Perry had an insurmountable point lead over 28 of the 30 contestants in the year long event.
The only player that could have beaten Perry was Bernhard Langer, who had to win this season ending event to have beat Perry.
Fred Couples picked a fine time to get his ‘A’ game back and win his only tournament of the year. This great win by Couples may have kept Langer from winning the tournament as he finished tied for second.
Congratulations to one nice man, Kenny Perry, on a great season and a big win.
You da Man!

These headlines, Ouch!
“Police Begin Campaign To Run Down Jaywalkers” (That’s taking things a bit far!)
“Miners Refuse To Work After Death” (Those lazy, good for nothing so and sos!)
“War Dims Hope For Peace” (I can see where it might have that effect!)
The trouble with not having a goal is that you can spend your life running up and down the field and never score — Bill Copeland.
Until next time … live, love, laugh and learn, Glenmore.
