There was so much action on the local links last weekend that I couldn’t fit all the results into one column!
Here’s a recap of the rest of the action from a fun-filled weekend!
The Legends Senior Tournament at Berea
On Saturday, 21 senior golfers teed it up at the Berea Country Club in this unique event.
Winners in the 40-69 years of age group were John Newton with a net 63 and Greg Prater with a net 66.
In the Super Seniors 70 and over division, Pnut Johnson shot a round of his life and waltzed to victory with a net 58.
Raymond Ross was second with a 61.
In the special events, closest to the pin winners were Ralph Howe on No. 5 and John Newton on No. 2.
Mr. Peter Hackbert came up with the idea of having a tournament to honor seniors and the entry fee was different for every age group, from $30 for the Cubs to $5 if you were over 90.
It’s too bad this tourney bucked so many other tournaments because it is a good format.
Congratulations to the winners and thanks to my lovely wife, Carolyn, for the typed results.
Jan Barnes champ at MCC
This past Saturday, the Ladies Championship was held at the Madison Country Club.
After a tough battle with Missy Smith, Jan and Missy finished the 18th tied with identical scores of 83. Jan won on a playoff on No. 1 with a par.
Amanda Stepp came in third.
In the First Flight, Coy Perkins was the winner with a score of 97 and Julie Hovey was second with a 98.
The Second Flight winner was Nicole Robertson with a 90 and Wendy Winters was second with a 91.
Congratulations Jan and “you da woman!”
Stephanie Giacchini at Arlington
On Saturday, Aug. 10, Stephanie Giacchini won the Ladies Championship at the Arlington Country Club.
She outlasted Jan Barnes and last year’s winner, Verda Wylie. Jan took second and squeaked out a one-stroke victory over Verda, who took third place.
Great golf, Steph!
The Labor Day Tournament at Madison Country Club — This is the oldest tournament in the county. It was started in 1944 during World War II. The winner was Scudder Pearson, whom I caddied for a couple of times in the 30s. This tournament has two PGA major event winners as past champions — Master’s winner Gay Brewer won it twice and Bobby Nichols, PGA Champ, won it once. For info call 623-6468. There may still be an opening.
We can do anything we want to if we stick at it long enough — Helen Keller.
