This past weekend, 11 two-person (male and female) teams teed it up in the annual swinging duo golf tournament at the old Madison Country Club.
It was a 36-hole, two day event with nine hole best ball and nine hole scramble each day.
Stepping into the winner's circle at the end of two beautiful, fun days of golf, in the first flight, was the team of Selby Wiggins and Coy Perkins with a fine score of 131.
Second-place honors went to Chad Gordon and Wendy Winters with a 133. Third place went to Hubert Broaddus and Pat Brandenburg with a 140.
The winners of the second flight were Todd Doolin and Susan Bybee with a score of 134. Second place went to Nick Bowling and Amy Palmer with a 143. Third place went to Bonnie and Steve Cosby with a 144.
Chairman Hubert Broaddus did his usual fine job of putting on another tourney at the old MCC.
Special thanks to Lisa Wall for the results.
Playing in the swinging duos tournament at the Madison Country Club on Saturday, Steve Cosby helped his team to a third-place finish by holing his pitching wedge on No. 3.

You da man!
Special thanks to Bonnie Cosby for sending me the results.

EKU takes 16th at Mercedes-Benz Intercollegiate
The Eastern Kentucky University women’s golf team placed 16th last Tuesday at the 23rd-annual Mercedes-Benz Intercollegiate, hosted by the University of Tennessee.
The field included No. 7 Kent State and No. 28 Tennessee, along with LSU, Maryland, Augusta and Charlotte. The 16-team event was contested at the par 71, 5,900-yard Cherokee Country Club.
Kent State (830) won the event by five shots over Charlotte (835). LSU (859) was third and Tennessee (863) fourth.
EKU shot rounds of 305, 306 and 310 for a 54-hole total of 921. The Colonels were eight shots behind 15th-place East Tennessee.
Sophomore Bailey Hubbard was EKU’s top finisher and tied for 53rd overall. She shot rounds of 76, 75 and 76 for a total of 227.
EKU will be back in action Friday at the Bettie Lou Evans Invitational hosted by the University of Kentucky at the University Club.
Special thanks to Kevin Britton, assistant athletics director for communications & branding of EKU, for this information.
Footnote: When I read this I thought EKU had a bad day, but Kevin informed me that team score of 921 was the 32nd-best score in program history. The field was loaded and the golf gods were not smiling for EKU those two days.
Keep that great game going ladies.
Boldy going nowhere.
