Friday, at Arlington, sixty-eight golfers teed it up in the 11th Annual James McChesney Memorial Golf Classic. This event is hosted by Dr. Jon McChesney, Chair of the Department of Recreation and Park Administration, with proceeds going to the James McChesney Scholarship at EKU. The late Dr. James McChesney was the first Chair of this department dating back to 1966.

Stepping into the winners’ circle at the end of a beautiful rain-free day was a team from the Richmond Church of Christ composed of Ron Murray, Drew Alexander and Brian Montgomery. They nosed out the Kentucky State Parks team, headed by Deputy Commissioner Steve Brooks, by one shot. The team of Fort Know Morale, Welfare and Recreation team, headed by EKU Alum Randy Moore, also tied for second with one shot behind.

After play, the participants were treated to a delicious dinner at the Mule Barn provided by Jeff Gillum and Gillum’s Sports Lounge. It was a great ending of a fun day on the links.

Dr. Jon McChesney expressed his gratitude to all the players and said to give a big thanks to Patrick Williams, Golf Pro at Arlington, for all of his assistance. Thanks to you Dr. McChesney for the info on this tourney.

EKU women take fourth at OVC

The EKU women didn’t bring their “A” game to the course on the final day Saturday and slipped from third place to fourth in the OVC Championship in Dickson, Tennessee.

Morehead State (890) captured its first OVC title. Murray State placed second (904) and Jacksonville State (924) finished third, eight shots ahead of EKU (932). Fifth-place Austin Peay finished 16 shots behind EKU and Eastern Illinois (978), Tennessee Tech (981) and Tennessee State (1084) rounded out the field of eight.

Katie Widmar led the Colonels Saturday with a stellar round of 75, her best of the tournament. Her round helped move her from a tie for 16th to a tie for 11th with a three-round total of 232. Teammate Linda Hogberg (232) also tied for 11th after a final round of 79.

April Emerson dropped from a tie for sixth to a tie for 18th after a final round 82. She finished with a three-round total of 233. Kara Fant (236) tied for 15th and Lisanne Schmidt (240) tied for 21st.

The Colonels’ next action will be in the NCAA Regionals, time and place to be announced in May.

Schmidt selected All-OVC

At an annual awards banquet last Thursday, preceding the OVC tourney, Schmidt was selected to the 2010-11 All Ohio Valley Conference Second Team.

She had three top ten finishes this season and had the lowest stroke average on EKU’s team at 77.4. She had the ninth-best stroke average in the OVC.

Lisanne is a junior at EKU and hails from Grantham, New Hampshire.  Congratulations on a great ball striking season. You da Lady!

Ramblings

Golf can be such a cruel game sometime.  Sunday, Luke Donald had a chance to move into the No. 1 ranking in the world, but Brandt Snedeker shot a sizzling 7-under par 64 to come from six shots back of Donald to get into a playoff with him.

On the first playoff hole, Donald rolled in an eleven-foot putt for birdie then watched as Snedeker calmly knocked in a ten footer to tie him.  Ouch!

 It was not to be for Donald as he splacked a fried egg lie in a trap and lost on the second playoff hole.

He did give it the old college though when his chip for par rimmed out. 

Upcoming events

Final thought

If you have food in your refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof over your head and a place to sleep, you are richer than 75% of this world. 

Until next week … Live, love, laugh and learn, Glenmore.
