Blue Heron hosts Jack Stewart Tournament
Members of the Blue Heron Senior Men’s Golf League turned out for a golf tournament to honor Mr. Jack Stewart, on Thursday, May 18. At 93, Stewart is the oldest living member of the local golf league and still enjoys getting out to play.
The tournament, played on a sunny morning, was a straight handicap event that placed the five highest net winners, and included a hole that awarded the golfer whose second shot ended up closest to the pin. The net score for each golfer was calculated using the player’s individual league handicap.
George Yount and Ron Taylor tied for first place, while Mark Doran, Tony Rossi and Bo MacNeal rounded out the top five.
The closest to the pin contest was played on the 187-yard, par3, third hole. Landing his second shot just ¾ of an inch away from the pin was winner Ed Mathais.
Finally, the tournament was finished off with a short awards presentation and pizza luncheon.
The Blue Heron Senior Men’s Golf League meets 9 a.m., every Thursday morning from the first Thursday in April through the end of October. The league welcomes golfers, regardless of ability or skill level, who are 50 years and older.
