Record Observer - - Sports -

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.
