The Avenue News - - NEWS -

With a clos­ing flurry of three birdies and an ea­gle, Jor­dan Spi­eth won the his­toric Bri­tish Open on Sun­day, July 23 in dra­matic style.

The very next day, the golf ex­cite­ment con­tin­ued more than 3,600 miles away dur­ing the Oak Crest Golf Tour­na­ment held at Rocky Point Golf Course in eastern Bal­ti­more County.

Af­ter a brief shower in the morn­ing, the clouds melted away to un­veil a gor­geous sum­mer day. More than 120 peo­ple en­tered the cap­tain’s choice scram­ble event, a com­bi­na­tion of res­i­dents, ven­dors and em­ploy­ees.

Ac­cord­ing to Stacey Schi­ano, Philanthropy Man­ager at Oak Crest, the event net­ted more than $22,000 for the Benev­o­lent Care Fund of the Erick­son Liv­ing com­mu­nity.

Fol­low­ing some ex­cep­tional shots and great putting on the course, the day con­cluded with a de­li­cious grilled lunch catered by Jerry D’s Sa­loon and an awards cer­e­mony rec­og­niz­ing the

top four­somes and in­di­vid­ual golfers who con­quered the course.
