KELLEY: Golfers cure cabin fever

Volunteers helped clean up American Legion G.C. after last fall's tornado

(Continued)

Who will step up and represent Kokomo this year?

MASTERS CUT LINE

Each year the Masters sets the cut line at 50 players plus ties or those within 10 strokes of the lead. Most PGA Tour events will take 72 players plus ties. Fan favorite Phil Mickelson missed the cut by a single stroke after shooting 5-over par for the first 36 holes. Had he still been in the field, he could have shot a 65 and 66 to tie the ultimate champion Bubba Watson. Maybe the Masters should consider widening the number of players for the weekend. After all, these players would still have a small chance of winning and wouldn’t that make a spectacular story!

MASTERS FOR LEFTIES

Watson captured his second Masters this year. So now left-handers have won six of the last 12 Master’s titles. The shot shape needed to play well is a right-to-left one which for lefties is a controllable fade. Bubba’s 360-yard blast on the par-5 13th hole set up a wedge to the green. Will the next set of course modifications make it tougher for lefties? Will they now “Bubba-proof” it like they tried to “Tiger-proof” it?

THE OTHER WOODS

A well-known Woods has won another golf tournament already this year. But it wasn’t Tiger! It was his niece Cheyenne. In February, she captured the Ladies European Tour Volvik RACV Australian Ladies Masters title. How’s that for a long name?The 23-year old finished 16-under par to win her first title on a major professional tour. Woods failed to win her 2014 LPGA Tour card in December at Q-School so she will continue her career on the Symetra Tour.

BOUGHER GOLF STORY

Some of the golfing Delphi retirees out there will remember Gerry Bougher. He organized a couple of golf events each year, one of which was to the Speedway during the week leading up to the race. Paul Wagner tells a great Bougher story. For those of you that didn’t know Gerry, he was a little unusual, had a great sense of humor and had a stutter which seemed to make his storytelling even funnier.
