KELLEY: Congratulations to club champions

Cardwell survives first stage of LPGA Q-school.

Each year, members of golf courses across the country look forward to their annual club champion-ships. Some clubs across the country bestow special honors on their champions perhaps with a prominent and convenient parking space. I am not aware of any of those special perks being applied here, but the prestige of being the club champ is enough to draw in participants. It usually is.

However, this year, two of the local clubs did not hold a club championship. Earl Howard reports that there wasn’t a lot of interest at Green Acres. There is a remote possibility that it could still be held sometime in October. American Legion professional Bob Balsbaugh reports that he had about seven men signed up but one of them needed to drop out. So they also cancelled due to lack of interest.

The good news is that club championships were held at three of our local courses with good participation. Chippendale drew 41 men and nine women for a total of 50 players. Wildcat Creek had 36 participants of which nine were women.

Tennis Guyer captured his first club championship with rounds of 68 and 72 at the Kokomo Country Club for an even-par score of 140. Two-time Howard County champion Kyle Dunphy captured the Chippendale title with a score of nine-over 155. John Hodson captured his first Wildcat championship with his score of seven-over 151. It had been 24 years since Hodson’s previous club championship, that being at Chippendale in 1989.

Of this year’s county champions, only Ellen Hart was able to double up and add a club championship to her 2013 accomplishments. Nick Wooley couldn’t quite pull off the feat.

Here is a summary of all the champions. Congratulations to all of them! And next year — be sure to enter your club championship!

It was easy to tell as a red rash covered her arms and her face was painfully swollen. She is one of those people who loves being outdoors yet highly allergic to the common plant. Sometimes I believe she can get the rash by simply looking at the noxious weed.
