From the Short Grass for a great weekend to go play golf in Mid August!
More great feats from area golfers
We sparked a nerve reporting Gary Sult's back to back, hole in ones on #2 at NCR in last weeks edition.  So...here is another great feat from an area golfer.

On July 7th a new course record was shot at the Nipper Campbell designed, Eaton CC when Jake Tinsley had a 28.  Outstanding accomplishment to say the least, but to add to his string, over the last three weeks he has aced Hole #6 which plays at 154 yards on July 25th, 28th and again this past week.  WOW!!

The event has great support from the community and all proceeds go to Norma J Ross Memorial Foundation.  

Now in it's second decade, this is not your average fundraising event as it also qualifiers the Low Net and Low Gross Scorer for the National Mercedes Benz Dealer Championship.

Congratulations to all who made this event such a success and to Bill Dorward and Ryan Reichoff for qualifying.  Best of luck to these two gentlemen as they head to Pinehurst in October.

Late Summer's the Time for Senior Golf 
We don't know if it's because it takes people of a certain age more time to get ready, or the younger folks head back to school, but Championship Senior Golf does not really get going until August in Ohio.

Congratulations to Ken Kinkopf for winning the Ohio Senior Amateur this past week at Elyria CC.  From our area, Ron Eubel, our Sr Player of the Year last year, was our strongest finisher as he finished in a tie for 6th.

Our Senior Metropolitan and Mid Amateur Championship is the Tuesday and Wednesday after Labor Day at Springfield Country Club.
