Of King of Clubs Senior Golf Tour
BELFAST – Ron Garrett of Brudenell might be another year older, but his game is still in great shape.
Garrett shot an 80 to lead the field in the King of Clubs Senior Golf Tour’s season-opening event at the Highland Greens Golf Course on Tuesday.
Two tour newcomers from Mill River, Randy Bernard and Dave Clark, were just one stroke behind Garrett.
Jim Kinnee of the host club finished with an 82 to win the Super Senior Division. Wynn Meldrum was next with an 85 score.
In an effort to increase the speed of play, a special prize was awarded to the group of Kinnee, Len MacLellan (Andersons Creek), Barry White (Brudenell) and Joe Richard (Fox Meadow) that had the fastest time.
A special prize was awarded to Merrill Scott (Avondale) for having the most improvement from the first nine to the second nine on this nine-hole course.
Overall, 35 male golfers competed.
The next tour event will be held at Andersons Creek Golf Course on Thursday. This tournament was originally scheduled for May 12, but had to be postponed due to poor weather.
The third stop on the tour will be at Avondale on Monday, May 26.
