CROSSVILLE — Jim Goins, Farrell Odom, Everette Cook and Bill Nicholl won the rain-shortened annual Hospice Golf Tournament played last Wednesday afternoon at the Lake  Tansi Golf Course.

With just two or three holes left in the round, the 32 teams were called off the golf course has inclement weather moved onto the Plateau, forcing the tournament to cut back to 15 holes. The shotgun start put teams on different holes to open play just before 1 p.m.

Goins' team finished at 13 under par. Virgil Ferguson, John Beck, Hoss Wyatt and Dan Boggs won second place in a draw over Tom Landry, Harold Shultz, Bob Schaffer and B. Horstkotte and Kris Burk, Dennis Sassenger, Rip Purser and Bruce Barents. All three teams finished at nine under par.

Since only 15 holes were completed, a scorecard playoff could not be used.
