King scores hole in one at city tournament

CROSSVILLE — The winners of the fall City of Crossville Golf Tournament played Oct. 2 were determined via scorecard playoffs, but the highlight of the tournament was a hole-in-one by former Tansi professional Aubrey King.

King, playing with Mayor J.H. Graham III, Bob Stackhouse and Jim Petty, used a driver to record an ace on the par 4, 270-yard, 11th hole. It took King 56 years to record the one in a million shot. He was the head professional at Lake Tansi for 37 years.

His son, Cody, who is now working as an assistant pro, was driving down the car path behind the 11th green, when he noticed a ball mark left near the pin.  When he looked into the hole there was his dad's ball. Then, he noticed the foursome coming down the fairway toward the green.

The ace helped King's team finish with a 16-under-par 56, but their score was not counted in the overall competition.

Sonya Rimmer, Leslie Letner, Sharon Kington and Jordan Vance won the first flight in a scorecard playoff over Ed Barnwell, Craig Wyatt, Ernest Barnwell and Kyle Turner. Both teams finished with a 15-under-par 57.

Before the second flight winners and runners-up were determined, a second playoff was used to place six teams who finished at 10-under-par 62.

The teams of Aaron Peters, Milton Brady, Pat Eberhart and Rocky Gora, and Tersa Lively, Travis Wilson, Nathan Lively and Gary Lively were placed into the first flight to help even the two flights.

Dale Wheeler, Tina Wheeler, Mike Mountain and Will Ballard were awarded the second flight win in the scorecard playoff over Tommy Waltman, Mike Dalton, Jim Hatler and Gerald Brewer.

The other two teams at 62 were Bill Matherly, Jim Goins, Dan Kington and Bill Nichols, and Frank Thierry, Charlie Barfield, Danny Plumlee and Doug Hanson.

There were special prizes awarded for closest to the pin and longest drive.

Closest to the pin winners were Nathan Lively (No. 3), Reggie Brown (No. 6), Tommy Waltman (No. 12) and Micah McShan (No. 15). Longest drive winners were Aubrey King (No. 9) and Tom Solberg (No. 16).

Several door prizes were given away after dinner.
