Stroke play tournament washed out Sunday

Scarbrough takes scratch division

CROSSVILLE — The second Cumberland County stroke play golf tournament was reduced to a one-day tournament, after rain washed out Sunday's second round at Heatherhurst Golf Course, using Saturday's scores from Lake Tansi to determine the winners.

"I want to thank Billy Loggins and the city of Crossville for helping promote golf  within all of our county and the entire state of Tennessee," said Heatherhurst head professional Jeff Houston.

"They were a very valuable sponsor in our event providing the lunches and plaques for the players. I also want to thank Matt Phipps and Lake Tansi Golf Course for hosting the first round of our Cumberland County stroke play championship. Our goal was to create a stroke play event for players who want to play their own ball by the U.S.G.A. Rules of Golf.  We want to continue rotating the event between the courses in the county so we can have a true county champion in all divisions. Steve Kraft (Fairfield Glade director of golf) and Heatherhurst Golf Course superintendent Mark Knaebel should be complimented for their super support of the event. Congratulations should also be extended to Todd Mathews, the golf course superintendent at Lake Tansi, for the wonderful playing conditions at Tansi on Saturday." 

Spencer Scarbrough won the scratch division with a one-over-par 73. Former SMHS golfer Jake Dailey won second place in a scorecard playoff with Tracy Graham. Both finished with two-over-par 74s.

Senior golfer Tony Cox was fourth with a 75 and received a special prize from Houston. He was the lone senior golfer in the scratch division.

Rounding out the field were Cox (75), Kyle Jackman (77), Ronald Allred (78), Dale Wheeler (81), Jordan Vance (84), Josh VanWinkle (93) and Chase Allred (109).

Jean Kraft won the ladies division with a low net score of four-under-par 68, while Sue Allen won second place in a scorecard place off with Sonya Rimmer. Both Allen and Rimmer finished with 69s.

Rounding out the field were Leslie Letner (72), Chris Kencitzski (74), Tina Wheeler (75) and Fran Hopp (82). Kencitzki was the 2013 champion.

Ron Riede won the men's handicap division with a low net, six-under-par 66, followed by Tim Jones (71), Ben Brooks (72) and Dave Hickey (73).

Rounding out the field were Gary Lively (75), Edward Eller (81), Ron Ford 982), Walt Renton (83), Keith Burgess (84) and Shae Keyes (87).

Kermit Selvig won the senior handicap division with a low net, six-under-par 66, followed by George White (67) and Howard Swan (70).

Rounding out the field were John Partain (71), Eddie Liskovec (71), Derek Cranfield (73), John Manning (78) and Tom Prieur (81).
