SMGCC Golf Member Parsons Wins Senior Men's Invite in a Playoff

Almost 120 Golfers Took Part Last Wednesday at the Club

The annual Senior Men’s Golf Invitational tournament was decided in a playoff for the second year in a row Wednesday at the St. Marys Golf and Country Club.

This year, St. Marys Golf & Country Club member Rich Parsons won the event on the first playoff hole (par 4 No. 10). Both he and Londoner John Malcolm finished the regulation 18 holes with one-over-par scores of 73.

Parsons, a previous winner of the event, said it was the best golf he’s played to date this season.

“I started out bad though; I was two-over (par) after three holes,” he told the Journal Argus. “Then I started playing really well, but I didn’t putt well.

“I made one long putt (for birdie on No. 14) which helped me. It came after I bogeyed No. 12.

“I played pretty steady. I’ve had a couple of lower scores this year, but that wind was blowing pretty good (Wednesday). It was two extra clubs going into that west wind.”

The various age bracket flight winners are as follows:

Dana Milligan shot a 74 to win the 50-55 age group. Mark McGugan had the best net score (68).

John Malcolm (73) tied for the best score in the 56-60 age group. Don Hodgins posted the top net score (64).

Rod Dench won the 61-65 age group with a 76, one shot better than St. Marys Golf & C.C. veteran Jim Craigmile. Lefty Bob Mills, another St. Marys Golf & C.C. member, had the best net score (71). Craigmile had an eagle 2 on the par 4 No. 5 hole Wednesday. He canned his approach shot from 137 yards out from the middle of the fairway.

London native John Herbert won the 66-70 age group with a score of 78. Brian Cain had the best net score (69).

Cal George topped the field with a score of 80 in the 71-and-up division. Dick Harback posted the best net score (67).

Tourney notes:

--A total of 119 golfers played Wednesday (one of the biggest Senior fields in recent memory at St. Marys)
