THREE GOLFERS SHOOT IN THE 70S

Chip Hemphill, who asked Senior Olympics officials to see to it he was entered in archery and golf, was right on target Monday at Querbes Park, posting the best score of all contestants in golf.

Hemphill, in the 50-54 age bracket, shot a 73 on nines of 35-38 in winning medalist honors by four shots over Dwayne Pickett who toured Querbes in 37-40–77. Ricky Dunn was third in medal scoring with a 41-37–78 in a tournament that could boast the most scores ever in the 70s in the 25-year history of the Northwest Louisiana District Senior Olympics.

It was a big weekend for Hemphill as on Saturday he won a silver medal in archery’s male compound release (50-54 age group) with an 868, second highest individual score of the day.

In a change from years past, golf coordinators Richard Beall and Vickie Mericle returned the tournament to the venerable old public course and held the chip and putt competition after the golf championship. It made for a long day, but there were few complaints from the golfers, who were treated to lunch and given goodie bags, made possible by the generosity of local merchants Home Depot, Edwin Watts Golf, Academy Sports, Gerrison’s Nursery, Outback Steakhouse, Fishing Frenzy, Brookshires and Julie Anne’s Bakery.
