It’s just another verse of the same old song in NW La. District Senior Olympics Miniature Golf at Party Central in Bossier City May 15.

Bob Taylor gives chase but Harold Harvill always puts together a round that is one shot better than Taylor’s. This time Taylor fashioned a five-over par 41 in the men’s 75-79 age bracket. “But Harold shot a 40,’ Taylor lamented. “One shot difference in his favor. It always seems to turn out that way,” Taylor said, recalling that he has targeted Harvill for several years in the event but has yet to beat him for the low round of the evening.

It’s no disgrace, considering Harvill’s history. When miniature golf was sweeping the nation in a wave of popularity in the ’60s, Harvill was among the best players in the area, taking part in national and southern tournaments. Taylor really zeroed in on miniature golf only in the Senior Olympics.

Female Gold Medals went to Doris Carter, Linda Johnson, Peggy Chilton, Kay Aldrich and Atlean Snow.

Robert Lachman, Steve Pinkley and Jerry Warren won age-group Golds on the male side.
