Tony Webb

Holmes Beach resident Tony Webb took home first place in the Florida Senior Games golf competition. Webb shot a 76 at the Mirror Lakes Golf Club in Fort Myers  to win the 65-69 age division on Dec. 4.

Webb won the gold in a tie-breaker with Larry Rule of West Palm Beach. Both players shot 76, but Rule bogeyed the 13th hole while Webb had a par on the last six holes to award the gold to Webb. Webb defeated Bob Larson of Del Ray Beach by one stroke. Larson was the three-time defending state champion.

Webb qualified for the Florida Senior Games by winning a local competition at Buffalo Creek Golf Course.

Congratulations, Tony!

 

Horseshoe news

Three of the seven teams that played horseshoes on Dec. 5 emerged from pool play with 3-0 records to battle it out for the day’s bragging rights.

Ron Pepka and R.B. Munro defeated the team of Sam Samuels and John Johnson 26-16 to advance to the finals, where the team of Steve Doyle and Herb Puryear rolled to a 21-9 victory over Pepka-Johnson.

There was a three-team playoff on Dec. 1 as well, but this time one of the teams was the walking team of one, George McKay. McKay was unstoppable, defeating the team of Ron Slagh and Ron Pepka by a 23-11 score before rolling over the team of Sam Samuels and Art Kingstad by a 23-9 score.
