A golfer from southeast Washington, Vince Jiminez from College Place, recorded the lowest gross score of 141 strokes among 68 golfers who competed last Friday through Sunday in the Annual Elks Golf Tournament held at Alpine Meadows Golf Course, in Enterprise.
Two golfers from Enterprise, Austin Livingston and Dakota Hull, tied for second place one stroke behind Jiminez with two-day totals of 142, two strokes below par.
The tournament was played in three flights with more than 20 golfers competing in each flight. Awards were given to low gross golfers and low net golfers, the latter to golfers after their totals were matched with their respective handicaps.
Terry Lamb of Enterprise, who helped coordinate the tournament, said, It was a good tournament. We had a little bad weather Saturday, (when a few players had their final two holes rained out) but all and all we were pleased.
Low net winners in the first flight were: 1st Sam Morgan, of Enterprise; 2nd Mike Crawford, of Enterprise; 3rd Jay Collman, of La Grande.
Second flight low gross winner was Albin Presley, of La Grande, with Howard Talbott of Portland and Tim Gilbert of Pendleton tying for second.
Low net finishers in Flight 2 were: 1st Pete Fallow, of La Grande; 2nd Dan Cornett, of Joseph; and 3rd Kirk McGraw, of West Linn.
The low gross winner from the third flight was Calvin Word, from Enterprise. Finishing behind Word for low gross honors in that flight were two golfers from Pendleton, 2nd Mike Walborn and 3rd Carl Peterson.
Winning low net honors from flight three, from first through third were: Ashley Prince, Enterprise; Chris Peterson, Pendleton, and Terry McArtor, Lostine.
