County golfers have busy week

ANDERSON — The members of the Madison County Junior Golf Tour are hitting the summer home stretch this week with three rounds in two different events.

The tour stopped Wednesday at Grandview Golf Course for a one-day tournament. Today and Friday, the golfers will play for two days at The Edge.

"Unfortunately, some courses want us to play later in the day," said MCJGT director Kendall Stalnaker. "I have no problem with that. Edgewood allowed us to play a two-day event. That's great for us. It gives the players a chance to bounce back if they have an off day."

Wednesday's round was threatened by weather for about 10 minutes, but the golfers played through it.

"We heard some thunder, but it was past us," said Stalnaker. "I went out and told each one of the groups what I saw on the radar and told them it would go through and then it would clear up. We had no problems."

The junior golf program was in danger of falling off the summer schedule a few years back, but Stalnaker helped to keep the tournaments running.

"We have about the same number of golfers as we had last year," said Stalnaker, but he admitted that the makeup is a bit different. "We don't have as many high schoolers. But we have a lot of intermediate and younger kids."

The MCJGT is a solid opportunity for young golfers to become immersed in the tournament experience.

"It costs a bit less than some other tours ($200 compared to $12), and you don't have an hour drive to get there," said Stalnaker. "There's not as much pressure. It's less demanding and more fun. We try to group people together by their skill level. We always want everyone to be able to play, even if they are just starting out.

He threw his mouthguard away in anger and attempted to walk off the injury with trainers away from the rest of his teammates.

  • SPT - HB0731 - Colts Camp - Fleener - 206 Colts focusing on situational improvement One year ago, the focus in Indianapolis Colts training camp was on turnovers. The team had committed far too many in 2012 and was determined not to repeat its mistakes. The theme at Anderson University carried over to the field, and the Colts' 14 turnovers were the fewest in the NFL last year.
