Burleson golfers eat up Meals on Wheels tourney
Burleson golfers distinguished themselves in a crowded field of players to win titles in the 30th annual Meals On Wheels Golf Benefit played Sept. 14 at Cleburne Golf Links.
Howard Wright hit it closest-to-the-pin in the morning flight and David Martin stuck it closest in the afternoon flight to win those on-course contests, while the Citizens National Bank Burleson team of Rhyan Anderson, Jeremy Glanzer and Paul Williams took first place in the First Flight division.
Baker Foundation of Burleson was the title sponsor for the tourney that raised more than $102,000 that will provide about 222,000 meals for needy seniors in the Johnson and Ellis counties, according to a media release provided by MOW.
Golfers were fed by food provided by Atmos Energy and H-E-B.
In the Keene City Championship contested Oct. 22 at Hidden Creek Golf Course in Burleson, Keene ISD Supt. Ricky Stephens defended his title by sinking a 15-foot pressure putt on the second hole of a sudden-death playoff.
The event was limited to players who live or work in Keene, or graduated from any level school there.
Stephens and Southwestern Adventist University music professor Jonathan Wall finished regulation play tied at nine-over-par 81. They remained tied after the first playoff hole until Stephens drained his par putt.
Otherwise, the charity tournament season is over.
