Carter wins Old Corkscrew Senior

Monday, January 9, 2012

ESTERO, Fla. - Ron Carter won the Old Corkscrew Senior Championship’s senior division with a par on the third hole of a playoff with fellow Indiana player Sam Till Jr. Both finished at 229 after 54 holes. Michigan’s Bill Zylstra was third at 231.

Ted Smith, another Indiana resident, was the super senior champion with a three-round total of 234. Fred Silver, and another Hoosier Jerry Caplinger, tied for second at 238.

Unseasonably cold weather (temperatures dropped into the high 30s) and wind gusts of up to 30 mph caused the scores to soar at the Jack Nicklaus Signature course. readers: We value your input and welcome your comments, but please be respectful in this forum.
