Karl Stewart, 66, of Riverside, Calif., became the latest super senior to outplay his younger, senior amateur counterparts when he captured the inaugural Golfweek/Harmony Senior Championship on Wednesday at Harmony Club in Timnath, Colo.

Stewart’s 7-under 209 was four shots clear of Greg Mokler, a member at Harmony, and five better than Mike Brummer, of Rapid City, S.D.

Stewart, also the super senior champion, made 11 birdies and one eagle against only four bogeys and a double on the 6,680-yard layout. His ball striking was superb, as all his over-par holes included three putts.

Mokler eagled the final hole of the tournament to top Brummer’s birdie and earn low senior honors by a shot.

Marvin White, 75, also from Rapid City, was runner-up in the super senior division and finished fifth overall. He broke his age the first two rounds and his first-round 70 included seven birdies. readers: We value your input and welcome your comments, but please be respectful in this forum.
