The La Junta Seniors Golf League hosted its weekly tournament last Tuesday at the La Junta Municipal Golf Course.


This week, there were 27 players which were divided into nine three-person teams. It was a scramble format and a hand toss game.


The team of Janet Golding, Max Romero and Jay Bollacker won the tournament with a 26, and Clark Claycomb, Bob Malden and Don Overmyer were second with a 28.


There was a three-way tie for third place. The threesome of Fred Boettcher, Mark Johnston and Mike Bauserman, the trio of Rod Soden, Doug Golding and Bob May, and the team of Jim Baird, Gary Armitage and Claudia Conley all recorded a 29.


CaSandra Thomas, Chris Malden and Jerry Lambert were sixth with 30.


There was also a tie for seventh place. The trio of Mark Herrera, Marvin Kibler and Lyle Lough, and the threesome of Mary Lou Day, Mackey O'Neal and Paul Roman both shot a 32.


Rounding out the scoring were Loren Johnson, Cathy Bollacker and Alan Root, which finished ninth with a 33.


An added marker was found on the third green and golfer putted to the hole from that marker. Lambert, Bollacker, Malden and Johnson all made the putt.


Another marker was found near the fourth green and golfers chipped to the hole from that marker. Claycomb made the chip-in from that point.


The La Junta Seniors Golf League meets every Tuesday. There is a meeting at 8:30 a.m. outside the clubhouse, and play begins at 9 a.m.
