Golf: Tutton has one-shot lead in Legends Cup

Warren Tutton has a one-shot lead after the first round of the annual Legends Cup tournament at the Niagara-on-the-Lake Golf Club.

The Legends is an 18-hole total score competition played over consecutive Tuesdays – but it is restricted to players aged 80 and up.

This year 18 players are competing, organizer Bill Katrynuk said.

The smooth-swinging Tutton carded a 4-over 40 this week, one shot ahead of defending Legends champ Doug McCulloch.

Close behind were Daryl Fry (43), Kerry Knapp (44) and Jim Cosgrove and Gerry Shelly (46).

The final round in the tourney is set for next Tuesday.

Meanwhile, in WOOFs league play on July 27, Don Allen was low gross winner with a 38. Charlie Rate took low net with a 34.

Martin Vagners was closest to the pin on #4 and Brian Heer's birdie on #6 won the hidden hole. Larry Heim won $50 in the 50/50 draw.

Women's results: This Tuesday's 18 hole women's league play was cut short by thunderstorms for many participants. 

The women earned points for hitting their drives in the fairway and then subtracted points for each putt needed to finish the hole.

The winners were: Cathy Murray, 17 points ($20), Susan Gagne, 14 points ($15), whiile Ginny Green and Kim Hrycko earned 12 points each ($10).

The weather pre-empted the 9 hole women's league.

Men's results: The leaderboard for Thursday's men's league was crowded on July 22.

Sean Simpson led the pack with 23 points under the modified Stableford scoring system. Sam Ridesic was right behind with 22 points.

Tied for third with 21 were Martin Vagners, Norm Kerr and Randy Churchill. Next up, with 20 points, were Michael Berlis, David Gagne and Greg Keldson.

Former men's champion Joe Doria won a $100 gross skin for a birdie on #3 and Larry Mantle scooped one with a bird on #6. No net skins were won, so the cash prize will carry over to this week.
