Ron Cox from Nashville, Tennessee, crossed the Mason-Dixon line to capture the USGTF Central Region Championship held July 31-August 1 at The Grizzly Course in Mason, Ohio, just north of Cincinnati. Cox fired 69-67 – 136 to edge another Southerner, Mark Harman from Ridgeland, South Carolina, by two strokes. Both golfers were tied at -5 heading into the 36th hole when Cox made birdie to Harman’s bogey. Tony McMullin, Central Region director, set the pace with an opening 66 for the tournament’s low round and finished in 3rd. Jose Estevez was the fourth player under par and finished 4th. Matt Smith aced the 16th hole the second day to continue the fireworks. Region championship play has now been concluded for the season.
