World Woods Golf Course outside of Brooksville, Florida, proved to be the perfect venue for the 6th annual USGTF Southeast Region Championship, played August 3-4.  Both courses at the 36-hole facility are rated among Florida’s top ten, and the Pine Barrens course is ranked as one of America’s top 100 by Golf Magazine.  The weather was outstanding, and the field was the largest ever with 17 participants. Mark Harman, from Ridgeland, South Carolina, captured the title with scores of 74-71 – 145, outdistancing Jim Peters and Michael Taylor, who tied for second at 156.  One of the highlights of the tournament was a hole-in-one by USGTF president Geoff Bryant on the 16th hole during the first round. Southeast Region director Mike Stevens hosted a dinner Saturday night in Crystal River and conducted the annual meeting.  The site of next year’s event will be determined at a later date. USGTF Northeast Region Championship. The Northeast Region Tournament was held August 10, under sunny skies and temperatures in the low 70s.  Ed Williams once again emerged as the champion, successfully defending his title with a 74 at Jack Frost National in Blakeslee, Pennsylvania.  The course played soft due to five inches of rain the previous day, but the greens maintained their speed, Stimping at 11 1/2.  Other winners were Indrid Narken, Ladies, with a 78; Joe Casey, 60 and over, with a 79; Andy Pierson, under 50; and John Savage, Super Senior.
