Bill JacksonBill JacksonEagle Ridge Golf League News

The Weather was beautiful, the temperature was perfect, and, Eagle Ridge was great! The question; where were the Scores?


On Tuesday afternoon we had what was probably the best day we will have this season for playing golf. It was warm but comfortable, and the ball was carrying well. So it seems that the scores would be like last week when a new league record was set. But that was not the case, we only had 4 net tallies under par. Ronnie Wellman (32), Bill Jackson (33), Dustin Kingsmore (33), and Charlie Curnutte (34). The low gross was a 3 over par. However, never fret, I was there for the shot of the day or, maybe the stroke of the year. Our intrepid Ronnie Wellman, on hole number 2, scored an eagle (2 under par) from a little over 100 yards. To explain his shot, he put the ball right in the hole. And I was there to see the whole thing; it certainly impressed me! Ronnie’s stroke was the equivalent of a hole in one on a par 3.

Although we did not have the low scores of the week before, in addition to Ronnie’s eagle, Brad Lafferty had the longest putt for the night with a stroke from between 50 and 60 feet. This was the longest putt made this year. When I approached the green and saw the length of his putt, I knew I had no chance of bettering his stroke. Great shot Brad!

As I stated last week, it would be interesting to see if these great scores can be carried forward or whether Eagle Ridge will come back and “bite” us again. I predicted the latter would happen. Also, when the average strokes of the front nine and the back nine are compared, this year has proven what I have always believed. The front is more difficult than the back.

Now for the scores and the highlights for June 5.

Two weeks ago we ran an article from the Kentucky High School Athletics Association concerning a new program that awards students who participate in multiple sports at their schools.  Eligible student-athletes must participate in THREE different sports during the school year, one in Fall, one in Winter and one in Spring.

It's appropriately called, The Triple Threat Award.

This is the first year in which the awards have been given and lo and behold my middle Grayson granddaughter, 13 year-old Allicen Grayson, a rising freshman at Martin Co. High School (SCHS), got one of the first awards!


I don't know how many of these awards were given out in Martin County, or for that matter, any school in Ky., but I do know I'm awfully proud to be the papaw of one of the Allicen is shown with her dad and my son, Kraig Grayson, a three sport standout at SCHS in his high school days.Allicen is shown with her dad and my son, Kraig Grayson, a three sport standout at SCHS in his high school days.first year award winners. Alli played varsity volleyball, cheerleading (her team won the regionals for the second straight year) and softball this year and will do the same next season.

She is the daughter of Kraig and Christy Grayson of Inez, and also the grandaughter of Larry and Illene Smith of Warfield, Ky. and Mark and Glenda Grayson of Louisa.

All that while earning a 4.0 GPA, participating in Dance, ETC.'s elite dance team, and also being a member of her school's Beta Club.

If you have a son or daughter or grandkids who earned this award, send a photo of her/him holding their awards and we will post them in
