  • GOLF: Gillis makes championship...

    Anderson County resident Taylor Gillis found the third time really was a bit of a charm at the women's State Am golf tournament last week at Elizabethtown.

    Gillis, who now plays golf for the University of the Cumberlands, shot a 7-over 79 in the qualifying round, good enough to earn a berth in the championship flight of the top 32 scores at the Elizabethtown Country Club. But in the match-play championship bracket, Gillis ran into some tough luck and went out in the first round.

    Establishing small plots of clover throughout your hunting area can pay big dividends during deer and wild turkey seasons.

    Summer is a good time to start preparations for an initial planting in the fall.

  • ESPN Golf Challenge comes to...

    Nine teams of golfers from around Kentucky took part in the ESPN Golf Challenge, held at Wild Turkey Trace Golf Course on Saturday.

    While more twosomes had been expected to put their games on the line in the elimination tournament, Rick Hawkins, one of the course owners, was philosophical. “There is just a lot going on right now,” he said. “We are going to try again next year.”

    Hawkins teamed with Greg Pike to form the only local team in the event. Pike shot an 82 and Hawkins fired a 92, both near their normal scores.

    ELIZABETHTOWN – It’s taken Laurie Goodlett some 20 years to learn one very valuable golf secret.

    It doesn’t matter how far you drive the ball, it’s your short game that makes the difference.

    Armed with her old-school bull’s-eye putter, the 42-year-old Lawrenceburg resident stayed consistent on the fast, hard greens and sunk the 51st Lady Bug Invitational competition Saturday afternoon.

  • COLUMN: Missing the date an...

    For several days last week, my Twitter feed was busy with what seemed to be countless reminders about Saturday being the 40th anniversary of the signing of the Title IX law.

    I clicked on links to stories about the pioneers of women in sport in the 1960s who might have been much of the impetus for the landmark legislation. I even got some information about ESPN3 launching a new station, called ESPNW, showing nothing but women's sports.

  • BASEBALL: Mudcats improve summer...

    The Central Kentucky Mudcats improved their summer baseball record to 7-4-1 with three wins over the past week.

    “I have been impressed with the boys as out schedule is again strong and they have shown some maturity in those come-from-behind wins this past week,” said Mudcat coach Chris Copenhaver, who actually had to miss several of the Mudcats' games last week.

    The Mudcats also notched two wins over the Morse Mustangs, of Danville, and salvaged a tie in another game with the same club.
