Lloyd, Pitts and Harrow win golf championships

From left are men’s champion Greg Harrow, women’s champion Carole Lloyd, senior champion Jimmy Pitts and Piankatank River Golf Club pro Justin Williams.
Piankatank River Golf Club held its 13th Club Championship September 12-13. 

Carole Lloyd had two solid days of golf to capture her 8th Ladies Club Championship with an 83-79—162.

Jimmy Pitts had to battle an early back injury, which made it difficult for him to move, but he played well and defended his Senior Club Championship with an 80-83—163.

It came down to the last hole of the competition in the Men’s Club Championship.  There was a three-way tie between Larry Collier, Chris Hudgins and Greg Harrow. After a wayward tee shot, Hudgins had to lay up on his second shot.  Both Collier and Harrow hit good second shots to the green. 

Harrow had a 30-foot uphill putt with movement to the right.  Collier was just to the right of the pin about 20 feet with a slippery downhill putt. 

Harrow showed great confidence in sinking his putt for a birdie 3 as the crowd watched and cheered. 

Collier still had a chance to tie Harrow and send the tournament into a playoff.  He made a confident stroke but it wasn’t meant to be as the putt slipped by the hole.

Harrow was the new Piankatank River Golf Club Champion for 2009 with a final score of 84-77—161.
