Given to Fly: Final rounds of men’s city tournament full of excitement

This weekend’s final two rounds of the men’s city tournament should provide some interesting story lines.

Tom Jones set himself up in great position to win his seventh title with a 68 at Hulman Links on Sunday.

Last year’s champ, Dave Brown, enjoyed playing with his long-time playing partner. Brown, who shot a 72 on Sunday to fall 11 shots behind Jones, was also not surprised to see six-time champion Ted Kaperak within three shots.

Like much of the field, those two players qualify to play in the Terre Haute Senior City tournament.

“It’s good to see us old guys play good,” Brown said. “It’s nice playing with Tom, he’s a lot of fun to watch.”

Some of the younger generations had good days Sunday as well, especially 23-year-old Stu Johnson, finishing off the day with a tournament-best 67. It should be interesting to see if Johnson can continue to play a relaxed round of golf with the leaders of the tournament. He played the first two rounds with his buddies Jon Royer, John Trierweiler and Devon Klutey.

Several other players had better scores at Hulman than at Rea Park, which is the exception of the 196-player field.

Fourteen-year-old Shelby Stewart was one of those players, making five birdies Sunday on his way to a 76. Stewart shot an 80 at Rea Park.

Current Terre Haute South golfer Phillip Myers had one of the best rounds Sunday at Hulman with a 72 after shooting a 79 at Rea, making the biggest improvement from Rea Park to Hulman.

Another young golfer, Northview graduate Tyler Akers, shot his second 75 of the tournament.
