Rub of the Green: Holloway set bar for Valley’s young female golfers


Kelli has just been promoted to a position titled Tournament Coordinator. Now she will fly to various tournament sites around the country.

Oddly enough, Kelli indicates she doesn’t have time to play much golf although she recently had the opportunity to play Victoria National, one of the Midwest’s outstanding courses near Evansville.

Kelli gives much credit to her parents, Patty and Jon for the successes she has experienced in golf and in life. Patty is a registered nurse at Regional Hospital where she has worked for 18 years.

Jon has been head golf professional at Rea Park and Hulman Links at various times besides serving as Terre Haute’s Golf Director. He is now General Manager of CMP Properties where he oversees operations of Fore Seasons and Bogey’s.

There is little doubt that Kelli Holloway is on the fast track to an outstanding career in the golf spectrum where even “the sky may not be her limit.”

• Ron “Pappy” Poore demonstrated a week ago that he still knows his way around a golf course when he fired a smooth 68 from regulation tees at The Landing. Poore captured the ever popular Lawrenceville Amateur Championship a few years back. Well, maybe more that a “few”. Time does fly, but Pappy Poore’s golf swing is still solid.

• Amiable restaurateur, Mark Roman, knew how to lead his scramble team to the winner’s circle in the recent Cannon Tourney at The Landing.

Mark was faced with a short pitch over the small pond on number four when his golf ball landed in the rocks that surround the green. Ninety-nine times out of one hundred the ball finishes in the water, but this time the ball popped up on the green and rolled directly into the cup. The eagle three helped his squad to a one shot victory. Happy members of the team along with Mark included Lee Shipley, Kent Robertson, Tony Maddox and Mike Wilson.
