Rub of the Green: Looking back at nearly 90 years of Kaperak excellence in Indiana, Illinois golf



But wait a minute. There’s more to this story.

In the event you might think local golf courses are running out of Kaperaks, you could be mistaken. After all, Dennis Kaperak’s three children are not just casual golfers. Less than a week ago, James recorded a nifty 67 at River Bend at The Landing. With Jessie playing for North Vigo and seven-year old Kalea owning her own set of golf clubs, it may be some time before the Kaperak name fails to grace the sports section of the Terre Haute Tribune Star.

• Ed Grayless, No. 1 assistant to Ryan Klopfenstein, wants the city’s top players to put the Mini City Tourney on their schedules. The highly popular event is slated for July 11 and 12. Call Hulman Links at (812) 877-2096.

• The Breakfast Optimist Club Brazil Open Junior Golf Tourney will be played Monday, July 13 at Forest Park. Entry fee is $20, which includes lunch, goody bag, all day snacks, pizza and pool party for family and friends. For further particulars call John Tribble at (812) 442-5681.

• Kent “Cosmo” Robertson has assumed the “most improved” distinction at River Bend at The Landing. The big hitter has put together a number of solid rounds in the 70s with a game that gets better all the time.

n Jack Myers first shot his age 11 years ago, a smooth 65 from the regulation tees at Elks Fort Harrison Country Club. A couple of weeks ago he bettered his age by seven shots with a nifty 69 from senior tees. Some players won’t allow father time to dictate to them. Myers is certainly one who fails to pay attention to the calendar.

• TIP OF THE WEEK: Any time you create too much pressure with your hands, your forearms will have the tendency to become stiff, and this may impede your swing. Keep the left arm straight, but relaxed. Keep your right hand grip relaxed (opposite for lefties).
