A Mother's Day weekend tradition continued this past Saturday and Sunday, May 10 and 11, as the Sugar Creek Country Club hosted its annual two-man scramble. This year a total of 29 teams took part in the scramble, and although no-one hit the big $10,000 prize for a hole-in-one on Sunday one of the golfers did record an ace.

Piggott State Bank sponsored the hole-in-one contest, putting up a $10,000 prize for anyone who could ace the par-three 11th hole Sunday. But, Jason MacDonald, of Jonesboro, did get a hole-in-one Sunday afternoon on the par three seventh. As his prize he has the choice between a new set of Callaway irons or $500.

Checking the results--

Taking first in the championship flight was the team of Daniel Gossett and Chad Stallcup, as they shot 61 and 59 the two days for a combined 120 and a five stroke win. Second was Wixson Huffstetler and Bart Burton with rounds of 62 and 63 for a 125. Meanwhile, there was a two-way tie for third between the teams of Joel Coomer and Jared Langley and Tyler Crittenden and Matt Kilbreath, as they both shot 127's. Coomer and Langley did so by shooting 62 and 65, while Crittenden and Kilbreath came back on Sunday with a 63 after carding a 64 on Saturday.

In the "A" flight first place went to Cody Knight and Mike Walker with a 132, after they shot 67 and 65. Meanwhile, Ashley McMillon and Brandon Stone shot 68 and 65 for a combined 133, for second place, and Travis Gossett and Jack Farmer Shot 66 and 68 for a combined 134 to take third.

And, in "B" flight there were three teams who tied for first place with 138's. The three teams included James Magee and David Lyman, Scott Hester and Jacob Hester and Gary Moffitt and Jeremy Lemmons. All three duos shot in the low 70's on Saturday, but trimmed their scores into the mid-60's during Sunday's round.

Organizers offered their thanks to all who helped support the annual scramble, and to all those who participated.
