SCOTT WEYMOUTH of Scarborough got into last week's Maine Amateur as the second alternate in qualifying at Biddeford-Saco. He made the most of his opportunity by having his best tournament in about a dozen appearances. Weymouth, a member at the Woodlands, tied for 14th with rounds of 74, 74 and 73 for a 221 total. He finished "in the money," earning $130 in merchandise.
"I played a bunch of Maine Amateurs back in the 1990s and never had much success," he said. "I played pretty steady. I had some jitters at the start of the first round, but told myself to have fun."
LOWELL WATSON shot his age for the first time in a recent Maine State Golf Association seniors tournament at Fairlawn. Watson, 67, shot a 66.
AN AMERICAN JUNIOR Golf Association tournament will be played July 28-31 at Sugarloaf. The Coca Cola Junior Championship, for ages 12 to 18, will have a field of 144 players from as far away as Hong Kong.
NOT ONLY did Ryan Gay of Pittston turn pro after last week's Maine Amateur, so did JJ Harris of Bath. Their first pro event was the Exotics Pro-Am Series, held Friday at Bath Country Club. The five-tournament series is sponsored by Harris Golf. The next tournament will be Aug. 1 at Penobscot Valley. 1. First prize for the winning pro is $2,000.
