Bill Glasson, winner of the Kemper Open at Congressional, has joined some formidable golfers committed to play in the PGA Tour's $500,000 Anheuser-Busch Classic in Williamsburg July 11-14. Also on hand will be Kingsmill host pro and leading money winner Curtis Strange, former Richmonder Lanny Wadkins, Hale Irwin, Ray Floyd, Hal Sutton, Willie Wood, Ben Crenshaw, Wayne Levi and last year's champion, Ronnie Black.
Black came from behind to win with a final-round 63, the lowest final round on the PGA Tour last year. His seven-stroke overhaul of third-round leader Wood was also the biggest deficit made up on the final day by a winner.
The status of two-time Anheuser winner Calvin Peete remains uncertain. Peete, winner of the Tournament Players Championship this season, has been plagued with a bad back, which forced him to withdraw recently from the U.S. Open in Birmingham, Mich.
Gary Marlowe of Rockville and Woodmont Country Club will defend his Maryland Open title at Chartwell in Severna Park July 8-10. Marlowe, who played on the PGA Tour last year but did not retain his playing card, had a hernia operation over the winter and now plays on the Middle Atlantic PGA circuit.
Tony Ciconte and Geoff Gonella of Columbia shot best-ball scratch 68 to win the seventh Jack Understein Adult-Junior at Washingtonian. Marty West and Mike Svec, also of Columbia, were second at 70. Proceeds will create three $1,500 scholarships for area student golfers.
Ron Millner of Colchester Range in Woodbridge, Va., arrived at a score of 79 in an unusual manner in a recent Middle Atlantic PGA pro-am at Wakefield Valley in Westminster, Md. He drove two balls out of bounds and scored 11 on the eighth hole, then followed with a hole in one using a four-iron on the par-3, 186-yard ninth. Had he contributed to the MAPGA hole-in-one club, he would have been $700 richer.
Larry Ringer made a hole in one in the Cumberland Pro-am June 21. The event was won by Fred Funk, who had tied for 22nd in the U.S. Open.
Kim Cayce, 14, daughter of Congressional head pro Kent Cayce, won the 14-and-under girls division by 11 strokes in the recent 54-hole South Atlantic Junior tournament at Crofton. Kim Cayce, who took up golf at the age of 3, shot 81-86-78 -- 245. Marian Sison of Arlington was second at 256.
John Lynch of Wilmington, Del., won the boys 16-17 divison with 229. Hap Peden of Rockville was second after a three-way playoff among golfers at 231. Tom Iredell of Rockville tied for first in the 14-15 division with 236, but lost in a playoff when Bill Loftus of Suffern, N.Y., birdied the first extra hole.
The 11th annual Bobby Bowers Memorial junior tournament will be Monday, July 8 through Thursday, July 11 at Springfield. In addition to the boys and girls tournament, about $4,000 in proceeds will go to a scholarship fund for student golfers.
