  • Dream of a lifetime comes true...

    When golf is your passion, your dreams revolve around golf.

    Maybe you dream about winning the club championship someday, or shooting an even par score. Maybe you hope to break 100 or 90 or 80.

    A beginner might want to get his handicap down to 30; a seasoned player might dream of getting down to single digits. A junior golfer may watch the U.S. Open and dream of being in the ranks of the PGA Tour someday; a seasoned golfer may dream of living long enough and playing well enough to shoot his age.

    Mona Dye from Brierwood shot a 75 to lead Club 25 Ladies Golf League at Crow Creek on June 16. Sandy Hulberg (Lakes) was second and Mei Lu Pierce (Myrtle Beach National) was third. Kitty Fox (Lakes) and Suzanne Moro (Wacchesaw Plantation) tied for fourth, while Dale Calhoon (Brick Landing), Shari Hodson (Lakes) and Pat Shutzman (Carolina National) tied for sixth.

  • NASCAR says no more complaints...

    NASCAR has moved to limit negative complaints about the new car and other racing-related matters.

    NASCAR president Mike Helton had a mandatory meeting and told all drivers and car owners he was tired of hearing negative complaints about the new-generation car, problems with racetracks and other things.

    Apparently driver complaints reached a critical point with the powers-that-be after the Pocono race.

  • Dub Fulford, Poole win at Myrtle...

    MYRTLE BEACH, S.C.—Tommy Poole of Brunswick County won for the sixth time this season in the Street Stock race Saturday at Myrtle Beach Speedway.

    Poole, the points leader, finished ahead of David Hatchell, Kent Bellamy, Dean Cumbee and Clay Gossett.

    Dub Fulford of Brunswick County won for the third time in the Mini-Stock race. Dub, the points leader, finished ahead of Willie Fulford, Mark Evans, Adam Fulford and Lucas Williams.

  • Summer school for young team

    The weather is so hot that for a moment you hope you could hear these words over the public-address system at the West Brunswick High School baseball field: “Game canceled.”

    Instead, you pay two dollars for a drink and a Snickers candy bar (“Not going anywhere for a while?”) and get set to watch the Southwest Trojans play New Hanover in a Junior American League baseball game.

  • Helpful tips for upsizing...

    By this time of year, throughout many parts of the country, bass have seen a fair amount of fishing pressure. Common sense tells us bass in this situation can become harder to catch and luring them to bite requires downsizing both line and bait. While this may be a good tactic for most places, targeting pressured bass in summer doesn’t always require picking up a spinning rod and a finesse bait.

  • Jolly Mon King Classic this...

    It is Jolly Mon tournament time.

    This weekend the Ocean Isle Fishing Center will host the annual Yellowfin/Yamaha Jolly Mon King Classic fishing tournament. The Jolly Mon tournament has become one of the Southeast’s largest King Mackerel tournaments, last year registering 360 boats from all over the Southeast to compete for the first-place prize of more than $25,000. Of course, there are more places than first: the tournament actually pays for the largest 31 kings caught.

  • Flounder tournament has a close...

    The winner of the 25th annual Flounder Tournament was decided by 0.01 pounds.

    Jeff Shaver’s winning weight of 7.27 pounds edged Randy Parnell’s weight of 7.26 pounds.

    Ricky Lefler was third (6 pounds). He also had the five heaviest fish (19.39 pounds.)

    Mickey Cochran was fourth (6.30 pounds). Adam Sellers was fifth (6.29). Ken Parrish was sixth (5.77).

    The Edith Pigott Lady Angler award, sponsored by Guy C. Lee & Co., was won by Traci Bruce (3.13 pounds).

  • Now is the time to try your hand...

    I have always been a big proponent of night fishing. With the recent heat wave that has greeted us with June’s arrival, there is no better time to try it. Most people have two big reservations about fishing after sunset: it is either inconvenient or they just don’t believe fish bite after the sun goes down.
