Ageless Brockwell again wears Ken-Tenn crown

Age was just a number to Mickey Brockwell.
The 55-year-old Fulton native bested the field that included a number of younger challengers to win the championship flight of the annual Ken-Tenn Golf Tournament last weekend.
It was the third Ken-Tenn title for Brockwell — but first in 10 years.
Brockwell needed an extra hole to dethrone last year’s title winner, Robert Lents. Brockwell birdied the playoff hole after Lentz shot a 68 on Sunday to forge a tie and force extra play.
Both men shot 134 in regulation.
Brad Canter and Scott Carpenter each finished at 137 and tied for third, with Canter winning a scorecard playoff for the position. Matt Madden was fifth in the championship flight with a two-day 140 total.
A number of local residents also fared well in various flights in the tournament.
Matt Russell took top honors in the First Flight, finishing with a 138 — two strokes better than John Campbell. Steve Copre was third (141), Scott McDade (142) fourth, and Todd Beadles another stroke back at fifth.
In the Second Flight, Garrett Adams (144) topped the leaderboard, followed by John Slayton, who was three shots back. David Hawks (148) placed third, with Scotty Butler — via a scorecard playoff — was fourth and Tim Dossett fifth after both finished at 151.
Honors in the Third Flight were decided by the scorecards of Zac Bell and Josh McFarland, both of whom came in at 154. Bell was awarded first place, McFarland second. Johnny Macrum finished third at 155, while Jeff Vowell (fourth place) and Nate Moore (fifth) both registered a 156 score.
Bob Huntsberger won the Senior Division, firing a 145. David Holland finished a shot back, while Jerry Carpenter (156) was third, Gary Grooms (156) fourth, and Jim Bushart (162) fifth.
Organizers say 140 golfers participated in one of the longest-running amateur tournaments in Western Kentucky/Tennessee.
