If you remember the movie “Young Guns” you know it was about a band of young men who shot down a whole slew of older men. This past Tuesday, July 26th a modified version of the movie took place at the Jackson Parish Golf Course when a band of five guys, all under the age of 25, shot down the competition.
The difference was instead of using “shooting irons” the five man team of Hunter Alexander, Drew Huddleston, Cason Womack, Hunter Ford and Brett Mauthe used their “long and short irons” to fire a 10 under par, round of 26 over the nine hole layout to take the weekly Tuesday Scramble.
On Tuesday of each week the Jackson Parish Recreaton Department sponsors a scramble format tournament where teams are formed based on handicap and average scores of the players. Each team is assigned an A Player, B Player, C Player and so on, allowing for golfers, regardless of their skill to have an equal chance of winning. To register ahead of time, call the Jackson Parish Golf Course at 318-259-7427 or sign up in the Pro Shop at least 30 minutes prior to tournament tee time.
