Wadkins brothers commit to Kroger Senior Classic
By Jack Murray
The Cincinnati Enquirer
Major winner Lanny Wadkins, whose nonchalant demeanor belies a fierce competitor, has committed to play in his first Kroger Senior Classic Aug. 27-Sept.2 at the Golf Center at Kings Island. Wadkins, winner of 21 PGA Tour events, including the 1977 PGA Championship, was a member of eight U.S. Ryder Cup teams and captained the 1995 squad. He has one victory in on the senior circuit.
Also committing: Bobby Wadkins, Lanny's brother; and previous champions Jim Colbert, Mike Hill and Hugh Baiocchi, plus Gary McCord and Stuart Ginn. Defending champ Hubert Green is also among the 62 entries thus far.
Franklin's Frank Lickliter celebrated his first appearance in the British Open with a 6-iron ace at the 212-yard fifth Friday. Union's Steve Flesch, who tied for 20th in his first British Open last year, failed to qualify for the final two rounds this year.
Tony Bosken of Fairfield won the 15-16 age group of the Florida Junior Invitational in a four-way, four-hole playoff at Mission Inn Golf Course in Howey-In-The-Hills, Fla. Since winning the 1999 Glenview Junior Club Championship, Bosken has won seven events and recorded 18 top-5 finishes.
Ashley Duff, 2000 Met Junior Girls champ, finished first in the 16-18 age group junior tournament July 19 at Eagles Landing Golf Club in Oregon, Ohio. It was her second victory in the 12-tournament series around Ohio.
