Howard: Some good news

These men do better than par

Two local golfers, along with a busload of fans, will travel to Charlotte, N.C., for the induction ceremony of the National Black Golf Hall of Fame July 12-13.

Wilson Stone, 84, of Silverton, and Percy Marshall, 90, of Kennedy Heights, will be inducted during a dinner July 12 in the Hyatt Charlotte at South Park.

Several local golfers also will participate in the two-day Hall of Fame tournament, held at the Renaissance Golf Course in Charlotte.

Stone and Marshall were chosen because of their contributions to local golf programs and for passing on their skills to younger players.

Both played at the Avon Golf Course in North Avondale in the 1940s.

The late Jimmie Woods of Avondale was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1993.
