It's time to get serious about entering the American Express/Toyota Celebrity Golf Tournament set for Oct. 22 and 23 at Eagle's Landing Golf Course in Ocean City.

The most recent celebrity is Tony "The Toe" Linhart, who was the Baltimore Colts place kicker for seven years.

Sam Perlozzo, erstwhile third-base coach of the Seattle Mariners baseball team in the American League, has also lined up such greats as Mariner hitting coach Ken Griffey Sr., Kevin Grevy of the Bullets, Larry Brown and Ron McDole of the Washington Redskins, Tony Paige from the Miami Dolphins, Don Nottingham of the Colts and Mike Wilcher of the Los Angeles Rams. Mr. Perlozzo is the brother of Tom Perlozzo, the director of the Ocean City parks department.

Nobody could stay near the torrid pace set by Eric Eutsler, JiMcLaren, Rob Miller and Tom Quillen in last week's Pine Shore Sunday morning scramble. The foursome compiled a fantastic 47 score, merely 13 strokes under par. In second place were two teams shaking their heads at posting 52s and winding up five strokes back.

Then, last Monday, the Pine Shore evening scramble went to Jack Reed, Joe Foley, John Weippert and Steve Tressull with a 1-under 29. The next day Dorothea Algiers, Sue Young, Millie Snowman and Maron Nickerson tied with Lorraine Breidenbach, Geneva Burnside, Connie Wells and Jodie Higdon, with both teams posting 64s in the Pine Shore Ladies League Tuesday morning scramble.

Continuing the Pine Shore schedule of at least one tournament each day, the Wednesday morning scramble went to the TC threesome of Leon Monroe, Harry Sharkey and August Wirthu with a neat 49 or 11-under.

There is a clinic available for a $10 fee from 9 a.m.-10 a.m. Wednesdays, limited to five people. The daily Pine Shore tournaments are open to the public by calling (410) 641-5100.
