Records takes 2nd Md. Seniors with late pars


October 25, 2003|By John W. Stewart

Joe Records, struggling with putting, won his second Maryland State Golf Association Seniors Championship in three years with pars on his last two holes at Baltimore Country Club yesterday.

Records, 57, a Hillendale Country Club member who also won in 2001, his first year of eligibility, shot 75-76-151 over the 6,386-yard East Course to turn back Baltimore Country Club's Bob Lee and Breton Bay Golf and Country Club's Dick Stearns, both at 153.

One over par at the turn in the 75th Seniors event, Records reached all nine back greens in regulation, but five bogeys nearly did him in. His 76 was the cool day's best round.

A par at the 16th hole got Lee, the 1996 champ, even with Records, but a bogey-bogey finish dropped him back. Stearns, 72, one of the field's oldest players, holed a 120-yard eagle-3 at No. 14 and parred the 16th but bogeyed No. 18.
