 A total of 24 teams participated in the fourth annual Sim Cooley Memorial Golf Tournament on July 30 at Bear Creek Golf Club.

The tournament funds three scholarships each year – one each at Northeast Jones, South Jones and West Jones – for students to attend Jones County Junior College.

Coach Cooley was the head football coach at JCJC from 1961-87 and was a member at Bear Creek Golf Club. There is a plaque commemorating his hole-in-one on No. 3 at BCGC in 1995.

Ken Keyes, Greg Walters and Jon Diggetts blistered the course with a 16-under par 56 to win the tournament. Wedgeworth/Wedgeworth/Schutz and Thomas/Thomas/Smith were second at 61. Cameron/Cameron/Murchie won the second flight by a scorecard playoff over the Community Bank team. Both of those teams shot a 68.

A hamburger dinner was served after the round and all participants received a door prize.
