McCloud Open: Selkirk proves age is no barrier

MCCLOUD, CA (August 7, 2005) -- Carl Selkirk's wife was doing some cycling in the McCloud area, about 150 miles North of his home in Chico this weekend, so he decided to enter the McCloud Open golf tournament at the 9-hole McCloud Golf Course. Selkirk has a longtime connection to the golf course - his Scottish uncle helped design and build it in the 1920's.

The fact that Selkirk will turn 62 in October and the tournament was lacking a 'senior' division provided no advantage to the rest of the field.

"I was playing with some guys in their 20's the first day," explained Selkirk, who shot 68 in the first round. "At the end of the round, they said 'You know, you're a pretty good golfer for an old guy.'"

Pretty good indeed. Despite finishing 4-over-par for his last three holes after missing the old-school greens and failing to get up-and-down, Selkirk's score of 3-under-par 141 was good for a 7 stroke victory. He will be back in his age bracket soon, as one of his next major events is the US Amateur qualifier on August 22nd.
